Melancholy is a lovely word, isn’t it? The feeling is not so pleasant, but not terrible either, and if I’m going to feel melancholy, the beach is a good place to do it.
Lonely by default, I think. Not a great friend, I’m here when you reach out but I’ll let forever go by, thinking of you warmly, never saying a word. As if a FB “like” says it all.
I was looking for lonely music and found this song. Country music of course. YouTube won’t let me embed it, so I’ll try it as a link: Running Kind. If that doesn’t do it, just search YouTube for Running Kind – make sure you get Merle and not his kids.
Also this: (Waylon Jennings – Lonesome On’ry and Mean)
Oh! And some more Waylon here Waymore’s Blues. Actually I might just be a Waylon fan. Sigh..
Anyhow, there I was on the beach feeling melancholy and lonely, and then I thought, you know, if I’m going to be all blues-ed out, I might as well be on the beach while I’m feeling it. And that made me laugh a little bit.
I’m doing better these days. Work is good, and if home isn’t great, I’m thinking about options. You know, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover…. Kidding, just kidding…
