Torn Up Pages

February 26, 2007

It’s been a long time since ive written a blog. Sorry.

This weekend has been fun. The whole of the week has been a bit crazy, and it felt good to kind of waste the weekend away dancing, going to concerts, flea marketing and going to the movies.

It felt nice.

My dad wants to do a Jam session with me. I am excited.
I got the Empire Records soundtrack for a dollar.

I love reading comics just as much as when I was a kid. Each frame holds so much detail. It’s just really fun to see how they drew a tree, or some crazy fight scene.

Im a geek.

I wish I had more time. I wish I could just slow the world down enough for me to do all the things I want to.

Draw beautiful pictures, paint sights that make my heart heave and flutter.
Cook satisfying foods and sweet treats that cause people to smile and ask for more.
Work out until it hurts, then look in the mirror and feel a little better about myself.
Build a deck, finish a room, or put together a bookshelf, then fill up the bookshelf with books I have never read and read all of them.

There are so many things I want to say, but words flutter and avoid my thoughts.

Lately I feel like im only half awake. Like something important is blurry and I cant focus on it.
Someone wake me up.

Brash and Hopeful.
Take this, and make it beautiful.
Just with a glance make the whole world warmer and better.
Just with a look cause my knees to tremble and my stomach to flutter.
Stare at me and watch as I fall faster.
Open your mouth and the world will fall silent.
Speak and your words will fill my world.
Tell me you feel the same and I will find heaven.


Hibernating Hearts

February 10, 2007

School has been a kind of difficult lately, and a type of busy. Yes, thats right I just made a joke about design terminology, and almost no one will probably get it.

Lately ive seen people doing alot of thinking. Pondoring this, wondering about that. I wonder sometimes how much time we invest in thinking about things. Its ironic if you think about it, because im thinking about thinking, and spending time thinking about the time we spend thinking.

The snow has been beautiful lately.
The other night I ran around catching snow flakes on my tongue.
The world is covered in a white blanket and everything is quiet.
I like it.
The big snow flakes that sparkle and float down to your heart.
It’s a romantic kind of snow.

Our hearts stay warm because they are filled with hope.

I kind of miss those rays of sunlight, and the warm feeling of it on your cheek. I want to look out my window and see greens and blues.
Morning just doesn’t feel the same without birds chirping a song of growth and newer things.

Soon though, It will all start to thaw and the world will come back to life.

Until then we can keep our rosy cheeks,
Dance in our romantic snow,
Drink from our hot chocolate,
and Lay our angels in the snow.
