For my sanity...and Blood Pressure

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

The daily bullshit (aka...lying) coming from the slime currently in the White House has finally caught up with me. I find myself in an almost constant state of fury...which, of course, is counter productive, unhealthy and well...stupid. But it is hard to shake.  I try to skip any news related to the sorry POS, but...it doesn't always work...good intentions notwithstanding.

When I'm in my studio painting, or drawing, I usually play music. My oldest daughter recently introduced me to Spotify and I have discovered the perfect music source. No, not discovered...introduced to.

. The great thing about Spotify is the ability to search for any song, record, group, genre and you will find it. And I have discovered not only my blues and classical favorites, but some damned soothing guitar pieces. In particular a category called Peaceful Guitar.. And, not surprisingly...it calms my rage. I can't post Spotify here, but YouTube has many videos which fit this category. I wanted to share this with you. The following is a three hour one, so listen to a little to get the idea. Or, go for the Full Monty.

it IS hard not to go into a full-on shouting punching cussing slamming kicking rage on a daily basis. I find my job and my knitting help me keep my sanity, as well as listening to classical music. and my 2 blood pressure meds.

That is beautiful music indeed! Glad it is calming and soothing for you. We all need to maintain peaceful lives, if possible!

OMG I love Spotify. I only just downloaded it a couple weeks ago because I always thought it was for purchasing music like iTunes. Now I know better, and I can listen to John Prine or Gillian Welch or Townes Van Zandt all day at work. Love it!

Numb as a stump Trump does one thing better than anyone I can think of...cause major distress throughout the world. I still can't wrap my head around why he was allowed to worm his way into the White House. He may be president, but I see him as pig in every sense of the word. I'm sorry but I prefer my presidents to look and act the part.

Well crap...for whatever Blogger convoluted reason...I'm not getting comment notifications for my blog posts. So, best I can do is apologize and say, I wasn't ignoring you all intentionally.

It is gratifying...and encouraging, to know that there are kindred souls struggling with the crap pot drivel coming out of the White House. I know am not alone. Thank you sweet Spaghetti Monster! Spotify Matters!
