a poem. by me.

accompanied by a picture. by me aswell.

i watched a star die tonight
as it breathed it’s fiery last
with gaseous inhale grown so bright
exhale, condense, pass

a hole in the shade of night
with a stitch mended too soon
diamond soul that payed so bright
a tribute to her moon

who in blindness could ever fathom
how vast and heavy mortality lies
but true beauty is more beautiful than beauty imagined
though we witness its death with open eyes

This tree was drawn for this dear friend for the wonderful website she is creating in preparation for a wonderful journey.

I guess I'm not much of a blogger. Although life is moving full speed ahead and many changes are in the making, I just haven't felt the push to sit down and tell about them. But last weekend my dear friend Bree celebrated her 19th. It was a mad dance party to say the least. 

We the mad tea party (alice, march hare, mad hatter)

And thanksgiving was lovely. Spent with friends and food and talking about this place for hours. More confirmation that that is where God has me to be next march through the next march after that. I am blessed because God is so good.

through the years

Halloween has come and gone and left behind it good memories. I was looking through old pictures and found a few of Alli, Zach, and I all dressed up.

Present (left), Fairy Girl? (center), Pirate (right)

Black Cat (left), Cubicle (center), 80's Chick (right)

It's looking at pictures like this that make me so happy for these two. I don't really know what I would do without them. They are one of God's biggest blessings in my life. 

And it's looking at pictures like these that make me cry a little bit.


and now:

hello again

Oh man. I have been so neglectful of this poor blog. I have been crafting more than usual, I just haven't gotten a chance to post about it yet. Allison and I have begun planning christmas early this year so I've stayed busy shopping, planning, collaborating, and... making ornaments ^_^. So far I have made two and as soon as I have pictures I will post them. 

But tomorrow is halloween/harvestday/reformationday/whateverwhocaresanyway. What it really comes down to is candy and tricker-treating. And meeting new people and dancing. So in light of that, here is what I drawed for our halloween neighborhood bbq flyers. 

Tonight is dressing up and dancing and it is so good because I haven't been to a dance party in a long time.

encouraged by these

  1. When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
    When sorrows like sea billows roll;
    Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
    It is well, it is well, with my soul.
    • Refrain:
      It is well, with my soul,
      It is well, it is well, with my soul.
  2. Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
    Let this blest assurance control,
    That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
    And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
  3. My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
    My sin, not in part but the whole,
    Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
  4. For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
    If Jordan above me shall roll,
    No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
    Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
  5. But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
    The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
    Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
    Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!
  6. And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
    The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
    The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
    Even so, it is well with my soul.

clad in slippers

Some lovely parts of today... time-lapse videos, new anthropologie catalog, and dabbling with watercolor and ink. Somehow, they are all connected.

And to top it off is the continuation of lovely fall weather here in southern california. Three cheers for socks turned inside out and moccasin slippers worn all day.
