You do the crime, you pay the time…

I find vintage mug shots to be absolutely intriguing.  Today, the televisions are flooded with police shows; as viewers we get to hear about a persons crime, we get intimate details about what happened, we watch the arrests, hear stories from the families, and even see  how the criminal spends their time in jail.
There is an such a form of mystery to a persons mug shot from years and years past; it’s a crime untold with so many possibilities.  Whatever could they have done??

What is love??

LOVE:  Ive been blessed with love since I was a young girl, yet Im not sure if I could summarize what exactly love means to me in  just one sentence.  I loved this blog by John Mark Ministries and the answers they received when they questioned a group of 4 to 8 year-olds by asking “What does love mean?”

“When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.” Rebecca- age 8

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.” Billy – age 4

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” Terri – age 4

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss” Emily – age 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Bobby – age 7 (Wow!)

“Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.” Noelle – age 7

“During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.” Cindy – age 8

“Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.” Elaine-age 5

“Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Mary Ann – age 4

“I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” Lauren – age 6

“When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” Karen – age 7

“Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.” Mark – age 6

“You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.” Jessica – age 8

To whom do I owe this thanks?

I am unsure of the exact person I owe my utmost gratitude too, but whoever invented grilled cheese sandwiches, you have my deep deep thanks.  For the last four months these delicious cheesy sandwiches have become an absolute staple in our home and without them I am quite sure starvation would be the consequence.  Breakfast, 1am snack, dinner…meh, grilled cheese provides fulfillment any time of the day.  So thank-you trusty GC for filling my tummy in an exceptional manner, thank-you for doubling up with the trusty dill pickle to provide even greater taste-bud satisfaction, and thank you for only needing three ingredients and two minutes of my time; you my friend are brilliance at its finest!

Wild Hearts Cant Be Broken

So I was driving today and for some reason this movie popped into my mind.  Ahhh, I loved it!  This was one of those movies that I could watch over and over as a little girl.  Im pretty certain I would have made a TERRIFIC horse diver…a perfect one actually!

The day you read this…

On this day, you read something that moved you and made you realise there were no more fears to fear. No tears to cry. No head to hang in shame. That every time you thought you’d offended someone, it was all just in your head and really, they love you with all their heart and nothing will ever change that. That everyone and everything lives on inside you. That that doesn’t make any of it any less real.

That soft touches will change you and stay with you longer than hard ones.

That being alone means you’re free. That old lovers miss you and new lovers want you and the one you’re with is the one you’re meant to be with. That the tingles running down your arms are angel feathers and they whisper in your ear, constantly, if you choose to hear them. That everything you want to happen, will happen, if you decide you want it enough. That every time you think a sad thought, you can think a happy one instead.

That you control that completely.

That the people who make you laugh are more beautiful than beautiful people. That you laugh more than you cry. That crying is good for you. That the people you hate wish you would stop and you do too.

That your friends are reflections of the best parts of you. That you are more than the sum total of the things you know and how you react to them. That dancing is sometimes more important than listening to the music.

That the most embarrassing, awkward moments of your life are only remembered by you and no one else. That no one judges you when you walk into a room and all they really want to know, is if you’re judging them. That what you make and what you do with your time is more important than you’ll ever fathom and should be treated as such. That the difference between a job and art is passion. That neither defines who you are. That talking to strangers is how you make friends.

That bad days end but a smile can go around the world. That life contradicts itself, constantly. That that’s why it’s worth living.

That the difference between pain and love is time. That love is only as real as you want it to be. That if you feel good, you look good but it doesn’t always work the other way around.

That the sun will rise each day and it’s up to you each day if you match it. That nothing matters up until this point. That what you decide now, in this moment, will change the future. Forever. That rain is beautiful.

And so are you.

Mio amore…

Stelle Buone by Cristina Dona

Mio amore, ripiegate le labbra
e tornati al colore di prima
guardo fuori ed è l’alba
come fuggono le ore da qui
e ci dobbiamo salutare
c’è un’altra giornata d’amore da preparare

Ho visto solo stelle buone sulla tua pelle
se tornerai domani saprò darti quelle perse
e lascerò che tutto sia sospeso
fino a quando non ci rivedremo

Mio amore
Il tuo cuore è un mare calmo
e non basta una sola notte
per attraversarlo
sono pronta per riaverti ancorato al mio respiro
mentre il sole svanisce
e l’ombra disegna il tuo profilo

Ho visto solo stelle buone

The children of time…

January has issues with her mother, February is always talking about things he wants to do while March does them, April eats sweets and May pays for them, June is the oldest but not the wisest and July always has an opinion on everything. August never stops trying do the right thing, even if he doesn’t always know what that is. September once saw something so sad, she never stopped crying. October holds the lift for anyone, vice-presidents and street-sweepers alike (for his memory, not for theirs) and November makes fun of him for this. December is tired but always hopeful. He has never once stopped believing.

Monday’s obviously a bastard, quite literally as dad can’t remember what or who he was doing. Tuesday’s temperamental but ok as long as you stay on her good side. Wednesday doesn’t say much and Thursday sometimes hums just to break the silence. They’re in love. Friday’s always wasted and she and Saturday hold each other tightly until their delirium fades.

But Sunday, Sunday knows she’s the end. But she closes her eyes, and she pretends with all the strength in her tiny heart that really, she’s the dawn.

Allow me…

And if the summer will allow me, I will stay.
I will take her in, wrapped up in her glory.
Suffocated by sunshine, surronded by warmth.
I will stay, I would stay, forever.
