Simply irresistible


I’ve been up for about ninety minutes. The sun is shining. I feel good. I’m continuing to have nightly odd dreams. I watched Phantom of the Opera’s 25th anniversary performance on YouTube last night before I fell asleep. The set and costuming were fabulous but the voices will never compare, to me, to Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford.

Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness wakes and stirs imagination
Silently, the senses abandon their defenses
Helpless to resist the notes I write
For I compose the music of the night
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Hearing is believing, music is deceiving
Hard as lightening, soft as candlelight
Dare you trust the music of the night?
Close your eyes for your eyes will only tell the truth
And the truth isn't what you want to see
In the dark it is easy to pretend
That the truth is what it ought to be
Softly, deftly, music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly possess you
Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness which you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night
Close your eyes
Start a journey to a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before
Close your eyes and let music set you free
Only then can you belong to me
Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night
You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night


Mike is in the office working again. He spends more time working now ( with no sports going on and a 15% pay cut) than he did before. His Aunt Lu called earlier and said his Aunt Dot ( who had Alzheimer’s and was in a nursing home had died. She was crying and upset and hesitant to call and tell Mike’s mom ( her sister). Mike video called his mom and told her and she seemed okay with the news. The family has been expecting it. I think we’re going to go over and see his mother later. I’ve been outside some today but it’s nasty windy ( not just regular windy) so I’ve only been out puttering in the yard a bit. The yard is pretty soft and muddy from all the melted snow. I tracked mud globs in earlier by accident.

Garbage day

The garbage and recycling bins are down by the street. It’s a very glaringly bright, crisp day. I’m finishing my coffee. I’m then taking Bit...
