Traffic World

"The breeze from the trees made me feel alive," he said almost dreamily. He had spent the summer alone in the cold mountains with the bears and was longing to be back in that world. "I would sit on a rock for hours as the animals came and went, deciding whether or not they would accept me into their universe. They usually let me in," he sighed.

"I open my windows when I'm stuck in traffic so I can feel closer to people," she replied. "It makes me feel comforted."

He wondered if there was a similarity to their desires and continued eating his soup.

Beautiful Day

Woke up to a cool breeze drifting through my windows. Hiding from the chill under my thick blanket felt wonderfully cozy, though I knew I had to wake up. Redeeming quality of having to wake up early – it’s Friday. Ahhh. At long last.

Had a great drive to work, listening to Polyphonic Spree (can’t not smile when listening to that) and catching an interview with a German filmmaker Werner Herzog, quite an interesting guy, who has a new film about a man who lives up in Alaska with the grizzlies. He enjoys living with grizzlies to living in the world of people and the animals have his life meaning and purpose. Will have to check that out once it’s released.

Now, drinking a delicious big cup of coffee, listening to Bob Marley, catching up on e-mail and enjoying the fact that I haven’t encountered any computer problems yet. Though it’s still early, it’s a sweet relief.

Enjoy the day. Enjoy the weekend. Enjoy the summer breezes and warm sun. Enjoy the thunderstorms that pound through, dropping luscious rain that makes the earth smell like life and rattles your insides making you feel more alive than usual. Enjoy the company of those who make your life interesting and difficult and fun and exciting.

It's what I am in need of today. Had a ton this morning (had a ton of energy I mean), but it is deteriorating....
Hopefully yoga this evening will help. And maybe ice cream too.
Is Friday almost here?
Mentoring was fun last night. Worked on scrapbook stuff and I think A had lots of fun which is awesome!

In my ears today:
Polly Paulusma - Scissors in My Pocket

Tunnel Vision

Tunnel Vision

Big Mouth

Sometimes I wish I could just leave my mouth shut or sleep so that I'm not talking. Nightmares last night, horrible sleep, bad night last night. Not the best end to a decent weekend. I don't know what I'm doing, where I'm going. Do I need to reconsider everything that I've thought was true about myself and about other people? Am I just overanalyzing everything. Am I just being paranoid? This is a rambling post. I just want this peace and comfort and belonging and security that I always crave and rarely feel. And I want to stop saying things that make me feel regret and guilt. It's such a horrible feeling. I worry that I am just destroying everything good and that it will always be this way. Drama life. I wonder if other animals get lonely?

Private Torture Chamber

Stomach is churning and my eyes want to close.
Regret, guilt, and nerves wrapped in a package of torture.
I sigh to myself again and again – my idea of relaxed breathing?
Would love to curl up and stay inside myself for the next month or two.

Listening to: Beth Orton
In the car - book on tape: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Reading: the paper and Deepsix still... (good book by the way)

Also, start mentoring a new girl today and am feeling extremely nervous and excited. I hope it works out well! Looking forward to it!

From Don't Need a Reason by Beth Orton:

I think I've seen a sign
But its a very fine line
If you want it all
And don't lose track
For upon our backs
There's no weight of wings

When they shine is hard to say
But some things never fade away

We only hurt the ones we love
Why, we don't need a reason
We only give what we think we deserve
And that's something to believe in

So I've been calling angels down to Earth
And I don't need a reason
Calling angels down to Earth
Because I believe we need them

Stuck under the Glass

Realizing the gravity of the situation, considering the fact that they were losing their basketball match for freedom from the Paper Weight, Wallace rested while Erastly debated walking away from it all and resigning at the bottom of the weight.

Pretty day with a gloomy sky and red on my mind. Colors and shadows lingering on my eyes. Feeling so tired today. Hate days like that when my eyes just keep closing and all I can think about is resting my eyes - and it's not even 5:00.

Massage Time

Caught this weekend - beautiful lazy afternoon massage.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
- Benjamin Franklin

I came across this quote and thought that it was an important message to remember at this time in our lives with politics and presidents and the chipping away at our liberties that has been occurring. I'll leave it at that. I think it speaks for itself.
