Quotes before stories

“Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh”


“Never forget me, because if I thought you would, I'd never leave.”

A.A. Milne quotes

Before summer comes, feel like a kid

Kids by MGMT

This song takes me back to this summer at Lollapalooza. I danced with friends and strangers in long expansive clump. Covered in sweat, sunscreen, and our prized 3 day wristbands we stood stomping up and down singing. In the summer, I am reminded to be light. Though I have seen tragedy and stress in my work and personal life during the summer I will always cherish the pre-Summer bliss. The weeks and hours that tick beneath my skin and pulsate before I get the chance to stand with the sun. I do admit there are nights I can't sleep and days I wish to go to bed before ready. Days that catch in my throat like a cold because I have worked hard, have looked in all directions and have no words to decide where to next go. With a change in season and weather I hold onto my summer songs and feel light. Changes are happening. I must believe that I, like the weather move on with the days. Weather that can not often be predicted but trusted with a sundress, dark glasses, or a parasol.

today is only the day in one day at a time
with every day that passes i try to remind myself to see past the cycle of things. with every turn there is newness and muscle memory.

Songs for sweet dreams

if you can't sleep

...dream
Azure Ray
and Fleetwood Mac

Often times we are kept awake by things. Tasks plague us that on a clear head are not so scary, are not so difficult, if we close our eyes and dream. We are insomniacs to our fears, sometimes. But sleep is only one way to let go. Love is another. Try as you might remember to try a little more. You are worthy of these things.

reconnection

Today over hot tea in a quiet coffee house corner, I reconnected. I caught up. Which reminded me, there is nothing like making old friends.
