The First Day of My Life

So it’s not the best picture we’ve taken in our lives, but it’s still sort of cute….

This picture reminded me of swans. I spent most of yesterday laying in various parks around Denver, and as the sun started to go down, a certain air of contentment settled over me. The colors were that perfect, somehow enhanced hue that you’ll rarely get the time to see. I was with my two favorite people and even though the storm was coming, we were safe there, for that moment. We settled in and waited, and I wanted to capture it and put it in a snow globe and save it forever. But of course, I clicked madly, taking pictures right and left, but they just don’t do it justice.

“First Day Of My Life”

This is the first day of my life

I swear I was born right in the doorway

I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed

They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw

I think I was blind before I met you

Now I don’t know where I am

I don’t know where I’ve been

But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know

That these things take forever

I especially am slow

But I realize that I need you

And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night

Just to meet me in the morning

And I thought it was strange you said everything changed

You felt as if you’d just woke up

And you said “this is the first day of my life

I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you

But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you

And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me

With these things there’s no telling

We just have to wait and see

But I’d rather be working for a paycheck

Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides maybe this time is different

I mean I really think you like me

-Bright Eyes

That’s how I feel these days. That’s how I felt when I took that picture. Even with all of the drama that comes along with it, especially from my ex, it’s still lovely. He notices the little things, is aware of my moods, and doesn’t let me walk all over him.
