Stories, re-telling my latest Adventures, Daydreams, random thoughts, & my everyday encounters with the things I love.
My (borrowed) mission statement for life:
"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself." - Neil Gaiman
March 15th 2011: Started The Hunger Games series. March 22nd 2011: Finished the Hunger Games series. April 1st 2011: Wondered how soon is too soon to read them over again? May 2011: Badgered all my friends to read them and requested text message updates on where they were at so I could live vicariously through them & talk about everything. Today: Made plans to buy The Girl Who Was on Fire next weekend! WIN :)
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
I’ve spent the past three days sleeping in, eating delicious blueberry waffles, lying in cozy blankets, reading and being memorized by The Hunger Games and watching old episodes of Buffy. Thank you weekends for providing oh-so-content days of relaxation!
