Day Eight

A song to go with my mood? That's a tricky one. I don't have a favorite song (really, there's just too much music out in the world for that). I suppose right now it's Also Sprach Zarathustra, which isn't a song, but it was part of the Utah Symphony concert last night. It's a tone poem by Richard Strauss. The opening theme was used in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, which doesn't fit my mood right now, but the music does.

The big, booming tympani matches how I feel. I just bagged up a bunch of stuff left in a room for weeks on end; it was driving us nuts. We'll see how things go over when it's delivered to the owner. Needless to say, she has been warned in the past that this will happen. I did get 25 cents for my efforts. If you leave money on the floor in my house and I pick it up, it becomes mine. What a wicked stepmother I am.

There, the tympani are booming again...
