Things I like today:
*The Black Crowes: Listening on seeqpod right now. Brings me back to college for just a minute. Don't you think I want to/Don't you think I would
*Bon Ami: my sink is shiny. Hasn't scratched yet.
*More With Less: Just sat and read it waiting for dinner to cook. It's the only cookbook that makes me emotional. The full belly says a ripe guava has worms/The empty belly says let me see.
And then, alone this evening, everyone else in bed, I'm indulging in that bad habit of nostalgia I'm prone to. Ever since I completed the 365 songs project, I've been pretty nostalgia-free. Kinda purged all that. But put on the right music in the right quiet, and there I am again.
Modern westerners think we face the future--we are striding forwards always, leaving our pasts behind us. Ancient Greeks thought we were always facing backwards, studying the past. The future is behind us, creeping up and surprising us.
