Keep on Rockin in the Free World (mp3)
The urgency is behind me. It doesn't mean there isn't still a lot of work to do, but I'm not feeling the urgent need to grab people by the neck, shake them, and scream, "Look what's happening to this country!"
I may feel differently tomorrow, but optimism creeps in when I hear of Yankee fans booing Cheney
, and of thoughtful reactions to Farenheit 911.
I've been stumbling around in the darkness, lost, banging into walls with very little direction since Craig died. Everyday I say to myself, "I just don't know what to do". The same goes for this weblog. I never wanted it to be strictly political but it was a matter of urgency. Now there are many voices out there and mine is repetitive. Repetition isn't necessarily bad and is in fact needed. I just don't want to do it anymore.
I have more stumbling to do and I'd like to play around with a new design and more original writing and other art. I'll be adding links to my del.icio.us
which show up on the left sidebar, and perhaps Andy will begin adding to this page again. If anyone else would like to help take up the slack let me know.
I've taken a stock blogger template and added a new blog to Craig's site
. I'm linking to things I would have sent to him. I've had many impulses to send 'this or that' his way and couldn't. Now I have a place to send them.
I'm keeping his site
and will add to it. I can't touch his old weblog
but it's there to stay.
I imagine I'll have this 'lost' feeling for quite a while, but I'm muddling through and I'm still rockin. On that note and as a tip of the hat to Michael Moore and Neil Young, here is a link of a cover Craig and fiddlerbob did of Rockin in the Free World mp3

8/24/02. Yep, just the two of them, with a huge sound.
