Okay, I'm sure that you've all been out there living your lives and thinking your thoughts, feeding your dogs and cats, planning your plans, and questioning your very existences when all of the sudden, your next big idea is on a three for one special somewhere. It's like, as soon as you come up with an idea that you know is a hit, someone else capitalizes on it big time. Like that time that Charlie Brown and I came up with this great pre-quel to the Batman story where he starts out by traveling the world and learning martial arts from the eastern world (we were in Korea at the time), only to return to the states and see Batman Begins step into the box office.
Well, I have had many of these experiences, but just the other day I was in my local grocery store picking up a few things for dinner when I decided to stop at the comic aisle and see what was there. You see, Miranda is getting really interested in pursuing a career as a tattoo artist and I thought maybe she could check out some comic books for creative inspiration. And there under a pile of assorted tales superheroes that you could file in the "wow that's great that you've got the ability to dress in tights and a funny hat and go in public but I've never heard of you, man" category, is a comic with the album title that I've been considering scrolled across the cover.
You might think that I'm a little superstitious for thinking that this means something, but hey, I would agree with you on that. The thing is, Tarot cards have a tendency to be correct in my life. So do horoscopes and signs and wonders. When I am not sure which way to go, I surrender myself to the whims of the universe, and see where it will take me. The universe is moving, so if you stand still for a while, you will have moved further than you could've on your own sometimes. You dig?
But don't let me be misunderstood here, it's not that I necessarily think that all of this mysticism is the guiding force behind things working out in my life. I think that by allowing my mind to envision the Utopian future that a horoscope and a Tarot card can present, I doom it to fulfilling that future. By wanting the good to occur so much, I don't allow it to end up any other way. Then again, it could be that I'm just not letting myself truly see a negative outcome for what it is. Either way, I'd say i end up with the long end of the stick, and I'd like to point out that THAT is heavy.
