#WDIIA 3/29/20

Let’s keep in touch.

I know it is Sunday.  A typical Sunday.  To me, Sunday has been always been a day of rest.  For a time in my life, I was not well. Mentally.  Those that know me in the physical world may scoff when I say this but I am all better now.  Better in the sense that I can deal with my … hmmm.  My … what shall we call it?  My quirks.   I understand what makes me tick.

For a time in my life, I refused to do anything on Sundays besides attend Mass.  When someone suggested getting together over the weekend, if they suggested Sunday, I’d counter with how about Saturday instead?

Why?

Well because I was anxiety ridden and gearing up for work on Mondays was work … psychological work.   Somehow wallowing made it all better.  Mondays were NEVER the beast I made them out to be and I’d power through the work week until collapsing on Friday.  My favorite day of the week has always been Friday!

I wonder what I was ever so worried about?  And I know I will never be that way again.  And I learned that about myself pre-COVID.  In the last few years leading up to this, the myth of Sunday changed for me.  I did not have to hide at home.

Post-COVID?  My hypothesis is I will likely keep time in a completely different way.  Maybe we all will?  My favorite day of the week will no longer be Friday.  My favorite day of the week will be all of them.

As always, more to come.

#SLS for 3/29/20

Jim prompts us to find a song using touch or feel. Considering all the social distancing going on these days, there’s not as much of that going on. Fortunately there was no shortage of possible song choices though. Very hard to choose. Very fitting to our current state of affairs. I’ve got analysis paralysis.

Okay let’s get going. Touch or feel. Hmmm.

Let’s go with “Touch of Grey” by the Grateful Dead. I get I used a different touch as in little bit of grey versus tactile touch. But the song has a peppy beat. The message of getting by and surviving is helpful too. More details about the song at the wiki

Songwriters: Jerry Garcia (music) and Robert Hunter (lyrics)

It must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint by numbers morning sky
Looks so phony

Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains, I don’t care
‘Cause it’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

I see you got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I got the gist of it
But it’s alright

Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining’s got a
Touch of grey

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

It’s a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the C’s
The ABC’s
We all must face
And try to keep a little grace

It’s a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABC’s
We all think of
And try to keep a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It’s even worse than it appears
But it’s alright

Cows are giving kerosene
The kid can’t read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene
But it’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits
There’s really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and spit
‘Cause it’s alright

Oh well a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say
It’s alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive
