Keep your head in the clouds...

Do you remember making shapes out of the clouds? Don't tell me you didn't ever do it. I did it today for the first time in a while. It really is a wonderful pass time, for any type of mood you're in. Make sure you keep your heads in the clouds, it's wonderful up there.

Depression? Fuck him. Just go paint. Paint. Paint.

Smile. Just don't forget to smile.

What's in a smile? Juliet may not have thought a name important. But she could not have denied a smile. Any smile. Genuine smiles just make my day. 1 year olds smiles are the best. Also a smile between two friends. And a smile with a boy on the pathway. Or from a bus driver when you yell out "thank you driver!".

Love your home & wish for a gingerbread house

Haiti turned Hansel. The Haiti earthquake killed more than 200,000 people and left1.5 million homeless. Ergo Haitians are turning into modern day Hansel & Gretels finding construction plans in Haiti's old gingerbread houses. 

Vivian Gauthier, 92, runs a dance academy out of her gingerbread house, which she has lived in since 1932. She just made me think how self-absorbed we can all get from time to time complaining about what really are luxuries in our lives. Just love it. Love everything.

Only one life to live? You must not know how to read a book. Find a favorite book.

Have you ever been to a book fair? No? Go. Yes? Lovely. I went for the first time today. My hung over state dragged itself out into the sun, which then led itself into kafee eis, and then down the wharf to the $2 book fair. I bought Twenty names in Film, and One of my Very Best Friends. The later I bought in the hope of turning it into a sort of packaging for one of my own very best friends :). DIY much? I thought so. Always the loveliest way to give.

Study late- with you're pals.

Its 12.23am. Just timed myself for my 30minute presentation I have to do on Friday. I've got 27mins still to go. That's what ya get when you study with ya pals; drive out to  Brooklyn hill just to get each of your favorite burgers, share a whole bag of cornchips, a box of shapes, pik'n'mix lollies, frozen moro golds, diet coke, coffee-then tea, talk about the difference between jedis and unagi, try to do unagi, talk about what more food we could eat, contemplate going to the dairy before it hits midnight, talk about unagi again, laugh at how much our assignments are not making sense, youtube unagi, then finally get to a point where you have reason to love studying through the night. Over tiredness. Pals.

Totally worth it.

Find your Pandora & hold their hand

Everyone needs a Pandora. More to the point everyone needs a Pandora to hold hands with. My own Pandora said to me last night as we walked home..."there's just something lovely about holding hands"..."you're right, it's just- lovely".

Life is remembered here

Every day, be it the start or the end, I visit my favorite blogs. They all have the same thing in common, that being they all remind me of all the things in life that I love. Those things that when documented, remind you why life is so wonderfully great. And the fear of time passing by and having those lovely things go unnoticed is...well...unbearable. So this is the blog that documents life and makes sure that time doesn't pass me by too fast. Hope it brings you the loveliness that my bloggers bring me every day.
