Dream Tan

I had a dream last night that I was in a contest to try and apply fake tanner lotion as evenly and quickly as possible. I would put it on and it instantly would streak and look orange or a horrible pea green. I kept yelling "it's too late to go back! Help!" but everyone was just laughing and agreeing that I really never got over the 80's.

Rude, everyone. Rude.

You Meta, You Meta, You Bet!

I am working on a big project with a favorite person (Hi E!) and one of my assignments was to read my entire blog, top to bottom, and pull some favorite posts. I did it. Lord have mercy. Talk about a weird little trot down the lane of memories.

So many pictures. So many moments. So many ups and downs. So many times I said I was going to lose weight and go to grad school. Seven years!

It made me realize I want to start using it again as a daily update with pics. I miss doing that and future me will miss being able to look back on them from my under water space lair.

Also, life is wonderful right now. I know it won't always be. (If you don't believe that just read the Six Flags ride that is this blog) But I've slowly started to be able to just enjoy and not worry quite so much. I'm thankful to my crazy life for that. It's nice. A relief.

Enough about THAT! Let's have fun again!

Jeffrey Chambertain is a special guy. Very very......special.

our music

I've been thinking a lot about our inner music. How music makes us feel so deeply. There are songs I've heard and songs I haven't heard yet that make me feel like I'll never be the same again. In the best way. Stirring is the best word for it. They stir my cells up. Redistributing the love and fear and memories and wild guesses about my life.

I found this this link yesterday and have listened to it about 35 times since. It made me feel like weeping. Again, in the best way possible.

Anyway, listen to it.

It's all of us.

I think that's what gets me about it. The unity of man, animals, nature creating our vibrations/melody of our home.

I sent it to my dad because we are very alike about our feelings on the grandness of it all. The big and the giant. The so tiny that they are almost invisible. It's all of us and it makes me feel love and loved. Forever, never alone.

This was his reply and I'll save it forever.

"Love your music and earths. Maybe all of creation, all creatures and plants and more sing their song but we just don't have the ears to listen. Maybe we could hear if we listened differently. Maybe it would be so overwhelming if we could hear all that symphony of life we would just sit and starve as the concert went on and on. Maybe we could bring chips and drinks. So much uncertain. Love, Dad"
