right now

source: ?

...I am drinking diet coke through a straw with ice tinkling on the glass & watching my backyard be lit up by sunlight & listening to George Michael's 'Faith' (daggy to the extreme I know, I know) & eating lotsa pasta & swooning over Garance Doré's blog and the cherry blossom girl (YUM!) & doing something I never expected... relishing being home. Sweet.

All in all, today ain't half bad.

when lost.

1. put on your mother's dress.
2. take off your shoes and socks.
3. breathe.
4. wander.
5. see.

101 reasons to smile: Your Song.

You recognise it before the first note is over. You remember every word, every note, every little thing. Its like your heart beats in time. It's your anthem, its your song.

You know, the one that makes your insides tingle each and every time. It's the one that if you were a song, this would be it.

Sometimes you forget about it, you forget about that tingle, that energy, that recognition that bubbles up inside you when you hear it - but when you do, oh, when you do, you know it. Your every atom knows it.

And you're the one who rocks out hardest to it. You're the one who finds it hardest not to burst into dance when listening to it in public. Darn it, its your song. No one else loves it quite as much as you do.

So turn the music up, remember that there is no one else like you in this crazy universe of ours, and get down to it!

smiling like mad,

sunsets & long strides

photo: Garance Doré

It's this time of year, when blue skies become commonplace, the sunsets seem to last forever, between the laneways and the train tracks
fairytales begin to come true, & on the street wrinkled men, overworked mothers & dancing, sunburnt children start to look up, up... it's this time of the year that dreams seem just that bit closer, just that bit more real.

Which is why you should always let down your hair, trust in the journey rather than the destination, take your time, breathe the air, dream of all you will become and revel in what you are.

(because you're a star!)

dreaming of you,

(Sorry guys I'm having a little trouble with the font size. I apologize if it's too small, or if some words appear larger - it's not intentional! Also, if anyone else has had this problem & fixed it, please let me know how! Thanks).

Please don't forget where you come from. Don't forget your brothers and sisters. Don't forget your just a child of the trees and the sun (not that you could be 'just' anything). Don't forget that the earth is bigger than all of us. That the world is breathing, wondering, learning, just like we are, for ever and ever.
