Easy Listening

The CD player in the stuio is broken. No problem, someone connected up a portable cd player to the sounds system and there you go! Now that CD player is broken. So now, whenever I go in, I’m setting my station to the local NPR, OPB.

The result is that I am a lot better informed about random topics, while I work. Since I’m always thinking about something (can’t stop the brain!) I figure this is much better than getting stuck obsessing about past battles, frustrations, and times when I was so embarrassed I just wanted everything else to vanish and go away. I also tend to get a lot more done.

I still think though. I’ve been thinking about my tendency to live in past and in fantasy. While I don’t want to loose my fantasy world, living in the past just isn’t healthy. Living in my fantasy world all the time isn’t healthy either. I probably need to do more to get that out on paper, so that it has somewhere to go instead of just swirling around in my head and eating me alive every fall when the SADs comes around.

Still, when I put my pots away for the day I know more about what is going on in the world, I know more about migrains, Iraq or the after effects of the American Civil War.
