Finally, I managed to get my most recent little video project uploaded (with some help from my friends!) to YouTube, and have also successfully installed a Blogger video bar on the side margin here. All this technical accomplishment may go to my head...naw. Anyway, please do have a view sometime when you want a giggle. There's one for dog lovers and cat/movie lovers. And there's also the book trailer for my first volume of rock 'n' roll trivia (2007). I'm currently working on the second book/trailer, which should both be ready in a few weeks. I'll post the new trailer on my YouTube channel, too, so I'm guessing it'll turn up in the video bar as well. Meanwhile, I'm going to relax and bask in the glow of actually not having to call the mobile computer geek guy to help me figure it out. To a computer-challenged person like me, nothing feels better!
The Cloud Messenger (Meghadūta) is a lyric poem by the respected Indian poet, Kālidāsa. The poem centers around a yaksa in exile. Longing for his beloved, waiting for him on a Himalayan mountain, he asks a cloud to take a message to her. The sights he tells the cloud it will see on its way make up most of the poem.
The idea of recording observations appeals to me. I thought The Cloud Messenger was the perfect title for a blog about the journey that we all make as we move through our days.
I'm a baby boomer who grew up dancing in the streets of Detroit during the classic Motown years, lived beside the Rocky Mountains for many years, now retired and living (and writing full time) in S. Ontario. I have one blog for rock 'n' roll oldies, and one for nature, poetry and life along the Lake.
