tagged. . .


i have been *tagged* by Boho and

We have to post these rules before we give you the facts:

Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged write their own blog post about their
eight things and include these rules.

My Eight Randoms..

1. "gray" is my middle name. the same as my Father's.

2. driving in the back seat of a car, the sight of raw meat, the smell
of green peppers cooking, and the feel of wet felt are all things that
make me want to vomit.

3. i am a big tom-boy though i love to wear skirts,
chunky jewelry, and lip gloss.

4. id rather roam in an abandoned barn than go shopping at the outlet stores..

5. i am not afraid of public speaking, snakes, traveling alone, or walking outside
in the woods at night. i am, however, afraid of the germs on doorknobs,
handrails, and in public bathrooms.

6. i used to dream about having three boys ~ Finn, Charlie, and Cole.
instead i have four cats ~ Marty, Lucy, Big, and Little.

7. i will get crabby if i do not get time to myself.
even as a child i used to hide in the window-well just to be alone.

8. i prefer Little House on The Prairie and the Andy Griffith Show
over Desperate Housewives and American Idol.

*since most of my friends have already been tagged, feel free to send me your own eight randoms!

sigh. . .

swept away, barga cemetery ~ canon 20 d

you know those vacations in which everything
was beyond perfect and beautiful and fun and peaceful,
that when you try to describe it to another,
words just fall short?

well that's how it was.

coming back down is always a bit difficult for me.

i laid in bed this morning and wondered how i
could find a way
to return...

places. . . .

lily loo, canon 20d

we all should have those kind of places..

the places that have a way of removing the layers
that have fogged up our windows.

the places that take us away
from this and that
and him and her
and when and how.

the places where not much matters but the
sun on your face and the music that lingers in the street.

the places where you dont have to do any pretending or performing.

the places where you do whatever you can to return to
in spite of finances, work, schedules, or duties.

the places that make you feel beautiful even though
you feel a bit old.

the places that perhaps saved your broken heart and
made you believe in second chances.

i am off to such a place.

and i will return with beautiful photos and stories to share...
