Birthday Meme

Encouraged by chefx, I did the birthday meme:
Your Birthdate: May 6

• You tend to be a the rock in relationships - people depend on you.

• Thoughtful and caring, you often put others needs first.

•You aren't content to help those you know... you want to give to the world.

• An idealist, you strive for positive change and dream about how much better things could be.

Your strength: Your intuition

Your weakness: You put yourself last

Your power color: Rose

Your power symbol: Cloud

Your power month: June
I'm not sure about the rose, cloud, or June, but I know a lot of people who would agree with the rest. Interesting.

Song Shares

Inspired by the abstract writing on art that my partner has been doing, as well as her foray into sharing music mixes over the internet, I've decided to experiment with some writing of my own as a way of introducing songs that matter to me. Sometimes I'll compose something that reads like a review. Other times I'll get creative and use the song as the basis for flights of fancy. Let me know what you think of the music I share.

Clambering Onto the Bandwagon

The machine is large. The mass spills downward. There are too many parts. It will never get off the ground. But it's starting to roll, ignoring your lack of faith. You cover your eyes, peer out from between your fingers. And then the tires aren't touching anymore. Will it clear the powerlines? The engine sputters. The fuselage shakes. Yes! The left wing tip drops. It's coming back around. You can see the pilot. She opens the side window on the cockpit and extends her arm. A charge courses down your spine.
