john coltrane’s lush life is playing on 89.9 fm (ok fine, wkcr) right now
my windows are open and it’s cooler today and also a lil breezy so the sheer curtains are billowing gently. these windows are east facing (mostly) so when the sun sets it feels like a surprise every time because it’s so quick
ugh, i still can’t believe i lost to my opponent today (both of us ~3.75 ntrp) >:( aside from the mental game jostling about, so many of the points i lost were because of double faults and other unforced errors. insane how tennis is a pretty easy barometer to check where i’m at both physically and mentally. but maybe that’s just any physical activity that requires some thinking but make it competitive.
i love all my winners though. i love you super fast forehand down the line, i love you flat serve (ace) that hit the corner of the ad out service line, i love you sharply angled volley at the net, smooch smooch smooch
i washed the dishes earlier. i still need to clean my oven, the broiler, the kitchen windows, the bathroom tiles, the bathroom lower cabinet, on and on and on
now john coltrane is singing you are too beautiful. i didn’t know that he only has one vocal album and that that was with johnny hartman
