Natural vs Nature

Not even going to talk about the tragedy that is my hair today. I think this has soildified that curls and me are just not going to happen until I get back to North America and my curling iron with the HUGE barrel for hair like mine. I’ve seen people in this country with really good hair and I just want to know, where the hell are you people getting your curling irons? Why can’t I do anything cute with my hair??

Anyway, I’m having some issues living in the now. I made a new mixed mini-disc on Sunday and have pretty much been immersed in it ever since. I’ve been looking for excuses to get out and walk somewhere by myself so I can listen to it. Some people have things like food or porn or whatevr to get them through the duller parts of the day, but not me. I have my music and my imagination. I just put on the headphones and slip off into my own little word (“That’s where I’m a pirate!”). So I’ve been spending a lot of time there as of late. And it seems that most of my fantasies have nature in there somewhere. Be it a cottage by the lake, a road trip through the less populated parts of North America, walking through the woods or swimming. I think my heart is telling me it’s getting maxed out on the city again. I have nothing against city life, I just need breaks from it once in awhile.

I grew up on the waterfront, on a plot of land that had so many trees and gardens, squirrels and birds that it was like watching your own nature show when you looked out the window. I spent a lot of time when I was home at Christmas just looking out our kitchen window at the family of ducks eating the feed my mother leaves on the waterfront each morning. Part of me needs that in my life. Of course, there’s not a lot I can do about my nature needs right now, so I’ll have to get my fix in my head. At least it’s about 9 degrees in Prague today and the air smells a little less like smog and a bit more like spring. All I need are some flowers and my desires may be satiated… at least for a little while.
