How I Love You

photo by Helga

I love you so completely. I take my heart out of my chest and run up to you, smiling brightly, eyes aglow, and I place my heart in your hands, like a child offering you their most prized possession. If I love you, you hold all of my heart, every last beautiful beating bit of it. It may happen that you need to set it down in order to tie your shoe (it would be tragic to trip and fall), and you may ask me to hold onto my heart for a moment, but I don't know how and I fumble and it falls and bruises badly. You might look up to see the tears welling up in my 29-year-old-eyes. It's not your fault, you are simply taking care of yourself. I must learn how to hold my own heart.

Sun Please Shine Again

From Jolby & Friends



Last night we watched Fleetwood Mac-Rumors from the Classic Albums series and I have a very new and real appreciation for the band and the album. I think what really sold me was the first soft-focus shot of Stevie Nicks in a peach-colored outfit with the ocean as a backdrop. I can't wait to see all of the other episodes!

One of the greatest things about LA (which I miss dearly) is the inspiration I would feel in the presence of talented, beautiful, motivated humans also known as my friends. In an attempt to recreate the feeling here in Eugene a community blog has been started. Scott, Ian and I are constantly searching for beauty, truth, love and (most importantly) humor. We share with each other, and the world, at Touché.

Fitness Happens

What should have been a 13 mile bike ride turned into a very sweaty 23 mile bike ride. If you plan to run errands on a bike in Eugene, remember to bring a map. Luckily, I had my shiny new bike computer to entertain me!

Total Distance: 23.09 mi
Total Time: 1:52:59
Average Speed: 12.26 mi/hr
Max Speed: 25.13
Bike rides w/ bike computer: 10x more awesome

Color Full

I was admiring this lovely color combo of pen on dictionary, when I noticed my scarf had the same thing goin' on. Huh. Nice.
