Saturday Single No. 359

There’s just too much of everything today. Too much left on my to-do list for the week. Too much canning season chaos in the kitchen (the season is, thankfully, winding down). Too much time spent early this morning waiting for sleep to take me away from the latest Stephen King novel (titled, ironically, Doctor Sleep).

The Texas Gal is off at a quilting class at one of the local emporiums, and I have errands to run in a dreary and damp midday. I feel adrift and unfocused, but if someone were to ask me “What’s wrong,” I’d likely just mutter, “Well, nothing really.”

But it is, as Bob Dylan’s song goes, too much of nothing. (“Send them all my salary on the waters of oblivion . . .”) And that allows me an easy out this morning. Here’s a 1970 performance by the British band Fotheringay – including the brilliant Sandy Denny – of Dylan’s “Too Much Of Nothing,” and it’s today’s Saturday Single.

    Your last paragraph, and the Dylan quote, reminds of a Neil Young couplet from 1979’s “Thrasher”, off Rust Never Sleeps:

    “It was then I knew I’d had enough,
    Burned my credit card for fuel ….”
