Better



What this means to me is more than I know you believe...

Sometimes an album comes along and it's perfect at the time you listen to it, but just can't figure out why. Then, a year or so later, you go back and listen to said album (in today's case, repeatedly for the past 16 hours) and get an even greater charge because you now know exactly why it clicked so inexplicably hard the first time around.

But there was a time...

As with most music, the reasons for liking it are highly personal, so grabbing every individual you know or have known by the shoulders and shaking them while you tell them precisely why you're full of energy and what you revelation is makes you look like a lunatic. (Besides, the list can read more like a rap sheet and a recriminating perp list, at times.)


If there's nothing I can gain from this, or anything at all...

I've come through something with cuts and bruises, but as far a perosnal accomplishments and experiences go, I can't re-write the history of the end or the means used to get there, but I can certainly make my own story going forward.

And that's the truth, and here's the worst yet...

So for now, I'll just sit here, grinning at my own victories and the songs I played for them years before I realized I won.
