Smoke swirling up from the burning cigarette, the sunlight streaming in from the french window highlights the hypnotic designs. Jack Johnson playing from the credits of Curious George on the TV, it doesn't matter to me that I've just woken up and saw just the last 20 minutes of it. I'm not even hungover from last night but have enough pictures on the camera here on the table that would make you think otherwise. I remember all of it though, especially the fact that someone successfully helped me find out that it was Pearl Jams "Smile" that I was singing the two chorus lines of, " I miss you already, I miss you always". I'd googled and youtubed it several times in the past 8, yes 8 months; but never went beyond the 4th page to realize it was Pearl Jam. The sense of closure over placing a song thats been on the tip of your tongue has it's own sense of satisfaction to it.
I can hear the calls to prayer in the distance, resonating between here and the blue blue sea. Now Chatz clambers onto the couch, and acts like she's accidentally stumbled on my lap for a cuddle. She looks like she wants to raise an eyebrow to question why this keyboard is more interesting that her feline cuteness. I think I''ll leave you to smile.....
