Inspired by Nature, The Fray, Wind, and Disarm

The day was beautiful today…  I loved it.

I think what I liked the most was that the weather was perfect:  clear blue sky, about 80 degrees.  What inspired me was a combination of driving fast in my Dodge Charger (which I have still not named) with the windows down and skylight open, while listening to Absolute by The Fray, and driving through the west side of Roseville that is still undeveloped.  Right by my house there are huge open fields that just go on and on… WOW it was amazing.  Can’t get much more inspiring than that.  I even took a picture of myself while I was driving…

I listened to Absolute at least 10 times today…  And while I was driving home tonight–cranking Absolute with my windows down–I was so inspired that I pulled over and wrote some lyrics of my own…  Then I cranked the music, and sped home.  Wow, I love feeling inspired :)

And when I got home the inspiration didn’t stop.  My roommate mentioned Smashing Pumpkins and that he had the music video for Disarm–easily one of my top 5 songs of all time.  Needless to say I watched it a few times…

siamese dream is a good album, i think sweet sweet might be the best song from it though.
