I Have Nothing

March 5, 2009

Dear Madam Diary,

     Remember last year when I was pining over those new ipod touches? Well I ended up getting one a few days ago. I know what you’re thinking and yes, I felt materialistic, flashy, and spoiled. But you have to understand, Di! I needed it to bring to the NACA conferences to show people my music and vids at a moment’s notice. It’s nothing more than a coincidence that this thing is a hand-held miracle.

 

Touch

Touch

Holding it feels the way a new born bird would feel if you plucked it from its nest the moment it cracked out of its shell. It makes you think, ‘Dear God. This world is so beautiful. Why do people fight? Maybe I’ll go reconnect with an old friend.” 

And much in the same way one might care for a new child, I have held my Touch close beside me, traveled with it, and slept next to it. I spent a bit more quality time with it last night than I’d like to discuss. It just looked so perfect in all its wireless convenience. I couldn’t put it down. 

So I lay in my bed, making use of my wi-fi connection, and surfing youtube for videos of people doing Whitney Houston covers, as most do late at night. I stumbled upon something that made it all worthwhile.

I don’t have much else to tell you, Di. Except that I’ll be in East Stroudsburg, PA this Fri and Sat. to showcase at the NACA Mid-Atlantic festival. And who do you think will be there with me? Yeah. My Touch. Di, don’t feel jealous. I’d bring you if I could. But you know know you get anxious in large groups.

 

It’s ok. We’ll work on that.

 

Kisses and Gooses,
