By the time you read this, I’ll already be gone! Haha! I’ve always wanted to say that..
As I said last night, I lost my post. I got up super early this morning to try again. This is a very important post for me, because it’s the last one I will be doing for a while.
I don’t have the time or heart to rewrite the big post I made last night. I was a mess when I wrote it, and I don’t feel like going there again. Later today I am boarding a train (first time) and heading to the Southwest. I’m meeting up with some travel friends I met last summer to do our version of survivor-man lol. We will camp and explore and run with the wolves.
Then it’s off to the Carlsbad Caverns to meet my uncle. We both have wanted to go there for quite a while. After that I am returning with him to Austin, Texas to live with him. There is a very, very good chance sometime in August, we will move again, to Denver. TBH I like the idea of Denver a lot more than Texas. I sometimes wonder if he is taking a job there for me…
So why have I been a mess? I am going to miss Dominic loads! He has been a very good friend to me at a time when I really needed him a lot. I am also going to miss Minnesota a lot too. It’s the only home I’ve ever known. I know I can come back here someday and probably will.
So a big THANK YOU is on order:
Jay, Kevin, Sammy, Andy, Jeff, Kyle, Jeremy, Lightning, Pom, T-Man, Paul, Foggy, and anon (I know who you are) The fact that all of you took the time to look at this blog and write comments IS the only reason I had it. In the big old internet world, this is a very small place, but you guys made it possible. I don’t know when I will post again, but you all know me, so you all know I always come back.
Ok, some peeps wanted to see a recent picture of me. I hate having my picture taken, so there aren’t many. Dominic snapped one off with his phone that I actually liked. It’s not some posed fake smile. It’s me how I really am, getting lost in music.
Now the music part…
I had to open a Soundcloud account because Divshare was being a bitch. This is a version of a song I posted a long time ago. This is pretty much what I heard in my head when I made the first version. Sammy, who might not even remember, sent me some song lyrics when the idea of a collaboration came up. I had to tweak them a little bit for fitting the beat and I like some rhyming words. What is so amazing to me is how perfectly Sammy captured the vibe of the song. His lyrics are f’reaking perfect! Thanks Sammy! The only problem with the song is I had to sing into my phone mic, so the quality is not studio quality.
So here it is:
Gazing from this window midnight
City bathed in frozen moonlight
Constellations shining coldly
In darkened skies from up above
Eerie silence, nothing out there
Just empty spaces everywhere
There is nothing left to hope for
Feels like I’m trapped forever more
But in my dreams, I see a landscape
Warm, peaceful, no need for escape
Blue skies, blue sea, the forest green
White clouds slowly float by me
Gentle waves that lap on shoreline
Soft the breeze that kiss my face
A place to be and live as myself
Cruel cruel world just let me go
Let the sunlight was on my soul
Melt this ice that chills my bones
Feel the sand beneath my warm feet
Escape for me from these cold streets
Free me, take me, please let me fly
Into the arms of ocean wide
Another chance is all I’m asking
Asking to let my soul soar free
