My earworm du jour …
While it was at first the melody that caught my attention and made me shimmer a little on the inside, when I finally got around to reading the lyrics I realized all of a sudden that this has pretty much been an anthem for the past few weeks.
On the whole I don’t like to talk about myself (be it online or offline), and I tend to keep my life pretty much self-contained, but what’s come my way this fall and winter is disheartening. If I could say what I wanted to in this place, it would probably be sharing far too much as it has little to zero relevance here, and would probably stand little chance of falling in helpful hands.
And that brings me to the crux of the matter (pardon the pun): the relative calm of going forward in spite of this. Some of the things I’ve been through over the past decade are statistically things that most people don’t typically begin to see until their late 40s and 50s. It’s frustrating to have to run silent and deep on matters and not really have many I can connect with, but it’s also because there are so few my age who’ve experienced anything similar.
So here’s to Sentinel and here’s to better days ahead.
I’m not making anyone any promises that this is the start of some grand online project or anything, but I’ve felt for some time that given I have my own domain, and given I have YT and other media channels and resources, it would be nice to start something as an outlet and get back into being more creative, because even when the world’s at its worst, it’s possible to keep on moving as long as there’s something fun to do.
