There's nothing I'd rather be listening to right now. I've known Trent Franks for a little over 3 years, and his music has always been worth stopping everything and just listening. This song is called Fields, on his EP "Natures". Trent is such an amazing musician, especially for being 16 years old. Listen and enjoy to music he wrote for each part and performed on his own. His older brother told me that he spent months learning drums on his own for this EP. My first memories of him were listening to snippets of pieces on the guitar that he was working on at age 13. Even then I was blown away at his potential and his connection to music.

Question of the blog:
Which song is your favorite on Trent's EP, Natures?

Thomas Newman, Etc.

Thomas Newman as my Pandora radio mix... Climatic to say the least. I want to cry to every song. Story of my life.

You Don't Mean A Thing To Me

You said you didn't want to fade
But they did
And so did I, that day.

Planes, Love Bugs, and The Times

Leaving tomorrow for a little vacation down south.. I'll be gone for about a week, so don't expect elaborate blogs for a little while (although when have I ever been one to write elaborate blogs?). Despite being excited for this trip, I can't help but be more sad that anything. I'm going to miss my Newo Pups so much. This is the longest we've been away from each other! My heart is breaking.

You have a few hours to kill. What do you do while you wait?

Oh, baby girl
It was just you and I together
And for the first time, I felt it
The feeling that this was it..
I've missed it all my life, every time
But now, you're laying in front of me
In your natural state that you love best
I wouldn't quite call it love
Just the satisfaction, that you are here, and so am I. And there's no other place either of us want to be. I've let go of my past, and let you in. You weren't patient. You didn't have to be. You were exactly who you were, and that's all I needed. Baby, you are present in me. You are the present. You are the present I waited so long for.
The bees fly from blossom to blossom. I am present in you.
You have found the best love.

Follow Through

This is why I am proud of myself today:

I am a hard worker, and I am blessed. Thanking God every day for the godparents I had is my joy in life. I put myself through massage school, and have paid for everything on my own and with the help of the money my godparents left me when they passed away. Throughout these past 6 weeks, I have worked while going through school, and put everything in my life aside for this goal of becoming a massage therapist. Today, I passed my final with a 91%, and received my new EarthLite Harmony DX massage table in the mail. I'm not a very proud person, but today I can't help but smile at the amazing things I have done for myself. I have followed my dream through, I have worked my ass off to afford everything, and pained through tendinitis in both hands to receive my certificate. I am proud of myself today, and I know I deserve it. I have learned so much, and intend to keep learning and growing and getting better at what I love to do. I am so happy.

Puppy Scratches

Newo scratched her chin and was bleeding. And no I did not cry like an overemotional mother..

The Opposite Side Of The Couch

Image Via WeHeartIt

Months later from it all
Our lives lived from here to there
You, life, continuously amaze me
Confuse my mind
Throw unexpected opportunities
My life is not my own
Sit quietly, sip my drink
Thank God she's in between us
What could I compare it to
The moment before a smile
Sun shining behind the pines
A natural curve
Sudden shifts from you
Bittersweet neutral energy
Know I always sent you the best
I forgive you.

New Song

The sun moves toward the west
And we spend its last hour in our back yard. I lay in a hammock by myself, and watch the dogs as they play with each other around me. My skin feels as if it is glowing. The sun shines on my face and I feel a warmth that rarely comes to me anymore. I am at peace, I feel a serenity come over me, and I am not so alone. Rocked back and forth as if I was a baby once again, birds sing a new song high in the trees. Autumn is among us, and I feel it in the cold brick on my feet, the smell of trees and the sight of early evenings. My mouth does not open often, and my vocabulary is small, but I am busy with my thoughts and in my hands. I am not so alone.
I am not so alone.

Question of the blog:
Where have you found peace?


Three dogs lay around me, I am less alone.

I am looking forward to this weekend. First time in a long time. I have plans. With friends. At airports & bars. On the massage table & different cities. At work & after work. Thank you, God. Thank you for teaching me patience.
