Weekend peace

We napped in the afternoon to recover from the night before.

A night of partying with best friends,

Drinking tequila,

Getting lost in photobooths,

Dancing to Outkast,

and playing Supersmash Bros till 3am.

We napped and it was well appreciated.

We awoke to a setting sun. The wind was getting cooler, also calming down from the weekend that was, and we accepted that things were good. We dressed, me in flare pants and he in a patterned shirt, and headed out again to spend a night with friends.

We walked into a home that felt like a dream. Live folk music was playing on the back of an old-school Dodge, there were little kittens running around, every man sported a beard that put Stephen's to shame, there were photographers (!) and dancers and banjo players and suddenly I felt my 'cool' meter drop to -5.

We sat and watched and let the music flood our souls. The acoustic rhythms of the guitar, the deep strumming of the double bass, the melodic tunes of the clarinet; this was the music I was born to surround myself with. He drummed his palms onto my legs and I tapped my feet to the beats that engulfed us and I felt at peace with the weekend,

which was a beautiful feeling feeling indeed.

  19. Ah I was wondering whether you spotted Nirrimi there! :) I saw that she was at this along with a few other people I know and suddenly I was like, 'living in Melbourne is not cool sometimes.' This sounds absolutely awesome. There is absolutely nothing better than live music.

    Also, I hope you've figured out how to play SSB ;) I'm still just smashing button most of the time.
