Back on Track.

t o d a y .

Messy hair up in a messy bun, messy bangs back behind colourful headband.
Boys oversized shirt.
Gypsy skirt.
Ani DiFranco.
Pencil and the few last sheets of paper.
Wet Ones to wipe the skin away.
Sun to warm the bones.

The scent and breeze of it all is lovely.
It is.

I dedicate this song to myself.
For I carry me around.


Carry You Around - DiFranco

How pleased can one
Sun setting make you
If you humble yourself
To it?
How grateful can you
Really say that you are
Just to be here and live
Through it?
And when beauty asks a question
How often do you reply?
How often do you wonder
About life on the other side?
On the other side of sorrow
On the other side of rage
On the other side of ok
Ok at all
In any way
Imagine what loneliness
Will drive someone to do
Now multiply that times me
And multiply that times you
Now imagine what it would take to make
This all happen again
And just when you think you’re gonna cry
Multiply that times ten
Are distracting me
From all other activities
And I know the fact of your presence
Will dominate my memory
Of this restaurant this table
This day and this town
Cuz I carry you, baby
I carry you around


Love and Peace.
