I decided to run outside today because the weather was absolutely georgeous… Down by the plaza there were people EVERYWHERE. It was amazing to see old people, young people, ritch people, poor people, homeless people, people with dogs, people on bikes, people wearing almost nothing, people playing in the fountain, people playing frisbee… and most of all, people smiling. Smiling because it would be impossible to not smile on a day as beautiful as this one.
Happy Birthday Alison! There is something about you that rocks my socks off!
I know that posting lyrics on the blog is not such a popular thing to do, but from time to time I like to go through my previous posts and see what I was “into” on that day.
Today these lyrics from the amazing Regina Spector have been in my head.
“… this is how it works
you’re young until you’re not
you love until you don’t
you try until you can’t
you laugh until you cry
you cry until you laugh
and everyone must breathe
until their dying breath
this is how it works
you peer inside yourself
you take the things you like
and try to love the things you took
and then you take that love you made
and stick it into some–
someone else’s heart
pumping someone else’s blood … ”
If you could buy ANYTHING for $10 what would it be?
This is the “would you rather” that I have been asking lately.
Would you rather have there be no God, or there IS a God, but he cares about EVERYTHING except for you?
Places that I would like to visit:
An island with my best friend
I think that green is my new favorite color.
I am really good at cooking on the grill.
My brother got tickets to the Royals game tomorrow night. He is really developing into a nice young man.
