Another term comes to a close. I didn’t fare as well as I had planned in the end, but I think that’s because I really have to get away from here.
You all know how I just love the summertime… UGH! Heat, humidity and headaches. Oh well, I’ll get through this one just like every other.
Saturday marks our first wedding anniversary, so Leslie and I are returning to our summer place for ten more days of rest, relaxation and records… I hope that this trip proves as fruitful as the last.
The time comes to give up another one of those freeform exercises. This one was inspired by taking those visits around the land of blog and having my mind blown. It was just as exhilarating an experience as when I made that tape from the radio, which I finally found out just about all of the song titles and artists. For the past month, I’ve been totally immersed in anything Psychedelia. Fuzz… Sunshine… Freakout!!! There was a time so long ago. I’m sure you’ve all been there at least once. Well for me, it was 1986. MTV was playing the first of many marathons of Monkees episodes. I found Sgt. Pepper for the first time… and botanicals… I look back on it all and don’t regret a single minute. Yeah, young and stupid I was. I guess saying if I knew then what I know now isn’t really necessary. Now that I’ve put my heart on my sleeve again, let’s get to the food… brain food, as the image below may suggest.
