So it is Spring.

Let’s live a life of fun, love, and ideally logical bounty.  I have been in a mental slumber for the last few months.  Anyone that has followed this here spot knows that it’s a bit of a streaky creation.  I just appreciate any visits that are not spammy spiders.  I like the reminders of the past, nothing sad about what has already happened, it’s about looking ahead.  I certainly will try my best.  Now i’m off to work.  Who works on Saturday mornings? LAME>


I went for a walk today.  After a very long dog walk, I felt the need to walk to the blood bank spot to donate blood for the first time.  All and all a very chill experience.  I will do it again in March, why not right.  But the misty warm day was only missing the sea heavy smell of low tide when it came to taking my mind to the north west.  I’m not going to live in that area again, i’m pretty sure I have done all my pacific north west living.  The smells do work their way into my memories though, and subtle things like a not real rain rainy day and the scent of wed dirt.   Nothing really mossy smelling here in Champaign,  at lest not on todays walk.  So yeah, the wet dirt smell was close enough.  I digress.   This here car on top of the old Star Imports Garage use to blow my mind when I was a much younger chap.  It’s even cooler now that the building is no longer holding a business.   I have love bugs every since my Aunt Bettie rocked a muted orange one back in the late 70′s.  Yeah, just cool to see, that’s about it.  Nothing in depth about walking around today.  World Food Harvest was in full effect for lunch.  Giving blood was a breeze.  And the walk to my mothers to hang out and eventually head to Dos Reales made this day pretty rad.  The trippy zombie weather of this evening made the ride home from practice a bit gooouuuullish.  ahh ah ahh.


writing.. and not really writing.

I should be kinda good at this? The this is stated in the title.  And yeah, doesn’t really make sense unless you know how I think of myself as someone that wants to share, and feels full of grand ideas regarding writing… and then well… I find that time goes by often without me doing such.  Looking to change that.  I will donate blood this coming Monday, which will lead me to get going on a story about a local health food/nutrition spot.  Yep, the two will intersect.

Unrelated to writing lately, Music!  Been good around town lately.  I think I was fancying myself a pretty bad ass music fella, and felt like.. “whatever Champaign Urbana, it’s not what it use to be scene wise”  That is some pig headed shit, a fault that shows my age in a nasty lame way.  The good of this however is that I have been digging the lovely energy that I have heard and seen in CU, in terms of music.  This is where I could list off a few bands or producers that I have been feeling.  Yeah, I could do that…

Eye contact… some crazy cute eye contacts lately.  What is the deals?  I am stuck in all kinds of middle ground when it comes to going out, and trying to hang with folks.  I”m older than all of the homies that I have been energized by, tunes, drinking buddies, ladies, co workers… stuffs like that. When I think of what I should do to remedy the age thing, I come to fucked up things like, Join and hang out “older folks bars, happenings and the like”… I am super cool with aging, I have no problem with my age, I’m happy with who I am… but the thought of settling for some uninspiring social group sounds like some garbage.  I like Zero Garbage.  Whatever, things fall in place.  Or like Achebe titled on of his books, things fall apart.  One of those things happen right?
