A good day for the Blues

Dark, rainy, and quiet. That was the day given to us in our small part of the world. Days like today really make me reflect on the ordeals that I've been through in my life. The same way a song or a smell can send you back in time. Rainy days are my gateway to another time.

I had the day off today while Meghan was at work and Tillie slept...all day. I took full advantage of my solitude and played my harmonicas. See, I like to play alone because I'm awful. Really. If I'd practice more I would probably be pretty good, but I don't. I have a good feeling when I play though. If you have ever created music, art, writings, etc. that really channels your true emotion then you know it is an amazing feeling. Whether you are good or not!

We took the day off from working out (training) because it was a day of rest for us. Pushing our bodies too hard won't do us any good. Especially Meghan, the half-marathoner!

I'm glad to have had a wonderful day like today. Even nostalgic rainy days are appreciated.
