Wednesday June 18th.

A complicated day is today. This day has been fraught with technical difficulties. I downloaded the new Firefox 3 yesterday evening and the new version does not recognize the program that I use to access YouTube Videos. So my plan for a quick post today has been hampered with trying to regain that ability. Well success has come with a 2-hour price tag. Jeez, it is just one more thing!

I am attending the Indigo Girls concert this evening at the Rialto. I saw them last year and it was an excellent concert, so even though another year has passed I could not pass up an opportunity listen to their music. The beautiful part was that it was just the girls and their guitars. There was so much music out of just 2 guitars. The complexity of their sound is so amazing. I have always found great meaning in many of the lyrics and I have always admired the gals for keeping to their own sound!

Well, I HAVE to get back to work today so I can justify this evening off!
Here is the song that they closed last years concert with.
So bittersweet in so many ways!

Galileo's head was on the block
The crime was looking up for truth
And as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
I try to trace them to my youth

And then you had to bring up reincarnation
Over a couple of beers the other night
And now I'm serving time for mistakes
Made by another in another lifetime

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

And then I think about my fear of motion
Which I never could explain
Some other fool across the ocean years ago
Must have crashed his little airplane

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo
King of night vision, king of insight

I'm not making a joke, you know me
I take everything so seriously
If we wait for the time till all souls get it right
Then at least I know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
In my lifetime I'm still not right

I offer thanks to those before me
That's all Ive got to say
cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
Now I have to pay
But then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
To let the next life off the hook
But shell say look what I had to overcome from my last life
I think I'll write a book

How long till my soul gets it right
Can any human being ever reach the highest light
Except for Galileo God rest his soul
King of night vision, king of insight

How long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
How long
(till my soul gets it right)
[til we reach the highest light]
How long
