some words for the end of the week...

it's friday, thank god.  made it through another crazy week. yellow tulips and finally sun. not sure i
should pack the wool socks away just yet.  scored red sox tickets for the coming week.  long dinner with an old friend. up at 4am to see the "wedding".  coffee and more coffee.  bought my tiara for tonights party.   hope i can stay awake. welcomed molly into the world. so sweet. jeans because it's friday. happy because it's the weekend. thankful because i should be.

life is made of moments...

small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement...
"a couple of hundred years ago, benjamin franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. this is the man who discovered electricity. you think more people would listen to what he had to say. i don't know why we put things off, but if i had to guess, i'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? what if you're making a mistake you can't undo? the early bird catches the worm. a stitch in time saves nine. he who hesitates is lost. we can't pretend we hadn't been told. we've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. we have to make our own mistakes. we have to learn our own lessons. we have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. until we finally understand for ourselves what benjamin franklin really meant. that knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying." ♥ -Greys Anatomy

dear rain, please go away...

i opened my eyes
and looked up at the rain,
and it dripped in my head
and flowed into my brain,
and all that i hear as i lie in my bed
is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.
i step very softly,
i walk very slow,
i can't do a handstand--
i might overflow,
so pardon the wild crazy thing i just said--
i'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

will be gone from this space for a bit...

just thinking... and dreaming... xoxo


the hardest thing to learn in life is
which bridge to cross and which bridge
to burn...
