June 3, 2012 About colder worlds and rainy summer walks
It rained today. It was a sunny warm day, until I went out of the house, after I finished my two projects for next week. When I went out, it was only warm, the sun was behind the clouds which were quite grey, and it started to rain. I went into the Irish pub for a beer. I like it there, it’s a bit like an unfamiliar place, like this place isn’t even in my town….
So when I wanted to go home, I told E. that I didn’t want him to take me home, that I could walk alone.
And there I was, alone. Like so many times before, I walked around town alone. It felt uncomfortable at first… It smelt like rain and like fresh summer, and fresh air. I love the smell of rain.
But alone. I hurried; but I was still alone. And I started singing Hey Jude, by The Beatles.
So there I was, walking alone on the street, singing Hey Jude. People could have thought I was crazy; oh well.
“And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder”
And I wonder… wasn’t I making my little world a little colder?
