It might be raining where you are, or it might be raining here. There would be an incredible stillness in the air ... words we wanted to speak, but didn't, or couldn't, or weren't able to say.

This space between us stretches for an instant, and then envelopes us. We don't have to explain everything, or anything. We are lost, together.

I am full of wanton punctuation and syntax, and sometimes, the shocking lack of either. I am told that I am obsessed with beauty. It's true. I make jewellery. I practice yoga. I love looking at bright colours, especially blues and turquoises and such. I prefer lowercase to uppercase.

Life is more than a series of tupperware parties, candle parties, casseroles, potlucks, coffee clutches, mortgage payments, taxes, putting bills in envelopes, SASE, cutting the grass, getting the car washed, going to the dentist, buying groceries, doing the dishes, watercooler talk, cubicle hell. Life is a place where the air is full of spices, dappled shade, cool drinks, exotic fruit, dangerous breezes, swordplay at dawn, and where everyone dances cheek to cheek.

Anything can happen, there.

Please say hello in a comment if you would like to be added or are just feeling like saying hi. Otherwise, I might not notice if you just add me. I'm a bit of a spaz.

If you notice I'm using one of your icons, and have not credited you, please drop me a line to let me know.

"'Whether this is my end or a new beginning I have no way of knowing: I have given myself over into the hands of strangers, because it can't be helped.

And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light.'"

The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood

And the day came
when the risk to remain tight
in a bud
was more painful
than the risk
it took
to blossom.

Anais Nin
