send me the moon

i wrote about this last night at the blog next door…but this was just too beautiful not to share with everyone 🙂
If you know me at all, you would know that i am in love with the night.

the moon and the stars…the quiet and the stillness.

I wish i had a high tech camera to capture the beauty of the moon…but really, i think this picture is just beautiful as is.

All the while i had Sara Bareilles going over and over in my head.

Send Me The Moon

Holding my breath
Last one I’ve got left
’til I see you

Deliver my heart with the
Pieces and parts of me left
Every last day seemed to carry the weight
A life time
Watch from the ground
As the gold fluttered down from the sky

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view

Inches away from you
Scared what I’ll take from you, darling
I can live with your ghost
If you say that’s the most I’ll get

Darkness to light
Moved from day into night to be near you
Still here I stand
I am sinking like sand in your sea

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view

You already do
Never you mind where the evening should find us
Distance can’t take what is hidden here
Safe in my chest

I’ll wait for the day when
We finally say now or never
Till then I’ll be here wanting more
As I settle for at most fear

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view
Of view

bye bye fat pants

i refer to my fat pants often in this blog.
can i explain what they are?

they simply are pajama bottoms.
that’s it.
they are the pants that i lounge around the house in…and often sleep in at night.

the pants i regularly refer to were purchased specifically for my trip out west to visit my bff in 2009

they are just basic gray fuzzy pants with draw strings.
simple and baggy and comfortable…especially on a fat day.
back in 2009 i didn’t even need to tie them around my waist…they were just a perfect fit.

fast forward to Friday night…or i guess i should say early Saturday morning.
i awoke in the middle of the night…as i do every single night.
4am found me awake and stirring in bed.
i decided to get out of bed to grab a drink…since falling asleep right away was out of the question.

Now here’s a visual….if you become easily aroused please stop reading.

i crawled outta bed….with the most perfect bed head.
one eye open…and one eye completely shut…as this is my come hither look at 4 am.
anyways…i started to walk down the hallway…and after a few steps
my fat pants were around my ankles.

i bent over and grabbed the waist of my pants and pulled them up
as i did not want to walk by my huge window bare assed for the world to see…
i grabbed a drink and headed back to bed…pants once again falling to my ankles
i stepped outta them and in to bed.
i made a mental note that my number one priority come Saturday was to purchase new “fat pants”
and then fell asleep.

and so, i have come here to announce that my fat pants have been retired
they will be put into a good will bag for someone else to enjoy

i sit here and type this in my brand spanking new smaller fat pants

candy striped pants, with a red spider man t-shirt
happier than a pig in shit
life is good.

a vision of beauty my friends…a vision of beauty..

taking back the night

those of you who know me know….that i am a night creature
i love the night
the night is when i feel most awake, most energetic, most creative
i always do my best writing at night.
when i was younger (and stupid) i would go for long walks
i would wander over to the lake at 2am…and just walk.
i would never do that today…as i get older, the fear of what could happen is very real.
I would take my cocker spaniel for long walks…even though he was cute and small…i still felt safe with him for my late night walks.
and then he passed away…and slowly the late night walks ended.
i’ve been walking lately…with elle bee and the puppy…and have realized how much i miss it
walking in the night…when things are quiet…
and so last night i did it on my own.
well not on my own…but with the dog.
My dog is 11.  she trips over her own legs…she doesn’t see that great and her hearing is not so hot either.
Basically if i were in any sort of trouble…i would be SOL.
But you know what?  she’s a dalmatian.  if i didn’t know her…i wouldn’t mess with her!
oddly enough i feel extremely safe with her beside me…i took my cell with me just incase.
So we went for a walk.  it felt awesome.  it was a 40 min walk…but if she wasn’t with me i am sure i could have done it in half an hour…
she certainly taught me patience and how important it is to take it easy and stop to smell the roses (or other dog pee)
it was great.
i then came home and just relaxed…feeling accomplised.
a 45 minute work out and a 40 min walk.
i reclaimed the night…and it feels amazing!!!
