The Moods of Songs: Gravity

Music and it's Power Over Your Mood.

Everyone knows that music can have a power effect on someone's mood. You play hard fast music to work out to, and you play slower softer music to relax. You listen to sad songs and you listen to bright songs.

Quiet Desperation

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. 
What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. 
From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, 
and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. 
A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what 
are called the games and amusements of mankind. 
There is no play in them, for this comes after work. 
But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." 
      - Henry David Thoreau

Winter Returns and With it My Discontent.

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

The Search for Civilization Continues

I have been trying for two weeks now to have a good bowl of soup at lunch time. Not a great bowl of soup - I have not been going to 5 star restaurants - but the inability to get a good bowl of soup amazes me.

NaNoWriMo FTW!

So, NaNoWriMo went well. I managed to hold it together for the last week and in fact finished a couple days early. Well, I passed the 50,000 word mark early, I made some changes to the ending a few times right up to November 30th.

Where do I go from here.

As I am sure the one or two of you who read this blog with any regularity have noticed I have not posted in quite some time now. The single largest hurdle to writing for me has always been the idea. Once I have an idea I can generally write three or four blog posts but without that idea nothing else works.

Religion and Politics Part 5 - Politics - No Really.

I was planning on using this post to start tying together my philosophy and my political views into a cohesive thought. However the current political environment has so burned me out and frustrated me, I do not believe I could do justice to that original idea. Instead I will discuss some of what is going on now and what I think about it.
