and my brain is hurting.

we ate blocks of cheese all weekend
I believe these pancake-cheese-and-laughter filled weekends are completely necessary in life.

I too, have been looking for someone. Unfortunately, I do not have a recent picture, but her pretty face is burned indelibly into my mind. Like you, I last saw her on the beaches of N.C., but I understand she lost her cellphone, lost her mind and has been institutionalized due to severe trauma resulting from this incredible loss. I am currently at work, alas, I do not have a number to contact her. I can be reached at 276-523-$%^& extension 2060 if you have any information.
We found each other. Tears were shed. All is well in dadddy-daughter land.

I was like a kid in a candy shop.
After having the best time recording I left to catch up with my friend Peter to sing a few tunes at his gig in Roanoke, VA.
It was an all day music fest.
and...I had FUN. I just felt like something was lifted from me and I just had, well...FUN.
(if you only knew my performers anxiety you would understand why this was such a big deal for me)
So. I'm still working all this....putting myself out there mumbo jumbo. But, I think it's starting to work.
and I found this quote that I wrote down in an old journal from the movie "Into the Wild" (one of my favorites)
"I believe that the good gets better"
Don't ya just have to believe that? I do. I do, I do.

I want to curl up on a couch with her and have her brush with my hair and tell me stories about how everything will be alright. Does she give you that feeling? Maybe...maybe not?
What brings me to this rant about my love of Oprah? I was cleaning out an old notebook today and found this quotes taped to the inside:
"It doesnt matter how you come to it...just that you do: Finally recognize that no one is responsible for your life but you. That you're creating your current and future reality thought by thought. And that what you give your attention to only gets bigger and manifests itself in the world. So try to live a life focusing on what's good and what you're grateful for, in order to have more goodness"
It was taken from this article that I have been saving and stowing away for a few years now. It has gotten me through some tough times. I never thought a single sheet of magazine paper could speak so much to me.
Love ya, Oprah. One day I might be sitting on that couch with you (sans hair brush for rating purposes)

(and no. I will not become someone who just posts videos of themselves singing on youtube....in their bathroom/living room/kitchen..But this made me laugh at myself, my camera skills and my temper.)
I even let friends in on my project. Amy would pop her head into my office each Wednesday and declare: "It's Wednesday. Is your life together?" and I would either smile and nod or moan about what I had still not accomplished.

Maybe I'm still dreaming of the moon on the ocean water.
