my attempt at blending the arts I cherish

let’s be honest

…life is not as i imagined it to be; it is much harder than the dreams i fed throughout my childhood years

…i miss that precious black ball of fur following my every step

…the smallest, most insignificant things move me emotionally–a wink, a hug, a squeeze of the shoulder, a shared love of a book, a snack of bread and cheese, a fallen tree, a movie trailer that i can’t stop watching, a song that sweeps me off my feet, a peaceful porch surrounded by woods, a piano and friends, car rides with nice breezes and sunsets, just the simple pleasure of being amongst the people you love

…i feel deeply about everything

…the Lord is too good to me and most days all i can do is smile and whisper “i love you” as way of expressing my gratitude

…i must grow up, but doing so is not all that bad for “to live would be an awfully big adventure.” and as long as i continue to see it as an ongoing, character-developing escapade then things should be a little more gentle.

…blessings are abundant in my little life

…i’m still learning and every day brings a new lesson, a new revelation. and this is the way it should always be
