As you know, things are a bit upside down for me right now. I don’t even feel like writing (which scares the crap out of me), but I finished the first season of Glee so obviously the only thing left to do is blog.
I don’t want to talk about what has sent me reeling. But your thoughts and prayers and emails and DMs and comments and texts and interpretive dances and smoking signals have made a huge difference. They’ve made me cry and laugh and breathe. Thank you thank you thank you.
Every time I go on Twitter and want to scream SHUT THE EFF UP ABOUT YOUR PETTY STUPID WHO CARES STUFF, I read a kind DM and remember that beneath all the PETTY STUPID WHO CARES STUFF, people have beating hearts and do care. And without blogging and social media, I wouldn’t know most of the people who have been where I am standing.
So don’t think that I’m leaving even though it’s hard to be here for some reason. I apologize if my writing sucks today.
Many of you have asked how you can help beyond thinking and/or praying for us. Well…
I’m in a melancholy place, and I’ve needed to listen to music. And sing. (My poor, poor family. Like they aren’t going through enough.)
So far, my songs have been Army by Ben Folds Five because it’s awesome and Touch Me by The Doors, which is totally inappropriate for my situation, but it came on the radio and stuck.
In fact, both choices are weird although you should hear me BAPBAAAAHHHH-ing along with the live version of Army. It’s pretty fantastic. (Click here if you can’t see the video. Next time, we get together we can Bahbah!)
Now that you know they can be as weird as possible, I would love to hear what you listen to when you hurt in that grieving, melancholy, screw this way.
So I ask: What music do you listen to when you’re down?
