Somewhere Over The Rainbow...

Okay. Hawaii. The place of my child. A grown-up more tropical version of Disneyland.

August 2010?

Maybe, baby. Maybe.

Weekend Update 1.

So I'm starting a new section of this blog called Weekend Update. Its exactly what it sounds like: a little update of my weekend!

Friday Night: worked at the tanning salon then headed to the girls' apartment and after, Bethany's 19 birthday party. Got to see some old friends. Back to the apartment, hung out with a random bunch of pals.
Saturday: worked at the tanning salon again :) and then headed home to get ready for the Cross Canadian Ragweed and Lucero concert with the whole "family" and Uncle Jon + Pauly too :D we have such a blast, it was amazing, especially when we all sang/danced/screamed/cheered together during our favorite songs. Stayed up far too late and learned about a FAB band called The Avett Brothers, maybe heading to another concert in a few weekends at the lovely cain's ballroom.
Sunday: Coffee, ciggarettes, and family time at the house till I had to be at work. Except I lost my keys and was 30 minutes late. Thank goodness my boss is understanding!!! Its been great, and I think tonight i'll do a little exercising and then more family time.

Gotta Love it.

Sham Sham

This is Sami, my amazing 14 year old little sister. She's a wild one, this girl! And I love her. We have a bond thats this beautiful mix of teasing and lifting up and discovering new things together. The summer after my senior year, she was one of my best friends. Things have gotten a little bit crazier in both of our lives (she's in high school, college for me) but lately I have felt so much closer to her. I'm not sure what it is, but she's just growing up I guess. One of the things that we talk a lot about these days is music--rock and roll mostly. Lately we've been listening to a lot of Zeppelin, Hendrix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, and David Bowie. Ahhh, such amazing music, and its bringing us together again. Thats definitely my taste right there, and I love that she's experincing such growth because of it. mmhmm..its a beautiful thing.

golden boy

golden boy
gorgeous little q-tip head
instead of mowing the lawn,
you've started growing grass.

seventeen redhot coals
burned down
eight months of ashes

jack kerouac's roman candle
lit one last time

exploding across my sky.
