It’s March 6th In That New Year 2017


It was a dark and stormy night… night is usually dark… I remember this from Charlie Brown, a cartoon I never cared for, not the music, not anything about it. I watched it when it was turned on and waited for what came on after it thinking, “I don’t like Charlie Brown”. Did I need to get that off my chest? No. It’s early a.m. and as I stared into the dark, listening to no cars on the road it popped to mind. I’m so uninspired by the phrase I don’t want to elaborate on it, don’t want to challenge myself. There goes a truck – bet it was a semi. So much for Charlie Brown though one way or another it’s part of my childhood. Aaaargh!


Today we’ve got stormy/rainy with unseasonably warm; what’s unseasonable is hard to determine in the Midwest with the possibility of all four seasons happening in a 24-hour time frame. Warm winds could mean tornado – never did like those. Oohhh… I hear that wind outside. It’s the kind that’ll turn your umbrella inside out. I’ll bring my raincoat.


There’s a yawn. Do I want to close my eyes and let the alarm bring me back or do I want to get up and warm that espresso left in the 6-shot pot from yesterday? Decisions, decisions…
