I woke up with a strange sensation of happiness this morning.
At first I thought it must have been a beautiful dream I had.
But then I realized it was my life!
And the sun was shining outside my window. I opened up and let a fresh spring breeze into my room. There is a big tree just outside and for weeks now I’ve watched the greenery grow. Today it felt like it fully blossomed.
Although it was a long winter, way too cold and with way too little snow, I managed to create some memories worth taking with me when I leave this place. Which I know I will one day.
I’ve enjoyed this morning in the company of The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Michael Kiwanuka, The Shins, Fibes Oh Fibes and Of Monsters And Men, while having coffee and rooting through my wardrobe for something to wear tonight. And I thought that 2012 has been a goddamn good music year so far. I should update my 100 Great Albums’ list
But first, a run along the river.
