Sometimes what I put on Pandora in the morning — as I muck about lighting candles, settling in for some quiet reflection, etc — is Zero 7. Songs roll through like “just breathe” and Jem’s “save me” – perfect vibe to get things rolling, later in the day, down at the office I will likely switch to Macy Gray station — poor Kaitlyn, sharing space with an old lady — she reaches for her headphones and plugs them in.
Life is feeling so good right now– yes, it is cold but the SUN. I am writing to you sitting in a fat shower of sunshine pouring down on my head and as many of you know– this is how I charge my batteries. Am solar powered, for sure.
Loving on this brand new site: lolmythesis freaking brilliant. Just began in December but I have no doubt it will rocket to success and this time next year will have a book coming out .. . a couple of my favorites:
Intellectualizing seemingly petty high school experiences: a memoir.
– Creative Writing, The New School
– Communication, Wilfrid Laurier University
Prehistoric people liked to party down by the river
– Geographic Information Systems, University of Redlands
So if Person A is like “[blah blah blah]” and Person B is like “Oh, you mean like [yada yada yada]?” and Person A is like “No, I mean [blah blah blah]” and Person B is like “Nah, bro, I’m pretty sure you mean [yada yada yada]”, Person B is being both philosophically unsound and a dick.
– Philosophy, Middlebury College
In other news, the night before last I made the batter for “the life-changing loaf of bread” above and then baked it yesterday morning. Although it did not change my life (yet) oh dear lord, it was good.
And? is there anything better than the smell of baking bread first thing on a winter morning?
I took no photos (and rest assured, if I had, they would not look 1/10th as elegant as Sarah’s above) — but wanted to share . . I went the sweeter route, used coconut oil, added cinnamon and dried wild cherries, but could totally see doing it again savory using olive oil. Oh, wait– last note, I didn’t use hazelnuts. I substituted walnuts cause that’s what I had.
So much going on– and am out of time to write– so I will just send you to the Magic of Myth Pinterest board where people are pinning stuff that makes me so happy! Inspiration rolling at me all day long– love it.
