Life is full of possibilities

I come bearing positive stuff, no bad vibes for a brief moment.

J has deemed The Eagles cool - he heard a cd at a friend's place and deemed it acceptable.  Came home, searched our cd collection (he doesn't understand LPs), extracted the Greatest Hits album, and went on his merry way to listen to it.  Now I think some of The Eagles earlier stuff is shit, but Hotel California and The Long Run are on my alltime favourite album list.  After weeks of listening to Atreyu (it occasionally sounds like the lead singer is having his balls bitten off whilst singing) and pleasant numbers such as Blood Children, This Flesh a Tomb, My Sanity on the Funeral Pyre, and Five Vicodin Chased with a Shot of Clarity, the sheer pleasure of listening to the strains of Take It Easy and Life In The Fast Lane has made my life a little more pleasant.  Once again life comes down to fragments of moments - talking to J about Ted Hughes' poetry, sitting in the backyard with BM watching a pair of Australian Ravens build a nest in a nearby gumtree, a glimmer of academic understanding during an online chat with my lecturer, and J being able to appreciate music that I like, and more importantly, can listen to without physical pain.  It really is the simple things ...

LOL, Deb - soooo with you on the listeining to music that doesn't cause physical pain! My daughter and I, fortunately, like enough of the same stuff that she is willing to accomodate me most of the time and not play the ones she knows will make me cringe. Most of the time...never take a long car trip with an i pod carrying indie band fan. Makes you want to drive into a tree. LOL
J usually gives me a ride to uni on Wed mornings - it's absolute agony for my ears. I made some comment about the quality of the singing last week and he said to me, very seriusly, "you're treading on thin ice, Mum". I suffer in silence now ;)!
LOL - tell him I said moms don't tread on thin ice; we ARE the ice and he'd better figure that out soonest.
