happy new year :)

Someone asked me why I hide my more recent posts and even pointed out that my last public entry was posted a year ago.  Checking the date referred to, I was momentarily astounded when it registered that two weeks will mark the day when I learned to make a huge bucket of lemon juice out of the lemons that life threw my way.

Growing up, I associated the months of July and August with bleak, rainy mornings and cloudy afternoons.  For a girl born in sunny and crisp March, nothing great could come out of July and August.  Now, they mark the beginning of a new and better juncture in my life. July 31, 2011 has become the beginning of many things for me.  Who I am now, what I've become, and where I would be in the coming years were decided by that single, inopportune day in bleak and rainy July. 

And I could not be more thankful for it. ;)

i will never forget.

"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, 'O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless... of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?' Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?" - John Keating

musings before bed

When I was 14 years old, my heart broke over Jo March's rejection of Teddy Laurence's proposal.  Eleven years later, I realized Laurie was pathetic - all unrequited love are. But the ache is still there, considerably dulled by years.  

True, with age comes wisdom, but we are none the wiser when it comes to matters of the heart.
