2018: Day 137 the one with a few reflections and some snacks
Oh the years do seem to blink on by at a pace that is mindblowing. Today was a day of reflection, triumph, abitition, and struggle. It was a mixed bag to say the least. At this very moment I’m listening to a recording of Joe Satriani play the Summer Song. A screenshot of that might very well be the thumbnail associated with this post. You might be surprised to find out that song is one of my favorite immersions into the world of electric guitar virtuosity. Maybe today was one of those days where I was full of advice to give, but short on advice to take to figure out how to go about catching up. Tomorrow may well be Friday and that is something that I am looking forward to this week. More or less to just to let things reset for next week. I try to embrace every day as an opportunity to strive forward. Every day presents an opportunity.
For some reason here at the end of the day I’m stuck in a very reflective mood. So much so that I have moved to my Joe Satriani Pandora internet radio station tonight. That one is usually reserved for periods of extreme concentration. Instrumental guitar albums are generally awesome background noise to help me concentrate. They occupy just enough of my thoughts to really let me focus in on something. Writing or working on something with extreme focus when it is absolutely silent just never seems to work out very well. It is entire possible that is just a quirk of how I relate to the world and the way i like to go about things. Sure it could work for others. I just turned down the screen brightness on my ASUS C101P to the lowest setting before the screen goes black. Soon enough it will be time to go to sleep and rest up for tomorrow.
