Moment of clarity

First though:

Clearing up. Can definately see the summit now. For awhile there looked like I'd need an airlift out, but looks better now.

And I'm no longer being pelted with stuff. Well, no more than usual.

Main event:

So, you may be wondering why I keep talking about mountains. Simple. Metaphor.

Sometimes it is just easier to talk about something other than what you're REALLY talking about. It can be illuminating as well - there are facets to the idea of mountain climbing that I really wasn't aware of looking at the actual situation. I'm going through a rough patch right now and will admit to being sick of talking about it in the numerous situations where speaking metaphorically is inappropriate. This blog is not such a beast.

So, mountains.

Plus, it amuses me to make references to other things. The whole idea of a mountain standing in for difficulties was suggested by an Elvis song. Not the first with the idea, but I happened to hear the song at just the right time.

On the topic of references, this post and the previous both have references related to the band Pink Floyd.

I'll take that as proof things are 'clearing up' for me.

I mean, I didn't even try really.

Hey You,

Well, for a short while you had to say Goodbye Blue Sky when things were Obscured by Clouds, and were also Meddle(d) with by Animals. But then a voice said Let There Be More Light and Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, which made the Fat Old Sun Stay. Maybe I’m just experiencing A Momentary Lapse of Reason or even have some type of Brain Damage. You’re probably thinking Wot's... Uh the Deal. Well, it’s been a long week. Maybe One of These Days I’ll Have a Cigar and some of Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast until I feel Comfortably Numb.

No, I Take it Back.

Wish You Were Here In the Flesh,

-SS

Ack. "Momentary Lapse of Reason". We don't talk about that here. Which is better than The Division Bell, about which we deny all knowledge.

Uh ... what was that again?
