Learned a new word just now: anomie : social instability resulting from a breakdown of standards and values; also : personal unrest, alienation, and uncertainty that comes from a lack of purpose or ideals
I wondered for a moment if that's what the current generation is. But actually, I think it's the opposite. The anomie generation was maybe in the 80's.
I wanted to assign it to a generation because I was just downtown and saw a gaggle of young women walking somewhere. I felt like I was performing an anthropological study - my god, the shoes! And the short skirts! And the flowy clothing! Amazing. As I went into the store, they really did sound like a gaggle of birds.
Hmm... maybe I have anomie. Lack of purpose? Kinda, though looking for one. Though, a job isn't so much a purpose. Ah, never mind that.
I actually worked a whole 20 hours last week. Wiped me out! Ha.
Last night I did my 4th? 3rd? grave. I am improving and it's great to see it. Hear it I mean. Experience it. I had one or two sets which I was pretty proud of, a set being 3-4 songs linked in some way. Some say I sound good. I'm not so bad.
Cramps. Gonna go now and read.
