…people need to create their own chances. sweep a gal off her feet will you? you don’t know what someone’s thinking until you ask. so ASK damnit lol

One day, you’ll ask me to speak of a truth. to explain what is unexplained. & if I falter or fail on this day, know there is an answer, my child, a sacred imperishable truth, but one you may never hope to find alone. Chance meeting your perfect other, your perfect opposite – your protector and endangerer. Chance embarking with this other on the greatest of journeys – a search for truths fugitive and imponderable. If one day this chance may befall you, do not fail or falter to seize it. The truths are out there. & if one day you should behold a miracle, as I have in you, you will learn the truth is not found in science, or on some unseen plane, but by looking into your own heart. & in that moment you will be blessed – and stricken. For the truest truths, are what hold us together, or keep us painfully, desperately apart.

“oh dear, all those words again,” thought milo as he climbed into the wagon with tock & the cabinet members. “how are you going to make it move? it doesn’t have a–”

“be very quiet,” advised the duke, “for it goes without saying.”

10 more things i bet you didn’t know, or need to: too bad. you already looked!

Posted by sailorstakewarning on June 23, 2010

1. i like rainy days. they’re an excuse to snuggle up on the couch & watch a movie

2. i’m pretty sure the eyelashes on my left eye are shorter than the ones on my right eye. no joke.

3. my favorite colors rotate depending on my mood

4. i rescued a sparrow monday. it had flown into the lobby, confused by the big windows. i had to scoop him up to get him out the door & he just fit in my hand.

5. i’ll eat most vegetables raw, but don’t like a lot of them cooked.

6. broccoli is my favorite vegetable. i’ll eat it pretty much any way

7. i absolutely hate milk. i think it’s disgusting. but i love ice cream & cheese & yogurt.

8. i believe in gemstone therapy, but i also believe that your belief in it makes a lot of difference in regards to its benefits

9. i often like bands when they’re local but if they get big & go mainstream i’ll stop listening to them.

10. it’s pretty unlikely i’ll ever cut my hair again.

***edit as of 12:43 am: i’m happy the way i am. & while there are things i want, i am a package deal. take me as i am or watch me as i go. seeee ya!

happy summer solstice! it is the beginning of midsummer; the longest day of the year & a time when all of nature is in balance together. it’s like a collective holding of breath. (midsummer is officially marked between now & june 24th.) I have to work a long day today (OT, yippee!) so tonight i’ll light a candle in thanks for the sun. i’m glad it’s still shinin’! Today is a day to make your personal feelings a priority & to know them know. wear your heart on your sleeve; tell someone you love them; hug a friend extra tight. this morning, sun worshippers gathered at stonehenge to give thanks to the sun & call it down to them. someday i plan on seeing that – it’s such a mass gathering of folks who still celebrate the old ways, how could you fail to be swept up in it?

i’m eating valdosta pecans, which are awesome. i actually am able to help people work some of the critical directory stuff today. i scored a couple hours of overtime. i have lemon yogurt, two people told me my hair looked nice & jenn gave me a book to read to my mini muffin. (the spider & the fly). it’s only 11, how much better can the day get? thank you, sun! as far as making my heart known; well, i thought i had made it obvious but clearly obvious to me is not so much to others. well the dang thing’s on my sleeve today. with bells& whistles. are you looking?

breathe, breathe in the air
don’t be afraid to care
leave but don’t leave me
look around & chose your own ground
for long you live & high you fly
& smiles you’ll give & tears you’ll cry
& all you touch & all you see
is all your life will ever be
run, run rabbit run
dig that hole, forget the sun,
& when at last the work is done
don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one
for long you live & high you fly
but only if you ride the tide
& balanced on the biggest wave
you race toward an early grave.

tomorrow is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year & the beginning of midsummer (6/24/10). too bad people don’t celebrate like they used to; someone should have a big bonfire to mark this event! i’ll just light a candle if need be 😉

took dad out for breakfast; then we ran a few errands. now i’m home & super hot & trying to clean up my place a little. maybe rearrange some furniture…i have a horror movie to watch & it’s too dang hot for dog & i to be anywhere except maybe at the beach. i actually wish we’d get a good thunderstorm, to balance the air out a little. i looooove good boomers. the kind that shake the walls & rattle the floors. especially if i’m watching a horror movie lol. i have a new book on the black plague that i want to look at & i am eyeballing a couple things at pier one. someday i’ll have my own whole house to decorate.

“…nature never repeats herself & the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another.”

i saw this happening, but was powerless to stop it. & why should i? i can’t dictate another human’s free will.  i wouldn’t want to. i’m glad now i’m not that kind of person who manipulates, because regardless of the outcome, i can say it happened because it was meant to happen.

to hand crafted beers made in local breweries
to yoga, to yogurt, to rice and beans and cheese
to leather, to dildos to curry vindaloo
to huevos rancheros and Maya Angelou

emotion, devotion, to causing a commotion
creation, vacation, mucho masturbation

compassion, to fashion, to passion when it’s new
to Sontag, to Sondheim, to anything taboo

Ginsberg, Dylan, Cunningham and Cage
Lenny Bruce, Langston Hughes, to the stage
to Uta, to Buddha, Pablo Neruda, too,
