Tonights post is inspired by the song Colour Me In by Damien Rice. This song has been getting me through the last few days. A little internal dialogue for my life. Most days whenever I walk from place to place I am filling my head with music. Music is one of the constant influences in my life. It takes me back to my childhood. I have songs that remind me of every family member; all my sisters and brothers, my mum and dad, everyone. When people let me down – music never does. I am surrounding myself with songs that remind me how good life can be, the riches each day can bring and the light that is out there to light the way in the darkness.
I have been watching tv with my son tonight and it was good just to have a little time for him. We seem to have been on different courses through life recently and it was great to touch down with him again. I hope for more but we will see how he feels about it all. I have been a little detached from my own life recently and this is not great when I am responsible for other people but like I said yesterday I am working my way out of the darkness and finding purpose in every day again so hopefully this upward turn will continue. A little bit at a time I suppose.
I see it has been snowing whilst the night has unfolded. I am looking forward to a crisp, cold morning. Nothing like a bit of fresh freezing air to wake me up when I am walking the kids to school. I am looking forward to a lovely walk with the dog when I get my morning all to myself. Maybe write a little before I head off to work. I am starting to recognise the potential in life, my personal work and my writing again but we will see where it takes me.
