Where I am.

Good morning!!

I'm still in bed which is incredibly rare for me as I've always been an early riser. The white ground and extremely chilly air makes me want to stay wrapped in blankets with coffee, my computer and a book, letting my active mind take over and drown in words and ideas.

"Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.  
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry."
-Mark Strand

To me, there is nothing better than words....

except perhaps

... and MUSIC.  Right now I'm in love with this this GORGEOUS Postal Service cover by Birdy that I haven't been able to get enough of lately.  Her voice is so beautifully haunting, it literally shuts out the rest of the world.  I've also always loved this song.  Swoon. Have a lovely day. :)

"Nobody has ever measured, not even poets
how much the heart can hold."
-Zelda Fitzgerald

"Smeared black ink... your face is ashen
And I'm barely listening to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath
Where I am
Where I am
I'll wear my badge... a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends I am a visitor here
I am not permanent.
And the only thing keeping me dry here is
Where I am"
