Let us not live our lives as though within bookends. It's not sinful to welcome new numbers, but 2017 can be just the same as 1999, but we have grown, we will grow, and grow some more. So here's to which ever year you wish it to be.
Nervous. Tired. Makes me emotional and unusually weird. I some how thought I'd be soothed by Whole Foods? Nah, I just made a stop but not really knowing where I was wandering. In a haze. So, there I am at the checkout with Pineapples, Purple Carrots, Cucumbers, Rambutans, and Coconut Water. Um. Yeah. The cashier looks unfamiliar to me. I hear the guy telling the woman he's ringing up, that it's his second day working there. The woman says, "Congratulations! " This made me feel good inside to know a person would congratulate someone for starting a new job. I almost got a little teary. Told you. Emotional. When it was my turn to pay, I saw a sign posted that said he is a new employee, so please be patient. Does that make things better or worse for him? It was as if he were in a cage, and we were all spectators, looking at a sign that said "don't feed the bear." Drove home, thinking about how grateful I am to have the right to vote. Thought about a person whom I convinced to vote for the first time. She's 32 and has never voted. She was kind of lax about it, but she became increasingly excited about it as the day moved forward one foot after the other. She's going to earn that sticker that we all love so much. The last thing she said to me was, " I'm going to wear that thing with pride!" THAT definitely prompted some tears. She didn't see them come so don't tell her. Time to take a shower, turn on the telly, and clench. Here we go.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
