brief snapshots in time. memories and thoughts. disorganized and random.

Jonny in the grass

another night in the colorful gardens. many of my friends said they were going. none did. so, tonight was just for me.

I was running late. stuck at work. I sold my extra ticket with only a few minutes to spare. but enough time to grab some coffee and a spot to listen. the coffee was for later.

I've seen him before, but not there. he was incredible, as he always is. the music dancing from his guitar, floating up to the clouds tinged pink by the sunset. it was another perfect summer evening.

songs affect me. the lyrics find their way into my soul.

will I wander this world all alone? most days I hope not. but if that's what is meant to be, I will still be happy.

I will never let anyone lie to me again. I've had enough of believing in the wrong people.

singing a song while sitting at a red light. reminding me of how a moment can change everything.

the loneliness appeared to be breakin' me earlier today. no more. I had a fabulous date tonight. with myself. and I enjoyed every minute of it.

now it's time for the caffeine to kick in so I can get past procrastination mode and get some work done. at least it will be easier with Jonny Lang songs swirling around in my head.

Awesome, sounds like you had a great time! Sometimes you have the best times alone when you can do what you want when you want to do it.

Sometimes alone time like that can be great! I avoid being alone lately, but I hope I can get back to being comfortable with it soon.
