"...and wishing you were far away"

A horrible day, it's cold and the sky has that mid November tint that's probably called "Suicide grey" in god's sample book. Paul Weller got it just right in "That's Entertainment":

Days of speed and slow time Mondays,
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday,
Watching the news and not eating your tea,
A freezing cold flat and damp on the walls.

That's entertainment.

and later:

Feed the ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

So I've just spent a few minutes day-dreaming about the heat and light of the South Western United States, where I once drove 972 miles non-stop from Phoenix to Denver, via Flagstaff and Albuquerque. Oh to be back there now.


The nice photo is one of several by Martin Mathis, you can see the rest of them here.
