Depressing or Not

The human mind and body is quite fascinating to me. It seems that even when all things are on the up and up one can feel like complete garbage. I experienced this yesterday and most of today. There is nothing to be depressed about, yet I am. As I get older I can feel it coming and try to prep myself for it so that I don't rely on the emotions tied to it. I know I will come out the other side fine because I've done it over and over again. But being in it is no fun.

On a lighter note, my teeth are jacked up. I haven't been to the dentist for a couple years now with moving and having no insurance so it's getting to be that dreaded time. I can just feel that they need attention. Metal objects scratching bone, drilling on nerve endings...not overly enjoyable, but necessary.

I'm learning "Have You Met Miss Jones" (Joe Pass Version) and it has been very good for me. It is the type of song that keeps interest with key changes, interesting chord movement and blazing licks. Thanks Joe.
