The artists used to be all about their wares. The talent rose to the top as the music is what was being marketed.
Thankfully there are gems here and there in our present. I can't get this one out of my head at the moment and not one bit minds:
Most of my writing was accomplished during 2005 to 2009. It was a time when I could still find music that tugged the right strings upstairs and the words flowed. Those days are missed as good music has mostly been mined for my interests across all genre of most decades since the recorded note.
Speaking of notes, I still sing to the baby that is one month from her first cry. She likes music with violin the most. When there is an orchestrated tune with the higher pitches of violins or violas she gets jumpy. Excited is not even the word to describe our excitement. My plan is to skip the 'baby' things as much as possible. No annoying baby music and the least amount of baby toys as possible. I want this girl going straight for the good stuff.
The Yukester has been a trooper but the baby's size is finally putting stress on the host. Yuki has this maneuver where she goes and gets this wooden massage apparatus with two rollers and sets down next to me. She knows I am mind reading-like intuitive/attentive so she never gets a chance to use the thing before my magic hands dig in to repeal the burden of gestation.
We are about ready for the birth. Just a few more items to acquire but all of the majors are covered. Bought diapers for the first time in my life. Maybe it is the natural state of becoming a parent but the whole process has not been negative or scary. When we started trying it happened faster than we were anticipating. Other than the surprise of efficiency it has been smooth.
It also helps having family that just had a child with all of the tips you could imagine. That and studying Youtube for swaddling, diaper changes, bathing techniques, baby calming measures, etc..
Regarding possibilities, the title, we may move to Japan. I really want to. Not just because of the new found love of ramen. That or the Japanese culture being one of super coolness. I would fit in with the orderly and mannered society. Plus they have all of the motorcycles I have lusted over for years.
Although teaching English would most likely be expected of me I would gravitate towards an export business to share the sweetness of the forbidden fruits among my also denied brethren. It would be grand.
With my appetite for learning and inhalation of things unknown(to me), it would be a much needed mental exercising.
This concludes this evenings session.
