About Change...


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
So It is Friday Afternoon,and this song linked to the title is about Change by Eric Clapton, and has been bouncing in my head everyday all week as I sweep Rains and Muck out of my basement. (and I am lucky, the rest of the State is suffering too, worse Flooding in 100 years).It is over 98 effin degrees, 104 Heat Index, and so humid I can scrape the" air "off my arm with a butter knife. (Heat Index104??? whateverthe-Eff that means???there are suposed to be Thunderstorms rolling through this eve ). My son is battling a horrendous ear infection and I have been battling a sinus/resp crud ( ala basement petrie dish ). So we have been eating alot of soup and not talking much...because my throat is sore and he can't hear ...ohmy...

It is true I have a pension for men wearing jeans playing ballads on their Guitar. So yes, today it Eric Clapton, Knopfler, and Nathan East singing about CHANGE...and yes, I was a BIG Blind Faith fan too....( Swear to god if The Edge [from U2] ever walked in here strummin, well I would die and go straight to heaven...no lie..and I don't even believe in Heaven....).

"Somebody Must Change....or I can't find My Way Home". That refrain has been stuck in my head all week. Sadly I realized that is why I watch Cspan relentlessly, it is this quest for Hope, For Change....for listening for Someone to say What is my head and my heart and Someone that can lead us Forward....

I will be back later tonight....with Friday Night Music and more...

Sorry to hear you are under the weather Enigma. I hope the weather gets better for you and your basement gets dried up.
Take care and I will check back tonight.

Sorry your not feeling well. I guess that explains why you haven't stopped by and read my last post.

Hope you feel better soon.

God Bless.

There is nothing worse than a winter cold in summer (unless it's a winter cold in winter). Gargle with warm salt water. Stock up Vick's Lozenges, the menthol-eucalyptus ones. Get better soon, both you & son!

ps, I'm with you on The Edge 100%. ~~ D.K.
