Twenty years ago today - give or take a few days - I arrived in America. Bright-eyed, worried of the future. Oh, how time flies!.
"It is a very beautiful day…I did not know until now that clouds could be like this. I did not know that the sky is the sea and that clouds are the souls of happy ships, sunk long ago. I did not know that the wind could be tender, like hands as they caress - what did I know - until now?" (Unica Zürn)
The clouds this morning and this evening were just magnificent to look at. This morning’s were thick and fluffy like cotton balls. This evening’s clouds were like ocean waves. Lovely to look at!
I finally got access again to my old YouTube account and my old playlists. This was in my LMAO list.
I refused to let the disappointment of the day stop me from enjoying the beautiful sunset I saw on the drive home this evening. If I wasn’t driving, I would’ve stopped to take a picture, instead you’ll have to take my word for it that it was splendid! Tomorrow is another day, and I’ll be taking this song’s advice -
"A busy and difficult day is starting
It’s tiring, it was tiring
Getting hit, being hit, got hit
I’ve hit my limit of enduring
One bottle of energy drink doesn’t work
My head is still spinning
Getting stress from the piled up work
Just let both hands go, I’m done.
Everybody hands up clench your fists
Shake everything off, drink water and cool off
Everybody hands up open your hands
Forget everything, drink a glass of water.”

I was going through photos in my phone and found this. Cue Frank Sinatra: 🎵 Start spreadin’ the news, I’m leavin’ today. I want to be a part of it - New York, New York! These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray, right through the very heart of it - New York, New York!🎵
Ah, I wish I could go again. Fun memories. #Day58 #100HappyDays
So adorable. I’m smiling like a fool. 💛💙💜💚 #B1A4 - #SOLODAY Comeback Stage
The opening chapter of this book I’m reading (The Humans, Matt Haig) is incredibly funny. It gets better too! You should know that book is written from the perspective of an alien.Lund
This is another favorite scene from a movie. This one is Running on Empty (a somewhat apt title to represent what my days have been lately) with the late River Phoenix. If you haven’t seen this movie, you have to.
This is one of my favorite songs (High and Low by Greg Laswell). Given the lyrics is a bit sad, it’s probably weird that watching this is the happy moment of this very long day. But I do love listening to this song and reading the played out lyrics just made it extra special.
