Skies, Subways and Sketches

When the sky looks blue, look up and smile.
You can only be in one place for so long.

I feel at peace in the morning - when it’s quiet and no one’s around. The silence soothes my ears like a sunset soothes my eyes. I can imagine and craft stories without interruption because, well, you know, that’s what I always do. I like to be in tune with time, by myself. It kind of makes life a little bit easier, easy like Sunday morning that is ;). I mean, my trip is an hour each day, so that’s ample time to reflect and revise, listen and learn. What do I even say to myself? Nothing. I don’t need to. I dream it out and draw it in my psyche (if that makes even the slightest sense). When I’m in tune, everything else is tuned out – the coughs, the announcements, the loud racket of the subway, the traffic of people, the breathing, the smell of warm coffee and stink…the coughs. I’m focused on the movement. Maybe that’s what I reflect on. I listen to myself that way. I can never be too sure though, ‘cause my mind is that wild. But, I never like being in one place for an extended amount of time. I feel useless when that happens. What’s the point of taking a step if you’re not going anywhere? Things can simply be without expectations, but that can’t be stagnant…right? Whenever I do something, I want it to be a move somewhere, even if I don’t know where somewhere is or how I’m going to get there. Man, why am I even typing this? I need to get back into the groove of things…No wait, I think the grown-up in me has made its grand entrance. Yeah, I know. I said S.D.M too =).
