January is an ass kicker

This January has been the worst January in the 40 or so Januaries that I've been a part of. It's not like anything bad has happened to me personally. But as far as the blog is concerned, a little voice has stopped me from posting.

"Don't post that, it's stupid", it would say, and so I'd refrain, and I don't know, it seems like everything is kind of permeated by that voice, that attitude, for me right now. I'm waiting for some sunshine. In the meantime, I still have to pay the rent.

So I don't know if this is stupid or not, but I have a friend in the music business and he sends me music. Here's what I've been listening to today: NADA SURF - the weight is a gift
Thanks, Michael.

It appears to me, Fowler, that you have a case of the winter blahs. It's okay, we are all feeling a bit weary. I read in the KC Star yesterday that January 24 is the most depressing day of the year. Just look forward to June 24... it's deemed the happiest day of all!

As far as wondering if you sound "stupid", you don't. You continue to be one of the most "clever" men I know. I have compared my own "cleverness" with yours many times, and felt I came up short. I like to read your antidotes, ideas and an interesting dream now and then. You share your interests and perspective, which is unique unto you, yet somehow resembles the world I live in.

Take a sock in the arm from me, F. and keep your chin up!
