Memories of Youth . . . .

Today, I’m feeling sad, and I’m not having a very good day.

First, I woke up late because my alarm was turned down somehow, so instead of waking up at 5:30 am, it was 6:20am and I’m supposed to leave for work at 6:45am. So this left me with 25 minutes to get ready including a shower. Somehow I made it to work on time. This didn’t start my day off very well and I’m very tired, I didn’t sleep very well last night, who knows why, just didn’t. I’m even having a hard time collecting my thoughts, at time point, to write this.
Second, now I’m sitting here at work and I have nothing to do but think about how boring the day will be. I’m not looking forward to this because my mind keeps falling to Andrew McMahon. He is going into the hospital today for a preparation for a Bone Marrow Transplant. He will have the surgery in the end of August; I can’t help worrying about him. I have so many negative experiences with this disease, he, however, is being amazingly positive about this.

In his blog yesterday, he was focusing on the album being released and how that chapter of his life is finally coming to an end. He is looking forward to the response of this collection of music. He was talking about how the world spins and continually turns and comes back to itself leaving us wondering how we got to where we are.
“It's amazing to watch how this world is constantly moving in circles. Giving and taking and giving back again. That’s what ‘everything in transit’ is about, the constant motion of this world. In a lot of ways these past few months have reminded me of that motion.”
He really is an inspiration to all those, including me, who have the blessing of having him share this part of himself. I truly have not been affected by a singer/songwriter before. I mean music has always been very important to me but his words and the way his melodies work just change me.
