So. Random subject that has nothing to do with this outfit.
I love music. I mean, very few people don’t, but I’m addicted to and obsessed with it. It has therapeutic powers for me – no matter what I’m feeling, it makes it better. As an extreme introvert, I get mentally exhausted (which is much, much worse than physically exhausted) when I’m with people for extended periods of time – it doesn’t mean I don’t like people, but I just need time (a LOT of time) to recharge. When that happens, what I want and need is to go somewhere by myself and either listen to or make music. It’s a deep, urgent need in me, that I have to have music. If I’m wildly happy, music lets me express that happiness. If I’m wildly hurting, then music lets me pour out that pain and lets me feel like I can breathe. Yes, music is like breath to me. I would die without it.
Wow. I didn’t mean to write this much. Today was beautiful, and being mentally exhausted on the way home, I was listening to Ben Rector (I love his beautiful, sunshiney, joyful music), and looking forward to being home to be able to play guitar. So that’s what brought this on. What music have you been listening to lately, and why do you like it?
I felt bad wearing this winter-y outfit on this spring day (though it was still a little cold) – hopefully it’s one of the last! But I like the mustard and polka dots combination – and I even snuck in some subdued pattern mixing.
