"So familiar and overwhelmingly warm,This one, this form I hold now.Embracing you, this reality here,This one, this form I hold now, soWide eyed and hopeful.Wide-eyed and hopefully wild."
Gonna throw another one of these out there because I'm bored and trying to be more active here.
The Tool concert back in May was fucking incredible. I really thought I'd have a hard time with all those people in such close quarters, but the second the music started... It was like all my anxiety was gone. I even managed to sing along. I thought I'd be too self-conscious, but between everyone else singing and the music being so loud, I figured no one would hear me anyway. There was a drunk guy standing next to me during the second half of the show and he stepped on me a couple times, but I didn't even care. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life -- right up there with the birth of my daughter and discovering PC gaming.
I've been ultra-creative lately. It's like a switch in my brain suddenly turned on and the gears started moving after years of gathering dust. I've done several smaller writing projects -- just personal things I've only shared with my best friend -- and they helped me get back in the swing of things. But now I've got something big brewing up there in my head. I'm excited. A coherent, interesting story has never come so easily before. I'm still somewhere in the planning stages, but I've got the basic premise and the characters figured out, so I've started writing the first chapter. It feels good to be doing this again.
