"It seems to have been the beginning of everything. The treasures of a new, beautiful world were laid at my feet and I took in pleasure and information at every turn. I lived myself into all things.
I was never still a moment. My life was as full of motion as those little insects that crowd a whole existence into one brief day. I met many people who talked with me by spelling into my hand-and thought in joyous sympathy leaped up to meet thought-and behold a miracle had been wrought-the barren places between my mind and the minds of others blossomed like the rose."

-Helen Keller, The Story of My Life

Dead Man's Bones cover.

So.. how many of you are aware that actor Ryan Gosling has a band?
Dead Man's Bones...

(fronted by him and another actor, Zach Shields.)

It's sort of a spooky/gospely/showtunes-ish type band..
I have no idea how to peg it, but this album is SO good.
Children's choir and everythang! You should go buy it.

Here's my rendition of their song "Lose Your Soul"...Happy Halloween! oh wait.

PS: listen to the original version here.

Much like snow or candlelight, fog makes everything prettier.

the Sunday before last

i'm still looking into it,
but something unusual and very scary happened to me the other morning..
(in complete sobriety)

i woke up with incredible pain in my abdomen.

i was clammy, pouring cold sweats.

i started ripping layer after layer of my winter PJ's off. hearing went out.

and then... my vision started fading.

i started praying because i thought i was dying!

i began to try and weave my way through the house for help.

then it happened...
two giant glowing-white beings hovered above me, ready to take me to glory.

but then my eyes refocused and i realized,

i had fainted by the washing machine and dryer.

one of my battle wounds from the fall.

like a children's book depiction of The Great Flood,

there's always more to the story.

I looked down and noticed three different Tree references on my bed...

There was a time when this would've put stars in my eyes.

but I don't know what to do with synchronicity anymore.
