Spent today feeling a little more relaxed about life. I am not sure if this is because I should feel relaxed, or whether I just need to. The promised late summer heatwave has yet to materialise, and we were treated to a damp dull day today. I have a clear head about life at the moment, and I am not feeling too overwhelmed by everything, but I am only too aware that this can soon change. Today saw the release of the remastered Smiths albums. Many fellow fans have complained that this is simply hypocritical and that it is a case of “Re-issue”, but I am quite relaxed about it, especially when you consider that Johnny Marr was at the controls. I listened to it for most of the day, and whilst at first I struggled to hear too much difference in some of the early material, it became clearer as we went on. I think I must know every note of these songs and I can only be thankful that I do not have an electronic gadget to tell me how many times I have listened over the years. It would probably make me weep for all the wasted time. On the other hand, this music has inspired me onto so many other things, and whenever I return to it, which is not often these days, it always brings a warm smile to my face. I think they were my first real love.
We continued with Game of Thrones in the evening and are now over half way through. It is an excellent series, and I would recommend it to any of my readers who have even a sneaking regard for Lord of the Rings. It is quite graphic in places, but I have to say, I think it is all the better for it.
