say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime

movies i've seen...

  • "time traveler's wife"
  • "500 days of summer"
  • "my blueberry nights"
  • "harry potter and the half-blood prince"
  • "sunshine cleaning"

    movies to see...

  • "paper heart"
  • "the phantom of the opera"
  • "speak"
  • "adam"
  • "pan's labryinth"

    i bought a plant and i have some fresh cut irises sitting on my desk. i am so excited to be surrounded by so much life!

    summer is coming to a close and i force myself to wear dresses or hold off on putting a sweater on at dusk. i revel in the long days and am doing the most to stay present and enjoy what i have left of summer. in the meantime, i frolic.

    tender scrawls
    on love

    (1 January 2002)
    I gave you my heart
    And you took it.
    If we shall part,
    Please do not discard it.
    Because even if we are not
    Because we did not last
    I would still give you my love.

    * incubus at the hollywood bowl on july 13!

    * asking a guy to dance
    * dancing ballet folklorico with my students!
    * harry potter and the half-blood prince - 2 times!
    * kelly clarkson at the pacific ampitheatre! right behind the pit!
    * my brother bob coming home for 1.5 weeks, leaving on august 4th.
    * giving my card to a guy i'm interested in
    * a summer night on the backyard deck with a bottle of wine, apples, chips, good music, and good friends helping me with lesson plans!
