  peace - leunig

peace is my drug
it stops the pain.
in safe reflecting rooms
or in a lane
or in a park
i will lie
and get some peace
and get high
if it's pure
and there's lots of it about
i overdose
and pass out
and dream of peace
my favourite thing,
when nobody wants me
and nothing's happening.

so wat gives you peace?

  Rainy afternoons, when there's really nothing to do or that's not getting done--and everyone is inside--and maybe one TV is on low but that's it, and everyone is quiet.
A warm day in winter.
A cool day in summer.
The pine trees dancing in the first weeks of Spring and and Autumn.
Napping with my cat, when he's too sleepy to get annoyed and leave.
Sleeping with the window open.
Driving through the shadow of a cloud, especially in the mountains.
Watching a full moon rise.
Lying in the grass/leaves.
Wandering up and down the road on a Sunday when there's no traffic, and just watching the fields and listening to the sparrows.
Being with my friends and family.

this one wouldnt, probably, its so old that its just kind of overgrown and uncemetary-ish. the tombstones are really unique, they're all different instead of those flat ones they have nowadays. It's a gorgeous place to be. There is something sad about it, but I still love it. I've been going there ever since i was about three years old, so it's one of the places i'm most comfortable at...I'll put up a picture sometime if i can find one...

I love cemeteries. No one ever bothers you there, either to say 'what's up' or 'what in the sam hill do you think you're doing!' And I always feel so affectionate and charitable toward the dead folk, like they haven't had any visitors in a long time, and I'm there to say hello.

Also it's fun when the cemetery is next to a busy street... and no one has actually been buried there in a hundred years, so you couldn't be visiting a loved one... and you have weird-colored hair.

  ~Sitting on the subway seat beside the window so I can put my foot up on the ledge, listening to my big headphones.

~My sisters and I gathering one by one on mums' bed on a Sunday in the summer, until we're all just lying there soaking up the sun that is filtering through the window and listening to mums' favourite song of the week.

~Riding my bike down as many downtown side streets as possible until I am almost lost.

~Walking, walking, walking through the city all the way down to the lake and taking picutres along the way
[the swans are also back (!!) and sitting by the water with them when I read is really nice.]

sometimes i think it's the little things that bring peace.

I spend the entire past weekend outside playing in the dirt. Digging, planting, growing sometimes back breaking, dirty, sweaty work. On my knees, red georgia clay under my fingernails. Getting away from the inside stuff and reconnecting with the outside world on such a very basic level brings me peace.
Next week i'm off to the ocean. Will surround myself with the sound of waves on the shore. Will completely submerse myself in the silence of snorkling underwater.

Water and earth. Hard to get more elemental and more peaceful for me.

  For Me, knowing, knowing that I know my future and that I won't admit it, or can't but that slowly sub-consciously my decisions lead me down that path.
But with it all comes Fear and Pain.
I like to smoke underwater and would love to catch a cloud to eat it. But this is not a matter of Fate, merely a matter of time.
And of course phrasing.

  Peace. I really haven't had peace in a long while.

I think the last time I really had peace was about a month ago. I was over at a friends house with a few close people on a saturday night. These are the people who I would trust my life with, etc. We were all really tired (we had been doing random stuff all day), and all knew that we had a long paper due on monday (so we would be doing it on sunday).

As soon as we left her house, we all knew would go to sleep, then wake up, and have to write that paper.

So, tired from everything, we all just sat there in her garden/living/whatever room for a long time (maybe about 45 minutes), in total and complete silence. It wasn't awkward, or that faux-peaceful silence that occurs during prayers, but just a natural, peaceful silence spent with the people I cared about the most.
