Dandelions Are Not Weeds

The mountains called and I went.

“Sometimes when we are little we imagine how it would be to have wings, but there is no reason to suppose it is the same feeling birds have.”

—   John Steinbeck

Last night I had a dream about you,
But I don’t remember why.
I remember going to the moon,
And the ocean.
I remember seeing the sun set and the fires burn.
I remember the feeling of life in a dream,
But I don’t remember you.
What does that say about me?
What does that say about you?

I’m slowing down and getting tired,

Though my mind won’t rest.  

Is this what aging is?

It’s your turn now.

I wish I wrote this, it’s great. (25 years old and young)

Don't date a girl who travels...

I’m in Disney World, aka the happiest place on earth!  And therefore, I have forgotten completely about the outside world. Sorry!

And that’s why I hate Apple

I would like to take a minute to say how much I loath Apple and all things Apple.

I finally thought I got away from the devil-company, formally known as Apple, when I bought a new phone the other day.  It’s an android and it is beautiful and wonderful and all things nice.  Apple however, is being a child and is holding my texts from my iPhone friends hostage; a petty move, Apple.

Anyway, I have read every forum and tried everything bit of advice.  I have “unregistered” my accounts to my phone number, I have changed my phone number to 000-000-0000 on my Apple account, and I have turned off any and all switch on my old iPhone. All to no anvil.

Somewhere out there in internety-wifiy land my number is still associated with Apple, and therefore the devil still has my soul.

I can’t escape and it’s fueling my hatred.  You better watch out, Apple, I am a woman who is very upset with you.

Morning showers

The most productive part of my day is when I take a shower in the morning.  

It’s where I make a mental list of things I have to get done in the day, where I have my most brilliant thoughts (only, I don’t have paper to write them down), where I brush my teeth, where my best singing happens, and where I drink my shower coffee. 

It all goes down hill from there.
