A head is an awful place to live.


Today’s Music: Ravel – Bolero

This seems to be the time of year when exhaustion, apathy and wtf all collide in a perfect storm inside my head. It happens every so often. Nothing for me to do but ride the wave and find my moments where I can. On the bright side, it finally feels like spring here. Only seven weeks late.

So I’ll be playing with my trains, reading books about Roosevelt and Taft, the Mediterranean, and rereading a stack of books before reading (what better be) the final installment of a ten book cycle.
I’ll still be cooking, and maybe I’ll even try baking bread again.

And eventually, I’ll snap out of it. The Hawaiian shirts, the music, food, stories – all of it adds up, and it’ll re-anchor me to the world. I’ll come back and tell you about the Motorcycle Safety Class, and whatever happened with Big Brothers/Big Sisters. We’ll listen to some great music. Oh, and I’ll try and finish writing the hanggliding adventure. Maybe I’ll give you the story about when Steve screwed his hand to the ceiling. That isn’t a metaphor, by the way – he literally screwed his hand to the ceiling. And there might even be more polls.

The last few months have been exhausting. I’m taking a short break. You’ll still see me reading and commenting on your stuff, because I love the stories, but I doubt I’ll be posting for a bit, aside from the random one-off (I have a beatnik Poetry Slam I don’t want to waste).
Mostly, I’ll be spending time with TMWGITU.

And as so often happens, Shakespeare said it best:
“If we do meet again, why, we shall smile. If not, why then this parting was well made.”

Rock on.
Goofy

  1. We all need a break, Guap. I hope you have a good one and come back to us as refreshed as ever! πŸ˜‰

    PS – I used WTF on my blog one day and my mother asked me what it meant so I told her it’s what comes after Monday, Tuesday – MTWTF πŸ˜€

Not sure if it’s translated or not, but I’m sure it is. Watch it. Then ago surfing. Better yet, go surfing with a beach pik-nik and the lady with the long acronym, then watch the movie holding her hand, then go surfing again.

  98. Thanks for calling in Guap,
    hey I keep calling into your G+

    much, your last posting was
    a long time ago but if you are
    ever in the vicinity call into
    my page, I am sure that there
    will be something to whet
    your appetite, oh yes fore sure πŸ™‚ lol

  110. Is it time for another posting yet Guap?
    Well I only asked, by the way I have added
    some more Steampunk for you, not on the
    leading page, oh no, those are in the header
    and the 18+ section πŸ™‚ How do you mean
    you will be right over? Oh okay, just don’t
    get your spectacles steamed up in the process,

  112. Believe this: I was just thinking about you a couple of days ago and VOILA’ (French for….oh, I forget…) your comment in the box called “Jot’s Comment Box” came buzzing through!!!!!!! That’s a true story. Glad, actually, more than glad you dropped by. Now I know you are OK. Me, too. Appreciate you asking. Actually, more than appreciate. Did you get that hug I sent to both you and TMWGITU? Here’s another………R.

  123. Guapsterola…I’m just coming off of my hiatus and you’re going on yours. Aaaaah. The season of recoup and refill. I notice the Music choice today is Bolero. That’s the same tune repeated 14 times. If that doesn’t mend your rest…then..start with the “A” artists and proceed through the alphabet. Take care of yourself.
