Closer to Fine

Closer to Fine

I’m trying to tell you something about my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
And the best thing you’ve ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously
It’s only life after all

Well, darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable
And lightness has a call that’s hard to hear
And I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety ’til I sank it
I’m crawling on your shores

And I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There’s more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
Closer I am to fine
Closer I am to fine

And I went to see the doctor of philosophy
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
He never did marry or see a B-grade movie
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
Got my paper and I was free

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There’s more than one answer to these questions pointing me in crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
Closer I am to fine
Closer I am to fine

I stopped by the bar at 3 A.M
To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend
And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board
Twice as cloudy as I’d been the night before
And I went in seeking clarity

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain

We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains
We look to the children, we drink from the fountain

We go to the Bible, we go through the workout
We read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout
There’s more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
Closer I am to fine

Closer to Fine‘ ~Indigo Girls~

There’s nothing better than feeling fine. Most of the time when someone asks how I am I always say, ‘I’m good’ or ‘I’m OK’, which are kind of wishy washy I think. But when using the word ‘fine’ it just seems to be more relaxed, more at peace and a just a little more personal than using the word good. Maybe it’s just me, but when the first thing people say is ‘How’re you?’, I’m never sure how to respond. I mean, it’s such a reflex comment…..it’s not like everyone who asks really cares, it’s just a greeting. Because when you go to the doctor and they walk in the room and say ‘Hello, how are you today?’, I’m baffled. If I say I’m good, then what am I doing at the doctor? Or do I just launch into the reason I’m there, I’m never sure! Some think when I say, ‘I’m OK’, something’s wrong…..no…it’s just that I’m not sure I want to commit to saying ‘I’m good’, that might be stretching it a bit. I like a more benign word….something that leaves room either way in case things change for me. Lord knows my moods ebb and flow like the ocean during a full moon. Which is kind of apt since I’m a Cancer, one of the 3 water signs that can either refresh you or drown you in the depths. And who knows which one it’ll be at any given moment. 😀

A new round of ~uber~ has begun and *Just BECAUSE* is there with a new cute outfit. The ‘Nim Shorts’ and ‘Olive Top’ are loaded with options. They both come in 26 colours plus a print pack of 12 prints, which is included in the Fatpack, if you go that route. The ruffle on the top and the string and waistband on the shorts are HUD driven and they’re both compatible with the major mesh bodies, including Legacy. ~uber~ runs until September 22.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Jas’ set from RK Poses and the cigarette is from [kunst].

I’m near the landing area at Grauland for this picture.
