So once again, Friday has come and I become undone.
The weeks worth of sick feeling has left me exhausted.
I would be happy to crawl into bed and sleep a week.
But tonight is the birthday party of someone very special.
So I will forgo any ill feelings because I love my friends more.
Someone in the work kitchen has made something with alot of stink.
It is too early to smell that kind of smell.
The wind is out, the sun is not.
I am making notes of things to do.
I am talking about nothing now so I can not focus on the pit in my stomach.

Have a good weekend. I mean it, no sarcasim.

light as a feather.
we need to stick together.
Birds of a feather.
we are better off together.
You are my feather.
we need to stick together.
You and I.



the last picture of Sasha describes how I feel most of the time.

Wake up, Fall asleep
whatever you need to do to find your peace.
The sun is out, the wind is cold
When will I stop doing what I am told
The flowers the fall, they float and die
Sometimes all you do is make me cry.

Abbey Lee Kershaw

Pretty sure this is my next hair cut. 
Growing out short hair is hell. 
So I think it is best to just cut it. 

At least for the summer..






Just trying to balance.

Monday blues. Never gets old, does it.

This week has been a long one, has it not?

Frought with ups and downs, highs and lows.

You ever have one of those days that really gets to you? 

What do you do after that.
Tell me, what do you do?

Miss seeing her face.

Gemma Ward.


I loved the fire red hair against the muted tones of everything else.

How do people come up with the ideas to make the most amazing editorals.

I think though, my apprecitation grew once I watched the September Issue. Anna Wintour, yes she is very cool, but Grace Coddington, you take the cake. She styled almost the entire Septmeber Issue of Vogue. Her editorials where so breathtaking. Like where she gets her ideas are just such a wonder. Anna said it best, noone can do it like her.

Check through American Vogue soon. Grace is the Creative Director, look for her work, you will not be sorry.


So, so pretty.


I dig her style so much.

It is so beautiful out today. Warm with a slight breeze. Makes me feel warm inside too. Such a treat on days like this.

You never know if you have made the right decision until you make it.


But true.

Do you ever find the things that wear you out the most, is emotion? More than running, more than cleaning, more then most things.
When you heart is not at rest, rarely anything else is either.

I guess that is where I reside at the moment. Trying to find that right place. The right balance. So that the rest of you life can fall into place and you can finally rest. Like really rest. Not just close you eyes and fall asleep, but being able to lie awake, in peace.
That is the world I one day want to live in. Not these short visits that I take every now and again. But a real peaceful rest.

I know it will come one day and make all this worry and aches go away, but what do you do in the meantime? Where do you find your peace. When can you finally rest.

I guess that is an answer we all kinda wonder about. Or at least I know I do.

Until then.
Shine on Baby.
shine on.

79 is a great number don't you think? or a great year? 
Some of my favorite people were born in 79', and then the rest of my favorite people came to be in the 80's.
But since they are so great, I will look past that.

 I think that the times in your life when you think are the most lost, are the times when you are really just beginning to find yourself.

Not all who wander, are lost.

Just sayin'
