If it makes you feel better

I listen to a lot of music while editing, and much of that is Radiohead, depending on the particular day.

Not much thought is given as to why. Ran across this video - never saw the movie but now feel like I need to see it.

There was no father to teach me things I should have learned. I didn't have a mother there either. My grandmother did what she could, more than she should, as her health was in poor condition. I am eternally grateful for my Nana. Things could have been much different today. I don't even like thinking of that alternate reality. The one where she wasn't there. Imagining absolute nothing is more soothing than that.

I was that kid playing with airplanes. The Viet Nam War was on television. War was all around, and I glorified it. The United States was a bad ass, sticking up for the world evil. Falcons, and Eagles were better than MiG's and Sukhoi's.

I glorified military aircraft and the heroes that flew those machines. This led to a 25 year career in Aviation. I saw, did, and experienced some the greatest things in my life because of it. The Cold War was cool to me.

But things started to change. Perhaps it was Marcus, born in 89, and my wondering what was going to be around here for the prime of his life? Or, his children's lives.

I changed. I am afraid of Money now.
