Okay, lve these lyrics. My walls need some decorating!
"Coast of Carolina", Jimmy Buffett (Licence to Chill)
Little roadside restaurant we artfully complain
Groovy tells the waitress that his chicken died in vain
Most every day goes by according to design
I live this dream and still it seems I have you on my mind
From the bottom of my heart
Off the coast of Carolina
After one or two false starts
I believe we found our stride
And the walls that won't come down
We can decorate or climb
Or find some way to get around
Cause I'm still on your side
From the bottom of my heart.
I can't see the future
But I know it's coming fast
It's not that hard to wind up knee-deep in the past
There come alot of Mondays
Since that phone booth that first night
Tears and miles and years and smiles
I wanna get it right.
These days I get up about the time I used to go to bed
Living large was once the deal
Now I watch the stars instead
They're timeless and predictable
Unlike most things that I do
I tell the wind and my old friend
I'm headed home to you.
Recently, I went vegan, so unfortunately I can't actually EAT these but I can sure love and appreciate them from afar. Seriously sinful... cookie dough INSIDE a cupcake! Amen, godlike! Sounds a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Get the recipe here: allrecipes.com. The author stresses to make sure you put in frozen dough so don't skip that step. Enjoy!
A great quote from the movie American Beauty. A thought worth keeping somewhere in the front of your mind.
"It's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once and it's too much - My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax - and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain, and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life."
Just having one of those weeks. No matter how I rationalize and try to apply logic, my emotions won't take it in. It is okay to feel, to give up control, right?
I suppose I should add a Fab Find...
How about Amos Lee? I recently discovered this singer/songwriter and am loving his work.
My 72 year old mother is cooler than me. She's constantly emailing me "stuff" she uncovers from her iPad. I don't even own an iPad.
Her most recent email (after the one about circus freaks), was an online article from the Huffington Post about the new Kat Von D clothing line.
Lots of fab, unexpected details and I have to admit I love a lot of it. A couple pics below. There was only a slide show that I can't embed, link below:Slideshow:
Kat Von D's New Clothing Line Looks Surprisingly ... Normal
I LOVE this dress!
Live's "The Dolphin's Cry" played in my headphones today at the gym and it seemed to say so much. An excerpt from the end...
life is like a shooting star
it don't matter who you are
if you only run for cover, it's just a wast of time
we are lost 'til we are found
this phoenix rises up from the ground
and all these wars are over
