You have to go to them sometimes.”

Every moment is a Golden One

'Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.'
-Henry Miller

Rain or Shine




Sitting in the lil'cafe, Rain-a-fallin'.
silent, dark, Townes-a-spinnin'
a latte here, a few americano's there.
these are rare days, and I soak them up.

Mental Note

noiretblanche:  [w]arnemünde_1 (by Roy Brueggemann)

'So many people think that practicing an art is a good way to make a living. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. I’m talking about singing in the shower, I’m talking about dancing to the radio, I’m talking about writing a poem to a friend' -
Kurt Vonnegut

Double Shot



on a coffee note...
unless you have the excuse of being pregnant,
there's nothing more frustrating receiving an order for a
double- decaf espresso

just sayin'

On Heavy Repeat

Sands of Time



All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before,
bugs in amber.
-Kurt Vonnegut

You Lead



the steps could be quite simple.

Spinning



I'll be seeing these Ladies Live tomorrow...
Can't wait.

The Haze



'here is me in what appears to be 1955.'

Yep.
Love this so very much, Sir Jamin!

Mental Note




"If you want anything bad enough, go out and fight for it. Work day and night in order to achieve the goal. Sacrifice your time, your peace, your sleep. Sweat for it, fret for it, plan for it. Lose your terror of God and man for it. Hold fast to the pillars of faith, hope, confidence, stern pertinacity. Defy cold poverty, pain of body and brain. Besiege and beset for it, and you’re bound to win."
- Texas Guinan

Coffering

<span class=

standing in the Pantheon
is like standing at the bottom of a well.
cool, damp, and dark.
when you look upward from within a well,
the intricately carved stone walls draw your eye out to that source of light.
looking upward in the pantheon causes your eye to study in wonderment upon those
simple yet astounding coffers.
that open portal to the sky offers you a longing of hope.
I wish, a dream, a future.
If only you could grow up and out like a wild bean stock.

Regret



I allowed my buddy to chop my hair off a couple days ago.
mind you, he had never cut hair in his life...
my response to that was
'how hard can it be? just chop it off'
so he did.
7 inches fell to the floor.
Now, I'm kicking myself in the ass.

'Oh, this is why I havent had short hair for 10 years!'

who has some magic growing potion?
or maybe I should grow some common sense?

Love Monday

Analog



'In order to know the future it is necessary first to know the present in all its details, as well as to know the past. Today is what it is because yesterday was what it was. And if today is like yesterday, tomorrow will be like today. If you want tomorrow to be different, you must make today different.'
