closed eye moments…

I value closed eye moments. Usually when I close my eyes and breathe properly, life takes on the best flavors and shapes. Over the past few days I've been closing my eyes quite a bit. It helps me center and focus on whatever tasks are required to finish the day. Do you ever feel like that? Like a day is just a set of requirements... I'm counting days until New York City. I'm broke, as I always am when it comes to times of travel... ok I'm...

900 bucks. the Queen strikes again.

I think it's hilarious that Australia is part of the commonwealth and find the entire gesture of the monarchy laughable. However as a silver lining kind of girl, there's a bright side to everything.

When we got home from church my mother would cook an insane Easter feast. It used to be one of my favorite holidays. Seeing as I'm in Australia, I missed...

spinning from spoken. rock of ages.

Namaste blog family I'm still a bit floaty after putting together my first spoken clip yesterday. I woke up in the morning and realized I could edit stills into video; came across some CDs I haven't listened to in ages as operation house re-vamp continues; and picked a piece of a poem at random to read.
