alone, not lonely.

“There are places and moments in which one is so completely alone that one sees the world entire.” ~ Jules Renard

snow day!

thanks to a heavy blanket of snow across the city of dallas today, there is NO SCHOOL! i'm so happy to stay in my fuzzy warm blanket, reading and drinking hot peppermint tea. i haven't seen this much snow since i was a little girl and i'm loving it.

All She Wants....

She wants the shark to stay out of her waters.
She wants a catsuit, a knife, a set of acrylics,
a baba ghanouj and falafel sandwich.
She wants the grit to come out of the floorboards.
She wants to know who read her census form.
There will be no appraisal of her internal logic,
no assault of magnolia blossoms in February.
She wants an argument to break into a crest soothing as pillows, a new coat of paint and a chair she can sink into.
How can she get her shadow back?
She wants laugh lines.
She wants to scale tall buildings on a black night.
Who doesn't want more from her salad?
Who wouldn't want a trusted psychic friend?
She wants to get back in the Ryder truck and try again,
wants to wreck her stockings in some jukebox dive.
She wants me to stop pressing.
She wants the takeoff and not the landing.
She wants to trickle down a windowpane.
She wants to know what Jesus would have done.
She wants the tame and untame to switch habitats.
She wants to scrub time right off her hands.

meet neko case.

this is my favorite singer/songwriter of all time. i believe she is truly a legend.
i recommend "blacklisted" above all her other albums, but they are all amazing.
