{today}

 photo IMG_3587_zpsa67bccde.jpg Today was a day for brainstorming, thinking of a thousand possibilities and dreaming elephant ocean universe big and doing the opposite of narrowing down.

It was a day for a giant, sugary, whipping cream-capped mocha with equally sweet friends in a cozy coffee shop. It was a day for aimless wandering and having the time to stop and listen to an elderly violinist with cold fingers and a warm smile.

It was a day for long, meandering conversations and short, squirmy baby snuggles and gulps of crisp but not-too-cold winter air. For traffic lights and comfort food and slippers and piano music and smiles for and from strangers and thank-you prayers.

And as lame as it sounds, it was a day for staying home on a Friday night to sort my iTunes library and make sure everything has it's correct song title, artist, and album art. Because if that wasn't done first, I wouldn't have any fun going out tonight anyway.

  2. Glad to know I'm not the only one who gets OCD about their iTunes library. Last night I sorted all my photos and felt this huge weight come off my shoulders.

  5. I am so late to the party I am sure, but I just figured out (thanks to google) how to combine songs into the album they came from if it is like soandso featuring suchandsuch - and then those songs go out of the album...that drives me crazy!! But I finally looked it up last week and fixed my itunes library and did get a feeling of peace and satisfaction!

  6. Ah! I just saw that you did this post! And I did one basically the same. And now I'm worried you think I've copied you when really all that happened is - we both have awesomely similar minds.
