Sun rising on my street...

The Drowners (Demo) - Suede

Thanks to Lightning in a Bottle for posting about her love of the band Suede. I remember all of the ridiculous hours I spent poring through Melody Maker and NME at the local record store in East Lansing, Michigan, in the fall of '92. I wanted to know everything about all of this great new music. I'd heard a Morrissey interview where he namechecked Suede. The Drowners was their only single at the time. I bought it, and listened constantly. The wait for the album was awful. I remember the record store got a demo tape of it a week before the CD came out. The guys who worked there tossed it to me because they knew how much I was anticipating it.

I miss being that excited about new music. Or anything, for that matter. They say that patience is a virtue, but sometimes, it's nice to relish the pain of longing.

On Friday morning, I woke up with time to get to the marsh before the sun crested the horizon. I wasn't patient enough (hunger struck) to wait around for the big yellow ball, but I took a handful of shots of the morning twilight before I left.

I like this time of day...things are visible, and yet the streetlights are still on...

Have you done something new with your hair? No? Well, it looks good.
