Yesterday, I stared at a computer… almost literally all day.
I finally left the apartment to get Thai food at around 9:30. [which, p.s., tasted like corndogs.]
It was funny. I was doing work. Working. [okay, yes… facebooking and gazing at beautifulness as well.] But, mostly working.
And I like outside. I do… but I didn’t really want to go outside. I knew what I had to get done and I just sat there [cup of coffee after cup of coffee] and did it… with little desire to go out. Most of my fellow Jacksonites would not understand, would call me crazy. [p.s. i am a bit crazy.]
I listened to this song… [a bit ironically]…
…over and over.
[it be my new fave.]
Then, this morning, with the heavy fog everywhere, the song rang in my head.
It made sense.
I really wanted to go outside. I wanted to walk around, listen to good music, hit up antique stores, wear layer over layer and let the day take me where it could.
Find beauty. [not in the mountains… where most people find it here.]
I wanted to find it out in people, in smiles, in meeting, in conversation.
I wanted to go outside.
