It's a drag when one's bursting at the seams to write on a topic, but the time and place are completely wrong. Multiply that by at least five and you may understand where I'm sitting. I'm nearing crucial stages on three major projects, and I've gotten a mixture of very good and potentially very bad news -- which will affect how I proceed with the projects. I may or may not write any more about any of this here, but these things are tugging at my mind enough that today's writing goal has become very simple: Throw up a quick post on something I like and get down to some crucial thinking about these other matters!
So, here we go, with a blues song that makes me laugh every time I hear it, "I Ain't Drunk," by Albert Collins.
And, just for a change of pace, I occasionally enjoy listening to Gregorian chant, although I am an atheist.
My first CD of Gregorian chant came to be somewhat by chance. I received it due to a Yankee swap at a Christmas party of an Objectivist Club years ago. I was inclined to trade at first, but someone talked me into at least giving the music a ... chance (sorry!). I found it enjoyable and relaxing, and the music ended up on my iPod, where I rediscovered it this week.
