It is a beautiful sunny but very windy day. I am true to my word and have spent most of today in the sun. I had to get groceries and visit with a friend but that visit took place outside, a bonus.
I had a funny incident. I was following an empty gravel truck and suddenly the driver was making erratic signals. I wondered if something was wrong. He started to pull off the road so I was watching intently, being a careful driver. All at once he stops and jumps out of the cab, waving fiercely. I though something was wrong for sure, something serious. It was a friend who recognized my front license plate and thought he'd stop for a chat.
I had a friend come visit me out on the deck this afternoon and we shared a couple of drinks and solved all the problems in the world so the day is as close to perfection as can be. I offer and receive perfection quite often in my little life. A sunny day provided it today as that is what I wished for. The older I get, the less it takes somehow , to really enjoy the day. I appreciate how much more each day teaches.
Oh the music! I feel like Top of the World by Patty Griffin but you want something new. Great, actually! I went there to link it and it was one of the once removed so here it is again. I LOve this song!! I now get the opportunity to feature it again. I want to upload them all, Perfect White Girl, What You Are, Sooner Or Later...and so much more. These are all from the same album, Silver Bell. I've listened to her songs two nights in a row now getting this blog together. She's an incredible writer, Patty Griffin. There is so much to choose from. Really, check her out.
Those mentioned are all choices for new material. I have several of her best songs linked if you care to search the blog at the top left. Oh, to choose! I choose Perfect White Girl because it reminds me of a line I used this week, "I wasn't born a white girl".
I'm brown again!!!
