A Day Off 
In The Life of James Beard:
Afternoon 1:00-3:00 pm

Song #111: Queen - All God's People

My dad told me once that a Russian tradition done before a trip, is for everyone to stand together in one room in silence for a minute to gather themselves before all bursting into conversation and out into the world in the blink of an eye. In the case of today, its me alone on my stoop enjoying a smoke and trying to get Top Cat to not squirm away as I pet him. I tell him I hope he has a great day and hop on my bike to ride into the city. Getting over the bridges can really suck some days but thats why songs like this were made. It just makes me feel alive. Freddy Mercury's voice warms my soul. You can hear endless joy, even though this is on their last album when he already knew he was dying. If the day is bright and shining, listen to this song and all you'll want to do is reach for the sun.
