Sometimes a song just flows you into life. Or a momentary experience brings forth a lyric or two that just seem to fit the mood. This was my afternoon drive to get the kids from school in Fort Langley.
“They were all in love with dying they were drinkin’ from a fountain
That was pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.”
“I don’t mind the sun sometimes- the images it shows.
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes.”
The jacket I was wearing had a faint odor of chemical cleaner. The strange thing was it reminded me of a life twenty-five years ago. A time when girls wore scented lipgloss and fruity perfumes.
“Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies.
You never know just how you look through other people’s eyes.”
Sharing my life and these moments are the best I can do to show the world who I am.
