someone's trash will soon be my treasure

on our way to church this morning, i spotted these darling
 antique chairs in the trash pile of our parking garage.
how could someone throw these away!?
well, i am so glad they did.
i shall paint them.
and give them cute new cushions.
and they will live on my patio with the baby blue retro chairs.


i've been working on a collaborative creative project
with two of my work lovelies.
i can't wait to share it with you soon, soon.


Happy Father's Day to our Dads.

He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

take all of your wasted honor
every little past frustration
take all of your so-called problems,
better put em in quotations

say what you need to say

walking like a one man army
fighting with the shadows in your head
living out the same old moment
knowing you'd be better off instead,
if you could only . . .

say what you need to say

have no fear for giving in
have no fear for giving over
you'd better know that in the end
its better to say too much
then never say what you need to say again

even if your hands are shaking
and your faith is broken
even as the eyes are closing
do it with a heart wide open

say what you need to say


a simple kind of life
-no doubt



i had a nice talk with my chirp tonight.
considering going un-private.
i need to find this smile again.


i love driving by this angel when i am home.
going to w-town this weekend where it is quiet and there is no traffic.
