I’ve Been Agonizing All Day About This… My 1,000TH Post…

Until Just Now.

I Realized I Never Agonize About My Posts.

I May Agonize About Not Having Put Out Enough Posts In A Day…

…Or A Week…

…Or A Whatever…

…But They Don’t Usually Make Me Fret Wanting To Do Them.

If There’s Agony About Individual Posts…

…It’s Generally Because I Don’t Feel So Great When Doing Them.

Not About The Posts, But Me, Physically/Mentally/Emotionally/Etc.

So I Didn’t Think This Post Should Really Be Much Different Than Any Other Post.

Yes, It’s A Personal Milestone.

Yes, I’m Happy To Have Reached It.

Yes, I’m Happy You Keep Coming Back To Check’em Out.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

But…

…You Know Me Well Enough By Now To Know I’m Notย Supremely Invested In My Milestones.

At The Beginning Of My Bloggin’ing Adventure I Celebrated Them ALL.

Then, For The Longest Time, I Didn’t Even Mention Another Milestone Until This Blog Snagged Its 75,000TH Hit.

That Milestone Was/Is, Indeed, Great.

But I Think This One…

ย …My 1,000TH Post

…IS Important For One Major Reason.

It Shows I’m Willing To Commit To Something…

…And I’m Willing To Try To Go Long-Term With It.

I Love Working On My Blog.

I Derive Great Joy From It.

So I Think The Best Way To Celebrate…

…Honestly…

…Is To Simply Say…

THANK YOU, My Peeps.

THANK YOU For Sticking With Me.

THANK YOU For All The Comments AND Kind Words.

THANK YOU For Giving Me The Chance To Have Fun With You.

And…

…Hopefully…

…With Any Luck…

…Good OR Bad…

…We’ll Still Be Having Fun When My 2,000TH Post Comes ’round.

THANX, Kiddies!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “ONE CARESS” by DEPECHE MODE (1993)

*** *** ***

“…I’m Shying From The Light

I Always Loved The Night

And Now You Offer Me

Eternal Darkness. …”

*** *** ***

*** *** ***

“…I Have To Believe That Sin

Can Make A Better Man

It’s The Mood That I Am In

That’s Left Us Back Where We Began. …”

*** *** ***

*** *** ***

“…Oh Girl

Lead Me Into Your Darkness

When This World Is Trying It’s Hardest

To Leave Me Unimpressed

Just One Caress

From You And I’m Blessed. …”

*** *** ***

I Put On My MP3Player…

…Headed Out The Door On My Morning Walk…

…And This Song…

ONE CARESS

by

DEPECHE MODE

…Was Already Waiting For Me.

I Think I Played It FOUR TIMES During Said Morning Walk.

I Played BOTH The Studio Version AND The Live Version.

It Didn’t Matter To Me.

I Just Wanted To Hear It…

…And Again…

…And Again…

…And Again.

I Was Going To Do A Morning Mix…

…But All I Did Was Listen To The Whole Albums Of…

SONGS OF FAITH AND DEVOTION

…And…

SONGS OF FAITH AND DEVOTION: LIVE

…All The Way Through.

But Why The Song…

ONE CARESS

…Out Of All The Brilliant Songs On The Albums?!

Why Did This One Song Stick With Me Today?!

I’m Sort Of Unsure, Actually.

I Don’t Wanna Say…

“Because It’s The First Song I’d Heard Today.”

That Could Be It, I Dunno.

It’s The Simplest Answer.

But As DEPECHE MODE Question In Another Song On The Album…

"Is Simplicity Best Or, Simply, The Easiest?"

??? ???

That’s A Damned Good Question, Actually.

What Do YOU Think, Kiddies?!?

I’m A Touch Curious, To Say The Least.

ONE CARESS

…Is A Wonderful Song…

…And It’s Actually Paced Pretty Well For Walking Purposes.

It Kept Me Going Out There.

6AM And Already 80-Degrees Outside, But Feels Like 90?!

Yeah.

I Was Tired And Sweatin’ Hard By The End Of My Little Tour Of The Town…

…But, Once Again, Great Tunage Comes Through In The Clutch.

You Can’t Knock Great Tunage.

It’ll Come Through In The Clutch Many More Times Than Not.

That’s Good Enough For Me.

Is It Good Enough For YOU?!

Again…

…I’m A Touch Curious.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Please Have A Great Friday, My Peeps…

…And An Even Greater’ish Weekend!!!
