I didn't live up to my self-designated theme song for 2019, "Wig in a Box" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, but I initially tried. Releasing VISION BENT (half-blind poems) was the best way that I've found to be the best you've ever seen. Then being interviewed by a fellow blogger was like tasting a hint of fame or, at least, notoriety. ( To experience my 15 minutes...http://www.mygayopinion.com/3178/john-l-harmons-vision-bent/ )
I faltered through the remainder of the year. I could blame life, but I throw the responsibility onto my own shoulders. I allowed a negative perception of myself and my surroundings to eat away at me and what I accomplished early on this year. It was a deep rabbit hole that I'm still crawling out of.
Guess that's why I feel "The Jig is Up" by Jill Sobule is the song that ultimately sums up my year. Especially the lyric...Maybe I'm just in a bad mood and I need to change my attitude. The final lyric also speaks to me...The story needs another twist and I have had enough of this. Hopefully any twists in 2020 will be positive or at least I will hopefully be able to find the elusive silver lining.
I'm not going to make a ginormous, insurmountable New Year's resolution for 2020. I just want to go for more walks, listen to more e-books and focus more on writing, with concentrated effort on this blog and A STUDY IN ORANGE.
Thank you for reading or listening to my half-blind words.
I will see you next year...so to speak.
