Lost Verses

Three, Two, One…

Thoughts run together–hear the roar of a crowd
Wake, inhale influences, reach for coffee in that chipped cup
Must run when dreams run long 8:29 is here, then gone.

Moments jolt like random jets
sprinkling the lawn when no one’s home.

Stand at the door keep checking a watch
How many years can it go before someone sets off
in the middle of the street?

Just wait–e x p l o d e.

Boxes

For years you’ve been packing emotions in tiny boxes. What are you afraid of? Does it come from a dream? Some long forgotten dream? Seeded deep in your mind is a metal fan catching fire, Bigfoot stomping down Broadway and a place where boys and girls can float up and down knobby apple trees…Where did those years go? How many boxes surround you now? Some boxes can even carry the sweat and blood of memories into the next life.
But where is that?

Tune Out

It never happened
You never reached it
Hands outstretched
Your melody completed

Found Verse

I can’t go on
With everyone
Disappearing
Every phantom
Memory I keep
Peels lifetimes away
Here it is…

Original version of ‘Boxes’

For years you’ve been packing those emotions in tiny plastic boxes. What are you afraid of? You can’t confront it. Instead you run upstairs and slam the door, escaping imaginary beasts below.

Does it come from a dream? Some long forgotten dream? Seeded deep in your mind is a metal fan catching fire, Bigfoot stomping down Broadway and boys and girls that float up and down knobby apple trees.

Where did those years go? How many boxes surround you now? What happens when all you love is lost? Then, you’re left with just the boxes. Boxes that carry the sweat and blood of your memories into the next life.

But where is that?

Back in the Web

I’ve been gone for a moment or two (in the grand scheme of my internet life) but a few months seems like far too long to go between blog entries! I’m finally connected to the interweb and though my stats may be down, they didn’t disappear. If I dive back in now who knows where 2016 may take me?

In 2015 I moved out of my hometown for the first time (90 miles away) and I plan to see a lot more of the world from now on…

For now, I hope you will enjoy these images I snapped before, during and slightly after my big move to Dubuque!

 

June Turns to July | Photo Update!

My garden is growing slowly and I’m settling in. There certainly have been roadblocks but I’m not about to give up now. This is the time to finish up all loose ends in Iowa before I start a new adventure.

In the meantime, I’ll be walking in the woods, catching up with friends, saying goodbye.

Just think, by next month I could be living in another state writing about a totally foreign experience. I will be sure to update soon ;)

New Sprouts in a New Place

I moved into a new (temporary) place and have started my traveling garden! I was so busy that I missed blogging last month entirely so I thought I should give you a tiny update. The place is owned by my good friend (and we stole her rhubarb from another friend last year) I will take more photos once I finished getting settled (for now!)

Denver Zoo — Springtime!

I had a blast! Look for a video (coming soon) that shows much more! I highly recommend this zoo: habitats are large, well built, and historical. Large animals are moved around to give them the benefits of habitat sharing. This zoo treats animals very well and is full of great information :)

Off the Rails

Holy moly! My car tried to kill me (blown tire on the highway) then my boss assassinated me (my position that is)

It seems I may end up where I wanted to be sooner than expected. I’m counting on landing the perfect job in Denver! I’m visiting this weekend for my birthday, the last year of my twenties. I have butterflies in my stomach but oddly they aren’t unwelcome. I’m being propelled toward an unknown future and it could be… fantastic!

I Knew It Would Happen Eventually…

I forgot to blog last month! Dang you February, always throwing me off with your shortness. What gives? Anyhow, here I am a few days late with not much new to report. I’ve been working and driving on these crazy winter roads dreaming of my move across the country that will hopefully occur in a few short months!

Here is at least one decent shot I took recently… I NEED a new camera… but that will have to wait until after the move I think…
