UntitledI want to pour out my mind
onto a leaf of paper,
as you have poured out
your heart on my plate.
so you could see what
makes me sane-
and like or despise me
at your cost- validly.
but lately I've been thinking (surprise)
enough to fill a novel
but far too little to write,
so I can't describe to you
why I shoved it away.
put in a box and left it.
and you've given me nothing-
nothing to go on...to allow me to see why
you do it so well.
all I will know is that it's endlessly beautiful
-that broken validity-
that I cannot express.
Same time, next yearAnother year has gone by and here I am, sitting, the night before law school classes are up and running, and I realize I never blog.
I kept word this year and managed to write... a little... The old book is in reworks/rewrites/wtf-was I thinking when I wrote this. The new book is trash, floating in my recycle bin. I'll get to it. I really will.
Check back this time next year.
Life is... content. I am full of wishing right now. I wish I got to church more often, wish I understood antitrust, wish J would get that call we're waiting on, wish I was more creative with my dinner plans, wish fall would finally just get here already. Wish. Wish. Wish. Despite all of these wishes, I think everything seems to be going pretty well.
J and I welcomed a new addition to our little family this summer... a little girl. Her name is Lizzy and she has black hair. Her eyes are huge and her face all wrinkles. I can hear her crying in her room right now as I sit typing this blog. She's adopted from China... as she is a Chinese Pug.
Super cute. I'm in love.
Still battling the law school dragon (can anyone believe I actually own a book called "slaying the law school dragon"? It's for sale... anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Yeah, didn't think so). Still trying to balance my life as a student/friend/puppy mama/wife/child etc...
I have wrinkles. They're new. I discovered them this summer. "Crows Feet" I think you call them. Humph.
Other than that... nothing new from us...
What's up out there blog world?
