Break Away



"Every now and then go away and have a little relaxation.
To remain constantly at work will diminish your judgment.
Go some distance away, because work will be in perspective
and a lack of harmony is more readily seen."
-DaVinci

'free - free!'
So, it's been months since I've had two consecutive days off work!
I'm calling my Thursday and Friday's off:
Midst-Weekbreak!

It's still far from the real weekend
(when all my fellow friends hang out)
but it's something - a step.

Muscle Memory

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.
No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.
The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.
This is the day your life really begins."-moewad

Ancient Oak

Ancient Oak, Martha’s Vineyard 1968 (from Vintage  Photographs)

there's a steady breeze. you're protected by a wall of sweet grass.
I find my way to your branches.
Each footing rests on a different decade.
Resting over the twists and turns, the knots, the abrasions, the growth.
The weight of your Ancient branches coddle my soul.
Slipping into a daydream -
the lifetimes you've lived, the seasons, the souls you've encountered.

Here is where I feel secure in the World.
You're our Roots.

Fuel the Soul

"To him music…was an integral part of your very existence, as vital as breathing or eating. To live a day without music was an unthinkable omission, to live a day without Bach a transgression that bordered on blasphemy."

Oh, my heart aches!
I remember this day so vividly.
These fine gentlemen are my friends.
Emos (the one with the glasses) your brilliant subtleties....
I'm all-full-belly-laughter.

Single Tear for the Past

depressingly-awesome:  suicidaldtendencies:watchmevanish:urticaria:     I wanted some time alone, I needed, most of the time, to be alone  and now I’m full time alone.

It's just one of those crummy days, when everything is off.
I blame the restless nights sleep.

I'll spare you the piss details, that we all go through.

Summer Solstice



My alarm sounded at 7am - work summons.
while in the auto-morn-routine, I suddenly remembered...
It's my birthday!

It's a tradition in my family to blare The Beatles song birthday,
while bringing you breakfast in bed. (at the crack ass of dawn)
No matter where I am, or how far I am away from family -
The Song will always await!

Me - 7:12am:
I would like you to dance! take a cha-cha-cha-chance!

Today included:
Talks and Coffee with co-workers, then later surprised with
DELECTABLE cupcakes. I work with some wonderful gals.

After work - Mexican food, Margaritas, and Toy Story 3 (feel good movie of the year)
Now, reading a bunch of lovely birthday wishes from dear ones near and far.

A new wave is crashing in, a path will be unfolded, a change in the wind.
This is the year - I feel it in me bones.

Night, the Beloved

Weegee, “Audience Palace Theater”  (All Things Amazing)

To the Table

I'm still all in a mental fluster.
Since living in my new space, I've been questioning
certain aspects of my Life.
I'm feeling a major change of course coming on...
something is going somewhere.
This morning, I feel ready.
Ready to take any spare time and turn in into self energy.
My line in Life.

I'll be honest -
I'm nervous, fearful, unsure, apprehensive, panicked about all this because
I have no fucking clue where to even start.

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe


Mental Note


“There is in the body a current of energy,
affection and intelligence, which guides,
maintains and energizes the body.
Discover that current and stay with it.”

All Things Amazing reminds us to, “Do  Summer.”

"It soared, a bird, it held its flight, a swift pure cry, soar silver orb it leaped serene, speeding, sustained, to come, don’t spin it out too long long breath he breath long life, soaring high, high resplendent, aflame, crowned, high in the effulgence symbolistic, high, of the ethereal bosom, high, of the high vast irradiation everywhere all soaring all around about the all, the endlessnessnessness"

Grain of Salt

(via sophisticated-simplicities)

“It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are stretched by the pull of opposites — opposite bents, tastes, yearnings, loyalties.
Where there is no polarity, where energies flow smoothly in one direction,
there will be much doing but no music.”

"She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on… far out to sea and alone; she always had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day."
