Return

Yes I know it has been a long time since I updated my blog.  Since my trip to Spain a lot has happened.  Some if it really great, some not so great, and some just plain tragic, but that’s what makes life such a rich pageant.  I won’t discuss the not so great and just plain tragic parts simply because sharing news of that type is frankly tedious to write and not worth reading.  I will stick to what I find interesting, humorous, and well, positive. 

I like to think of this blog as a reflection of the music I like to here on the radio.  Music that portrays the feeling of loss, depression, whining, crying, bitching and moaning is not for me.  Unless its painfully ironic and filled with angst I would rather get a feeling of being uplifted, challenged by the music to achieve more whilst having fun.  The music of Rush, is a fine example of this. 
“Something For Nothing”

Waiting for the winds of change
To sweep the clouds away
Waiting for the rainbow’s end
To cast its gold your way
Countless ways
You pass the days

Waiting for someone to call
And turn your world around
Looking for an answer
To the question you have found
Looking for
An open door

You don’t get something for nothing
You can’t have freedom for free
You won’t get wise
With the sleep still in your eyes
No matter what your dreams might be

What you own is your own kingdom
What you do is your own glory
What you love is your own power
What you live is your own story
In your head is the answer
Let it guide you along
Let your heart be the anchor
And the beat of your own song

 

It’s one of the reasons I do not enjoy Country or Western.  Just one of many, but that’s another story.

So on to the rollercoaster ride with out the dips into hell.

To be continued…..

    I couldn’t make out what the steriogram is.

    Sorry you’ve had a bit of bad stuff. C’est la vie, yeah?

    I can never see the pictures in those things (steriogram??)

    Life is like being the target in a pie throwing competition: sometimes it’s apple … and sometimes it’s cow.

    Here’s some insight from Neil Peart on the afore mentioned song:

    Neil Peart states: “All those paeans to American restlessness and the American road carried a tinge of wistfulness, an acknowledgment of the hardships of the vagrant life, the notion that wanderlust could be involuntary, exile as much as freedom, and indeed, the understanding that freedom wasn’t free. In the mid-’70s, the band was driving to a show in downtown Los Angeles, at the Shrine Auditorium, and I noticed some graffiti splattered across a wall: ‘Freedom isn’t free,’ and I adapted that for a song on 2112, ‘Something for Nothing'”.
