Carpe diem


“Dear normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you in quest for a more rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I can, for it may not always be so. One day I will dig my nails into the earth, or bury my head into a pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want more than all the world, your return”

– beautiful words, unknown source.

i miss writing. expressing. being one with the written word.
i want to get a certain ball rolling. something to do with dream chasing, writing, cooking, and channeling my femininity and optimism somewhere.
can i call this place my home?
i will certainly try as my thoughts need a place to escape to from time to time.
