A month ago today I awoke, much the way a lot of the west coast did: to unspeakable horror and visuals on the television I could not believe. This, of course, can’t even compare to these events from the perspective of the individuals who dealt with them first hand and who’s lives were lost from this.
Because of these events I have had a lack of action here in this area I call my journal. There were no thoughts of enlightment I felt I could share, nothing I could say to make it all better and everything just seemed somewhat hollow.
Even though a month has passed I must admit that I still feel the same exact way about it all, but there is need to sit down and do things daily to not only maintain a sense of normalcy but to also maintain both ones focus and sanity. I used to look forward to sitting down and recording whatever random thoughts passed through my mind and many times would kick myself for not writing down the ideas as they came to me throughout the day. I want to look forward to that again.
So, today marks something… I’m not sure what exactly but it does in fact mark it. I will try, with some regularity, to actually sit down and type something at least on a weekday basis. I am sure that a particular entry for a given day will actually happen late at night, so the most you can usually expect to see is the entry for the day before.
Oh yeah, I’ll try to cary something with me at all times to record these thoughts of nonsense when they happen so I don’t sit here scratching my head wondering what the hell I thought would be so good to write about hours before but now only want to type inky dinky inky dinky over and over again for the next half hour because I have no clue what those thoughts were.
PS: I must say that I am incredibly impressed with our President by the way. I have a completely different opinion of the man now then when he was running for office. That’s all.
