Sleeping ...

... I used to listen to WDET when their format allowed for music ... since they have changed formats, I haven't bothered ... I felt betrayed by the station as I listened to EVERYTHING they played ... jazz to celtic, from indie rock to bluegrass, WDET was a one stop station.  Listen long enough, you would hear Rhinoceros to Wire to Tom Waits ... a good mix of music ...Inner and Outer Demons that is a link to a journal that caught my attention.  I gather that the journalist is a photographer, and he seems to be forthright with his journaling. 

His series of holdiay photos, filled with the emptiness that has become the holiday season were very good.  I am going to look at them again at some point, because I could feel my fingers twitching ... I think I could get some inspiration to write from them ...

Speaking of writing ... I think I am going to put my story short on a disc, so that I can take it with me ... outside of my usual wake up <and I have something to report on that ...>, I won't be able to just sit at the computer with lil' Mook out for school ...

... ah, lil' Mook ... great kid ... but knows NOTHING of struggle or deprivation ... why else would she be careless with her things ..?  She lost a set of contacts when she first got them ... had a pair of sneaks stolen at school ... and this X-Mas, sat on her super fly digital camera ... she is actually responsible, but she has lapses in judgement ... Mookie said she got at her ... she was quite contrite most of the night ... I am going to leave that alone ... since it has been handled ...

Thanks for the link and the mention.  Those photos were taken for an art school project in 1987.  I'm a humor writer and cartoonist for Hallmark.  

I was careless with my stuff as a kid (five million years ago) too.  Lapses in judgement?  I collect those!
