|2 poems by e.e. cummings.
unlove's the heavenless hell and homeless home
of knowledgeable shadows (quick to seize
each nothing which all soulless wraiths proclaim
substance; all heartless spectres, happiness)
lovers alone wear sunlight. the whole truth
not hid by matter; not by mind revealed
(more than all dying life, all living death)
and never which has been or will be told
sings only- and all lovers are the song.
Here (only here) is freedom: always here
no then of winter equals now of spring;
but april's day transcends november's year
(eternity being so sans until
twice i have lived forever in a smile)
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has meant
and whatever a son will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret, nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart ( i carry it in my heart)

"It's no use
I cannot finish my weaving.
You may blame Aphrodite
soft as she is
she has almost
killed me with
love for that boy."
-Sappho, as translated by Mary Barnard

So I've been looking around online at various artist's websites, trying to gain some inspiration for my own. Most of these are either people from my graduating class at Kendall or teachers (for lack of a better place to begin)...Let's just say I'd kind of like to curl up in a blanket and never come out now. Current Mood: slacker

|"...I'm old now, but then, so are you."
I'm 30 today.
Went to see my grandmother, my last remaining grandparent. It's difficult to see someone so strong deteriorate, in strange little unpredictable ways. It's difficult to watch my father and aunt taking turns trying not to cry.
They moved her into an "assisted living facility" this week. I guess it's good because she definitely needs taking care of. She seems to be taking everything with a grain of salt, though. Like now that she's hanging out with a bunch of other old people, she notices how often everyone repeats their questions, and that you can have the same conversation with somebody every day and it can still seem new. "How long have you been here?" seems to be a frequently asked question. Like the old people's equivalent of how long have you been sober or something.
I'm not really sure what else to say. There's a lot going on, like I quit my stupid job and shit. But I guess that can be saved for another day. If you read this far, I'd like to invite you to my birthday party, it's at the WAB in Ferndale at like 9 or so. Hope to see you then.

"Because I left the chip clip off" in the kitchen is not an adequate reason for "Why we have rodents in the attic".
Maybe you should try "because you left your ready made Ginger Bread House in the attic".
Seriously. There are open packages of M&M's up there, bch.

Carson McCullers' "the Heart is a Lonely Hunter" is topping my good books list this year. I like books about yearning, I guess. There's a lot to do with missed communications and potential in there too. It is definitely sad, but a good read.

It's been a while since I've actually WRITTEN in here rather than live vicariously through the writings of others.
Mostly it's because I never think I have anything to talk about or say; I tend to fall into routines and that's my life for a while. Work, home, sleep, and whatever else fills my time between those three things.
But there's been a couple of changes, so for the record:
Work= The Natural Food Patch, an organic grocery store in Ferndale, MI. I can ride my bike there. This is a nice perk.
Work 2.0= Mountain Jack's Steakhouse. Part time-server. I am fully aware of the irony of being a vegetarian who works in a steakhouse. Interestingly (to me anyway) the person who got me the job there is also a vegetarian.
Sleep= not enough.
...and too much tv.
So that's what's going on.

for the past couple of days, i've been looking for some new music to listen to, both while hanging out in my sweet pad and for running. i've found a few good songs, but no albums and not enough to make a good mix cd...
anyone have a good "running" mix? or anything new you're listening to that just blows your mind? (ryan haines, don't hold out on me : )
i'm willing to trade if you are.

It is easy for me to forget that the work of five minutes will sometimes result in an hour or two of unbridled happiness.
Today, I have remembered.

So really, what you're saying is....There's no way to get the original version of the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD??
I find that completely ridiculous.
I abhor (the latter half) of your vision.
