It's been a week of twists. Doors are opening and closing and that feels pretty good. You know what? I love doors. I love holding them open for people, but I also love closing them to work on a project.
Here's an aphorism I came up with this week:
"Hell is having options."
I know, it's an aphorism of the 'first world problems' variety. But there it is. I'm not sure if someone should be able to describe their own thought as an aphorism. It's pretty self-aggrandizing, isn't it? In any case, not having options is also hell. You know it's a good aphorism when it's negation also has the a ring of truth. Also, hell doesn't exist, so that's some good news right there.
I had an idea for a children's book about a dinosaur who is a detective. It turns out something similar exists. I'd go noir though.
This week's playlist is a typically swirled dose of genres. Nick Jonas is on here and I'll make no apologies for it. The song is an instant classic. Toots and The Meytals got in by way of a charming Uber driver from Camaroon. He convinced me that his country is worth a visit-- for the cooked fish sold on the street, for the parties, and hopefully for more folks as cool as he was. Did you know Camaroon has two official languages: French & English? So basically, it's Canada.
Getting to Africa may take a minute, but in the meantime we have some music to enjoy.
