smooth stones beneath me

It's been a stressful week, not for any one reason but just all these little things and doubts and lack of sleep. I went up to Edgewater yesterday to walk along the beach and be by the water and the waves and just felt very alone, even though I've got more amazing people in my life than I know what to do with.

I've been learning that while emotions are natural and good, they can also skew your perception of the way things really are. When I chill out and step back, I always wonder how I got there.

It's not the first time I've felt this way, and it won't be the last. Usually I channel all this into guitar playing and paintings covered with scribbles in sharpie marker and colored pencil. But last night I couldn't even bring myself to do that.

If this past week had a soundtrack, it would be this song, which still rocks my world.

Reading that actually resurrected some emotional angst that I often box up and put into a lil secure place in my conscious.

I may not know how you feel but I can relate with the coterie of unwanted stress with seemingly no influences that sparked it's appearance.

Melancholy in nature that was actually a good read....
