COLOR OF OUTDOORS

Into a long December

First of all,

Yes, that happened! Hey Rosetta with a holiday album! I love it. I wish they would play a show in Goose Bay.

I had a pretty relaxing weekend. Lots of apple cider, time with friends, drives around town and writing. I did some painting and sketching too. Someone really needs to recommend an area of town I haven’t tackled yet for photography. I’m pretty sure middle dock/second dock is sick of seeing me. I did get something a little different today though.

All of my Christmas cards are ready for the mail. I’m not giving out as many this year. I also cut back on gift giving this year, just my parents and my best friend Savannah. Times are a little harder this year.  I wish it would snow, and snow, and snow.

I’ve added a few things under the poetry tab too, give’r a glance.

shoreless.

I stared at the word
Until it made no sense to me
Just a grey blur on the page
Am I making the same mistake twice?
I didn’t understand poetry at first.

I wish I could trust people’s predictions
The uncertainty eats me up
Vitally I’m 20 beats ahead
Visually a dozen behind
What’s left?
Not enough change in my range.

Stumbling through my sentence
I stared at the world
Until it made no sense to me
Just a blur across the stage.

What if I couldn’t tell you my stories?
I’m just a civilian,
Not quite a lady,
With lace ambitions.

M.

I wish you would.

Ryan Adams – Come Pick Me Up

One of my favorite songs by Ryan. Just one of those songs that particularly struck me today.

Here’s some images from my jaunts around town today.
