the goods: list 2

  • an inHERview with jen gray.
  • spending valentine's day weekend with beloveds. a burger & fries & a catchin' up conversation with an old friend, a sister, on friday, the 13th. 13 is her favorite & lucky number. we've known one another for nearly 20 years! watching Sixteen Candles later that night. waking in the mornings & sharing cups of coffee & tea (with cream & agave nectar). reading magazines & the newspaper. chatting about all things relevant & ridiculous in the hours before breakfast is made. spending most of valentine's day in pajamas. chocolate fondue & wine. surrounded by animal love: three cats + one doggie dear. playing cards. feeling loved & loving. music. lunch at my favorite restaurant before catching my 2:20 p.m. train home. planning our next visit together.
  • MAV & Stephanie's latest project: 3191 Miles Apart.
  • finding these words on monday morning while walking from the gym to the coffee shop: "Light Does Not End."
  • listening to the wee ones chatter, play & invent at the coffee shop while sitting on stools, swinging their feet. brother & sister. the sweetest.
  • Guidebook for a Modern Priest/ess by Ariel Spilsbury. this small & rich 17 page book showed up at this most perfect/divine time in my life journey.
