  what up world.
i was just outside walking
when all of the sudden
from the heavens above
lots of it!
i got soaked.
i got stoked.
played drums dripping wet for an hour i did!

this weekend i'm going to province town with mickey, brie, annie, and leah.
we're gonna have an afternoon picnic on the beach. it's gonna be beautiful.

my life is totally balanced right now ... for the first time since high school i feel content and at ease. it's awesome.

  i like
cleaning out drawers
learning drums
1640 mile long drives
the sun
one chord songs
anna's bike

it's hard to
be submerged
in an empty house
people gone
weird stomach
lola going bonkers
silent phone
for weeks

GPA saving the
mandolin that
saba strummed in
streaking through
lamp-lit streets as his
baseball glove slipped
off his
sunsoaked skin
onto friends
landscape friends
sipping cinnamon bun
boxed wine
like drum fills on the 4
front seats
windows down
we are

  i'm laying on my bed listening to the sweeping hum of the street cleaner outside.

this reminds me:

the first time i got a parking ticket i was parked on the street when the cleaner was out.

the second (and last) time was because i didn't put money in the meter.

both times i discovered the ticket just after being paid for playing a show. so both times i have been fined i didn't care.

because getting paid to play a show is like getting paid money to go on an awesome rollercoaster with all your friends. it is beautiful because it doesn't make sense.


i am laying on my bed and the window is open and my feet are cold and i don't want to move.

and i remember that feeling well

of the rare, unfortunate occurance of a ticket

after singing and laughing with my friends

and strangers

and getting paid for it
