While we are in the hurry-up-and-wait mode to close our house, I cannot wait until my shipped guitar gets here. I was planning on getting another acoustic-electric with which to gig with and I can just use my Ovation for practice.
So I will go check out what Guitar Center has on hand and see if I can pick something up as I plan on hitting a local open mike next month when I have practiced a bit.
The USPS is suffering the same effects as ANY business under the restrictions of the pandemic. No help, overworked employees, extra mail traffic, it all adds up. Except the products they handle just don’t affect a table of four in a diner; they slow the whole machine down.
“And when the machine breaks down, we break down.” Tom Berenger’s tour-de-force as Sgt. Barnes in Platoon and my vote as Oliver Stone’s best movie.
I have blogged before about the inefficiency and overpriced machinations of the United States Postal Service.
I say bring back the Pony Express.
Cheaper, FASTER, and (I have no doubts about this), far more reliable. Not to mention the environmental impact such a move would produce.
Until I ameliorate my guitar situation, I will be posting another recitation of my main man William Shakespeare.
This will be a little lighter fare than my last from Julius Caesar.
I will speak Duke Orsino’s opening lines from the play Twelfth Night (Or What You Will). He is pondering the concept of love and he believes if he is totally inundated with an excess of it, then he will get it out of his system, if you will.
My favorite character hands down, is Sir Toby Belch.
Full of life, infantile, and beery.
Like me (except beery no more).
So check this out and let me know your thoughts on love.
I’d really like to hear what you think.
One of the next things I have to take care of is to get my medical marijuana card. Sounds like a blog waiting to happen.
Getting back to the subject of unrequited love, it is my not-so-humble opinion that this whole world is tough enough to navigate to THE END by yourself. Yeah, it definitely helps if you have a strong support system with family and friends, but I believe everyone needs to find that ONE and ONLY soulmate that God created for them.
Easy for me to say; The man (or woman) upstairs allowed me to find Karen.
So I wish you all the emotions that Duke Orsino has for the object of his desire (Viola/Olivia), and I wish you an excess of love, no matter where or with whom you find it.
