we, my friends, danced tonight. =]
owl city is the new antidepressant.
do itttttt.

do you ever think that you haven't really genuinely smiled in a while? likes its been casual, fake, everyday smiles? I don't think it's been THAT long for me, i know it hasn't. but maybe a couple of days. and today i had some genuine smiles despite my 5:30 am workday. and shakin it to owl city live in sf is just the cherry on top. you can't listen to em and not feel lighter. life is good. even when you think it's not. it's good. and getting better. i left tonight with a shirt that reads, "i'm a hoot". i can't wait to wear it.

so on the car ride home, before i fell asleep because i am a grandma, i wrote a poem in my head. and i started to like it, so i wanted to write it, and i thought of my texts, so i saved it in a folder on my phone. but i couldn't remember the beginning. i'm tired now.

shadowed stars
the strain, it binds. chokes.
i exhale it away, lighter my lungs expand.
we thought i drew you in love, but still im breathing
the signs are still smearing by
i am awake, but i slept on your imprint today
it felt ok too
he said, the moon is out for you
for you, darling, the city stays lit.
im compact in the brick town
the lines are straight, then dashed.
so i dance in and out of them.
my open palms tan with moonlight
one for one, my noise fades away.
color me darker, never been so light

dear blog

i will never abandon you again.

it's like i've touched off the face of the earth.
a lot of commotion going on. is that spelled correctly?
either way, life is still wonderful people.
i've been intensely busy with 2 jobs, photos to work my magic on, and attempting to stay in shape. meh.

i am greatly blessed. and i wish to share my thoughts i had while meditating on a recent trip i took to utah. it was wonderful to have some time to myself. i picked up my pen and finally opened my journal again. and these are the things that make me happy. well i must read my scriptures and sleep. there is a pain in my right shoulder. and i look over and see my handsome boyfriend stare at the tv.

i promise to update you soon.
for now images must replace my words.
