Sunshine

It was like reading a good book and being interrupted by a song that perfectly fits the situation- reading a good book in bed on a perfect Sunday afternoon. I got out of bed only to realise I didn’t reach the part where he’s flying an airplane aimlessly across fields. That’s one of my favourite parts in the book. “The world is your exercise-book, the pages on which you do your sums. It is not reality, although you can express reality there if you wish. You are also free to write nonsense, or lies, or to tear the pages.” Somewhere down the line I see myself getting closer to oblivion, and if I get anywhere close to understanding myself, I guess the work’s half done.

Today was so strange. I was the happiest person for a couple of hours and then I went into this weird mood (I’m still in the mood actually) where I sit in my room with my blue light on and give myself into randomness. I listened to my favourite songs, downloaded a few and then spoke to my best friend. We laughed about the strangest things and some not-so-strange things. I like the flow of random thoughts that come after a long, happy conversation when these good memories just flash past. Some of them surprisingly didn’t involve another person. If you don’t have the person, you have yourself, and if you’re lost, you have the city. All you need to do is take a walk down the street to find your way. I see myself half way there. Yeah. It was exactly the same feeling- like reading a good book and being interrupted by a song that perfectly fits the situation- reading a good book in bed on a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Inked X 3


"Lately I've been feeling low
A remedy is what I'm seeking
Take a taste of what's below
Come away to something better
What I want is what I've not got
But what I need is all around me
Reaching searching never stop
And I'll say...

If you could keep me floating just for a while
'Til I get to the end of this tunnel...mummy
If you could keep me floating just for a while
I'll get back to you

Take a Jimi Thing
Just to keep me swingin'
I'd like to show you what's inside
I shouldn't care if you don't like it
Brother chaos rules all about
Sometimes I walk there
Sometimes, God knows, I take a bus there
I should't care I shouldn't care bereaved as
I'm feeling...."


So this is a little thank YOU and a reminder to myself that I have the greatest people as my friends and family. Thank you for lighting up my life in ways more than one, bearing with me when I’ve had rough days and laughing with me at other times Not to sound all deep, but this is just symbolic of the happiness in my life and it’s just that I love where I’m at now, despite being away from most of the people I need every minute of everyday. This is because of what we've been through and what we haven't, through the years. Thank you for being my Jimi Thing.
