Decided I needed some fresh

Decided I needed some fresh air, so I’ve been sitting out here on my balcony for the past 3 hours or so, listening to Time out of Mind and the Wonder Boys soundtrack (ok, more Dylan, so sue me). It’s very nice. At this hour, it’s getting a bit chilly, but earlier it was mid-50s, and clear. Still pretty quiet, with the flights in and out of Dulles still heavily reduced…

Been something of an introspective night. Clear sky, clear mind, clear thoughts.

There’s so much going on these days, and so much more on the horizon. But tonight, at least, all I see is the stars.

Seen a shooting star tonight
And I thought of me.
If I was still the same
If I ever became what you wanted me to be
Did I miss the mark or
Over-step the line
That only you could see?
Seen a shooting star tonight
And I thought of me.
–B.D., “Shooting Star”
