Before Tequila

She hears the word tequila and a wry smile forms on her face. She doesn’t care what the reason if tequila is involved, she’s in! There’s just one little problem…when it comes to tequila she doesn’t know when to quit. Dun dun dunnnnn….you might want to check back on her later…there’s bound to be a…

Walking The Birds

People looked at her strangely as she and her cat paraded about carrying birds that would fly about only to return to their perches upon them. She didn’t find it at all strange to take her birds for a walk and neither did her cat. Even the other birds would look at them strangely, but…

Come Back When We Open

She had come in early to do some rehearsing. Just as she sat down to text her room mate about tonight’s show, she saw him in the doorway, “Come back when we open, unless you just want a drink. The bar out front is open, but its dancers only back here for now.” He just…

When the Smoke Clears

I have had an insane week and it looks like I’ve got another one ahead of me, but I know that once things settle down and the smoke clears I’m going to come out the other side breathing fresher air and feeling so much better. That’s just how it is sometimes, isn’t it? We just…

Night Air

There’s just something magical about night air, particularly around 9pm. The dark sky, the shadows, the temperature is dropping, and a perfect night would have a nice cool breeze. I can only assume that my fondness for this time of night has to do with my memories of working at the mall in my very…

Do Not Be Afraid

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” ― Plato Wow, it has been quite a while since I started post with a quote. Of course, one is never quite sure what they will find when they go to…

Morning Meditation

Last year when I was going through a particularly rough time, my friend Charlotte gave me a non religious meditation book. Those are surprisingly hard to find in my area. Anyway, its one of my favorite ways to start the day. Reading the daily meditation with a cup of coffee and…*hangs her head*…a cigarette. So,…

The Edge

Its a music blog. Why? Because the world makes me sad and the lyrics to this song have really been weighing heavy on my mind lately. So, I’ll provide you with the link and this time, just a few of the lyrics. You can look up the rest if you feel so inclined. I don’t…

Justify My Love

That’s right, I’m going with one of the sexiest songs of all time. Of course, I’m providing the lyrics and a YouTube link. Madonna Justify My Love I want to kiss you in Paris I want to hold your hand in Rome I want to run naked in a rainstorm Make love in a train…

Rescued

They say that dogs are a man’s best friend, and of course the term man is used quite loosely…as in mankind, humans. It was certainly true for her. No person could make her smile the way her sweet Puppers did. She could be completely herself. Her dog loved her at her worst and at her…

Not THAT Song

“Not THAT song!” she ripped the headphones from her head. It had been such a good day until that song kicked on…this is what she gets for putting her library on random play while she got dressed. That song would always rip at her heart. That song would always bring tears to her eyes. That…

Wheels

She had been skating since she was in the first grade. She could skate before she even learned how to ride a bike. There was something so free about having wheels under her feet, almost as if she could fly. When she skated she felt free. As a kid she would lose herself in the…
