I think I’m finally back into the groove of the semester. Which, if history is any indicator of the future, means that I am either: A. About to get wickedly sick. or B. Time is about to start really flying by and summer will be here soon. I’m riding the fence on whether I’m okay with option B. I want summer to be here. I’m ready for summer Smallmouth and to move back to the motherland (Texas, for those of you that didn’t know). But summer means that my time at Indiana is over. It means that I have to get my dissertation data collected ASAP. It means the end of this season of life and the dawn of the next one. Not to get all sentimental, but it’s just the reality of life I suppose.
I’ve been listening to a lot of folk lately. I mostly blame my friend Devon. He sent me down a rabbit trail of folk artists that I still haven’t found the end of. This week’s Thursday Tunes is “Full Moon Rising” by Neil Halstead. It was apparently on Parenthood on NBC, which, back when I had time to watch every show on tv, was one of my favorites. It’s well written, deep, and shot incredibly well. I’m sure that I’ll eventually see the episode with this song in it. For now, I’ll just keep typing words into my dissertation and listen to the song.
