the goods: list 9

  • my inHERview with dar.
  • Purely Decadent made with Coconut Milk non-dairy frozen dessert: Mint Chip
  • Calobo. i saw them live in eugene, oregon in 1998. have a listen to one of my fav Calobo tunes, "Share the Light" - it's not the best recording and it's worth a listen (especially on a rainy-illuminating-the-bright-green month of may sunday):
  • i dig the television show - Castle. reminds me of what i like about another favorite show - The Closer.
  • are you familiar with the band October Project? have i written about them before? so good. listen here.
  • sunday: spent in pjs; clearing/cleansing my space bit by bit, corner by corner, shelf by shelf, box by box - filling up the bag o' recycling, bags for goodwill & piles for shredding while CBS Sunday Morning & You've Got Mail play in the background; updating finances & my Netflix queue (after reactiving my account); and, turning on my twinkle lights early in the day & keeping them on all day long.
  • emptied vases of winter's dried flowers waiting to be filled with spring's fresh flowers.
  • tucking away my winter coat & gear.
  • writing vision lists for work & home.
  • reaching out to soul*friends/soul*family to share the dream i am dreaming - the leap i am leaping; to say, "i'm scared"; to ask, "what do you think?" & "will you tell me it's all going to be okay - that i am going to be okay - better than okay - thriving, joyFULL?"; to say, "i love you so much. thank you so much. you made/make it so much easier. you increase(d) the quality of my life."; to cry; to giggle; to shine...
  • unearthing these words by Rainer Marie Rilke: "I believe in all that has never yet been spoken. / I want to free what waits within me / so that what no one has dared to wish for / may for once spring clear without my contriving. / If this is arrogant, God, forgive me, / but this is what I need to say. / May what I do flow from me like a river, / no forcing and no holding back, / the way it is with children. / Then in these swelling and ebbing currents, / these deepening tides moving out, returning, / I will sing you as no one ever has, / streaming through widening channels / into the open sea." yes, i want to free what waits within me & yes, may what i do flow from me like a river & yes, i will sing you.
  • a give*away/a gem parcel coming soon...
