California Dreaming

I keep getting the song ‘Hello’ by Adele stuck in my head. I keep playing it on YouTube over and over again. Do you ever do that with a song you like? Just keep replaying it until you’re finally sick of it, or move on to another one and then start listening to the new song over and over again? The phrase ‘I’m in California dreaming’ keeps getting stuck in my mind. I recently went down there just to get away. It was wonderful to be warm again and see sunshine and flowers and ocean beaches. I realize I’m on the train to Brokeville, so it may be my last trip on a plane for a long while – but it was so good to just escape my life that is falling apart around me, and just be free! It’s raining here in Oregon, things aren’t any better at home. In fact, they may even be worse, but somehow despite the fact that my soul feels heavy from the weight of all the things going wrong in my life right now, my heart feels light, as I’m still in California dreaming in my head…
