Hilary Pecis is my new jam


i am hypnotized by the barrel of rain being poured on my house. the water keeps coming and it’s like magic to my ears. goosebumps on my arms. dog snoozing on the couch. screen door allows me to hear every drop.

friend got married, lovely, new beginnings. other friendships kindled with extra kindling. i became truant when laziness seeped into my skin on a sunday morning. i did not go to class but celebrated the holy day with sacred mexican breakfast and love. yesterday i visited my grandmother. she gave me all of her embroidery thread and other notions of cross-stitching goodness. need to see her more and more. and i have time right now. i have time for lots of things. things i should be doing. oh lord, i have to write a paper that’s due today.

off to the coffeeshop to get cracked out on caffeine and be productive!

one of my biggest personal flaws? impatience.

i want things, i want things done, and i want it all now. i am learning to take things a step at a time, but the pleasure i get from crossing something of my never-ending list is so great that i wonder if i will ever truly learn to be in the moment, enjoy the process, and all those other things that require patience and the chillaxity of not being in control. that’s right, chillaxity.

having an uncertain future in the realm of employment has been a real turning point for me. things are up in the air. i can’t control everything – each new day presents new opportunities, new obstacles.

so, i’m learning to let go. a little bit at a time.

but. i’d still like to do it: now.
