Gratitudes + things that are making me happy

Untitled

• the gift of a lovely new teapot

• getting to see my sister and her family for Christmas

• long handwriting sessions

• the clarity that a single word can bring when it's the descriptor you need

• introducing my two-year-old niece to Xena: Warrior Princess early one morning when it was just the two of us

• Malbec and good memories

• mess

• being able to pay this month's credit card bill

• being awake today to see the full moon sink into the dawn clouds 

• atmospheric music videos

• growing older

Which word?

Mess. Hear, hear.

What music videos...? ♥

sui - "Shame." I'm so into the "Video Games" video...(and song).

I like the picture of #5 :)

Erin - I was elated. She didn't really follow it but she would make little comments. "Hitting! Hitting!" for fight scenes and "Oh no!" for dramatic music or when someone got hurt.

Finding a word! Single greatest feeling.

Jenica - It makes everything easier, even if nothing else changes, to at least understand . Words are good for that. <3

that is a good word.

hahaha... joy and i once talked about lana del rey (LDR = long distance relationships...? nup...) and how i refer to her music mainly as "whiny patriarchal music." hahaha! i hadn't seen the video yet, though. i like her song "blue jeans," too, but she is quite a bit whiny (and have you heard "this is what makes us girls"...? just awful...)

quan used to sing her songs all the time in the myrtle/sexyhaus apartment over the summer, though. haha (:

sui - yeah, it's patriarchal but sometimes in a depressed self-aware way and sometimes in a really groovy-sounding way? haha, i like him for that...

Cheray - it's a good 'un, and i feel like it goes both ways -- i write more gratitude lists when i'm already feeling well, you know? x
