Happy being someone.



Good evening....


I just wanted to pop in and say hello and happy July!! I hope you had a great 4th  and you got to do the things you enjoy with the people you love... simply enjoying being someone. I'd also like to add on an unrelated note that I'm completely disgusted by today's Casey Anthony verdict. Sometimes a girl just wants to believe in the power of true justice but I suppose if that's not possible in this moment, at least we can still believe in the powers of effort, tea, wisdom, energy, old books, chocolate, karma, love, music, possibility, the ocean, radiance, ancient trees, summer and hope.

And sleep. So, so ready for sleep.

I love this song by Faded Paper Figures, as it instantly puts me in 
that sweet summer state of mind.



"North by north— lest we have to settle down
we can sail without the wind in this town
Things that London never saw
Northern winters start to thaw;
To islands on the sea,
lands I’ve never seen,
things will get calmer—follow me.

You said a long long time ago
you were happy being someone
Let's go far far far from home
I'll be glad to be with someone

Land pneumonia, your engines in repair;
plant begonias, and orchids in your hair.
Continents all made of clay
Dreamers leaving every day
To islands on the sea,
lands I’ve never seen,
things will get calmer—follow me.

Someone told me you had oceans in your eyes
Cold as shadows over European skies
Coasting out the shallow day
Leaving London in decay
To islands on the sea,
lands I’ve never seen,
things will get calmer—follow me."



Sweet dreams.
