Long Day

I did not see the sunshine today. I had to be at work early for some high profile work and I haven’t been outside. There is a very loud noise in the computer room that sounds like a TV turned up all the way….except it’s not on a channel. When you come out of the room, your ears roar for hours. That can’t be good.
My mind drifted away, trying to imagine what it would be like to never have to hear that sound again. The thought of that brought a smile to my face. My really good friend
Ken did this work for many years and he retired in March I know of several companies that have called him to offer him a job. Each time he just smiles and says, “I think I’ll pass.” He’s always loved music and he had made MP3’s out of all his records, tapes, and CD’s. When he was doing computer work, he never had time to organize his collection. The last time I talked to him, he was listening to them all and getting things in order. He sounded happy.
There are so many things I want to do, but can never seem to find the time. My blog gets the short end of the (time) stick, and I’ve written too few songs this year. My shed is a mess and you could grow corn on my truck….and speaking for growing things, I tried a container garden in the spring but the heat, lack of time and inexperience reduced the harvest to a few tomatoes and some hot pepper.
My friend Brian came through his brain surgery just fine. I think when he gets back to work, I’m going to put in for a week of vacation and hike somewhere deep in the woods so the only sounds I hear are the sounds of Mother Nature.
