So Sorry Willie, but Franz Outbid You Today

Good morning from the Edge. It’s still morning where I am. A cold, dreary (the good dreary), rainy but not raining, Saturday morning. Earlier, writing my morning words, I felt it to be a “Willie Nelson kind of day.”  Uncharacteristically, the TV was on (Twilight Zone – figures, huh lol). The first commercial had Willie’s vocals in the background. Kinda set the mood. Willie, Rod….

When I tapped into the YouTube, Franz Liszt’s Liebestraum – Love Dream clip appeared in my group of musical suggestions. Even without a background in classical music, many of you recognize this piece. In my youth, in another age, I played this very piece my own self. How is it we lose abilities, talents and joy while living…life?

At this moment, from my small room on the third floor, I hear the wind blowing outside of my 2 windows – teasing with intermittent howling, very cool whistling sounds. I find it quite comforting.

I’m laughing to myself sitting here upon my “bed”, pillowed back against the wall. Legs outstretched, my laptop resting upon my upper thighs lending a bit of warmth. In more ways than one. Blanketed, nose cold, hood up, my fingerless gloved hands resting on the keyboard, I’m ready to write a list of Ten.

  1. Classical music.
  2. Beethoven. My favorite.
  3. Having once been able to play some of the great classical pieces.
  4. Musical instruments.
  5. Today’s weather. To some, it’s dreadful. For me, today, it’s wonderful! It’s providing a very fall-like, temporary escape. I’m totally loving it.
  6. The knowledge that I will be going out into the day with a huge appreciation for all that I have.
  7. A renewed committment to writing, creating and otherwise feeding my artistic self.
  8. the Wakefield Doctrine.
  9. I still have a job.
  10. Another day.

Enjoy this day my friends. It is the only one that matters.  So, from (me and) Willie –

“It’s been so long now,
 But it seems now, that it was only yesterday
 Gee, ain’t it funny, how time slips away.”
