Hey guys. Hey. :) I'm into greetings these days. I'm not too sure why. Just humor me.

Lately I've been pondering lots of things, as is my way. Tonight I'm sitting down to try to write down some of the random ideas here, and figure out which ideas you, my beloved readers, would like to see in complete(r) thoughts in a full post. goes.

1) Pain. Why is it here? (mmm...this could be a good one)
2) Why songs have power.
3) An update on the rote, everyday aspects of my life.
4) A song to share.
5) A poem, original or great.
6) Thoughts on why loving people is so hard. And why accepting love is so hard.
7) A recycled writing (i.e., a writing assignment from school)
8) Why questions and why we should ask them.

I have a feeling that's enough to keep you guys busy for a while. :) On another note, if you read my last post on Save Blue Like happened. 10 days and the funding is complete. It should hopefully come out next year. I'm looking forward to seeing it, and I'm working on tempering my expectations and detaching the book from an extremely different screenplay/film.

Hope you all are well! Let me know what you think I should write about.


  1. I think you should write about whatever you want to.
    also, i find this amusing :
    5) A poem, original or great….
    as if an original poem can't be great, or a great poem can't be original… :)

  2. Ha. Thanks for the help deciding what I want to write about, Jami. :) original poems are never great. But that is funny. I'm funnier when I don't try to be. Funny how that works.

  3. My answer is....

    yes. But if a poem, a little bit about your mindset when you wrote it.

  4. Hey, Peter! I'm commenting because, concomitant with the last day of the Save Blue Like Jazz campaign, I did a giveaway on my blog Random Musings & Ruminations. The prize was my autographed copy of Don's book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Because you were the 4000th donor, you won. Just need an address to get the book to you.

  5. hey! you WON! awesome :)

    and you haven't posted in a LONgish time...

  6. Hey. Hey, brother. I guess I'm into greetings. Hey.

    I'm not bothering to see what the voting results above are: any post would be good.

    :) That is all.
