Tuna Fleets

Really?  Tuna fleets?  Do tuna really travel in fleets? I may have to Google that, eh?  Regardless, today, weather-wise, is NOT a beautiful day, yet yesterday and all days now following are somewhat more beautiful.

I love this song. No alarm today, but after the events of yesterday, this song immediately started looping in my brain this morning. Depression has taken it's ugly hold over my brain again as of late....lots of shitstorms, so very few umbrellas. Going on Year #3 without finding substantial, gainful employment outside, or inside, the home. Car that we bought in 2005 with 112,000+ miles, finally gave up the ghost about a month ago. Been stuck at home, with no means of transport, without having to borrow a car or wait until my beloved gets home from work. (Allow me to qualify all that:  We live in rural Ohio, five miles outside the nearest town and at least 20 miles from the nearest city) No car = no way to get a job. No way to get a job = no way to qualify to get a car payment that's even humanly affordable. That good old Catch 22. 

Needless to say, we are blessed.  Due to the kindness of not-so-strangers, we now have a second means of transport and I can once again give a concerted effort to getting another job so that we can continue to make our way towards being completely debt free and be able to accomplish some of life's loftier goals. Today, indeed, is a beautiful day. My husband is a beautiful man and others, who shall remain nameless to protect their privacy, are beautiful in every way.

Looking forward to being able to repay the kindnesses forward, backward, sideways and all around. x 


The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground

But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck and you're not movin' anywhere
You thought you’d found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day,
The sky falls and you feel like 
It's a beautiful day,
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road but you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over and it’s been all over you

It's a beautiful day,
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day,

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me love, I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
A beautiful day

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
It was a beautiful day
