I need this day to “un-suck”. I need it to unstick and unwind.
I could choose to unravel and go low on its 24 hours – I could click its 1,440 minutes away as unhappy.
Good thing I binged the BoDeans this morning. They were my 4:30am car-ride-companion.
Sun light fall down on the fields
Sun light fall down over me
Work all day be all that I can be
Say I can say words only simple
Say I can say words only clear
Oh I can feel your heart is beating near
Yeah-heh (Good Things by the BoDeans)
Instead of hating on the day, I will take lead singer Kurt Nuemann’s advice; keep it simple and keep it clear.
And I say no no no don’t pass me over
No no no don’t pass me by
See I can see good things for you and I
Yeah good things for you and I
I can’t let this day pass me over or pass me by. There are always good things when we keep it simple and clear.
Good things protected the silver lining of my day: a cold brew coffee and the world under my feet.
I, too, see good things for you and I. Find the simple, find the clear. Find the un-suck.
