It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you...
Without a strong rhyme to step to – Rakim
Hi! Remember me? John? Perpetual underachiever prone to fits of unwarranted optimism and profanity?
Yes! Of course you remember! Because you're one special motherfucker and life is beautiful!
Anyway. I'm back.
I'll save the details of my whereabouts, perhaps, for another time. Suffice it to say it was a weird bouillabaisse of a summer – a mixed-bag kettle of road trips and stasis and sorrow and sun. Disparate ingredients thrown together and clumsily seasoned by the untrained hands of a hungry fisherman.
On the bright side, fishermen know how to stay fed. They know how to work with whatever they've got. They know that eventually the flavors come together. Eventually the bones fall away. Eventually they'll feel full again.
I'm feeling full again.
So if you please... kick it Rak:
Dance wit the speaker 'til you hear it blow
Then plug in the headphone 'cause here it go
