June 7, 2010

it’s worked. the images have worked. no matter how delicious the key lime pie or side splitting the story, i can’t get the oil-coated pelican off my brain.

friends visiting from the east got a taste of my grizzly, murky mood this past weekend. while they delighted in lobster spring rolls and wedding plans, i plotted how not to drive my hybrid as much.

i feel so responsible. i unplug every unused cord and even some that i DO (kinda) need. penance for all those times i unplugged my brain.

today i’m wearing moody as my accessory.

{let’s be honest, i’ve been channeling sylvia plath since age 7 }

i’m not complaining. i’m just sad for the state of status quo. i get my hopes up and think we’re better than where we are.

yet, then i’ll drive around looking at people’s bumper stickers; next thing i know: i’m in a corner, fetally rock back and forth, singing “landslide” with my thumb in my mouth.

i’m sure by tomorrow i’ll be pirouetting, peonies in my hair, with a case of the giggles.

i’m a loon. my favorite foods are kale juice and cupcake frosting (preferably pink).  there’s no sense to be made…

happy monday friends.

  • You should try living with my oldest son! He needs to save the world, apparently, and quite honestly I hope he studies environmental science. Anytime we are out and buy a drink or snack that is in any kind of recyclable container we must bring it home to recycle. We have a mulch pile and 2 hybrid cars…I pride myself on making used stuff pretty…we walk or bike where/when we can….but it still is not enough. So glad you care. XO

  • oh, it looks like a deightful colorful weekend!

  • you might possibly be my twin sister ~ drive hybrid less, indulge in kale juice and pink frosting, and take infinite photos of our four-legged babies!

    let's channel good vibes for a change in this disaster! we must.

  • Oh my…just noticed you are reading the new Isabel Allende. What do you think?

    I have only 100 pages left…a bit nervous that you, the wordsmith and braniac, might judge my recommendation. Ouch.
