be still

September 28, 2012

Be still
And go on to bed
Nobody knows what lies ahead
And life is short
To say the least
We’re in the belly of the beast

Be still
Wild and young
Long may your innocence reign
Like shells on the shore
And may your limits be unknown
And may your efforts be your own
If you ever feel you can’t take it anymore

Don’t break character
You’ve got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Rise up like the sun
Labor till the work is done

Be still
One day you’ll leave
Fearlessness on your sleeve
When you’ve come back, tell me what did you see
What did you see
Was there something out there for me?

Be still
Close your eyes
Soon enough you’ll be on your own
Steady and straight
And if they drag you through the mud
It doesn’t change what’s in your blood
(Over chains)
When they knock you down

Don’t break character
You’ve got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?

Be still
Be still
Be still
Be still

Over rock and chain
Over sunset plain
Over trap and snare
When you’re in too deep
In your wildest dream
In your made up scheme
When they knock you down
When they knock you down

Don’t break character
You’ve got sooooo much heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Oh Rise up like the sun
And labor till the work is done
Rise up like the sun
Labor till the work is

Rise up like the sun
And labor till the work is done

Be Still

connection

September 27, 2012

connection.

we all want it. we all need some form of it. 

but how we choose to get it varies.

some like emblems of their associations; shared tokens of love to remind them throughout the day of that union and or friendship.

others like hand to hand, face to face, voice to voice exposure; an interrelation of ideas, laughs and activity. 

are you a cuddler? romantically do you like snuggling with your one and only? 

i know friends who thrive off spooning on sunday mornings, while others would rather wax their eyelids.

do you like to bond through experience and hustle? a little race in your heart and thrill in your eyes to tack you tighter to your beloved?

i find even though i don’t get to spend as much time with the people i love i still connect deeply with them. long distance and time away does not make for an impassive heart; quite the opposite really. 

and when i want to be with those far away or unreachable, i feel cheek to cheek close to them by breathing deep, getting quiet and being utterly grateful for the gift of their love. 

complete connection.

how do you like to feel connected to the ones you cherish m’loves? 

thursday beautiful to you.

september mourn

September 26, 2012

 i go through this every year during the month of september: an epic disappointment with southern california and its inability to produce seasonal weather.

throughout most of the country september means the transition from summer into fall. 

here is the definition of “transition”: movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage, subject, concept, etc., to another; change: the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

now, i’m not asking for change in “concept,” although can we officially drop the concept of the the gladiator sandal? PLEASE?

and i’m not asking for anything giant like a leap in maturity or growth in spirit, even though i think many of us this summer, myself included have regressed back to the id stage {i can’t seem to get this stupid thumb out of my mouth,} i’d just like it a few degrees cooler and maybe a sprinkle or two in the near future. 

this is what i long for:

many of you are experiencing the changing of leaves, as they scatter down on the roads, providing crunchy soundtracks to your treks to and from home. 

i have envied friends’ posts and photos of apple picking silliness which later turns into apple tarte-tatin delight. 

across the country, those sandaled feet of the summer are transitioning to toastier, more fashionable waters of woolen socks and patina’d, leathered boots. so inviting.

meanwhile, in southern california, this is still happening.

so tell me loves, what do you love about september?
