I’ve used this video before….but it’s late and I’m flailing for a quick blog to keep my run complete….and it’s a good song…so I’ll use it again.
What state name rolls off your tongue like “Idaho”?
There should be a kazillion songs called “Idaho”….but there aren’t all that many.
I guess that if the few that I know of are this good….or as good as Josh Ritter’s song….I should be happy with the ones that I know of.
I just heard the line in this song where she sings “tell me Phaedrus….’what’s good?’ “.
I’ll have to listen to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance again….
There are a million and one places that aren’t “here” that I can fixate on…and suppose that they might be better… when I’m tired and unimaginative.
But….and here comes the broken record…the one that keeps coming around no matter how tired I am or how itchy my feet get…it’s pretty darn amazing right where I am.
It’s amazing…day in and day out…it’s amazing.
If I poke my head out the door and open my eyes, I’m going to see something pretty amazing.
And the really good thing about that is to realize that it might not be the place that is so amazing….maybe it’s the eyes that I’m looking through that let me see “the place amazing”?
I see with my brain….looking through my eyes…and if I get my head together, my brain holds the right attitude….and what I see is amazing.
I can go anywhere.
I’m convinced….where my eyes and heart are….where my family is…is pretty darn amazing.
That’s a good thought to go to sleep on.
