A Letter

Dear you,

Hi. Remember me? I remember you. I still think about you from time to time. Mainly wondering how you're doing and if your life is what you'd imagined. To be honest, I don't think mine is exactly how I imagined, but I don't necessarily think of that as a bad thing. With time, things change. Goals change, opinions change and loves change. One thing I wonder about occassionally, and probably because there's a lot going on in my head, is what would have happened if you would have waited. Just a little longer. I didn't want you to wait for me forever, that wouldn't have been fair or nice. I just needed a little more time. Time to grow up a little. And time to recognize what I already knew. But that was then and this is now. Regardless of it all, I hope you're well. And happy. And most of all, I hope you've found exactly what you were looking for.

Love always.

Spring Has Sprung

Hi guys,

First, I'm sorry for the long hiatus. I don't have a real solid excuse, but I just haven't been feeling the creative juices to write. They've all been commandeered and directed in different directions. But I think they are slowly sneaking back.

A few things I've been thinking about:
1. Grease 2 is an awesome movie. The song lyrics are especially catchy. As I was flipping through the channels before bed last night I happened to stumble across it and it instantly brought a smile to my face.
2. I hit my head. A lot. Probably more times in a week than either of my baby nephews who are almost two and almost one, respectively. Just this morning, I managed to bang my head on the top of the refrigerator. Not a good way to start the day.
3. Last night, I went to Lunafest with one of my girlfriends. For those of you that may not know what Lunafest is, it's a traveling film festival that is "by, for, and about women." I've found myself saying "by, for, and about women" far too often the last few days when referring to this festival. Mainly because I think it's funny.
4. The closing film of the festival was about this cute little 81-year-old lady that lived in a desert in the US somewhere. One of the things she said really caught my attention: "If you're going to have a happy life, enjoy all your nows."

I plan on enjoyng all my nows a little more from now on.
