Thanks for coming along with the ride.

New Ramblings of Silver Blue, September 2007-December 2007.

I’ve rambled enough. I will eventually open a blog based simply on music that I enjoy, but for now, my journey ends here.

Thanks for coming along on this journey.

As the world slept…

…has generic blogging “jumped the shark”? I’ve been noticing, with some interest, the number of blogs that are repositioning themselves in cyberspace. They’re tending to become more commercial (to be fair, I’ve had Adsense on my blog, but have yet to collect the first paycheck. In fact, in the almost two years that I’ve had it online, there’s been $55.04 in potential earnings made — but payout only happens at the $100 mark. November brought in .01), and less like an online rambling diary.

Myspace has become tiresome. I was at the mall the other day where they had kiosks for free internet access. All the teenagers were on either myspace or facebook trying to let people know where they were. Those that weren’t on computers were txt’ing on cell phones.

So the technology changes yet again. What is hot now will not be in six months. It’s practically impossible to keep up, unless you do nothing but spend all your time doing that.


How are you and your family celebrating the holidays? (Yes, holidays: Chanukah, Solstice, Christmas, Kwanza, and others.) I’m going through and clearning house. I’m donating clothes, household items, and things that I used to really fancy, but no longer bring me joy. I hope they’ll bring someone joy and happiness. It’s a cleansing process, one that is long overdue.

Music wise, things are interesting… and I’ll be compiling my top 50 (or 100) and putting online. Those that know their way around know how to get to it. But here’s a sampling:

And what is up, Silver Blue?

Hey there, readers! Long time, talk to. Not much to say, really. Life’s been beyond wonderful. As we close in on the holidays, however, I thought I should settle some rumours:

1. I am not dead.
2. I have not “formally” abandonded blogging.
3. I still love my music, and haven’t had my fill of talking about it.
4. I’m still very private about my life.
5. The “Hampton Roads Most Prolific Blogger” banner may be coming down soon, as I really don’t blog as I used to.
6. I’m happier now than I have been in my 38 years.
7. Roxette Bunny™ sends much bunny love.

Music of the Afternoon

Ye Olde iPod came up with one hit wonder, Patrick Swayze this afternoon, with his song from Dirty Dancing, “She’s Like The Wind.”

She’s like the wind through my tree
She rides the night next to me
She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She’s taken my heart
But she doesn’t know what she’s done

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is a young old man with only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she’ll stop the pain
Living without her
I’d go insane

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

Feel your breath on my face
Your body close to me
Can’t look in your eyes
You’re out of my league
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She’s like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
(She’s like the wind)
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She’s like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
She’s like the wind

(Just a fool…)
(She’s like the wind)
(She’s like the wind)
(Just a fool…)
(She’s like the wind)
(Just a fool…)

Here’s a shockwave movie for you.

Count your many reasons to be thankful.

I have so many reasons to be thankful this holiday seasons.

For CA, and unconditional love.
For family and friends.
For food and shelter.
For Roxette Bunny™
For the joy of every new day.
For music that warms my heart and can sometimes cause me to cry.


More reasons to come.

Something to think about.

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, ‘You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.’ A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one. Friends are very rare jewels, inde ed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share words of praise and they always want to open their hearts to us.’

Please forgive me if I have ever left a hole.

Did anyone get the license number?

Felt like I got hit with the flu truck. Am feeling better now, but still. When it hits, IT HITS!

Great news that CA obtained his special achievement. Tink’s challenge is on Monday.

Positive thoughts, people, please!!!!
