"You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love till it kills you both. You'll fight and you'll shag and you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children, it's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." - Spike, "Lovers' Walk" (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)

Coming back from lunch to find a little love note from the man of my dreams waiting for me in my inbox.

neola: 7/1000

the last time i felt tears was when i was departing jackson. i was sitting at the intersection of jefferson and fortification facing fenian's, listening to the grateful dead's "box of rain," waiting for the light to change. it all hit me, what i was leaving behind and what i was facing. this was the first time i'd ever truly felt frightened, but encouraged by the road ahead.

this morning on my bus ride into work, i felt those joyful and frightened tears hit my cheeks again. the hot, salty tears fell as i was reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

so, in short, getting to feel it again.

teaching my 3-year-old cousin Parker how to break tortilla chips into "parker-sized" pieces.

an introduction to what we're doing, where the idea came from...

my good friend patrick started a blogging project this past march. i have been meaning to follow suit since day one, and, well, now i am.

unabashedly copying my creative, talented, brilliant long-distance-partner-in-crime.

and you know what, i also encourage errybody to do it too. for good reason:

i've been waxing poetic for the last few months about not being negative. amy got me hooked on this whole positive thinking, Law of Attraction thing. i just feel that keeping a record of sorts of all the good stuff, big or small, will help keep your mind(set) right.

so. if you're down. do it.
