the barest branches and other lovely things
the barest branches in the blue winter sky. the lace-y braches curling and reaching towards the sky. the flocks of birds perching in respite before flying on. before i know it leaves will bud out and cover the branches. the branches will shelter me below and i will listen to the winds rustle through the leaves. this brings thoughts of contentment.
the freewrite friday exercises at gigi's the magpie's fancy blog. if you have an interest in writing you may want to check this series out. check out the initial post and you will see that gigi has been writing and publishing since her early twenties (!!! exciting). so far the exercises have helped me expand my mind and though i'm a bit behind, i am really digging the series and always look forward to fridays to see what she has dreamed next.
all things grapefruit - especially ocean spray ruby red grapefruit juice and bath & body works pink grapefruit body spray. yum.
the music stylings of van morrison...and it is true, momma told me that there would be days like this. i've loved him for years - before there was a van morrison song on the end credits of any romantic or meaningful movie....before, i slow danced at weddings to crazy love....before it was cool to love van morrison. yes. i am always loving van morrison.
the ideal of flashmobs that are as cool as the one on glee (safety dance). i would be so thrilled to be somewhere and everyone around me started dancing and singing. can you imagine? if the idea intrigues you, check out youtube for the one around christmas that flashmobbed the hallelujah chorus. so very cool.
and cherry pies. cherries are so good this time of year and remind of my father. i think i have to have a cherry pie this weekend.
hope you have a beautiful weekend...and do something you absolutely love. (ps - i'm still rather smitten with my entirely ugly but comfy pink bedroom slippers)
