Tourist towns are a drag sometimes...
"Romulus" from Sufjan Stevens
I went for a walk along the pier this evening, as I like to do. It was a beautiful evening to put on a sweatshirt & the. Things looked quite a bit different from the last time I was there, much less crowded. I know Grand Haven's economy depends on tourism, but I can't help but be selfish & enjoy it much more when the tourists are gone. It's beautiful on a night like this, with fewer people it seems more like home, mostly fishermen, runners & folks walking their dogs, & me. The best part of a walk on the pier is not the walk towards the end, but the walk back with the sunlight going down on the land.
Maybe I just hate crowds. So the next time you come to Grand Haven, make sure it's on a cool night during the week.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
Holland-Sufjan Stevens, Michigan
things will end before they start...
Honest With Me-Bob Dylan, Stockholm, 2007
It's a bit strange for someone in his sixties to write the lyrics;
when I left my home the sky split open wide
I never wanted to go back there, I'd rather have died...
I always loved this lyric, & the way he sings it when he's on, his voice mimics the sky splitting open wide...
One By One-Wilco, Mermaid Ave
The Sprout & the Bean-Joanna Newsom, The Milk Eyed Mendor
Dress Up in You-Belle & Sebastian, the Life Pursuit
Happy fall evenings, friends...
