the only thing for certain is that everything changes.
it could be useful to remind ourselves that our basic needs never change:
the need to be seen and appreciated,
the need for nearness and care,
and for a little love.

this is given only through slowness in human relations.
in order to master changes we have to recover slowness,
reflection, and togetherness. there we will find renewal.

Santa baby.

Soooooo I don't need anything for Chrissy, just my friends and family.
I've been reflecting on what a beautiful year it's been.
So grateful for everything and everyone in my life...
BUT if we must go there, I would wish for Santa to give me
...these stellar {skates}.

They remind me of when Jen, my mum and I would skate down
Iron Horse Blvd. Which was a weekly date on the weekends.


She's my sister. Without her, I don't make sense.

this week has been a flash of exhaustion and not being able to maintain momentum.
i don't know if it's the full moon, the eclipse or my body coping with grief.
change is all around me and i think i'm just acclimating to it all.
hopefully this weekend will be the way to recovery.

Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow,
but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.
Leo Tolstoy

one day that has equated to everything the past 14 years of my life and
today it changes its history.

one, happy birthday mum you would have been 59! a tea party like you always had for us would have been for you on this special day. may the memories continue to grow with age. love and miss you so.

two, my grandma, the first princess di, was laid to rest today with a celebratory champagne ceremony to a beautiful long life. I am happy to have witnessed the way in which you aged so gracefully. we will miss you so.

It’s not what you are that holds you back,
it’s what you think you are not.”
Denis Waitley


She spoke words that would melt your in your hands
and she spoke words of wisdom.


Celebrate endings,
for they precede new beginnings.

do ya thang.

Buzzing with excitement, stress and the holidays.
Can't get enough of {this} song
{this} blog
and I am so grateful for everything right now, even the chaos.

What are you grateful for this year?

A person needs a little madness,
or else they never dare cut the rope and be free.

Time is the most mysterious beast.
Somedays there is too much,
other days not enough.
Somedays it is too full,
others too empty.
All the more reason to be present with our lives right here, right now, without fear.

When one door of happiness closes,
another opens;
but often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

Don't ever sell yourself short. Thanks Vick! X

For my part I know nothing with any certainty,
but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

When we're incomplete,
we're always searching for somebody to complete us.
When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship,
we find that we're still unfulfilled,
we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising.

This can go on and on until we admit
that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives,
we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment.
Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise
is to delude ourselves dangerously
and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
Tom Robbins

dancing in the moonlight.

Our individuality is all, all, that we have.
There are those who barter it for security,
those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society,
but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star
is the one who nurtures it and rides it in,

in grace and love and wit,
from peculiar station to peculiar station
along life's bittersweet route.

Tom Robbins,

Being in character last weekend led to the exploration of water and warmth
with great friends these last couple days. It goes to show if you dream big
and play with your inner child, things will find their way to be true.
