this hits really hard
I love Michael.
This was the single funniest thing I have ever seen a president do.
I’M STILL LAUGHING.
I will never not reblog this.
Let’s all take a moment to remember that Obama actually fucking did this omg
Why do I like Obama? Because he’s a person.
You stand on Proposal Rock, on the tip of Mustang where you can see most everything. In front of you is the calm, expansive waters of the reservoir. The water is murky and darkens with the setting sun. Before that, just below you, you can make out the quiet highway which connects the two small towns which lay on either side of the lake.
Sagebrush and Sage trees are scattered across the land around you. Each of them leaning west, towards the disappearing sun, as if reaching out to it, hoping to keep it present for a few more precious minutes. The fresh strong smell of the sage hangs thickly in the dry, empty air. Soft red-orange sand lays thickly across the ground. It’s hot to the touch, from many hours spent baking in the hot sun. Some of the fine grains have made their way into your sneakers and you shift uncomfortably, shaking your foot so the sand slides to the toe of your shoe.
The large yellow sun becomes a golden sliver behind the rocky blue mountains, painting the clouds gorgeous shades of crimson, orange and pink with its last rays of light. The lake reflects the sky like a mirror. You study it, watching fish jump to catch bugs out of the air, momentarily breaking the reflection and sending ripples across the reservoir. The water washes up onto the land as the tide wanes, carving history into the large slabs of rock that border the lake on all sides.
As the sun disappears it leaves you with a cool, light breeze making the humid air become slightly more breathable. Then, you are left alone with the silence and your thoughts. As the stars slowly appear they wave a weary, all knowing hello. You wave back, remembering years back to when you used to spend hours out here, at times with friends and other times alone.
This is special place and you realize that you’ve missed it. You have missed it for the very reason you left it so long ago. Its a magical place, you begin to realize; because there is magic everywhere, you just have to know where to find it.
This is one of the most beautiful things tht I’ve ever listened too. And the fact that he left a few tears at the end, makes it even better. I really hope he puts this on the album.
I’m sorry you’re not feeling well
and you’re not up to quite okay
but we know you did your best
try again you’ll surely win today
Yes my friend the world is cold
and we oft find the going tough
you fell down but got back up
for you are made of finer stuff
The world only wants followers
take a number and toe the line
yet you follow a separate path
you’ve got heart, you’ll be fine
