Piece of a second...

"There is a piece of a second
during which a jet is not flying
nor is it on the ground.

I'm working on a theory
that no one can die
inside that piece of a second.

If you are comforted
by this thought you are welcome
to keep it."

- excerpt from Her my body by Bob Hicok

This is the first but definitely not the last time I mention Bob Hicok in this here blog! He is my absolute favorite poet. I read and reread his work all the time, always finding something new, something different. He is ever inspiring.

In keeping with that, I made a photo collection of things that made me happy this week! 
+ Live music. All the time please! Trevor Hall.
+ New block print in the making. Hooray!
+ I was invited to sell work on the beautiful Fey Handmade.
+ Banana muffins. Need I say more?
+ Strawberries in chocolate with w. 
+ The sun shining in on my "apartment garden!" I'm loving that the sun is setting later! 

Do tell me what made you happy this week! Or what you look forward to for the week to come...

Snowmageddon's Hidden Victim...

Just wanted to share my frozen oil picture. It seems as though one shouldn't accidentally leave oil in the trunk of the car when it's below freezing outside. Touche, winter, touche. Actually though, I think the color is rather pretty! I'm glad I snapped a picture, it defrosted really quickly :)

Dear Coffee, I love you...

Every now and then I freak out and decide to quit coffee. I think I reach the point of being really addicted, you know, getting headaches when I don't drink it, thinking about it when I'm not drinking it, the whole shebang. Then I get upset that I rely on it so much and I decide, that's it, no more! There are two problems with this quitting coffee thing, though. The first is that I legit love the taste of coffee! (This part seemed solvable enough- Decaf!) The second problem is that I love being addicted to coffee! Fail! The only way to fix that is to get over it (booo) or to cave in and endlessly enjoy the caffeinated goodness that is coffee. 

So its decided then. I'm over quitting coffee. Plus, lets be honest, caffeinated coffee looks way better in my product photos (see below) than decaf does, am I right? :::wink wink:::
