My day has been spent on the couch, in the tub, and with the comfort of the last Dark Tower book by Stephen King. I sped to the finish with Roland, and cried my last tears over the companions that have I have traveled with for years. It was a sad, yet true ending. I feel enormously grateful to Stephen King. I felt like writing him a letter for the first time ever, and having it simply say "Thank you". I wonder how many writers ever simply receive thanks. I feel it is often needed and though the simplest message, perhaps the only one they actually want to hear. What he has done in more years than I have been alive is to produce a great opus, and one that has not only expanded my mind, but filled many long days with the exact mix of escapism and fantasy that I longed for. If this is to be the end Stephen, than let it be. Perhaps I have stolen too much of your energy already. When I picked up this last book, I cried and whined, feeling a portant of doom that he may never write another story after this one. But now, having read it?...I feel you King, I feel you....go if you want, it's been enough.
Having finished that, I read email...finding this gem....says enough on it's own for sure, but shook me slightly: "Here is your horoscope
for Saturday, October 9:
You're feeling an extremely strong pull to make some changes -- some very deep, very emotional changes. Don't fight it. Even if you have to let something go, remember -- nothing new can arrive if there's no room for it."
*sigh* and lastly, as I said, today has been drearily dark, for sure. But all of a sudden, a song popped into my head, and I began to sing it out loud to myself, and whilst singing, a beam of sunlight pierced the haze outside and made shivers run up my spine. funny enough, I taped it as well...queer isn't it?.....so here it is, for better or worse, forgive the off key moments, but this is a recording for prosperity. I swear I need to hear this song every morning for the rest of my life. If I could, every day would be like starting over, and looking for the tower all over again.
wait for the singing...heheh, just don't make fun...
