hiatus? screw that...

Ok so I said I'll be on hiatus...but I decided to blog tonight. I was reading one of my favorite blogs, Daniel, the Guy in the Dessert, and was deeply moved and inspired by one of his posts.




Daniel wrote,

It almost rained today. To actually feel any raindrops would have required my presence in the heavenlies. My wings were out for dry cleaning(they were rumpled during a little angelplay), so I was grounded and had to miss it.

Not a drop touched the earth, but even the promise of rain on the mountains makes me happy.

I was listening to Aqualung - Strange and Beautiful from the Wicker Park soundtrack (which I bought on itunes and absolutely love!) at the time. I'm still listening to the soundtrack as I write this post...Death Cab for Cutie - A Movie Script Ending is now playing. Anyway, with my rambling set aside, Daniel's playful imagery is simply beautiful. I love his, somewhat, lugubrious tone and sarcastic innocence. His writing imbues humility and a genuine outpour of uninhibited thoughts and emotions. I often find myself more turned on by his eloquence than his streams of sexy "vintage" images. Of course, the eye candy is definitely an added bonus...but his writing alone captures my attention. Daniel's blog is definitely a great blog!

Moving off on a tangent, Pooh and I found out we'll be able to move in a day earlier. So we'll be moving in on the 14th! We've still got a lot of packing to do but it's mostly just sorting out all of our junk. Ugh, just a couple more days...I can't wait! I'll keep you guys posted. G'nite for now :)

I have been a somewhat long time reader and I just wanted to say I love reading your blog. Its just good. I really like when you talk about all your gadgets and toys since I'm really into that and also a lot of the stuff you have written on the men of color blog. I just think your a good storyteller and that always makes for good reading. If I ever do another personal blog I will try to make it at least half as interesting.

Keep it up!
