Tonight seems slower than usual. Unusually fast paced before now it eases on ahead at a snail's pace. The minutes may move forward but my head stands still.

I'm sorry. That all sounds so very cryptic. My head is in a million places. I am thinking of my friend and of the world around us and as cheesy as that sounds that's exactly what I am thinking. The walls of our apartment disappear and I sit wide open trying to organize each falling thought in some hindu zen whatever kind of order. I am finally realizing something important. Maybe I just ate too much and am getting sleepy. Atticus and mom and Gabrielle are out visiting. I am home alone.

Health update: they found a cyst on the right lobe of my brian measuring about 6 cm by 3 cm by 2 cm, The neurologist assures me that it is normal, I may have even been born with it. That leaves only the cardiologist's results, though the neurologist did order another MRI just to make sure.

Miss Megan Douglas has sent in her playlist. A nice fat one too, props to her for including a song off of Lagaan. What a wonderful surprise. Have any of you all seen it? Irene showed it tp Gabrielle a few years ago and it is gabrielle's favorite Indian movie.

I wonder if you all have heard Aaj Mausam Bada Beimann Hai from the Monsoon Wedding soundtrack. Very old track. My dad translates it to "The weather is unfaithful, not favorable. But if someone does something and is unlucky they can use it as a phrase, like The Weather is unfavorable." It's by Mohammed Rafi. It's the song that I had in my head when I imagined Atticus before he was born. That along with this song from the eighties Indian movie Hero with Jackie Shroff are my favorite Indian songs.

Anyway, here are Megan's words:
