I am smitten by this photo and the song it comes from. Listening to Elliott Smith is so bittersweet to me (Cyndy, I know you will agree!!), which is much like the month of May. Summer is approaching-- the weather teases us and makes us want to go on adventures--skip work, skip stones, skip through the grass and forget about what's left to do. Lately I have felt so overwhelmed with my spiraling 'to-do' list and the growing piles of stuff around my apartment-- but on days when the sun is out and the air is clear, I only want to sit outside and bask in the possibilities that sitting still and breathing can bring. Even last night, while driving home from my dearest Cristyn's house, I was lucky that the road inside Silver Lake park was open and the night was clear--- (Islanders, you should know this, everyone else, imagine a twisting road perhaps a mile long that breaks through a local park with little streetlight and plenty of peaceful fodder for the imagination)--I drove through and was transported back to all of the moments I have spent in the park, dancing in the moonlight, watching the comet in 1997, sitting on the bridge and making wishes with the ripples of the pond---finding ways to get lost in the everyday.
To finding ways to get lost in beauty anywhere you are! And, YAY FRIDAY!
