back to scheduled programming

3-22 day 5-1

and now a commercial break from clothes and painting

I present you with FOOD:

pasta 1
pasta 2
pasta 3
pasta 4

henceforth, I will never ever diss food photographers again. there is an art to it, it turns out.

Hopefully I'll improve on my next outing. meanwhile, I'll enjoy my full stomach and an impulse purchase:

in my defense, I'd wandered into the new fair trade store downtown and couldn't resist it. for only $4! spare change in my wallet after doing a week's shopping. and come on - did you really think I could stop talking about clothes (a subset anyway: accessories) for one post? :P

You love the people that love you

3-22 day 4-1

you hear the music they move to
you give your ode to the fall through
but you don't know you don't know you don't know you don't know

this is to a girl who got into my head with all the pretty things she did



15 minutes' work while waiting for the Amherst chat room to load. They really need to get a better app/server/something. why in the world did it take 15 min to load?!

Control yourself, take only what you need from them

3-22 day 3-1

3-22 day 3-2
actual is not this blue. more gray.

the first star you see may not be a star

3-22 day 2-1

and an hour and a few later:
3-22 day 2-2
(batteries recharged)

And in a moment they had faded from sight as the road dipped, turned, and headed for home.

3-22 day 1-1

Me too

In my fitness walking class--

Boy in cargo shorts to boy in skinny jeans: I wouldn't be surprised if you were gay.
Boy in skinny jeans: I would.

spoon ring

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

I see the steeple and the spire and a sunset, deep and red, phoenix and fireflies.

variations on a theme.

So when the birds fly south
I'll reach up and hold their tails
Pull up and out of here
And bridle the autumn gales

Look up. Look up! The stars!

The day our house collapsed
I went down stream.
I followed the swans
Like i follow my dreams.

oh! i was living on borrowed time in a
borrowed house for a borrowed crime.
in need of help i came to your door.
saw the spike of the railings from
the 28/3rd floor.
"build your castle, stop collecting stones
and the river bed shall not be your home

To the lighthouse my friend!
I bless your words and education
To the lighthouse my friend.
just go! just go!
To the lighthouse my friend.
I am sorry that you came to find
"great great minds
against themselves conspire

now the bombs drop around our feet,
do we throw them back
or bow and greet them
everyone now is so terrified
of the glowing dark
and those orange skies.

sing it:
"build your castle, stop throwing stones
cause those fire birds are
coming down on our homes"

To the lighthouse my friends
it cannot even be a question
To the lighthouse my friends
we must go, we must go
