Mood for a Memory

The procrastination bug caught me again and I could just not find my way back here or the words needed.  Honestly, my brain needed a rest.  Right now I am listening to an old familiar tune sung by Anna Nalick her song Breathe (2AM) and these lyrics stood out:

Two AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
Inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd
‘Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to

Yes, I needed this song right now.  I need to breath and keep walking forward.  I know these are just words but my photos are just moments in time.  When you really think about it, I am just capturing a memory and life is about making memories or is it?  Not sure any more.  All I know is that maybe my husband is has been right all along when he mutters “All we have is today”  when ever I say something.  It usually pisses me off when he says that, but now I am kind of embracing it.  He is right, all we really have is right now.  Sometimes, we need to do our own things and not worry about what others are doing.  Thanks Anna Nalick, you don’t know me and you probably didn’t mean even mean to send this message but this what I got from it.  I am just going to keep pushing forward in this world of followers and hope I can keep breathing and continue to be me.

Right on cue, Thank You by Alanis Morrisette just came up on the play list.  My husband and I live like overgrown teenagers.  Seriously.  We live off of fast food, donuts and such.  We joke around and I love following him around when plays bass in what ever band he is playing in and he drives me around so I can take photos and to whatever music event I just have to see.  Since my surgery, he has been amazing.  I won’t elaborate but, I waited 18 years for him and it was well worth it.  Anyhow, often, just drive around the valley and eat dinner off the side road and catch the sunset wherever we end up. A few days ago, we captured a few photos as I am feeling stronger.

How to Save a Life….by the Fray Another good song I have not heard in a while.  I love peaceful mornings like this.  We had such a busy weekend.  Jim played at the Red Barn and at a private event in Desert Hot Springs on Saturday.   I like getting to slowly edit the goodies that I captured and my plants. Yeah, I grow shit, I mean stuff.  My day, I move around from place to place, never staying still for to long.  Today is the first day of physical therapy!  Another step in the right direction and hopefully I will get more mobility as I would like to get back out there and be able to bend more so I can get better shots!

It’s Taco Tuesday and tacos make me all giddy….yeah…
