Psalm 17:1

Hear my plea of innocence, O Lord; give heed to my cry;
listen to my prayer, which does not come from lying lips.

I was talking with a colleague today about big changes and new goals. Like walking to my local thrift store. Leaving the car behind. Shopping the Farmer's Market for great produce..... and cute farmers. She told me that hearing my ideas for my new life was "inspirational". I am completely blown away and encouraged on my new path.

can't decide what I love most: the dress or the boots?
love the open spaces

Coming Home

I know, I know. Taylor is a pretty, little girl who sings pretty, little songs. But every time, I hear Taylor (and Ed) sing this song, my head fills with visions of my wedding day and a beautiful, bearded husband. That's a vision that I'm not going to fight. 

'Cause all I know is we said, "Hello."
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
And you'll be mine and I'll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

Psalm 84

How lovely is Thy dwelling place, O Lord of hosts to me!
My soul is longing and fainting the courts of the Lord to see;
My heart and flesh they are singing for joy to the living God.
How lovely is Thy dwelling place, O Lord of hosts to me!

When It Breaks

Sometimes, life gets to be a little too much. You have to pause, cry, scream or all three if you're me. And then you have to move forward. Right now, I find myself struggling with the forward movement. I looked at a goal that I had written one year ago and realized.... NOTHING. I hadn't done one external thing to move tangibly closer to success. I'd done some thinking and some writing but there was no action behind it. It hit me like a ton of bricks. So, I'm moving on. Back to the drawing board but this time I won't stop at just drawing.

p.s. Happy Belated Halloween.

p.p.s. Frustration at personal goals is no reason to miss a chance at dressing up.

He remains bracingly frank about his romantic appeal ("the most beautiful women in the world are attracted to ugliness-as long as you've got a good tongue. Heh heh") and keen to endorse his favorite firearm ("a .38 Smith & Wesson Airweight revolver-that's the fucking gun. No safety on it.") - Keith Richards from a Vanity Fair Article

Beauty Queen Style

Lana Del Rey has infected my brain. In Texas, the summer really does last until almost November and it will return in March. But Lana makes me long for summer again. Insanity.

"I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I'm feeling alive"

New in the shop.
Top knot.

Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the hills;
from where is my help to come?
My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved
and he who watches over you will not fall asleep.
Behold, he who keeps watch over Israel
shall neither slumber nor sleep;
The Lord himself watches over you;
the Lord is your shade at your right hand,
So that the sun small not strike you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
it is he who shall keep you safe.
The Lord shall watch over your going out and coming in,
from this time forth for evermore.
