I was over in Idaho. I watched friends race in a crazy bike race…. one where you [the cycler] rides around a track with different obstacles… some where you have to get off your bike and actually carry it… crazy. Fun. After party. Also fun.
Had to work the next morning. Early.
Drove over the pass to get to work on time. Early.
Music on… on random.
This song came on:
It touched me… of course… cuz I’m a baby.
So peaceful… a beautiful, dark morning. And then Bruce [my little engine that kinda could… aka my car] slowly, but surely, reached the top of the pass. I peaked and then was blinded… blinded by the most beautiful sunrise I’ve seen. There it was: The most beautiful pink and gold through the purple clouds, with it’s light oozing all over my favorite town in the world. I pulled over, to admire. My sweet little home town, fast asleep… being kissed by the sweet morning lips of a smiling sunrise.
Oh, wow… I have to take a picture of this… Knowing my ever-loving-attention-self, I’ll probably wanna blahg about how beautiful this is… Where’s my camera?…
So, I grabbed my camera, stood out on the edge of the gravel and got ready to capture. Batteries – dead.
Dammit! No! C’mon camera! Just one picture… Just oooooone little picture…
But, no. No batteries = No picture = No sharing.
No sharing. No, Rach. This one is just for you. Know this. Soak it up… remember.
Beauty, as you see it, is going to be yours only. You’ll share later… maybe… but now, gosh, all your’s. Get ready to be illuminated inside… cuz it’s gonna be bright… get ready.
– Thanks for smoking with me… I needed that.
– No. Never again, actually.
Best Thing That Happened to Me This Week [aka perk #256 of my job]:
Yeah… Just in case you missed the caption, that is definitely a scarf [scarfascot] that a client from my work made me. Have you ever seen anything so sweet? Probably not. [i love it and wear it often.]
What I’ve been listening to for a whole second:
Yes, I know… not new. But I’m liking it hard.
Goodnight, you lovely heartbeat, you.
