Strange things happening lately. I am shifting and staying put all at the same time.
This has been in my head all day - I'd embed it buuuut apparently you can't watch it on Blogger for copyright reasons. Gorillaz - Don't Get Lost In Heaven
I FINALLY went to the Museum of Jurassic Technology over the weekend; it was...dark and confusing? I loved it. I probably could've taken a few photos inside even though they ask everyone not to, but I totally forgot because it was just so friggen interesting. There's also a rooftop garden where everyone can enjoy the free tea that they give out to visitors - it's tranquil and beautiful and I think my heartbeat slowed down quite a bit while I was up there. If you're trying to propose to me or feed some birdies or impress me or somethin', that's a good place to take me.
I feel the same as I did 3 hours ago or 3 weeks ago or 3 years ago, really. My heart feels full and I look at things in a different way than most. I'm just having trouble figuring out where to put it all. For the past few years I've struggled a bit with feeling like I wasn't "normal" enough - especially lately. Not that I'd ever want to be NORMAL normal. You know what I mean, though? I'm a wildcard and I don't mesh with the desires/expectations of so many people, but when I do, it is an electric explosion of color and light and is, quite frankly, a relief. I will happily take a great conversation with one person that truly understands me over 100 conversations about boring shit with another. I'm just not a "filler" kind of person. I have to keep reminding myself that there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Maybe no one knows what I'm talking about.
Also important to note: I forgot how much I love Maurice Ravel. The orchestral version of Le Tombeau De Couperin takes my breath away sometimes. Listen with me
