Vorrei e non vorrei

Woke up to rain after a long semi-somnolent bout of inner debate about a ride I wanted/not wanted to take along the very route that M and I walked last evening.
But up the Cedar river to Flaming geyser park and on through Auburn to the Green river trail is a 60 mile jaunt.

So the rain washed away the guilt and I don't have to do that

Now that summer (sic) is over, the nice weather should kick in for a couple of months.

I may ride today anyway, just to work off the nervousness of the upcoming show.

But then again, see the Mozart quote above.

I think I'll probably try again and again to link to Magpie, but it still won't work.

I think I'll drink more coffee, but that won't work either.

I think I'll put coats of lacquer nos 3 and 4 on the ukulele. That might work.

I think I'll spend too much time fooling around in Duke land.
  • All about Duke land

  • But, one never knows, does one?

    Friend Bud Marsh and I took his
    Toyota Tundra yesterday and
    drove up past Chrystal Mt.
    on 410, bopped down 123
    on Cayuse pass, to 12 up White
    Pass, and then drove around
    on some forest service roads.
    It quit raining the moment we
    were nearer Eastern WA. We
    were hunting for good ridges
    and forests to do some
    Sasquatch hunting, but
    realistically were just enjoying
    the scenary at 4,000 feet,
    and did see 5 elk. We intersected
    410 gain on Chinook Pass,
    and cruised home to the rain
    and our spouses. Great day
    for two old retired farts.
    Cold chicken tastes very good
    in an aspen grove high up on
    a mountain plateau.
    Yes, your concert will be
    here soon, and those jangled
    nerves can settle down. How
    much time do your compositions
    get? David is playing music from
    his two other students too, right?
    Ironic for me that I watered my
    lawn well on Monday, not trusting
    the (sic) forecast. Melva's tomato
    plants have not created much
    fruit this summer, and she is
    bummed out about it; a real
    tomato lover, she eats them like
    apples. Wasn't that nice that
    Willow stopped by FFTR to
    assist you in linking up to
    Magpie? Hope it will happen
    at some point. Your poetry
    needs to be promulgated.
    I was in a hurry yesterday
    morning when I posted your
    Duke Nukem stuff, and the
    title got screwed up. I just
    wanted to use yours:
    AFTER, but the prompt came
    on with LONG BUSYNESS
    connected to it, some residue
    from an old post I assume.
    So you could relink to it
    if you want the proper title
    displayed. The new members
    of the Producer's Committee
    made their film choices for
    October; ANIMAL KINGDOM,
    Robert Altman's SHORT CUTS.
    I will do the write-ups and
    promo on it today. Need to
    slink off to Tacoma later this
    afternoon and see GET LOW
    with Robert Duvall, one of
    picks for September for the
    club. Then I need to write up
    the invitation to attend our
    screening of Fellini's 8 1/2
    for this Friday, Sept 3, which
    overlaps with your concert.
    Ain't life grand? I contacted
    one of the Honchos in the
    South Sound that oversees
    a lot of the Spoken Word
    Poetry events, but again
    the future ones conflict with
    my TFC events. Come on
    Universe, cut me a break.

    Willow has linked you up
    over on MAGPIE TALES.
    You are #111 on the poet's
    list; but it links back to
    only the comments page
    of he poetry posting.
    Still kind of confusing.

    Duke Land is a fine place to be.

    And I'm excited about Magpie Tales. It's time I checked out what all the fuss is about.

    Je parles qu'anglais et un peu de francais.

    See, what joy it is to have several
    magpies flocking around FFTL,
    in appreciation of your poem.
    After my first couple of poems,
    which had strong responses,
    my posting today of
    BUTTERFLY BLUES is getting
    nada responses, zip, back to
    my baseline. Oh well, we write
    because we have to, correct?
    Not because we crave the
    (sic) positive reinforcement
    of outside voices. That's my
    story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Hallo, Lane!
    The quote is not from Mozart, but from his librettist, Lorenzo da Ponte, a womanizing friar, who could well have been his own model for his Don Giovanni figure.
