I biked into town today.

Went to the thrift store and bought some cute fabric.

I explored a new bookstore that just opened up.

Stopped by the Tuesday Market and looked through jams and fresh veggies.

I bought some bokchoy and the woman gave me a free turnip when I told her I was going to make a stir-fry.

I also laid outside for a long time, and read a lot (I'm in the middle of Wicked, by Gregory Maguire, really good) and basically had a good day.

Now there's sugar cookies in the oven, and I'm going to watch Stranger than Fiction and make some cards.

To my foreign friends, I miss you all.
Unknowingly, you set me free.

I harbored something underneath your skin

and I can see it growing out in your beard

And now, it is not for you my heart pounds
but for the pieces of me left in you

stashed there like the valuables they are

hoarded and tucked
into the folds of your mouth when you smile.

small pleasures.

I made a tea wallet today.

I took a long bike ride and lied by the side of the road and watched the wind ruffle the leaves of the trees.

I picked some of the lettuce growing in garden for a dinner salad.

I finished a painting I've been working on.

This morning was a lovely mixture of coffee, pastries, talk between friends, and clothing.

All simple, all lovely.

spend more time in nature. preferably naked.

Yesterday, I took a walk and it was raining and sunny at the same time. And I walked up a hill, and there was this huge rainbow, and at first I just thought "Okay, rainbow." But then I really stopped and looked at it, and realized rainbows are REALLY COOL.

I've been playing a lot of guitar lately, too. I wrote a new song (bringing my total to a proud 3!) and not that my singing is any great shakes. But by golly, I love it. And why do it but for that reason alone?

Been trying to stay positive.
This has been involving steering clear of the internet for a while.
But here's a coolish site anyway:

This wall...dude. My wall is crying for a mural like that.
