the goodness peprally and other random thoughts…

August 4, 2008

1. rise, together we rise, if you believe in redemption…- I’m pretty sure I was the only extremely pregnant person at The National on Saturday to see The Flobots. I was still 10 years too old and 8 months too pregnant to be there but I didn’t even care. The venue was perfect, it has all the charm of old and yet the air inside is filled with the energy of new. The band is young, their hearts so pure, I felt like I was at a peprally for goodness in the world.

2. ready and fresh- I have decided I want to be one of those people (like my husband and my old friend amy o.) who always have sunglasses, chapstick and gum with them at all times. I never have any of those things, so I end up with squinty eyes, chapped lips and dry mouth. Maybe someday I’ll really grow up and start carrying a purse. I’m curious, what things do you always have with you?

3. real love is messy- I was realizing this week how love can not be contained or explained by logic and reason, it just doesn’t work. It will not be tamed, it is messy, passionate and forgiving.

4. kindness strikes again- my dear friend Jenna and her very generous extended family gave us a timeshare this past weekend. It turned out to be a haven and place of major relaxation for not only my family but others I love who really needed it. The givers will never fully know the impact of their kindness I’m sure…may it be returned to them 10 fold.

    I’ve been meaning to thank you for inviting me (through Sarah) to visit your blog! :oD I’m sure you’ve seen the video for Flobots’ “No Handlebars” – gives me chills.

    Love the phrase “ready and fresh”. Purse must-haves: cell, shades, Burt’s Bees chapstick (ooh, tingly), day planner, 4-color pen, notepad for bursts of sudden inspiration, hair tie, Rescue Remedy spray (I think the amusement of spritzing it in my mouth is the real remedy, not the holistic flower essence or whatever)

    your youthful exhuberance knows no age or weeks of gestation.

    the very young don’t even carry a purse 🙂

    you are beautiful youth and by rocking it out you stay younger (but not less pregnant)!

    p.s. Don’t go to the mac store @ the mall — walking through the doors adds 10 years to your life like the proverbial 10 lb camera in Hollywood.
