Why I Love The Indigo Girls

"Now I'm tryin to get back
to what I know that I should be
hoping to God that I was just
a temporary absentee."

- Gerard McHugh

I love and adore the Indigo Girls. They are far beyond amazing. There is something about this music, something that reaches deep places you never knew you had. It is much, much more than the sum of its parts. This music makes me truly feel like I'm home and reaffirms my belief that as long as one person understands me, then it doesn't matter if no one else does. When I met Emily Saliers this past summer, I was so ecstatic to be standing in front of her that I neglected to tell her how grateful I am that she does what she does, because her music has saved me from myself many times. I've posted behind LJ-cut the lyrics to my favorite songs by the Indigo Girls, the ones that represent something precious to me. If you don't know these songs by heart, then shame on you.

What the hell is the matter with me?

I am in the strangest mood these past two days. I'm aggravated, I'm tired, I'm depressed, I'm totally out of sorts. I have no cause for this, I have no reasons specifically to merit any of this, I just feel like these crying jags are lurking around the corner just waiting on me to make that turn - and for what?

So what do I do when I feel like this?

I fired up Photoshop and figured I'd do some brushwork or something, but there is nothing inspiring me right now. I wanted to take some new pictures today, but it was too sunny. I only really like my pictures when it's overcast outside, I get better light that way. Not that it really matters, I haven't shaved or anything today and I want to be clean shaven for new pictures of myself. I'm definitely taking some after I get that sweater I want, I already have ideas for those images. Maybe on the day I go to take them, which will be either a Saturday or a Sunday, some of my friends will want to go downtown and take some with me.

I think I'm going to throw up, my stomach is doing all kinds of gymnastics. I need a theme for a desktop, that's what I need. I'm going to listen to some Joni Mitchell and come up with something.

Everything is just...
Just...
FEH!

And by the way, while I love Fred Durst and Limp Biskit, whomever said that their cover of "Behind Blue Eyes" was better than The Who's original is seriously disturbed.
