If the below freezing temperatures and snow covered sidewalks weren't enough, a set of songs from my iPod came on, which made my mood exponentially worse.
As everyone who has ever lived a semi-interesting life knows, music gives us certain memories when we hear them and these three songs in particular reminded me quite a bit of summer, the beach, and a much warmer time.
I just wanted to drive and drive until I hit the southern coast or the sun or a beach. My heart was breaking for white sand instead of dirty white snow. But I can't just leave. I have roots here now. Or obligations to say the least. The days of driving & driving until I run out of gas are over. I'm a grown-up now. How ironic that I figured this out while listening to songs from my youth.
I am so over winter. The four seasons are over rated.
For those interested, the three songs that prompted this post are:
"All Summer" by Kid Cudi
"The First Day of Spring" by The Gandharvas
"Ocean Breathes Salty" by Sun Kil Moon
