On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: The Milk Carton Kids, *All The Things That I Did and All The Things That I Didn't Do* (2018) . . . this California folk-rock duo returns with an album as pretty as their others, in some ways even more personal, sad, sweet, a record to wrap in like a well-known old blanket on a snowy day . . .

* Featured Classic Rock Album: Billy Joel, *The Bridge* (1986) . . . I was such a obsessive fan of BJ's 1970s work when I was young . . . but by when this album came out, I felt like his music, while still great, had moved away from me . . . then happened to see a disparaging review of this album recently, & decided to give it a long overdue second chance . . . it's really good! end to end . . . the best of the best is his duet with Ray Charles, "Baby Grand," but it's just fine every song . . . nice to really get it . . .
 
* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 18 of *The Unconsoled* by Kazuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Many Musics*, *Bags End News*, & *Labyrinthine* . . .  & this week's featured artists are some of those featured on "Casey's Top 40 with Casey Kasem," back on 12.November.1994 . . . so good to be back on air after a month off, traveling, press work, writing . . . november's perfect cool days . . .

There is something going on there, but I can't pin-point what it is.

It's definitely a strange situation which I don't fully understand.

Without saying more I think the important piece of that post is what has been repeated below. I'm sure this sounds redundant in general, but eventually something will happen...

I think I've always known that she was out of my reach, I just don't want to accept it...

... I keep thinking that if by some miracle she is interested in me that she will find a way to let me know, and if she could send me at least some type of a clue that I might have a chance then I would not hesitate to make every first move from there on out.

...maybe she has been trying to give me hints and I'm just too dim to pick up on them. Maybe by sitting next to me, but by still being too nervous or shy or whatever to talk to me she is somehow trying to tell me "look guy, you got my attention, now act on it"

...or I could be completely wrong. It could be that she really isn't interested at all and thus goes out of Her way to not pay attention to me even when she is sitting only a few feet away.

Well, I Will probably see Her on Monday, and while I would love to be the one who gets things moving I am probably just going to sit there praying for the miracle of her approaching me.

...actually, she makes it more than easy in terms of giving me opportunities to interact with Her, she will sit right next to me, or she will sit across from me right in my line of sight, and while she is usually focussed on her mobile device I still think it would be more than easy to get her attention...

I can't help but wonder what she actually thinks of me. I know she notices me...

When you said earlier "she must see you looking at her", well, I really don't think that could be the case, I actually do my best to ignore Her, and I have been fighting my attraction for her since the first time i saw her. I think I've always known that she was out of my reach, I just don't want to accept it, I keep thinking that if by some miracle she is interested in me that she will find a say to let me know, and if she could send me at least some type of a clue that I might have a chance then I would not hesitate to make every first move from there on out.

...maybe she has been trying to give me hints and I'm just too dim to pick up on them. Maybe by sitting next to me, but by still being too nervous or shy or whatever to talk to me she is somehow trying to tell me "look guy, you got my attention, now act on it"

...or I could be completely wrong. It could be that she really isn't interested at all and thus goes out of Her way to not pay attention to me even when she is sitting only a few feet away.

This is the first time any of this has ever happened to me. I've never been too nervous to talk to a girl before, but then again, I've never encountered a girl like this before. Usually I would be happy to get shot down and then move on...

... I know everybody says "this girl is special", though I can assure you that I've never been one of them, that is until the first time I saw her.

Any way, I think it's a cause that was doomed from the start.

Unless that is she decides to talk to me. That's all she has to do.

 If she decides that she will give me a chance all she has to do is say so, and I would be fully devoted to her and only her from that moment on.

I want to ask the girl from 23rd to talk to her for me, or maybe just bring her into a conversation that involves the three of us and then slowly fading herself out.


The gorgeous brunette from 26th street on her way to work early in the morning will always have my heart, and I would do anything I could for her if she would give me a chance.

Hell, it's not like I could ever say "no" to any request she could have of me, I would do anything and everything I possibly could for her.

Most of the cats that you meet on the streets speak of true love,
Most of the time they're sittin' and cryin' at home.
One of these days they know they better get goin'
Out of the door and down on the streets all alone.
-good ole grateful dead

Great advice.

I think it's nice being able to admire someone, and to be able to see them as beautiful, but I'm also comfortable in allowing her to pass me by if that's her choice.

I've always taken a very Taoist approach to how I handle things...

...and while it seems a poor strategy in romance, I feel that in the end things will work out as they were meant to.

Looking back at my younger years, and all the girls I feared to talk to, I realize that my fear and desire and excited emotions were all about me, not whatever her of the moment. Want is exciting and mysterious, inspiring. Some people are too, and some are not. And some are but not for me or you, but for someone else.

But I now think it's better to speak up and know, cut the bubble of ignorance. If she's not the one, once you have tried, then move on. There are a billion, more than that, desirable girls in this world. Many are taken. Many are sleeping alone tonight. Given what little I have learned at this point, I would rather speak up, and move on sooner, if need be, than look and wish and want and not know. I wasted way too much time on that.

And it's likely, given how much you have looked at her and so on, she knows, and is either waiting for you to get to it, or isn't interested.

So it's about you, right now. Act. That's my advice. Good luck either way. It's nice to see this forum Judih and I have moderated for so long getting such a passionate workout in this thread.
