simply astonished

dear friends,

tonight finds me with episode 354, and three songs i'm proud of. it feels awkward to use the word "pride" somehow - as if it's wrong or improper to admit. i'm not sure why that is exactly, but i imagine it must have something to do with the fact that pride and arrogance and delusion are so often related?? i guess rightly so. but i mean pride only in the slim/simple sense of being happy with how things came out... perhaps an amalgamation of the definition below - "a reasonable or justifiable delight or elation arising from feeling that you've said something the way you mean it." something along those lines. i hope it's not wrong or conceited or arrogant to say so.

at any rate, it's how i truly feel about these songs. i'm happy for them, imperfect as they are. like a proud parent - standing on the sidelines - saying "wow." simply astonished. "i don't know where you got those genes from kid, but i'm so happy i was dumb and lucky enough to have you!!"

if you have a chance, i really hope you'll take a listen... :)
