drawing out the longing

the music’s beat
moves and sways
every note seeping in
memorizing each moment
drawing out the longing
soothing the sorrow
squeezing out the tears
wordless a moment
then lyrics soaring
high with the soul
the song turns to memory
ready to remind you


We headed out to Livermore today! I wanted to go to the comic book shop, Fantasy Books and Games, which ended up being a good thing because stuff was on sale! R found a Vaako for a mere $2.99, then I found a Cadet McCoy and a GORGEOUS Deanna Troi! I just had to buy them because 1) I want Karl Urban action figures when I can find them and 2) DEANNA TROI!!!


I love the comic book shop in Livermore. It’s always full of great stuff and I think if we lived there, I would be at that shop at least once a month if not more often. Oh, I did buy Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. I was actually looking at Superman stuff but couldn’t decide so settled on Batman.

Before Fantasy, we stopped for a drink at Tap 25. I had a stout. After the comic book shop, we went to the First Street Alehouse. There we had cheese sticks and I had a Syrah. And for an early dinner, we went to Cattlemens. Prime rib, a weakness…


All in all, a good day! :)
