what if you could slow down time enough to embroider the sunset?
that would probably be marvelous.

this is very nice of course

"I said, I want to tell you something. She said, you can tell me tomorrow. I had never told her how much I loved her. She was my sister. We slept in the same bed. There was never a right time to say it. It was always unnecessary. I thought about waking her. But it was unnecessary. There would be other nights. And how can you say I love you to someone you love? I rolled onto my side and fell asleep next to her. Here is the point of everything I have been trying to tell you, Oskar. It's always necessary. I love you."  j.s. foer

the headstone at the cemetery today said:
"she made the world more beautiful."

two things

1) i like this guy very very much
2) these ladies are very beautiful.  and i intend to see them someday wherever they are but especially if i can find them in vietnam.  because that's where i want to go the very most of all at this moment in time.

these things are good in my life right now

1. a house full of treasures to fulfill my creative endeavors
2. the way my dog tilts his head at me and lifts up his ears like he has a question
3. kind words
4. daily walks with my mother
5. playing catch during outdoor fun time with seth
6. breezes through open windows
7. throwing things away, giving things away, and nice boxes in which to keep the rest
8. making do with what i have
9. mowing the lawn for my father
10. promises to write letters
11. trees are dancing in narnia right now
12. new beginnings of days
13. sitting by a little stream and listening
14. having time.

i finished my dress!

and i am quite happy with it.
but it took much longer than it should have
and i had to take out way more seams than i should have had to
reading patterns can be a bitch.

speaking of making dresses
this is one of the nicest things sam beam has ever sang:
"love is a dress you made long to hide your knees."

good for what ails you

sitting in the sun
cures every upset bone in my body.

also.  look what my friend kelly found in spain.  little children on a rope wearing matching jackets and smelling flowers.  i can't get over how much i like this.
