August 30 – Friday – Beatles – The White Album

The Labor Day weekend starts with the White Album.

Forget the cancer, the neuropathy, the lump on my thyroid, the decade long menopause and lack of sleep (okay, so maybe it’s only been five years), and that thing with my eye, I just want to get thin.

The Walrus Was Paul from Glass Onion keeps resonating with me – one of my characters has to say that. Maybe in everything I write. I was just finding it to be so incredibly profound, and particularly meaningful to me. Rocky Raccoon – As a kid, I wondered who Gideon was (I didn’t know a whole lot then), and was satisfied at the end to know that he was looking after Rocky, assuming that the outcome was more positive than it really was. “Her name was McGill, and she called herself Lil, but everyone knew her as Nancy.” How many people can relate to that? I can. Sang along with “Why Don’t We Do It In the Road,” loud and proud. Not exactly the easiest song to forget the words to. Then Paul follows that with the lovely “I Will.” It fits I guess in a normal loving and passionate relationship. But someone will have to attest to that for me.

Saturday night I forced myself to workout, putting on Side 3, feeling weary, again. Couldn’t get into it and uninspired by the album. I have to count this evening as a wash and in all fairness keep the 2nd record of the White Album on the turntable till tomorrow. I think I’ll have a beer and another chicken leg.
