when the writer doesn't have the words

i had no clue what was going on in Boston yesterday as i was typing up my post for this blog. needless to say i've been pretty glued to the news since. i am a news junkie. always have been.

i did try to distract myself somewhat last night by watching The Voice and Monday Night Raw. didn't do much good as i was constantly flipping back and forth. from what i did see, a few surprises on The Voice that i didn't see coming, especially the steal by Blake. as for Raw, anytime it ends with John Cena beaten to a pulp, i'm happy. i'm really looking forward to the show next week in London. that crowd should be epic.

the Rangers and the Yankees both play this evening. considering the Rangers are in complete playoff desperation mode, i'll watch more of that game. i'll sprinkle in a few innings of the Yankees as well as night two of the battle rounds on The Voice.

the poet of the day on my Google+ page is Henry Denander. Henry is a wonderful poet and artist. you can find more on him at his website, www.henrydenander.com. below is the painting he did of me, i believe in 2005

also on my Google+ page is some more photos from this morning. from the farm after a springtime shower. like this one
yes, i know, the grass does need cut. the beauty of living a quarter mile off the road is you can let the grass get a little longer and no one bitches about it.

that's pretty much it for today. i'll be in front of a television for most of the rest of the day. thankfully, there will be some European soccer on this afternoon that will provide a nice distraction for me.

my thoughts and prayers are with everyone who knew anyone affected by the bombing yesterday. i have plenty of friends in that part of the country and i can just imagine what's going through their minds at this time. if any of you need anything, just ask.
