“As a man I ain’t never been much for sunny days… I’m as calm as a fruit stand in New York and maybe as strange… But when the color goes out of my eyes it’s usually the change… But damn, Sam, I love a woman that rains…” — Ryan Adams, “Damn Sam (I Love A Woman That Rains)”

Saw my friend Spencer perform tonight at a Northwestern music festival. I love being inspired by my talented friends. In other news, I went to therapy again today, and told the counselor I was skeptical about the whole “therapy thing”. The woman said she appreciated my honesty. That would only help her *help me* better. I think I’d be more comfortable with it if she didn’t look so intensely thoughtful while I was talking. I’d like a therapist with a healthy sense of humor.
