wins

This has been a long couple weeks for me as I have been supporting a friend who has been waiting on an offer from the perfect job. The interview went well, there was good vibes, even cool dreams about the job, but since the interview there was a lot of silence.

In the waiting so much can go on inside the head. I was wondering what was happening. I even had a dream where my friend had the job already! So, was it all in vain?

Nope.

goodbye 2016, hello 2017

The year is finally coming to a close. It’s been a good year but I wouldn’t have known it without doing a retrospective. I usually look back on what I did the last year and I did a lot of new things this year, like take an improv class. Cool things like see two bands I’ve wanted to see for years. Write and release a second poetry book. Take a screenwriting class.

This year has been a setup year for the future, for 2017. Tomorrow is the beginning for bigger and better, higher and greater, awesome and amazing.

get on your boots

I’ve been thinking about Adele. She broke an all-time sales record that is mind boggling: 3 million copies sold in a week!

Her voice really is amazing. I’ve never thought it to be unique or think that her songs were any good until I saw the video for “Hello” and a bunch of promo videos for other songs on her new album. Then her voice finally stood out to  me. Maybe it took this long for her voice to be something or the songs to be something that I would pay attention to.

This made me think of U2. Way back in 2009, on their album “No Line On The Horizon,” there’s a song called “Get On Your Boots,” and it talks about a time that is coming to pass now.

“Women of the future hold the big revelations”

Actually, the whole song talks about a time that would describe today pretty well.

I would like to describe how this is coming to pass, but I’ll keep it short: women are rising up. The future will have powerful women in it.

The future needs a big kiss
Winds blows with a twist
Never seen a moon like this
Can you see it too?

Night is falling everywhere
Rockets at the fun fair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But he won’t scare you

Hey, sexy boots
Get on your boots, yeah

You free me from the dark dream
Candy floss ice cream
All our kids are screaming
But the ghosts aren’t real

Here’s where we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

You don’t know how beautiful
You don’t know how beautiful you are
You don’t know, and you don’t get it, do you?
You don’t know how beautiful you are

That’s someone’s stuff they’re blowing up
We’re into growing up
Women of the future
Hold the big revelations

I got a submarine
You got gasoline
I don’t want to talk about wars between nations

Not right now

Hey sexy boots…
Get on your boots, yeah
Not right now
Bossy boots

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, now
God, I’m going down
I don’t wanna drown now
Meet me in the sound

dreaming the past

Last night I had a dream I was working at my old job and all my old coworkers were there. It made me happy to see all of them, yet I don’t know why I keep having this dream. There’s variations to the exact details of the dream, but the theme of going back to this old office is the same.

I really don’t know why I have this dream, but I’m not sure I like this dream anymore, even if I have a positive experience during the dream. I feel like I’m living in the past and not embracing my future. Well, my future is not clear and very uncertain, so perhaps that’s why I have this old dream, a place where everything was very certain and quite clear. If I can’t see my future in my waking life, then I want to dream of my future and let that dream become my reality.
