Slow Down (We’re Going On a Trip!)

I made for the countryside
And my eyes never grew so wide
Apple raspberry river blue
I don’t wanna leave without you
In the sound I gladly drowned
Into the emerald underground
I rub my eyes ’cause it’s hard to see
Surrounded by all this beauty

It’s like dying to live, squinting to see
All of that distant thunder that never made sense to me
As every pearl turns muddy to rust
I’ll feather the breeze ’cause dreams don’t turn to dust 

Everyone has to take time out of their lives every once in a while to just slow down and relax. The busyness of day-to-day life takes over all too often, so those brief moments of quiet and reflection are too precious to be allowed to slip by. I don’t want to get so lost in duties and the details of living that life flies by without me pausing to watch it, to appreciate it.

So we’re going on a short trip, me and my family. Just a handful of days away from our normal schedule to enjoy being together. I’ll be internet-free during that time, and when I come back I’ll announce the winners of the giveaways! So be sure to hurry and enter before they close at 12:01 am on Saturday morning!
