i've got soul, but i'm not a soldier.

So I don't know about you, but I could use a little pick-me-up tonight.


We received some pretty, oofdah, disappointing news tonight that puts a {hopefully temporary} road block in our *really exciting* plans that were going to unfold this summer. The kind of road block that when you start pulling up to it, you bang on your steering wheel, throw out a word bomb, and post on FB how annoyed you are at it.  What does this =?  A blog of quotes.  Boom.  I know it's not as cool as a blog full of my own photos, but if a blog doesn't somehow also revive a little soul in you, then really... ;)

And I can't.  I probably should have been blogging about this whole mess of a process we are in to some day be able to look back and scoff at the impossibilities...or maybe help someone trying to start something sweet...but, well, why the heck not start now! 

There's some complicated stuff going on at my real job (like healthcare crazy, not Greys Anatomy crazy).  My coworker said something that has stuck with me since Tuesday that, "in the midst of all of this, we still just need to live every day life, too, and enjoy it."  Really, it puts it into perspective in a way I can never eloquently verbalize - that whether it's sad, or disappointing, or confusing, or the happiest thing ever - every day life will still be there.  Waiting for us to {start some epic shit}.

Tonight I like that tomorrow is more of an every day life day in the way that it's like a momentary security blanket in the midst of this point of not knowing where to start next.  I'll have some coffee.  Make some phone calls.  Probably get really frustrated at some point.  And then do something awesome (like go to the simulcast of This American Life!).


So here's to every day life and all it's gracious curiosities and adventures while we drink another glass of Broke Ass wine and start all over again!

"I've got soul, but I'm not a soldier."


...oh man...start all over again!

Tread softly.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
~ W.B. Yeats

The past few months since I had gotten all into blogging and then got out have been crazy.  I know I can't keep up the way I did last year...but the inspiration and oomph to create and explore and discover that I found last year from blogging I'm really missing right now.  If you haven't blogged for awhile, but know you want to, you should start again with me...make it simple and sweet, not too complicated and not over-committed.  I bet you'll be glad you did!  

This past year was quite defining of dreams and to know that I had Justin by my side through it all...he treaded softly on my dreams and ushered them to become what they currently are evolving into.  As did all of our awesome city friends and family...who are just awesome.  Can't wait to see where these and your dreams show up this 2012.  {there's quite a bit more to say of last year...but not tonight!}
