In My Ears - Paul Weller

This is a long time coming...I am finally back on track. A lot has happened in the last few months and life is getting ready to change even more. Packing it up and selling the rest off - leaving Canada moving to Bermuda. So excited, yet so sad to be leaving my family and friends behind...but come on the world is small and proximity does not make or break friendships like it did when we were kids.

Change was once my biggest fear and now I embrace it. Always evolving is the only way to be...have to grow everyday, learn something new and be ready to take some chances. So this is where I find myself now, a whole new chapter...and yes I guarantee lots of randomness will ensue. xx

In My Ears – David Bowie

From my home office window I can only see the tops of the trees but they are all laden with fresh snow and it is so beautiful.  There is something so calming about waking up to the crisp clean white of new snow…everything is silent and peaceful…I am going to carry this feeling with me today.

Lots of Randomness

Blog 21
In My Ears – Robert Cray

There is not really one thing in particular but rather my mind is full of all sorts of random thoughts…here we go:
The Olympics: I’m over it; actually I never got on it.  I don’t get all the excitement?  Billions of dollars are spent on these games and for what…is it really going to help the world in anyway to know who the best “ice dancers” are?  Just wondering?  Maybe I missed something

Hot Vacations: You live in the cold north and have planned a trip to some where nice and hot…fantastic…but…its still –18 in Toronto so why in the hell are you wearing shorts and a tank top at the airport…give me a break, change on the plane or just wait until you get there…this just drives me nuts…so when leaving paradise will you be waiting at the gate in winter boots and a parka…no, these are the same idiots that arrive back in their summer clothes…just another thing that bothered me when traveling.

Mass Hysteria or Midlife Crisis: no need to really say much on this just wondering which one it is that we all seem to be dealing with right now?

This is all very negative…I am going to work on positive thoughts… who knows, by this afternoon I could be walking around in my summer clothes cheering on a curling team.

No place like home…

Blog 20
In My Ears – Sade

I am always so excited to go away…I turn into a kid counting down sleeps until departure…the funny thing is not too long after arriving at the chosen destination I start longing for home…I miss my family, I miss my friends, I miss my bed, I hate everything I have packed…none of this stops me from having a great time when I am away but it is always there in the back of my mind, a little ache in my heart. So my time comes to a close and I hop on a few planes and I am home again…I am not sure what it is I expect to find when I arrive home, but nothing changes…its home, it’s the constant in my life…I have been grounded again, surrounded by love…24 hours later my mind starts to wander…how soon is too soon to go away again?

Should it stay or should it go?

In My Ears - Maxwell

You would think that I have never travelled before…I have become incapable of packing…the second guessing of items has consumed my mind for the better part of 2 days…who are these people that go away for months and months with just one carry on bag (my aunt and uncle are doing it and I just can't get my head around it)…will I really wear 4 black cardigans…probably not, but what if I get there and I want one of them?  It could be warm during the day, but I know it will be cool at night, is rain forecasted?  So now I am packing for all possible weather situations.  How many pairs of shoes do I need…all right…how many do I want (all of them!)?  My carry on luggage has been purged of all books and magazines and is now full of shoes and extra clothes.  Oh shit, I have completely forgotten about all the toiletries…all my lotions and potions have to come…I haven’t even thought about my makeup bag yet…crap…hair dryer…where am I going to put all this.  I need to start from scratch…take everything out and with a critical eye remove the unnecessary…who am I kidding, I need all of it!!!  Anxiety is starting to set in…I am going to get pissed off soon…ok time to be rational…you have access to a washer and dryer so 3 pairs of jeans is a bit over the top…do I need 17 pairs of underwear…fine, 2 black cardigans in the suitcase and I will wear one on the plane…alright a book just made it back in the bag…screw it, I am getting the second suitcase out and I am going to pack even more clothes…ahhh feeling much better now…I wont have to worry about “what if I get there and need…” Now, how am I going to fit these bags into the car…I better call ahead and make sure they have the trunk cleared out to accommodate my luggage…remind me to never ever travel for any extended period of time as that might require me to ship trunks ahead of time.

TV Land

In My Ears - Peter, Bjorn and John

This is a little off track from what I was going to write about today but I am listening to PB & J “Young Folks” and I am always amazed at the whistling…I love it!!! Maybe its because I just can’t whistle a tune…I have always wanted to be able to whistle especially one of those really loud ear piercing ones…OK…enough of that…it has been a quiet few days and I have not been very inspired, but as I spent the better part of an hour last night flipping through the thousands of channels on my TV, I guess its safe to say I am not the only one who is uninspired…honestly, I couldn’t find something to watch and enjoy to save my soul from hell…what is all this crap…I don’t care that you weigh 450 lbs; that you have no fashion sense; that you are “little people” who rescue pit bulls…don’t get me wrong there is indeed some quality TV out there, but last night it was all eluding me…is there a special section of channels that I don’t know about that plays host to all the “good” shows…if there is please let me know!!!! Maybe I will forsake TV and really put an honest effort into the whistling thing.
