I had to borrow deodorant from my husband today because I was out. Somehow, I don’t think Old Spice’s Swagger is really me. Funny how a little thing like fragrance can make your whole day weird.
I’m in a Ryan Adams mood today.
I heard Answering Bell this morning and it was what I needed to hear, for some reason. I didn’t know this song of his. Why? Well, I got home, looked it up, and saw that it was on an album released in 2001. Yep. Those were the brain-turned-into-applesauce years for me, y’all. They were hazy years, ya’ll. Years that I just basically endeavored to not lose my marbles.
So, it is a happy thing to hear it today because, thankfully, most of my marbles remain and my brain is not 100 percent applesauce now…though on the actual percentage I don’t really care to speculate.
(He reminds me strongly of Van Morrison here. What do you think?)
Are you in applesauce-brain years? Fear not. They, too, shall pass.
This I know.
And, I will always like his song, Dirty Rain, from the album, Ashes and Fire.
Not really bouncy, happy songs, necessarily, but they fit my bill for today.
Happy Monday, y’all!
