Thanks, BDR. Lots of upheaval in the local universe, so baby steps for the blog at this time.

"Upheaval"?? I hope that everything is okay! :)

Gosh you have great taste in music. I don't know a lot about the genre but, I've been listening to CBC radio a lot lately and they've introduced me to some amazing stuff as well.
I can't believe how much my taste in music has changed in the past couple of years!

I think that my favourite here was the first one... followed closely by the last. (I've been listening for the past couple of days...)

Technically, Laura, everything is not OK but thank you for the kind wishes. I hope that your situation resolves itself happily, also.

Physically, I'm as good as can be expected...the issues are in the personal sphere.
Anyway, there's not a lot of clamor for my blogging 'talents' - or opportunity in the immediate sense to fulfill same should a demand arise - but I intend to continue with Sunday Overnight for the time being.

wellness to you,

db~ I'm so sorry to hear that you are having personal issues.
I wish I had some words that would make you feel better or, somehow, help to resolve whatever those issues are.
Just know that my warmest thoughts are with you. We all have difficult situations in our lives from time to time. They can be scary and sad. Strangely, I know of some people that seem to thrive on drama. Not me. A nice boring life is A-Ok. ;p

As for your blog, I also understand how frustrating and perhaps disappointing it can be when there is little "clamor" for ones style. If you knew how much friggin energy I've wasted over the past couple of years trying to find my spot in the blogging world, you'd roll your eyes, ... for sure. :P
But anyhow, my point is that I love your blog. I love the music that you put on it and I like when you do a more traditional post as well. (even though I know dick all about politics as we all know.)

The world can be a cold place. Just know that somewhere is south central Ontario, you have a friend that cares and that is thinking of you.
If I lived close enough I'd SO bake you some goodies and bring them over. No problem is so big that my Chip'N Nut Brownies can't solve. ;p

Thank you again, Laura - The suspicion is that most of the clamor for what I attempt must come from within in order that motivation can occur.
I created my own niche in the blogosphere - whether I choose to continue or not, I have made whatever minor marks that are available and may have to be satisfied with that.

Many of my American friends - people with a much greater investment in the national political outcome than I - have taken up the torch in such matters quite handily, and this is no doubt as it should be.
When I first appeared with my untidy apparitions, there weren't many dabbling in the form (back in the times of fear, jingoist pride and enforced conformity not so long ago), and now there are quite a few more...which is what I had hoped for.

Shouting in a vacuum becomes quite tiring. And the cleaning never gets done.
