Well, as if by magic — I waved a wand, exorcised the demons at the stroke of midnight, and 2012 was suddenly a much, much better place than 2011.
Back to not working (at least much), feeling I’ve somehow alienated some people near and dear to me, realizing I’ve been wearing out my welcome with everyone. Anger, sadness, confusion, an overwhelming sense of darkness. Feels like 2011 all over again. And I can’t do this again.
Oh well … Here’s this week’s Five Songs, for better and worse. At least the sun always comes out in Fresno, even if the sky’s polluted:
I Need You — The Beatles
A Hazy Shade of Winter — Simon & Garfunkel
Paint It, Black — The Rolling Stones
I’ve Got to Dance to Keep From Crying — The Miracles
Failure — Swans
