DEEP THINKING ABOUT

Recommended Posts

In my case, looking back on it, I believe that for me as an individual going to 3 different schools in 3 different provinces in grade 6, and again repeating the same process of going to 3 different schools in 3 different provinces in grade 9 might be the 1 of 2 things which left me a little shy around people outside of work in my private life and perhaps led me into collecting music. Maybe the perceived stress of that which I harboured as a child is the thing which led me to embrace music as a form of escapism?

Also my family is a mixed family of French and English. My French side is the typical laid back do what you want side, and don’t worry about anything. The English side, in particular my grandparents, were the opposite of the French side. I remember being berated for not dressing right, or looking right and being told I need to improve my physical appearance as I was getting tubby for 1 year during puberty in their eyes as a young a 13 year old. Perhaps that is why I chose a line of work that includes wearing a suit every day with a bloody tie? Maybe that’s why now I place such emphasis on being healthy now as an adult?

I think at the end of the day, we are all looking for something. There was a line in Doctor Who a few weeks ago that I heard while watching it with my son that stuck with me for whatever reason; The Doctor says something along the lines of, ‘kids who have been damaged in some way are more aware of things going on around them and hear stuff that most people don’t’. Perhaps those 2 events were the things that attracted me to music? The idea that music is happy, and that I can hear happy/love and things can be good, and there is something else to make life a positive thing? Maybe that is what led to me collecting music? Well enough of this shit, I have meetings to go to in 40 minutes.

Cheers

Charles, you might be a little shy, but you certainly don't possess a low I.Q. -- far from it. You also possess a tremendous amount of self-awareness and have a good heart. You're an excellent writer too.

Pagefan55,

When you spend a number of years basically driving by yourself on the Trans-Canada highway between Toronto and Halifax, going east and west, and also spend as much time on the i95 from Halifax to Boston going north south, that means a lot of time being alone in a car or in hotel rooms, so it gives you plenty of time to evaluate what you have done right or wrong in your life and it gives you time to become self-aware otherwise you end up falling asleep out of boredom at the wheel and in a ditch – luckily, I have yet to put a car in the ditch. By the way, besides music, when on long drives, audio books are great to have as well.

Try and find things that she loves to do and maybe do stuff for her that she might have to do in her day to day life, allows her to free up more time, just an idea. It might make coping with the stress of a dad with cancer easier because she will have more strength to focus on the good times. Also be extra positive, even if you don't feel it on the inside, it might make her feel like she can get through it.

I`ve been looking up on the neo-progressive rock band Marillion, which to tell the truth I`ve been into them from the start `80`s there name comes from the book by J.R.R Tolkin Silmarillion. the one fact that I`d forgotten was around the time the bands second album was in the final stages of production the name of it, the title which went on the cover was FUGAZI, the singer found the word in the book NAM by Mark Baker but the two other potential names where CHILDREN`S HOUR or my personnel fav AFTERTHOUGHTS GLOW AFTERWARDS the later one wasn't picked because of the closeness to the GENESIS song AFTERGLOW, the band where getting the Genesis tag a lot back than as FISH wore face make-up and told stories with acting. there was also the BANKS/HACKETT keyboards/guitar sound, but that was it. the new singer is doing a fab job, but is the Fish era for me... bowing the hands of friendship sometimes isn't the greatest piece of a good first to choice as I`ve now it can turned a round and bitten me the biggest ever, why I`m saying this is the lose of personnel items stolen from my home manly music items... will there be a time within the space, colourful, monumental musical masterful music within the cosmic lifelines of time from ones I`d start this musical flight of wonderous musicianship I`d never felt more lost whenever I`ve not played any music at all...

I walked in the house maybe 20 minutes ago, picked up for my son his skis "training" skis he just needs, what an expensive sport this. Daughter wanted me to buy her new clothes, and of course the Mrs wanted a few odds and ends. It really is wonderful seeing the smile on there face when you can give them what they want. From 10 AM until 1:50 shopping. The best part is, I bought myself nothing but a bottle of water. It feels sort of neat just seeing how excited they get when its all about them.

PURFUME RIVER

ALL LOVED UP

THE LEAVING
