Coming back to el jay after all this time for a quick checkup is kinda like coming back to your hometown after years and seeing a rickety old building you remember as a kid. You weren't sure what was holding it together even back then, and you figured what with the natural disasters the region's occasionally prone to, and the natural decay of Old Father Time, no way is that motherfucker still standing, probably a WALMART supercenter there by now. But here it is. And you aren't exactly happy about it out of a love for that structure, nor are you disappointed hoping time'd get back at something that burned you. It's just a very deep, huh.

92 degrees today? Weren't they calling for snow little more than three weeks ago? I think it might be time to relocate to a more temperate climate.

From my regularly scheduled taletelling to remind you all it is 9-9-9, which is something that won't happen again in our lifetime(s).

Richard Wright died today. He was always my favorite member of Pink Floyd, and provided most of the elements I liked about the songs, and influenced the keyboard playing I've done with the bands I've been in. . . It's a drag, so I think today I'll listen to a lot of Floyd.

One has to question doing something as inherently narcissistic as getting a livejournal at a time in one's life when one feels that their identity is dissipating. It's a side-effect of time. I've got nothing to say but it's OK.

Clear sky now. Everyone was in a panic about Hanna, but all I ever saw was a mild breeze and drizzling. I'm actually disappointed, lately I've been swooning with nostalgia about 2003 and this time of year I can't help but be reminded of Isabel. I've been thinking about it for a while, earlier in the summer I thought that next time a hurricane/tropical storm came up I would drive down to the Carolina coast and watch it. There's always been something about it I've enjoyed, and something I miss now that I live further inland.

But now it's over, like a lot of things. The texture of time never fails to blow my mind. It's speeding up. 2008 is 3/4 over, I'm just about done with 21, and all seemingly shortly after I got comfortable with these new numbers. It gets faster, you know. I'm getting old, too. And now it's past nightfall and almost ten and soon it will never be September 6, 2008 again. I find it all so disorienting.
