I got in the car, and drove myself today for the first time in over a month. Felt a little weird. Since I fell I have been relying on the kindness of others to shuffle my arse to and from. Patient friends and family I have. But my leg is doing much better, although still sore and bumpy, I can move about.
Gripping the steering wheel in this deep freeze we are currently experiencing (I think the high today was -20’C) I couldn’t help but wish I lived in a warmer climate. Preferably with rain and mild temperatures (cough, England). However, since that’s not possible at the moment, I find putting some heat into my somewhat broken down car stereo, helps. In order to get a CD to play, I have to rub it on my leg for good luck. Weird, I know, but it works.
Anyway, here are two songs on my car playlist for today.
“Soft Summer Girls“ – Barzin
This song kind of breaks my heart. In a good way. I love the line, “By the light of the kitchen, I’ve been reading your notes. Didn’t noticed I’ve forgotten the sound of voice…”
“Central” – John Frusciante
I can’t really make out the words to this track, but I enjoy the music, especially round the 6 minute mark and the strings at the end.
Although it physically hurts to be outside in the cold for any long period of time, I do rather enjoy how the sun hits a pile of fresh, untouched snow. Especially through the lens of my Elton John-like sunnies. Oh, you haven’t seen those yet. In time.
