#bloganuary: The Stars At Night Are Big And Bright…

From Automattic headquarters in the City By The Bay, today’s prompt (and the last if Bloganuary 2022): How do you feel when you look at the stars?

Not a bad question. particularly when compared to yesterday’s…

I think about what I learned way back when, when I was told that all the stars had planets revolving around them, and I wonder if any of those planets are inhabited and, if so, by what? Of course, way back then we were taught that this is quite literally the only planet in the entire universe that’s inhabited. I’m not even sure that all the planets in this solar system are uninhabited, let alone planets in other solar systems in the universe.

Then I start to think that maybe the universe isn’t infinite, and there are more universes out there, possibly paralleling this one, possibly at different points in our existence. There might be a different universe with an earthlike place where exact duplicates of ourselves go about their daily lives much like we do. Maybe it’s an issue where we’re the same people with one major difference: a different race, different sex, different location, different intellectual ability, etc. Then I think that when we’re relocated after we die, there’s a guy standing next to a bunch of wheels of fortune, and we all get a chance to spin the wheels and that’s where we end up.

Then I think I’m crazy and go to bed.

It’s been real, it’s been fun, but it hasn’t been real fun. See you in the funny papers!

#Bloganuary: What I’m Listening To

From the home office in Columbus, Nebraska, tonight’s topic: What is on your music playlist right now?

There could be just about anything on my playlist at any given time, but right now, I’m listening to Starbuck, which was an Atlanta-based yacht rock group who had their one and only Top 10 hit, "Moonlight Feels Right," in 1976. It was the title song for their 1976 debut album.

  1. I Got To Know
  2. Drop A Little Rock
  3. Lash LaRue
  4. The Slower You Go (The Longer It Lasts)
  5. Moonlight Feels Right
  6. I’m Crazy
  7. So The Night Goes
  8. Working My Heart To The Bone
  9. Lucky Man
  10. Bordello Bordeaux

I do a lot of music playlists here on The Sound of One Hand Typing, specifically on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. I also do a daily "Song of the Day" which usually celebrates an artist’s birthday, except on Sunday, when it becomes part of Song Lyric Sunday. Eventually, Mary B’s Weekly Song Challenge will start up again, where she assigns us three types of songs (e.g "song with a woman’s name in the title," "a song with the color blue in the title." etc.) and we find songs to go along with it. So, if you like music, stop on by! Even if you don’t, stop on by, anyway!

#Bloganuary: All By Myself

Tonight’s Bloganuary prompt, from the circulation desk in Elko, Nevada: Where do you go when you need solitude?

When this old world starts getting me down, and people are juwst to much for me to face, I climb way up to the top of the stairs, and all my cares just drift right into space…

Carole and her ex-husband Gerry Goffin wrote it, so I used hers.

Seriously, I go to sleep.
