You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.
-Neil Young-

Big Sky

She needs wide open spaces
Room to make her big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes

Sing With Me

"Sing with me, sing for the year
sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
sing with me, if it's just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away"

My first crème brûlée. I had no idea what I was missing!

Thanks to my <3 for a nice dinner.

One Day Premiere

"They spoke very little of their mutual feelings: pretty phrases and warm attentions being probably unnecessary between such tried friends."

Summer Wind

I had the most peaceful 30 minutes this afternoon when I was laying by the pool, just on the edge of sleep.

Hey Girl...

"I like to read - she likes to write,
She likes to sleep - and I like to stay up all night,
My friends say I'm crazy and I agree,
But that's okay cause that the way she likes to be"

Oh, you creep up like the clouds/And you set my soul at ease
Then you let your love abound/And you bring me to my knees
-Fiona Apple-

You drive me crazy
Crazy is alright
With you looking at me
You make me feel high
Every single thing you do to me
Is like I'm drunk
I do my best for you
I do

Sun Shower

I had a nice night catching up with a great friend and even enjoyed the little sun shower when we left the restaurant.

What Matters

I remember when I was little I would wonder why adults got mad at stupid little things, like dirt on your clothes or a messy bedroom. I get it now - you need to take care of your things. I also get that those little things weren't necessarily the thing they were actually mad about. We all have days where things build and build and one little mishap can push us over the edge. But at the same time, I think my little child brain had a point. In the whole of life, what do those little things mean? Will you look back five years from now and think "Gee, I wish I didn't get spaghetti sauce on that white top!" or "I can't believe I had to sit in all that traffic that one day." I highly doubt it. You will forget about it. So why dwell on it now? Think about the things that WILL matter five years from now. Think about the people who will matter. Think like this little kid, riding her bike, worried about nothing but smiling and steering in the right direction.

"Where can we live but days?"

You buy it in the grocery store on impulse.
It sits on your bookshelf for months.
You see it in a train station.
You see it on Facebook.
You pick it up.
You put it down.
Things change.
Bonds are formed.
You hear those words again.
Finally it hits you.
It's just a small sentence.
But it means so much.
One day...
