Back in '92 when I got back into Ren Faire after a medicaly mandated break (that's it's OWN story) I discovered a wonderful percussion instrument called bones (and for those of you who know who my step-parents are I am sure you are probably as bemused as I am how I managed to miss that these existed).

Anyways, I loved them immediately and bought a pair in rosewood. Over the next couple of years my collection grew and I added three more pairs to the first, one in purple heartwood, one in lacewood, and one in ebony. I still have all four pairs, but I have always wanted a pair in real bone.

Today, after 15+ years of waiting, my bone "bones" arrived. And they are BEAUTIFUL!!!

I am now the owner of a pair of Black Barts Bones. 7" long and shiny and lovely looking AND sounding. OMG.... SOOOO lovely.

So - I got the new Josh Groban album a few weeks ago. He apparently did this one "for the fans" and it shows in that it's got a very different feel than his other two I have. And he co-wrote some stuff on it, words AND music.

So - there's one song on here that's caught my brain. It really resonates with me - and he cro-wrote it with Imogen Heap and it's got her signature vocal jumps (thirds anf fiths) ALL over it.

And yeah - this song says so much to me right now. Not certain why or in reference to what in my life. But I love that it's about endings and partings - but not accrimonious ones. I think it also touches on the few left over sore spots I still have about my first husband - mebbe this is what I wish we both could have said then. Cause while I don't miss him as a husband (we never should have gotten married) I *do* miss my friend a lot sometimes - and yes I CAN separate the two.

"Now or Never"

I watched the morning dawn upon your skin
A splinter in the light
It caught and frayed the very heart of us
It's been hiding there inside for all this time
How a sure thing winds up just like this
Clockwork silence only knows

And it's no one's fault
There's no black & white
Only you & me on this endless night
And as the hours run away with another life
Oh, darling can't you see
It's now or never, it's now or never

Sweeping egshells still at 3am
We're trying far to hard
The tattered thought balloons above our heads
Sinking in the weight of all we need to say
Whys and what ifs have since long played out
Left us short on happy endings

And it's no one's fault
There's no black & white
Only you & me on this endless night
And as the hours run away with another life
Oh, darling can't you see
It's now or never, it's now or never

Now or never, now or never
You know that there's so much more

And it's no one's fault
There's no black & white
Only you & me on our final night
And as the hours run away with another life
Oh, darling can't you see
It's now or never, it's now or never
