i haven't played SPF in months, so i'm making my own self portrait saturday, even though in one hour it will be sunday. play if you want to.

an obssessive habit of someone i know (2-for-1 baby):

a pouting photo from childhood:

an uncooperative kid:

a lesson courtesy of someone with no qualifications to teach:

someone i miss terribly:

emotions run splattered

oh, i am a lonely painter
i live in a box of paints
i'm frightened by the devil
and i'm drawn to those ones
that ain't afraid

i remember that time you told me,
you said, 'love is touching souls'
surely you touched mine 'cause
part of you pours out of me
in these lines from time to time

oh canada

i never thought i could fall in love with a place the way i did last week. at day 5, i cried because i didn't want to leave. on the flight, i cried because the direction i was headed in no longer felt like home. it felt so wrong. i've never felt so accepted, so welcomed, so naturally suited to be in a country that is not where i was born.

heart melting
fear resting
resolve strengthening
eye opening
life affirming

it was all those things
4 me
