There’s things that you believe about yourself that don’t add up This version of you, more like somebody else, but not enough And now you’re cutting a deal in your head Conscience is crystal clear once again And you lock up the skeletons
And I change my mind again Because what you see is never what you get But I’ll take my chances, yeah And you come back around here again And you say that you know things you didn’t know then
My favourite song ever (tied with Tiny Dancer).
I wish the world was flat like the old days Then I could travel just by folding a map No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways There’d be no distance that could hold us back

My girlfriend, Karen (doyouclimbintospace), is currently on a plane back home to Florida. Saying goodbye to her at the airport was one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life. We love each other a great deal, so we’re going to do everything we can to make a long-distance relationship work.
June and July of 2014 may be the two greatest months of my life to date, and it’s all because I met this beautiful human being who understands me better than anyone else. The moments we shared were extra special because we realised our connection was a fleeting one (at least for now). The clock was always ticking in our minds, and we never fell into complacency because we wanted to make every second count.
I’m crying just typing this post. I miss her so much, and I can’t wait until I see her again.
Tonight’s impulse buy: a film I should have purchased many years ago.
Some great stuff came in the mail today: a rare book about my favourite band (Crowded House), and a handy bookmark in the form of a [used] concert ticket signed by bassist Nick Seymour.
