Friendship

"A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down." Arnold H. Glasgow

An unexpected visit from a friend combined with a day spent wandering the streets of a music festival has left me with a tired smile. It's also rumored that my heart grew three sizes yesterday. I'm just hoping that my waistline doesn't follow suit.

We drank, we ate, we spotted a dead on ringer for Dr. Spencer Reid from the TV show Criminal Minds. (Who knows, it could have actually been him). We took in the various music styles offered at the free venues. We bar hopped. We laughed. We delighted in watching the array of people who crossed our path. We bonded.

In the natural order of things, to balance the beauty of the day, my keys escaped my purse and have not been seen since. We didn't even mind. Giggling like school girls, we waited at my car for one of the girls' husbands to rescue us.

A friend drops in, we taste the music , sip beer,
Proxies of individuality expand our hearts,
As we float through multitudinous atmospheres,
A friend drops in, we taste the music, sip beer,
As we float through multitudinous atmospheres,
Keys escape my purse, a new life to start,
A friend drops in, we taste the music, sip beer,
Proxies of individuality expand our hearts.

  1. I love the music fests, and the Jazz Festival here in Rochester, NY every June is wonderful! I see you're in Austin: I'm originally from Houston, with family in Austin and just about every city in the state. But Austin is my favorite!

    Thanks for visiting me today!
