I am in love with long weekends. I'm in love with sleeping in. I'm in love with doing nothing. I'm in love with having enough money to have fun with. I'm in love with listening to music (Dixie Chicks). I'm in love with my Mac. I'm in love with having an easy life. I'm in love with having a good job to look forward to. I'm in love with my life right now. I'm in love with the One who takes care of me and in whom I live and breathe and have my being.
I wrote this song a while back, still resonates:
Today I woke up far away from you
A stranger where such love had been before
And now it's all so broken, nothing works without you
Oh come to me and take me where you will
Past the heads, past the hills, past the soft places to fall
To the sea, where I'm with you and you're with me
It's not so complicated, just to be where you are.
I tried to find you, I still thought I could
But you're quiet and not easily swayed
You hid in all the places that I looked
Until I gave up
And you came and took me out
Out past the heads, past the hills,
Past the soft places to fall
Out to see, where I'm with you and you're with me
It's not so complicated, just to be, where you are.
I really love the way things sound. I love at my job, the plastic packets that all the consents come in because of the way they sound when you handle them. I buy earrings and necklaces as much by the way they sound as the way they look. I wanted to be a check out chick because I like the sound of the beep when they scan something. I love my Mac because of the sound the keys make when I type.
The funny thing is, that I'm deaf in one ear. I'm deaf, and I like sound. But I'm a singer and I'm obsessed with harmonies so I guess it does make sense. Oh and I write a lot of poetry and poetry is almost entirely about sound.
