sunflowerinrain @ : The sound of droning
My didgeridoo has arrived!
It was so well packed, I was exhausted by the time it was free of its layers of wrapping. However, I fired up the browser and searched for lessons.
I've been a bit worried: I tried to play one before, without success; the only brass instruments I've ever got notes from are tenor horn and tuba. But, for a few seconds, the Drone was there!
Shattered now, going to rest. Lips numb, cheeks hurty, but I am chuffed. :)This entry was originally posted at http://sunflowerinrain.dreamwidth.org/544665.html. Please comment there using OpenID (yourLJname.livejournal.com) - log in here.

pfctdayelise @ : joy
I'm having that thing where I feel like joy is bursting out of my body such that it feels like my heart beats a little faster and I can't stop smiling. And I take the tram and walk down the street just smiling and smiling at how good life is.
I used to think I was a naturally gloomy kind of person.
I think I have had more moments like this in the last 12 months-2 years, than in the previous 28 years of my life in total.
My mind runs on a little loop and doesn't complete any thought, because it is trying to grasp every shining detail, to put into long-term storage.
It used to be because I thought such moments would be few and far between; now it's just because they're so nice.
I remember, I used to think I would be good at loving (someone) and I thought it such a truly dire waste that I might never know. In the lean years. I am happy I know now that I was right. It is a tender vindication as a whole, rounded person that goes hand in hand with the pleasure I get from using my body in triathlon.
I've posted this song

I think there is some truth in the thing about people in colder climates producing proportionally more great intellectual works. But my guess is people nearer the equator are not too concerned about it.
