Kinda makes ya think.
But this post is not about that. No, it's a continuation of my recent blog about how trips up north helped fuel my music obsession. So what better way to outline my trip then with a taste of its soundtrack?
The Song: Jimi Hendrix - "Voodoo Child"
The Scene: Sitting on the dock with a beer and a book, watching the dogs (Daisy & Roxie) attack flies hilariously.
The Song: Jefferson Airplane - "White Rabbit"
The Scene: Being surprised with a birthday cake for my 30th. That was fun.
The Song: Fleetwood Mac - "Rhiannon"
The Scene: Getting in the kayak. And immediately tipping it over. I am the very picture of grace.
The Song: Smith - "The Weight"
The Scene: Fishing around the calmest, clearest lake I've ever been on. I hardly caught anything (mainly the tiny rock bass in the photo below, named Bernard), but I got to reconnect with my old favourite left-handed closed-faced reel. I grew up using that reel.
The Song: The Doors - "Peace Frog"
The Scene: Swimming with Daisy, then realizing that she's a much better swimmer than I am. I could not keep up. No wonder I failed my swimming classes as a kid.
The Song: The Moody Blues - "Nights In White Satin"
The Scene: Reading in the living room with huge windows that overlooked the lake. It's apparently called "relaxing", and I usually don't know how to do it.
The Song: Simon & Garfunkel - "The Sounds of Silence"
The Scene: Driving into the nearest town to get groceries, and so I could use the internet and check in on work. The only place I could go was in the Bancroft Library, where a man vehemently warned us of the dangers of Wifi. Sorry, dude. My job is the internet.
The Song: Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Tuesday's Gone"
The Scene: Hammock discovery. I want one for my living room.
Good times, overall. The city feels strange right now.
