Feel good moment: sitting by the pool painting a flower

Feel good moment: sitting by the pool painting a flower

today was a rough day. there was no one moment that defined today but small moments that built up into strange emotion. my comfort was found when i got home and watched a favorite band play a live stream concert. music seems to be the constant. the piece that holds what seems to be fragile pieces of broken glass together. 

“And I thought about how many people have loved those songs. And how many people got through a lot of bad times because of those songs. And how many people enjoyed good times with those songs. And how much those songs really mean. I think it would be great to have written one of those songs. I bet if I wrote one of them, I would be very proud. I hope the people who wrote those songs are happy. I hope they feel it’s enough. I really do because they’ve made me happy. And I’m only one person.”

“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.”
