This morning I was driving in the blue light of the year's first morning and was listening to the new Mates of State album. I had just seen some good friends. I loved that there were hardly any cars around. There was a hazy fog blanketing the city, but it wasn't fog, it was probably just firecracker smoke. But it still looked nice.
I was smiling.
Good ingredients for forgetting whatever troubles you've got right now, if only for a few minutes.
Happy New Year, everyone. And the sense of promise that brings. Let's enjoy it while it's here, and keep it from getting broken.
I'm parking at sleepless planet for the foreseeable future.
