today from the quote journal: "live every day like it is stolen from death." (from the art of racing in the rain by garth stein)
how delicious to think of treating days as stolen fruit without the guilt. now i'm thinking of the peach or pomagranite juice dripping down my chin...in the summer especially. or drinking from a hose pipe. can you imagine living your days that way? what a wonderful perspective.
i admit it...there are days that i hum and ho through life. dreading the getting out of bed and dragging myself to the office and then drudging my way home to throw together dinner. ugh - who wants to live that way? not me.
today on my ipod - real wild child (iggy pop), bent (rob thomas), stay on the ride (patty griffin), life less ordinary (carbon leaf), don't stop 'til you get enough (michael jackson), i go blind (hootie & the blowfish), love train (the o'jays), some kind of wonderful (grand funk), don't stop (fleetwood mac)
read this week - bloodroot (didn't like it - i'm typically a sucker for southern writers but this one depressed me and i didn't see a real resolution. i also did not like the myriad of voices in the writing), a year on ladybug farm (it was pleasant but not "literature" in that i did not learn anything earthshattering or there were no real societial issues)
if you haven't followed relyn's month of passions you should. today i talk about my passion for music.
