Like Water I Had No Colour, Running Free... [userpic]

With Or Without You...

indescribable

current location: in the hold pattern
current mood: indescribable
current song: trucks outside?

Mind still blown, heart singing loudly, spinning in a most miraculous way...



There's this thing that happens when I rejoin the circus. It's profound in a way that most wouldn't understand. It's a look, a smile, a simple sit in silence that lets too much time apart fall away. It lets years meld into weeks or days and puts all of those who truly mean so much to me right where they should be. Proximity. Heart and soul.

I wonder at times, does this band that is oh-so-much more than 'A. Band.' have any concept of the impact they make beyond the big ideas and the emotional catharses offered. I wonder do they know the bonds that have been formed between real people, real lives, that would likely never have occurred had they not been a starting point.

Right now it's tough to make a re-entry into The. Real. World. - which is pathetically surreal to my soul, most of the time- So tough. And yet, holding onto the past week gives me enough oxygen to keep going.

So I raise a defiant fist, my sandwich held high- for the that is the GA-way- and I say to ALL who have touched my life more than you will ever likely know...

Thanks and see ya's soon.

still standing where you left me

I have to say, in the space between tours I got lost. And I thought it was forever, until the exact second I saw the four of them - our boys - even before they'd played a single note. I was head over feet again, falling back in so fast it made my head spin.

And it's all rushing back, memories and thoughts and feelings, and it's overwhelming and awesome. I'm so desperate to keep it going that I just continue to make crazy decisions and spending money I don't have because I need this. I miss it, I'm longing for it, and wondering where it all went. I'm just so glad it's back. And that's it's not over, no quite yet.

the air you breathe

ME TOO!

And, well, I've got the headlamp and belaying equipment all rounded up. I'm ready to go all the way back down.

Which sounds hella dodgy, but I'm strangely okay with that.

Is very much of the good.

*cracks the fuck up!!*

Going all the way down is ... good... I've heard.

btw, so glad will actually get to 'see' you in Pittsburgh, maybe not quite so brief/crazy as Nashvegas!!

belong to me

I've heard that as well. You know, don't want to do a thing half way and all that. Heh. I'm in for a penny and all that.

Me tooooo! We'll be in town by 1:00PM the day before, so we can actually, like, hang out not in line! And maybe be in line nearer each other?

2 Tricksy

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm-icon.

We're actually getting in on Sunday, directly after Minneapolis, somewhere around 10am, I think? So yeah, should have plenty of time...maybe even that drink finally!!

I've been especially lazy and just resurrected a bunch of my old icons. But I was in dire need of them, so I'm glad I had them around!

Oooh, so very early! Might you two (three??) be first in line, then? But yes, more than enough time for a drink at least! I definitely want more time to chat with you. Which is why I insisted on an earlier flight on Monday. :)

Facepalm

[am out of b/e icons. oh no-essssss]

They're lovely! Deserve resurrection. Like a Phoenix rising [needs a holy tree]...
... why am I having so many B/E JT-era thoughts? Oi.

Oh, the way these shows have been going likely not first! Hoping to be in the first 50 though and certainly time for ... time! And there's the McCormick/Killing Bono thing, too! It'll be grand!

let me love you true

[Think this is my last one, hee. I need to make more.]

There is nothing wrong with B/E JT thoughts. Remind me, did you play B in one of those RPs? I was feeling very nostalgic the other day and read though a bunch of RP stuff. What a fun time that was, wasn't it?

I'm very excited! I feel like I didn't get enough time to talk to you in Nashville. Also, I've had a couple drinks, so apologies for typos.

[mmmm, the pretty! I need to do similar, I think]

Heh, they're very pretty, you know? And yeah, I did, do. Got the same nostalgia bug here, right? Read through old stuff, even wrote a few fic lines yesterday. Was a brilliant time. Miss it, actually.

Think it will be really good. Nashville was so hurried... and hot! No apologies!!!

take the horns off

[I know! I was good at making icons, back in the day. No, sooo lazy, hehe.]

Ooh, fic! By you! That's always a good thing! :D And I'm actually so glad to hear you say that. I miss it a lot too, and thought I might be alone there!

Me too. I'm really excited! And so glad we get another chance this year! Yay! Lots of exclamation points!

I'm Not Sleeping

[Who has the time to make icons? Hahahahaa... [should make the time]]

I don't know, something that just started in brain on lonely drive back from Chicago. We'll have to wait and see if it goes anywhere. Do really miss it, you're definitely not alone. If you ever feel like a trip down memory lane, you know where to find me!

LOTS!

[Agreed. Icon making > work? Somehow I don't think anyone but us would agree.]

I will be preemptively excited! And will offer encouragement as well! I've written a teeny bit of something myself, though I haven't had time to add to it lately. As far as the memory lane trip, I'm definitely interested! Very very, in fact. Very. Hee.

Oh my God. That icon is like... seven years old, isn't it? Holy shit that brings back memories.

Oh gosh, at least! I think I made it back when there were those icon contests. Do you remember those? Oh man, the memories that have been coming up in the last month or so. Wonderful times, I miss them a lot!

I do! God, it's so weird. Like... it used to be so big and was sort of Everything and now it's a memory. Oh man. Do you remember Cleveland 3? What times were had.

I know. It was like eat sleep live breathe U2, all day, every day. I go back and look and see how immersed I was and it's just fascinating to me, who I was, and how that's shaped who I am NOW.

Oh man, Cleveland 3. That was the first time I met almost everyone. And had such a great time, too. Cheryl and I are determined to do a Cleveland reunion here in the near future. Part of our plans: remaking the Numb video. :)
