Moansday

Not much good that can be said for today. A sickly grey sky that spat rain on and off all afternoon, my office like an icebox, etc. & etc.

"The Ammonite Violin (Murder Ballad No. 4)" is starting to look like a breach delivery. I managed only 331 words yesterday, and tossed them all out this morning. Then I tossed out the first 223 words from today. I stopped and read Angela Carter's "The Company of Wolves" and "The Snow Child," just trying to clear my mind and find focus, then went back to the iBook and did another 460+ words, 460 plus or minus a couple hundred because there was so much revising of what I'd written back on Friday and Saturday. I'm hoping I can finish it tomorrow or by Wednesday at the very latest.

You may have heard this already: in case not, I thought perhaps it might improve the icebox greyness.

My darling, what wonder have we wrought here?
It's weird and it's wonderful, dear
An ankle, an earlobe, an elbow bone
It's weird how it wonderful grows

And it was only me and you
That made this three come out of two

My darling, what wonder have we wrought here?
It's weird and it's wonderful, dear

A-tumblin' in Dublin and next thing you know
A weird and a wonderful show
All tendons and ribcage and beating heart
A weird and a wonderful start

And it was only me and you
That made this three come out of two

My darling, what wonder have we wrought here?
It's weird and it's wonderful, dear
It's weird but mostly wonderful, dear

Lo and behold, I had not heard that, so thank you very much.

You're very welcome. It seemed like the kind of day that could really use new music.

The new Decemberists has gotten me through the last couple of days, truthfully. :-)
