Kiddo loves spray parks and we are lucky to have some great ones close by. Yesterday afternoon we ventured to Cumberland Park in Nashville. It was the perfect day for it, not to hot, not too sunny (although I did get a little crispy on my nose and forehead). The park is beautiful, with lovely... Continue Reading →
There's a car that always parks in the same space in the internal depths of the parking garage. It is always shrouded in a car cover concealing what must be something pretty special to the owner. I can hardly stand it and every time I walk by I just want to take a peek underneath... Continue Reading →

I have been trying to find this poem for AGES!! I remember it from a college lit class and it stuck in my head all these years, popping up every now and then for whatever reason. But all I could remember was that it was about a cleaning lady finding a frog in the toilet.... Continue Reading →

I've had "Edge of Desire" from JM's new album, Battle Studies, on repeat in my car for the past week. Sometimes I get hooked on a song and won't let it go. This one in particular makes me all melancholy and wistful weird. It's tortured, longing, desperate. It speaks to me for various personal reasons I won't go into. It reminds... Continue Reading →
I like it when a man smiles from his eyes first. You can see it coming. The crinkling around the eyelids, the dancing light in the pupils, and then the slight upturn of the mouth a mere instant before the full-on grin. I'm just sayin'.
Sometimes (ok a lot of times) I catch myself completely zoning out. As in spacey-brain, mind-wandering, free-thinking, day-dreamin' girl. It's like the opposite of meditation or something. Because when you meditate aren't you supposed to be focused on something specific? Like various aspects of nature, deep breathing, or how your aura fits within the Universe... Continue Reading →
I'm bored people so here's what I want to do... - go to a baseball game - go shopping for some desperately needed new clothes. and shoes. - take a vacation to somewhere calm and restful - get out the atlas, close my eyes and go wherever my finger lands - put pink streaks in... Continue Reading →
I've been stressed and sick lately so today I decided it was time for a day just for myself. I dropped Sam off at daycare by 8:00 and then came back home to take Cooper to the vet for a bath and some attention from someone other than me. He nearly jerked my arm off... Continue Reading →
