#691 - As soon as my friend Jill arrived this afternoon it started to rain a little (which would be ok), then thunder (which would not). So we talked a little and I played her songs on the guitar.... Then we tried to go to the lake, but it started lightning so we turned back.... Then we made a salad and ate dinner...The whole reason Jill came over today was to Kayak, but Not Once Did Jill Complain about the Fact that She Might Not Be Able To. I watched and waited for it to come, but nope she just Enjoyed Herself.

#694 - A week or two ago I wrote a song in anger. I was surprised that it didn't come out angry, the writing transformed my emotion. One friend called it melancholy. I've changed the music a little since and today Jill called it relaxing. So now the Song I Wrote in Anger is Closer to a Lullaby
