Upon seemingly benign insistence by a guilefully sweet 5 year old in my life, I relented to a break in her floor scrubbing duties to hear the "Baby Shark Song". What could go wrong?
I've now outfitted the electric drill with a long-reach, 3/16 inch, tapered titanium bit, which appears to be the correct diameter for my auditory canal. I'm going in for removal...

No idea if you'll see this Wild Horses person but I have those animal experiences too; it's a crazy feeling right?? And so hard to explain to anyone! Sort of like a Dead show and now sort of like a Dead & Co. show. Pure magic.

Rather extraordinary offering from Amazon.uk this afternoon on a massive release that has met consistent critical and buyer acclaim, going for over $500 from most sources, this afternoon 66 BPS, or 85USD. There is a catch: printed material is in French, and while this does not prove a deterrent to me at 0.38 per disc (200 cds (see actual carted price below)), it may be a consideration for others.
EDIT: Regardless of list, I just carted for 55.40BPS w/ shipping to States for 3.08, a total currently equaling $75. GDP ought feel free to print the liner notes of my next box in any language of their choosing should it so drastically lower the release cost!

Last summer I was camped one night in the high desert of eastern Oregon, 60 miles from the nearest town, just sitting in my chair looking at the stars while my dog was snoozing in the car. Suddenly, five wild horses come walking up and stop about 25 feet away and just stand there, side by side, looking at me for a couple minutes and then slowly turn and walk away.

Saw, that too. I'm thinking of keeping a copy handy wherever I am as well...
Interesting he has this epiphany after such a cool gig (10-2-77)

Principles Of Adult Behavior
1. Be patient. No matter what.
2. Don’t bad-mouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldn’t say to him.
3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you.
4. Expand your sense of the possible.
5. Don’t trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change.
6. Expect no more of anyone than you can deliver yourself.
7. Tolerate ambiguity.
8. Laugh at yourself frequently.
9. Concern yourself with what is right rather than who is right.
10. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong.
11. Give up blood sports.
12. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Don’t risk it frivolously.
13. Never lie to anyone for any reason. (Lies of omission are sometimes exempt.)
14. Learn the needs of those around you and respect them.
15. Avoid the pursuit of happiness. Seek to define your mission and pursue that.

Back "home" last night. Staying at the lovely Bertram. Logan was a predictable mess. My parents' residence - the place I grew up - transfers next week after Christmas; no sound financial reason to have held on so long now. Lovely meal at The Abbey (prosciutto wrapped Asparagus, fresh burrata, fig and baby leaf salad then pan-roasted duck breast with smoked mashed potatoes, creamed savoy cabbage and red wine orange demi (food: my other obsession :) ); papers signed this afternoon - then a lovely couple mile evening walk around Fenway's shell. Home tomorrow; Boston is now just a hard memory.
Flight playlist comprised of contemporary Prog, which has become my preferred musical landscape of late. I wonder if a generation can recognize a Golden or Renaissance period mid-era? I suspect we're there, and have been for at least 10-15 years or so: Phideaux, Big Big Train, Southern Civilisation, Riverside, Haken ... and of course, this wouldn't be a tailored preference if I didn't comprehend some universally recognized acts like Pineapple Thief and Steve Wilson. I'm learning to live in the Wealth of the Moment, rather than the past; but, this insight has come at great personal loss. I suspect many of you have been pushed down this inevitable path long ago: here's to the bitter and the sweet; may our children not know until it's absolutely necessary.
