“skies above, are close to me forgetting names when shaking hands friends and lovers, i’ve left behind i’m as apathetic as the wind”
– Ross Farrar, Ceremony
This picture was taken by my LG mobile phone with a cracked screen and it turned out pretty nice. It is from shoreline park above leadbetter beach in santa barbara, ca. About 7 minutes from my house.
I told myself I was going to write at least one entry for each month and to be honest I was inspired many times through the month of November but i’m also very lazy. A couple of night time bike rides taking in the smell of the ocean which was black, only shimmering by the reflection of the moon, and the palm trees swaying from the crisp fall air. The lights of the town in the distance and music I listened to when I was 16.
I’m a sucker for a trip down memory lane, sometimes I get stuck there. I guess the best way to describe it would be nostalgia. Certain songs produce certain effects and a feeling of loss realizing I’ll never relive those years. I’ve lost an interest really in writing about sports like I’m some aspiring sportswriter or journalist, I’m just a fan and think I will leave it at that. I am taking this “your life in america” concept on to its own radio show in January, it will be interesting. A place where I can share my thoughts and opinions on a variety of different subjects, kind of like Seinfeld on the radio with some punk rock and comedy. Sounds kinda weird when I put it like that, we’ll see.
“very few can appreciate the silence, the cold calm when nothing is left standing in our way.. this is joy in its greatest moments, shared only by the truly selfish. in a place where only the lonely ever choose to stand. behind every inch of pain, eyes unfazed and devoid of feeling, love has no place here, our hearts beat alone….”
onward and upward..
