Distant Procession

Posted by Alienfloyd

I'm obscured by my thoughts, constantly lost in a stare. The conversation isn't good, this is serious. I cannot proceed. Not now...men in black, faceless apparitions line the halls of my mind. Wisping dangerously through the tarnished thoughts. A glint of hope, a trigger of salvation, a break in the normalcy of degradation.

Approximately 9 years ago I was recording a show at 1:30 am on KRCL on tape. I listened to it the next day and discovered a new band that changed my musical interests for awhile. For better or worse the band was Covenant and the song was Dead Stars. It was instantly appealing and somewhat like a harder DM. I went to Graywhale yesterday and picked up Northern Light by Covenant. I listened to it from start to finish and loved every minute of it. So...

Moab and the 1/2

Posted by Alienfloyd






I ran the Canyonlands Half Marathon for the 3rd time and one 5 miler. Best time yet. This was followed by an amazing hike to Landscape and Double O Arches.

MORE!

Posted by Alienfloyd

More! I want More! Listening to the Sisters of Mercy and really enjoying it. After American Midol I need to wash the bad taste from my brain. Even the really good performances aren't that good. I guess I always hope for More! Great Sister's song"More". Most people probably would be appalled by it, so not sure why I love these guys so much.

I'm so tired, I think the sinus drugs are kicking in....

Insulated and Warm

Posted by Alienfloyd

The quiet hollow cold dry feeling of February came back today. This was the month I left NC and came to the bleak dead land of SLC. A few weeks later I was tearing out hotel rooms wondering what the hell I was doing here. I had that feeling again, triggered by a song from the first CD I bought. Come undone by Duran Duran. I see the beauty of Utah now but it took awhile to appreciate it. 15 years later where do I find myself? A much different person? In many ways yes, but at the core the same. I just need a dehydrator now. I need to make some beef jerky. I need to get on a bike again. See my eyes again..dream alive again. Be ...

It would be so nice.

Posted by Alienfloyd

Note the trees because... they may be gone sooner than later

Feel the breeze...it may grow stale
Listen to the quiet... it may ring in your ears
Forget the past...the future is bright
Is it just a passing phase
My heart is a blaze
My arms to weak to raise
Dreams in foggy bliss.
With this last kiss
I miss.

Law of unintended consequences.

Posted by Alienfloyd

I have thought a lot about death and choices this week. I've thought about conspiracy theories and federal auditors. Do people still have their heads buried in the sand unaware of what is going on around them?

First of all my heart goes out to my sister and brother-in-law and the loss of a brother this week. I can only imagine how hard it is and how devastating. I am impressed with how strong they are and I' m impressed with the choice to be an organ donor that I assume was made prior.

We had the government regulators show up at our doorstep on Monday at work. It always causes stress and makes everyone on edge. Fortunately it went well.

I firmly believe there are very real powers that our attempting to destroy America and take away or freedom. I recently read the Alliance form Gerald Lund. This book takes on the topic of forced compliance to fit a set of societal rules. The loss of freedom ...are we ready to give it all up so the government can do whats best for us. I 'm not really ready for that.

We see that terrorists are still out there..so conspiracy experts? Was 9/11 really a government conspiracy...please they can't get cash for clunkers right , how the heck can they organize 9/11.
Incompetence is rampant.

When a young life is stopped everything that could have been, never happens, that is the real tragedy. The choices made can have far reaching effects. There are things in my life that I wish never happened, the consequences I will probably never fully realize.

Cherish life , cherish your relationships, forgive freely and often and never hold grudges.

Peace.

The siren sweetly singing

Posted by Alienfloyd

I have many things to be grateful for , my mustache, my calfskin wallet with no money, black socks and the surprise flash of freezing water on the faces of us all at work. Thank you..you know who you are. I found lots of good music this weekend, none of which I will share right now. I learned I still love the UFC and want Spike back. Gerald Lund is a good author but a bit formulaic. I ran for the first time in a month and I feel sore and hungry. I will read the Old Testament again this year, that actually excites me. I want to see "On the Waterfront " again. I want to bathe in the River Styx while singing Come Sail Away and Tales of Ulysses. I want to be an American and kick out all the commies. I wan to camp in below freezing weather because I can.

I want a salty pretzel.
I want to be respected by my children not feared. I want a cold Vanilla cream soda. I want to find the peace of mind that comes with knowing who I am and wear I am going. I want to stare down the Sun and win. I want to put my thought to paper and see the events unfold.
I want.
