For many years I've wanted to join the fast internet users but until last week I was using a dial-up modem. My youngest daughter sent me a DSL modem and now I'm able to use Gather without the long waits that frustrated me silly.
Now that I'm using the Internet comfortably (at long last) I decided to make my first-ever playlist on my MySpace page. I chose mostly sixties music. We're allowed to put ten songs on our profiles. Here's what I have in my playlist:
Catch the Wind - Donovan
Haven't Got Time For the Pain - Carly Simon
The Fool - Quicksilver Messenger Service
There But For Fortune - Joan Baez
Season of the Witch - Donovan
Box of Rain - Grateful Dead
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere - Neil Young
Broken Wings - Mr. Mister
Pack Up Your Sorrows - Mimi and Richard Farina
I Can't Wait To Meetchu - Macy Gray (the only contemporary singer of the bunch!)
My oldest daughter turned me onto this amazing Macy Gray song. We both love it.
I also added a video to my page about PAS - Parental Alienation Syndrome... something that has given me a lot of grief. You'll have to go to the MySpace page for those details. Some things are hard to write about twice in one week.
Wow, did anyone mention HOLIDAYS? I've had a love-hate relationship with Christmas for many years. Let's see... I'm 56 now and I think I've had this problem for at least 45 of those years! Therefore, Bah, Humbug!!! LOL... my youngest child left home last summer and I now declare my independence from having to celebrate Christmas. Honestly, I've never been a Christian and I don't see why I should celebrate a holiday that doesn't feel right for me.
Rather than sitting around grumpy, I decided to create a holiday that does mean something to me. Therefore I'm now celebrating The Festival of the Inner Light - a three-month joy-filled holiday of evolving creative alchemy and humane insight.
By the way, if you feel you deserve a gold star you're welcome to copy and keep my gold star graphic. I think we all deserve gold stars today.
Hugs to all...
