I’m always surprised to learn where you Deadsplinterers are. Some I know because you mention the place, or because of the time zone you’re posting from or from the way you spell “colour”. I tend to forget that we’re scattered hither and yon around the globe.
Tonight, I want you to describe – in song – your place in the world. It can be geographical, or psychological or social. Or tell me it’s none of my beeswax. I don’t care, I still love you. I just like to picture a place, and environment, or surroundings when I read your funny, fascinating, and sometimes heartbreaking posts.
Me, I need this bad because I had an awful day today. I was driving back from town, coming up Route 100 where it winds through the hills and a young, almost grown deer leaped from the woods in front of me. I hit it before I could even react. It took a few steps into the woods before I lost sight of it, but I doubt it could have survived. It tore my car up pretty good. I’m really kind of shook about the whole thing. My neighbor says this is a common occurrence when you live in the country, but it was still traumatic for me, and a lot more traumatic for the deer. So by sharing a little bit of yourself you’ll be helping me out. The music you choose and by extension the bits you share about yourselves, are like tonic to me.
I actually live here.
And there’s always a doo-wop.
Anyway, thank you guys for being here at Deadsplinter and DUAN. I’m sorry if I’m a little off my game tonight.
