Working away to glory

September 20, 2011 Leave a comment


My daughter and wife are sleeping peacefully. Me – I’ve work to do, so I’ve pulled up a chair next to the window. The leaves are still on the trees, but the breeze, though chilly, doesn’t carry their scent around much. Yes sir, it’s time for Winter.

My headphones are plugged in, and my favorite playlist is on. Jim Morrison is singing “Riders on the storm”.

I have to work on a project plan, and have opened the SharePoint site to check it out. As I wait for it to load, I glance outside. The streetlights have painted everything Orange. The streets are quiet, the silence broken only when a car passes by.

The project plan has loaded, and I must work now. But Jim Morrison is gone, and Iron Maiden has taken his place:

Restless sleep, the mind in turmoil

One nightmare ends, another fertile.

I can’t help but stop working and listen. It’s just impossible to be productive when you have good music around.

Don’t you agree?

When you’re talking to yourself,

And nobody’s home

You can fool yourself

You came in this world alone

You don’t talk so loud,

You don’t walk so proud, anymore…

Jim Morrison Speaketh

As I was walking back home in the evening today, “An American Prayer” started playing in my head… It’s a lovely piece, and my most favorite part of it is “A Feast of Friends/The Severed Garden”.

However, today, my mind chose to concentrate on “The End”

    This is the end
    My only friend, the end
    Of our elaborate plans, the end
    Of everything that stands, the end
    No safety or surprise, the end
    I’ll never look into your eyes

Was he a genius, or was he a GENIUS?
