So Junior and I have been planning this for a while, and I’ve been thinking about it for even longer. Due to my recent spat of funemployment, and my current lack of a travel itinerary, I have a bunch of time on my hands. Hopefully some of that time will go to sharing some amazeballs music.
Counter to my current and very state of inactivity, I’ve been running around this and the European continent for the past 3 months. Along with some amazing friends, I got to see some of the coolest places this world has to offer.
As I was running the other day, iphone in hand, Modest Mouse hit me with something stirring…
I move on to another day, to a whole new town with a whole new way…
It was perfect to describe the past 3 months, always on the road, new cultures, interesting people always at arms reach. And that sense of restlessness?
I like songs about drifters – books about the same.
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane.
Walked on off to another spot.
I still haven’t gotten anywhere that I want.
Did I want love? Did I need to know?
Why does it always feel like I’m caught in an undertow?
Seems poignant for me, as I feel I’ve been searching for something for the past decade of my life, and I feel like I’m finally starting to figure out what that is. Now to go get it…
