today i went out to lake bryan with a couple of friends. we planned to throw some barbecue on a grill somewhere but realized we only brought lawn chairs, a jukebox, and a frisbee. it ended up being a good day anyway. being unprepared and unplanned actually made for a better trip. i loved the water calm. the clay on the shores felt like the play-doh we all used to mess with as kids. the sky was pretty crazy today too, really nice sunset over the water. i wouldn't mind having a picnic there someday.
