Summer is here

I've been pretty busy lately with a new job (just mini-wage warehouse stuff, nothing amazing) and trying to keep my head float, and figure out what I want to do with my life....I guess being nearly 28 makes you start planning things you want to do seriously.... It seems I'm one of those who end up wasting all their time running restlessly from one thing to the other without having the patience and calm necessary to gain real expertise and dedication.

I have many plans but it remains to be seen whether and how they will come to fruition. I need to put time and energy into making them grow before I can even begin to hope for fruit.

These (along with Astral Weeks) are easily my favourite albums, a perfect combination of precise singing, absolute sincerity and idealism. And the covers are fantastic. Music soothes the savage beast, or at least gives it a good ding about the lughole.

And we'll walk down the avenue again
And we'll sing all the songs from way back when
And we'll walk down the avenue again
And the healing has begun

And we'll walk down the avenue in style
And we'll walk down the avenue and we'll smile
And we'll say baby ain't it all worthwhile
When the healing has begun
