I sold my piano
It couldn't come with me
I locked up my bedroom
And I walked out into the air
When nothing I needed
Is left there behind me
I walk out through the shadows
Of Washington Square~washington square counting crows
i got the new counting crows album, breaking my rule against buying albums off i-tunes, during a late night music need. it came with a track by track commentary. while listening mr. duritz talk articulately about the things and experiences that had inspired this most recent album.
in the delirium of late night i listen the album...and was struck by this song especially. it is about moving away from what you know to enter into something new. this is where my life seems to be moving currently to a large move to a new place away from so many of the people i have my life with. over the next few months i am working towards the possibility of moving down to los angeles and living into the dream of being there and trying to work as an actor.
over the last few weeks i have ran the gambit between being completely blown away by the possibility and by being absolutely stuck with fear.
