random ramblings

I’ve recently started writing down my thoughts immediately as they flow through my brain.  It’s a bit like that word association game.  You know the one….

I say blue:: you say the first thought
that comes to your mind.

Below are my candid thoughts, written at a coffee shop & another from an airport.  It’s fun, really.  I shall do it often.

March 25, 2010// Opening Bell Coffee, listening to the lovely Molly Jenson:

woke up early but didn’t want to…yummy chick fil a breakfast & a package pick up at the apartment office – full of pretty things like the moose in my living room & the shirt I’m wearing now…work was meeting, meeting, meeting, grapes & chocolate, & then another meeting…home! sigh…wrapped a wreath with yarn & ready to finish by adding flutterbys – pretty – my first attempt at a wreath…drove to the opening bell to listen to pretty music…I miss Brando…journal open & writing for the past two hours because that’s what you do when you’re alone at a coffee shop…which reminds me – where are my friends?…eh, I’m a loner – so it’s not too horrible…music, coffee, dim room, pretty, acoustic guitars, empty wine bottles left by the girls who asked to share my table, full tip jar, Jimi Hendrix, & fat tire…hand cramp – ow…barista with cool glasses – maybe because they’re like mine…Molly Jenson – should I say hi?…nervousness/self conscious thoughts setting in because that’s what happens with new people…but I love my shirt – it has a heart on it…and a bow in my hair…that is all.

PS – I did meet Molly after the show and she is just delightful!! Plus her music is fantastic and original and you will be hooked if you give it a listen.  Scouts honor. xoxo

    I miss flying. I must do that this summer. Also, I am annoyed by those facebook notifications about liked posts, too. ha ha. Airports are truly special places … The world is always going through them and there’s so much urgency and importance. Or something.

    Have a good rest of your trip!

    Um….they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…please consider it so when I start up my own rambling thoughts on my own blog….i LOVED this! While reading I had some rambling thoughts….I think like this….I love that we are friends. I have a memory of you when we were doing Grace at the Abilene Convention Center. You came down to pray with the band – I clearly remember thinking “Please God let us be friends one day”…..tearing up a little because He said yes to that prayer…I remember that moment in time often not really sure why. You are fun and crafty…I like that you do things with a sense of adventure and fun…always seeing the best in others….I long to be that way.
    I am also a loner…sometimes by choice….mostly by not wanting to bother other people. Airports are my favorite places on the planet next to beaches…and airport next to a beach…heaven really.
    The End.
