Where is my mind?

It’s warming up. The temperature is now approaching 70’s on some days. Still no snow, but no spring yet either. Just endless browns punctuated by the occasional brilliant sunset. This time of year always seems to take my energy, just the dullness of it all. The storms have started, the big, massive rain storms that wash away the road dirt and make sleeping late all the more inviting.

It is this time of year that I enjoy walking and exercising outside the most. This past weekend saw me on one of my favorite trails with one of most favorite playlists. A mainstream sound track from the 90s, nothing too genre specific, just good music to enjoy while walking. It seemed even more appropriate given my wardrobe of a hoodie and stocking cap. Funny how these songs bring back thoughts and feelings so vivid that it was if I was experiencing them for the first time. Music has such an amazing impact on me.

  1. My comment is awaiting moderation because I’ve changed my nickname, let me in please 😉

  2. Last summer, I saw Monster Magnet in the biggest european metal festival that takes place at 80 km from home. HellFest = 80 000 young satan addicts gathered in a small village. Now I can say that behind “Space Lord” you have to shout “Mother Fucker”.

    Please see the 2012 program : http://www.hellfest.fr/
    Catholic people around there complain about the bad influence of metal over youngsters…

    • Looks like fun! You know, I am going to age myself here, but I remember seeing Ozzy & Motley Crue in concert with Quiet Riot when I was young. The Crue has just released Shout at the Devil and the church people were all out in front of the concert hall handing out pamphlets and trying to explain how going in would risk our mortal souls. Nice to know they are all still at it 🙂

  3. I’ve been in hibernation mode, as it’s been so freakishly cold here. I woke up to snow this morning. It should be in the fifties here by this point in the season, but we’re still freezing, and there’s no sign of spring in the extended forecast.
    I used to LOVE some of those songs. I haven’t played them in ages, but now I’m tempted to go digging through old CDs. 🙂

    • I have been hibernating, but only to shake whatever cold seems to have ahold of me. It’s still warm here, no snow other than a tiny shower that was gone in a day. It’s awful. Everyone keeps getting colds or flu, it’s a really weird winter. It’s funny, these songs. I don’t listen to them often, but when I do, I wonder why I haven’t. Banana! 🙂

      • It’s getting colder here, like a winter rewind. I find this unacceptable, and am wondering where I may file a complaint. Banana!

      • Life is warming up..at last lol
        Spring is really starting to break through here now 🙂
        Nope, the vette is still parked, im waiting for the city to sweep the roads before I take it out…soon I hope.

  4. Bonjour Chloé,
    C’est amusant, tout est traduit en français ce matin… Je vais pouvoir lire les autres articles donc, sans me prendre la tête.
    Bonne journée,
    et gros bisous de yolaine 🙂

  5. Vraiment? Avez-vous trouvé moyen de traduire la page? J’utilise Google Chrome et l’add-on est un qui se traduira par une page entière, mais il est parfois mal et le rend plus confus que mon mauvais français. He he he. xoxoxo

    • Mais c’est très curieux !!! Je viens ici et la page est déjà traduite ! C’est la vérité mais une traduction très bizarre : d’ailleurs je fais un copier-coller –
      Mais c’est peut-être mon nouvel ordinateur qui me rend ce service… 😮

      Sinon, il y a des mots en majuscules, des lettres éparpillées ici et là, c’est le bazar quoi ! Mais tellement sympathique de pouvoir franchir l’Océan et d’être accueillie avec l’amorce d’une tentative de rapprochement des peuples !!! 😉
      Bonne journée Chloé ou bonne soirée, je ne sais plus quelle heure il est chez toi !

    • Euh pardon ! Je n’avais pas lu, (le message) j’ai mis la même chose, je pars sur la pointe des pieds….
