HERE I AM!

I have this album by Joshua Kadison. It's only about a million years old, but well-loved. I adore his voice and his poetry in his songs. I so highly recommend it. And since it's so old, you can probably get it for like 37 cents on Amazon.

And you know how sometimes you hear a song and the words just stike you as a perfect description of how you feel right then? Here's one of the songs from the soundtrack of my life right now. I can't seem to get it off autoplay...

Woke up this morning with a funny feeling...
wasn't really sure what it was all about.
But it felt like I was disappearing,
so I ran to the mirror to check it out.
I said, "Here I am, here I am, here I am...
but why do I feel like the invisible man?"

I stumbled back into the bedroom,
and stared out at the rising sun.
Then I heard myself shout out the window,
not really talking to anyone.
I yelled, "Here I am, here I am, here I am...
but why do I feel like the invisible man?"


Lights went on, people started yelling,
"Will the crazy man go back to bed?"
And there I was, laughing out my window,
feeling much better now,
somebody heard what I said.

Well it's no big thing, no revelation,
no answer to these lives we lead.
But I think I do know one thing;
Sometimes I think we all need to say:
"Here I am, here I am, here I am"-
when life makes us feel like the invisible man.

Lights went on, people started yelling,
"Will the crazy man go back to bed?"
And there I was, laughing out my window,
feeling much better now,
somebody heard what I said.

Woke up this morning with a funny feeling,
wasn't really sure what it was all about.
But it felt like I was disappearing,
so I ran to the mirror to check it out.
I said, "Here I am, here I am, here I am...
but sometimes I feel like the invisible,
here I am, here I am, here I am...
but why do I feel like the invisible man?"

So here I am shouting:

HERE I AM!!!

Hello? Is anyone out there?

I think everyone went off to Christmas vacation just a tad bit early. Not that I'm feeling lonely or anything... Sigh.

Hope you're enjoying your time off. But boy will I be glad when we get back into the swing of things...
