Some Good Music...

I've just gotten back into my office from a short celebration downstairs in Hospital Atrium. See, tomorrow is a legal holiday, so Hospital will be on Holiday Routine. Just the duty crew in. And for this the celebrations got scheduled today.

Mostly... mostly I'm reserving what I've got to say for tomorrow, because it is a very significant day for me, to me. It carries that significance in big part because of some things one of the speakers said today, about defining moments in life. Which may be that brief instant, a moment, or may stretch across a longer span of time, possibly years. In either event, what happens then does indeed define a future self, whether we realise it or not.

Perhaps it brings this kind of a check-list for evaluating how a day is going:
Woke up? Yes (check)
Roof over my head? Yes (check)
Food? Yes (check)
Anyone shooting at me? No (check)
Anyone wake me up last night shooting at me? No (check)
Needed to patch anyone up recently while someone was shooting at me? No (check)
Most of my body parts still attached? Yes (check)

Life is good.

As I've answered the question before, there are only two melodies which always make me cry. Neither of them did the band play today; tomorrow, I'm sure, both will be played many places around the world.

They did provide a good cover on 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' and 'In the Mood'.

My 5th grade teacher was an older fellow who used to joke that every morning he would read the obituary section of the paper and if he wasn't listed there he would then proceed to work.
