slight change of plans

the canehdian will be spending 3 months of the summer here now. that's happy news for lots of people here, who are itching to have more time with us - who am i kidding? they want more time with her. the summer will be tons of fun; it is already packed with plans, trips, beaches, parks, roadtrips, flights, shows, you name it, we're going. insanity abounds. did i mention i have a job?

in 3 weeks i will be given the vancouver experience a la danroth. there's nothing like having a handful of enthusiastic canadians ready to show you every possible attraction in 3 days. sunscreen? check. camera? check. tennis shoes? check check check.

2 weeks later, chris gets the georgia experience a la the poss family. who knew we'd get a weekend-long coming out party? this one will require sunscreen, bugspray, tons of wine, and homemade ice cream. check, check, check, check, check.

follow-up report to be presented by christine danroth, who has taken over the photography and authoring responsibilities since i've become a lush. thanks honey.

thank you jonathon larson

why is it that the words are more profound with the music behind them? why do they feel so incriminating when you weigh them against your own existence? why does it feel so wrong to believe in them, but not live them?

recently my aunt pam told me my mother has always been unhappy. that she is just an unhappy person; always wanting what she cannot have...thinking if she could just have a bigger house, more luxurious trips, a better car, she will be happy. funny, i'd never even considered it, but it is entirely true. and i fear that i have adopted that way of life from her. i can't really remember one instance where i was not 100% focused on what i wanted in the future, what i was trying to get next. and i hate that. so change it, right? one of many changes that need to occur in my life. okay.

p.s.

for those who have been trying to access chris' blog to no avail, go here.

i miss

















































my sister. we haven't seen each other since christmas. since we both went off to college, our talks and visits have grown further apart. before that, she practically lived with me at uga. we've become different people, i think. she's grown up. i don't recognize her sometimes, literally. the most changing she's done has been from the inside out. i tiptoed around the conversation when i came out to her, afraid of her reaction, worried that the past few years of separation might become permanent. she'd said homophobic things in my presence in the past, we'd grown apart a bit, for the first time in 20 years. it scared me. i cried through her entire response, which happened to be the sweetest words i'd heard in years. my heart has always swelled with more pride for her than i could keep inside. today i i feel like i need more hearts, a bigger soul, another me, to contain all the love and respect i have for my family and friends. we are long overdue for something fun. maybe six flags is calling our names. it is now open on the weekends. yeah. six flags.

i want one of these. really, REALLY want one of these. did i mention that? oh yes, i did. back at christmas. no such sweetness under my tree. maybe another year.

meredith gets it

Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.
