i've got this burning feeling in my stomach.
i know it's not from my hangover
or the cheese in my salad.
i feel it when i see something i don't have.
the women in the shop with their daughters.
the new mothers who wish they had they're mums near by.
it's for everything that i wish i had but can never get.
maybe that's why i like to shop.
i can buy and buy but it will never fit me like you did.

i remember when you made me my cat woman costume,
my cocktail dress for your friends party.
you let me dress up and model for you every time you took out your camera.
tonight I'm dressing up as a bird.
I got all your feathers.
I hope you can see mine.

I didn't know my own strength.

This week started with a bang.
Last night I was taking Flynn home from our potluck and on our way we saw fireworks bursting through the sky line of Boston.
I turned to Flynn and asked if she wanted to find them...
We turned onto the Southie bridge and
There were already several cars pulled over with their hazards on.
The guy in front of us jumped out of his car and gave us a big smile and we followed suit.

We got out and ran across the road, the police told us it was for a wedding at the Intercontinental. We all stood and stared at the sky as bursts of color shot up from a boat in the harbor and exploded above us.

So. Perfect.

Change moves in spirals, not circles. For example, the sun goes up and then it goes down. But everytime that happens, what do you get? You get a new day. You get a new one. When you breathe, you inhale and you exhale, but every single time that you do that you're a little bit different then the one before. We're always changing. And its important to know that there are some changes you can't control and that there are others you can.

when it all comes down to it
and the pressure's on for life
how do you keep skanking through the darkness to the light
how do you ride it through
like its your nature to.

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot.
In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you. -Oscar Wilde-

The tide is high.

Feeling a mixture of things.
Maybe it's the weather from warm to cold.
I've been starting to practice meditation.
Starting my first one today on the train.
Enjoy your weekend!

Pom Inspiration.

One month from now.

I seem to remember the little things.
your hands
that smile
the mole on your neck
the tattoo of tweety you always wanted
your european stories

I'm starting to look like you.
Your hands are now mine.
I'm seeing the world you always told me about.
I just wish you were here to share it with me.

You always reveal yourself somewhere in the midst of my days.
Don't worry I haven't forgotten you.

Feeling a lot of movement right now.
Wish I had the words for the women I re-connected with tonight.
Here's to cozy nooks with beautiful people on rainy nights.
