your joy can only fill you as deeply as your sorrow carved you

things are looking up

good news - stacey liked most of the shots i took on Saturday! so i'm excited. i need to go buy some cdrs so i can burn her copies and then plan when i can do another shoot with her.

there are green buds and tiny leaves on the trees. ithink i'm going to plant some flowers in the planters out front so that will fulfill my gardening itch that i've had.

you know what is depressing? there was only one page of want ads in the sunday paper. but there is a zaxby's opening up soon - maybe i can start bussing tables?

i've been thinking a lot about the saying "your joy can only fill you as deeply as your sorrow carved you". i'm not sure what i have to say about that yet. and yes, i'm channeling e.e. cummings today...because i can i guess, and i like his poetry.

  4. That's a new quote for me. But I think it is true. Life's ups and downs seem to turn out that way. Just when I thought I couldn't cry another tear i realized I was feeling happy,... go figure!

  5. Hmmmm...that's deep. I had to say it over and over to myself a few times to let it sink in.

    I want to cut and paste these lovely flowers onto my window so I can't see the snow that's falling outside.

  11. I like the quote. And your outlook. And a lot of people are bussing tables these days. But oh, I'm not sure if you kidding about that.
    Glad she liked the pics!

  12. love the title of this post.....found your blog and it resonated with me today, and then I saw the quote about being an invincible summer.....that quote has been my favorite for 30 years.
    Thanks for reminding me.
