Yes, to vivid colours
and excessive photos.
Yes, to soya lattes
and dairy free brownies.
Yes, to thinking outside the box
Yes, to pretty pink ipods
and beat up black converse.
Yes, to fluffy white clouds
and the sun on my face.
Yes, to independant expressive women
and amazing plans.
Yes, to wildness of heart
and take your breath away beauty.
Yes, to freedom immeasurable
and purity of mind.
Yes, to all these things and more.
So much more.
Jotted down one train journey home, one day in April. Photo taken one sunny day in tennessee.
I like it.
I like eating popcorn, watching programmes based in sunny countries, painting stuff, watching films, chatting on the phone to my friends, catching up with some emails.
What can I say. I like it when the boy has business trips. I'm a hermit, needs copious amounts of time to myself, prefers not to wear bras and flush the toilet, kind of gal.
Could I live without my mobile?
My multiple pairs of shoes?
Would living without my mobile involve living without my friends?
Would living without my laptop involve living without my camera?
Would it involve living without the internet?
How would this effect my art?
As it prods and peeps
and refuses to back down.
The halfhearted, mostly
unrefined and covered in fat
I threw it has run out.
And its back. I'm back there.
the truth and the
of life as an undisciple.
The majestic mystery of the potential of
life as freedom,
of a life well lived.
It wants meat,
it wants something that will fulfill it,
and not pet it down with half hearted
fairtrade and pacts that continue
It wants decision,
and a change.
it wants realness and hope and
hand made clothing made by my hand.
It is just waiting for me to jump in two feet.
Hairbands and soap and
hardcore budgets and
Pens and paper and the distant
echo and din of the beep and ring.
It wants passion. And decision.
I ran out of ATC's about 12 ago!

This is not what my blog is about!
This is my customary house keeping entry for the year!
I have a good memory. Usually.
For grabaways I do. So I hadn't forgotten my ATC jelly tot promise to my lovelies. And here they are.
Thanks goes to Krisitina for sending me 10 watercolour ATC blanks, and for this she is the only one who gets to pick her card.
So here they go.
That means there are 3 up for grabs. If anyone would like one just leave me a comment. First come first serve I'm thinking. They can be seen in more detail here.
