i'm not sleepy and there is no place i'm going to



there were plans for a $1 movie last night. at the old theater downtown where stale popcorn litters the aisles and the seats are threadbare. plans to sink deep into them and watch a mediocre movie with my head against robert's shoulder in the dark.

there were plans to cook cabbage for the next day, to wash and sort all the laundry, and start packing for our trip to the coast tomorrow.

but there was only a sliver of sunlight left when i got home from work. and some sweet friends had brought by tacos and cheerwine. and my pup was freshly groomed and in need of a good slow dance. and robert was still in his blue collar.

so we made a picnic beside the garden. and watched the sun set behind the cucumber plants. and i played mr. tambourine man until night fell on the yard.

and that was it. that was our night. there is still laundry to do and plans to make and deadlines to meet.

but in the jingle jangle morning, we awoke happy. so really, all is well.

i love evenings like that, doing things on a whim always turns out to be the best. Sometimes putting so much planning into things they become dissapointing

Sounds so lovely. Mr. Tambourine Man is one of my favorites. Also, I'm with you on the Phillip Phillips song.

I think "Mr. Tambourine Man" is just perfect. My favorite Dylan song. I love the imagery.
