Reeds in the Wind

Dear You,
Take comfort. Yours will be the name of future generations, and the love that flows from your mouth like billows of sweet hymns will resound on and on.

Off In The Night While You Live It Up I Am Off To Sleep

Windows are open as the night time sails in a breeze, fresh and cooled from the day. I am alone, and I sit with contentment and peace as I contemplate the monumental day I just went through. A day of accomplishments, of learning, of overcoming pain. Through it all, his waves of euphoria grace me and I feel happy. I can be alone, and smile.
Just then, a car drives by. Headlights on, windows down, we are in sync with each other, like the rest of the micro-cosmos I live in. In all of my independence, I hear a song familiar to my ears, to my heart, and there is a knocking on the door..

You know that I could use somebody,
someone like you.
someone like you.


I'll be doing my best, and I'll see you soon.

Question of the blog:
The wind is blowing. The sun has gone to bed, but the moon stays up with you. As this song wraps you in its arms, and comfort fills the heart inside of you, your thoughts are here.
What are your thoughts?
Free association here.

Just Far Enough To Make You Miss Me

At least there's the comfort of knowing,
you miss me just as much as I miss you.

All The Way Down

I am left wandering
I am left wondering

faint white figures paint my sleep

Never Meant To Get This Far From Shore

The page in Theodore Roosevelt's diary, the day where both his mother and wife died within hours of each other.

Short breaths, quick and sharp,
It frustrates you, but I can't slow down
My lungs exhausted, petrified,
I'm not ready to leave this town.

But time sends me forward now
And southbound I am traveling
To what I thought I knew as home,
Though that idea is unraveling.

The body I possess is suffering,
With pain behind the green eyes
Thoughts race through my young mind,
That what was new is now what dies.

A family, broken and at the end,
Or what I pray is just a phase
I look for ways to come back home,
And be in your arms, like better days.

Question of the blog:
Do you write in any type of journal or diary?

Off To A SLO Start

Bare feet, day and night.
Although there's pain in my chest, I wish you the best.
Best friends, sand dunes, 4 am, all of the lights.
Such a great weekend, with some of my favorite people. Adventures and good food and being together. True love.

when girls know they are hot, it makes them less hot.


Last day at home, and day 4 of this migraine that is eating my brain. Went to the chiropractor and cried like a baby for half the appointment because it hurt so bad. Finally starting to pack, have yet to shower, dinner at 6. Excited for this adventure back down to SD, but my head hurts so much I worry that I won't enjoy my time. No need to hope, I am positive we will have a great time in San Luis, like always. Then down the coast, through LA, and probably be in San Diego on Monday. Jillian is staying with me for 2 1/2 weeks, we are buying disposable cameras, playing at the beach, traveling to new places, and I am so glad for the time we will spend together. Bittersweet days. Now migraine, please go away so I can be productive and excited.

Rules Of A Gentleman

Men with manners. What could be better in this world? In my life, I have met a few fine specimen that will forever raise my standards on how gentlemen should be a gentlemen. Call me old fashioned, and I will say thank you. I refuse to let go of my British roots, nor will I give up the idea that I will be a badass hostess at bangin' dinner parties when I am older. I like when men pull out my chair at dinner, I like when men smoke cigars in suits, I especially like it when they treat me like a lady. And as a lady, I like to dress up nicely, take notice and care on my significant other's needs, and make lovely food.
Class is what class is built on. Mmm, tradition. I love you.

Question of the blog:
What do you especially like in a personality of the opposite sex?

Thursday, January 13, 2011


This invisible monster is taking over my mind, rotting my being from the inside. Taking everything, leaving nothing but the faint memory that I once had something. Her name will drive me mad. She is destroying everything in her path, and I am standing like a deer in the headlights as she moves towards me.

Mixture of Reds

No One Compares To You

Going to stay busy today, with car tires, South Pine Cafe, laundry, and packing. I can't believe I go back to school on Saturday. Today, I appreciate having the incredible amount of freedom my parents give me. I can come and go and still feel as welcome as ever. I am grateful that I can go back to school early, and spend some time adventuring before I start classes again. Excited to spend some time in San Luis Obispo, excited to have Jillian with me for a couple of weeks. Appreciative.

Question of the blog:
Who are you thankful for?

Momentary Completion

That's all this really is, anyway. A place for people to wander and search for the things they miss. Then they stare longingly at what they don't have and for a moment, they feel whole again. But just for a moment.


Too much to handle today.

Peter Pan Days

Never, Never Land!
I see it now. We're actually growing up.

My baby girl sits across the room
Big heart, open arms, bright eyes
Letting another one go for now
To heal the sick, pray, baptize

Repeating verses in her head
Remember to breath, be okay
But she is from New Hampshire
And has more strength than a brand new day

I recall the days she and I spent
Parks and trees and mountain air
Give yourself the road to heal
And let the wind blow through your hair

And sing.

When:2011 What:Love

I love my home. This was on a billboard in my town.

Tattoos, Sisters, and Resolutions.

Kelly, getting her Sims tattoo on her birthday

It's been a great couple of days. I am feeling very motivated and happy about the way 2011 is coming along.. Okay so we're 8 days in but nevertheless, I have a positive outlook and that's good enough for me.

Some good news to pass on to you.
1. My blog has been redesigned by my older sister, Moorea. For those of you who don't know Moorea, she is one of my favorite people and biggest sources of inspiration in this world. Her mind is filled with the most wonderful imagination that she draws, designs, and produces for the world to see. Not only is she a blogger, but she redesigns blogs, and she can redesign yours, too! She also has an Etsy shop where she designs and sells wonderful jewelry that I love.. I have a few of her pieces that I wear all the time. So go on over and check out her great sites, and pick up some lovely new jewelry for yourself!
2. I am piling my New Years Resolutions together.. And there is one I am particularly excited about. To give you the general gist of it, I am going through the year weekly. Each new week, a new adventure. But I need YOUR help in putting this list of 50 things to do for 7 days! More on this resolution in my next blog.

Question of the blog:
1. Do you have siblings?
2. What are your new years resolutions?

Perfectly Normal Human Being

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being?

to die would be an awfully big adventure.

Can't get any plans to follow through. So I think I'll spend today with myself, not bother to look pretty, and listen to new music.

And I Heard The Whole Thing

on a bathroom wall, i wrote
i'd rather argue with you than be with someone else.

South Lake

Friends, late nights, dr. pepper, card games, sledding, fireplace, street-wide celebration, snow.
Happy new years.
