Somewhere so high above this wall...
Happy Sunday, friends. I can't remember a year when I've looked more forward to Thanksgiving then this year. I am looking forward to spending time with the family, but what I'm most thankful for this week is having four days off. My plan at the beginning of the year was to take vacation time around this time of the year, but with the new job I haven't been able to. In fact, it seems like I'm working twice as hard & twice as much, but that's okay. I think I'm getting something done. This week will be long even though it's only three days as I will be working almost open to close every day & there will only be two of us there. That's okay, too, I like to earn my breaks.
It's the immemorial feelings
I like the best: hunger, thirst,
their satisfaction; work-weariness,
earned rest; the falling again
from loneliness to love;
the green growth the mind takes
from the pastures in March;
the gayety in the stride
of a good team of Belgian mares
that seems to shudder from me
through all my ancestry.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
When the Roses Bloom Again-Wilco
If you don't love this song, I'll give you a dollar.
A Satisfied Mind-Porter Wagoner
I Shall Be Released-Bob Dylan, Blackbushe 1978
Love Would Come-Kevin Davis, Eulogies for November
I Want You-Bob Dylan, MTV Unplugged Rehearsals
I love the line, "I wasn't born to lose you". It's quintessential Dylan as it has several meanings. I wasn't born to have you, I was born to be with you & never to leave you, I was born to be with you & you are tempting fate to leave me. I'd love to be one of the techs when rehearsals like this are going on.
Happy Sunday friends, I wasn't born to say goodbye to you, so I'll just say see you later...
