Today I had some ideas as I awoke and thought to write them down, then thought I would make this writing be part of my occasional blog to be hosted on www.toodamnpersonal.com.
I awake these days with many ideas. I’ve been staying in a Florida campground on and off for over a month and because it’s still winter and I am still genetically prone to get chills. I usually tend to bed when the sun goes down about 5:30 and awake after the sun starts its warming about 7am. This is a long time to sleep and/or day dream, especially for someone my age who just recently has only been able to sleep no more than 4 hours at a time. I retire to the tent about sundown and often try to watch movies or something before I lay down to sleep.
My thoughts for today with what I woke up with are about writing a letter to figure out the licensing of Studio Ghilbi materials. I’m sure if American companies are any indication, that getting to talk to the right person at a Japanese company won’t be any easier. So wish me luck. I’d like to come up with a range of products starting with buttons and shirts, possibly leading into other things like jewelry and then depending on the agreement perhaps doing the whole line of Ghilbi.
This came to me this morning after watching Naussica of the Valley of the Wind (not one of the better known Ghibli titles) I decided I wanted to do a shirt like the dress she wears at the end, this led into wanting to do a button of the symbol on the dress, then onto other things Ghibli like the symbols in Castle in the Sky.
On a similar note, a couple of nights ago I watched “Whisper of the Heart” another Ghibli title which features a parody of the song “Country Roads” I knew previously by John Denver. I ]remember hating this song as a teenager when it was then popular. But now I am thinking seriously about adding it to my song list. Who knows? It does go together with “Piney Wood Hills” by Buffy St. Marie which is already on my song list. Did you know this about me before? Part of my game plan is to become the front man for some sort of a rock/country/gospel/bluegrass band. Well this is still part of the plan.
This blog is not what I intended. When I bought the domain “toodamnpersonal.com” it was meant to be about my transition from married life and was speculatively to be about sex, drugs and rock and roll. Then as it turns out, I left NY in September and before I left, all of my previous web properties were hacked and disabled “Toodamnpersonal.com” was one of the few domains I was able to easily rescue while on the road. So that is why this ongoing story lands here.
My plan is to put down my morning thoughts here, in much the same way as I did when I still had an apartment and permanent residence, But while before this was just writing practice, now this time it becomes a blog.
Before I continue, I’d like to include a word to the wise if in fact there are any wise people now reading this. This begs many questions.
However what I wanted to say is this, first: “Not everything is as it appears” and second “you should not ever feel that you are alone, because you are not”. There are always unseen forces at play and some of them might even be friends.
