-Hola, Néih hóu, Bula, Bonjour, Aloha, Konnichi wa, Mogethin, Kia Ora, Hi-
No matter what your language, cadence, or creed, I'm glad you're here =)

"She's tired of flat lands and cornfields, Seashells traced in snow. She wants more bugs on her windshield, She don't want to go alone...She talks about her waterfall fountain, And her house out on the bay. She's in love with broken glass mountains, Fireplace cafes."

Translation, please!

Katt + Netti

 Katt and I were together past midnight, and This is what seems to be the normal occurrence when that happens. We finally recorded the song we wrote on the train [still nameless] - it is messy, but almost pretty =P

And we started writing a new one [ Better Days(for now =P)], so enjoy!

Some moments in my recent life

 ^This is Danna and I going out to get sandbags in Cali - where it rained and rained and raaaaained =P

 ^Picture of another train while on the train - this was mostly for my Dad's benefit...he likes trains =)

 This is the Santa Barbara train station, I just thought it was a cool building

 ^ This is Thor, Dog of Thunder. The family pet and guardian of the Castle

 ^ This is what my brother considers good eatin'

 ^ This is my wee sister, this is what I sometimes look like when she gets home from school <3

 ^Taken from the train, how pretty is that?!

^ Same as above

There you have it, a few pictures all taken by my phone =P with the exception of the pizza one...that was taken on my brother's phone and sent to me =P

Anyhow, homework time - fuuuuuunnn.

No More Secrets for You, Dear.

I am so very tired right now. Probably because I couldn't sleep last night and decided to do homework til 2am instead. On the other hand, that was probably the best sleep I've had in a while - until it was interrupted by my darling brother yelling about something at 8:30am -_-

Oh well, Cest' la vie.

Anyhow, I'm taking poetry again this term - not retaking it, just to clarify. Since I took it last term, this go around I get to take Advanced Poetry - oolala.

So I wrote something last night, that I will probably try to use for class, but I will probably have to rearrange so it works in a different form. Which is really just peachy with me because I definitely feel like this is unfinished.

But regardless, here is the newest addition to my poetry, enjoy =)

No More Secrets for You, Dear
Spring break found me in several new places, this train being one.
On the way home- clickety clacking across wet tracks and miserable
Valleys steeped in beauty. Watching the hills rise and fall,
Staring at cows and deer and rabbits and gray sky- and circling birds

Watching the creatures rule the sky, and descend on the earth, I
Finally see what draws them away from their gray tinted freedom.
Flesh, red and warm, split and criss-crossed and marking death
Splayed apart and steaming in the chilled air, ripped open.

No more secrets for that deer
No more secrets for you, Dear

No more hiding, no more buried heart
No more alone, no more stitched together
Rip them out, Dear, tear them out – leave the strands here
At my feet or in my hands, I want to see you splayed apart

I want to see your unhidden heart
I want to see your deep breathing lungs bringing in life
Snip out the stitches, live as you are. Show us your heart, Love
Oxygen brings life, brings a quicker healing

So just like the deer, hoof marking its death
Raise your hands- scream that you are here
Because the vultures won’t get to you, they won’t make it
Past this heart, past my heart – so

No more secrets for that deer
No more secrets for you, Dear

Music fans click here =)

I put a link to my friend a couple of blogs ago, but he just posted a couple new ones and I think a second link is totally reasonable =P

 So, this is my Friend Nick - he is cool, you will most likely love him <3
[my favorites are Blues Fever(his cover of Fever), Eyes, and Get Offa me. But they're all really very good]

I sometimes am creative...

Ok, so I wrote a couple new songs - I'm going to post one here because I feel like my blog gets less traffic than my Facebook =P

I appreciate feedback, but believe you me, I am aware how much room I have to grow =P

Sooooo here is a link to The Darkest Light, by me...yesterday =P

I believe you have to download it, but I'm not sure - either way you can always delete it once it's done.

Thanks for listening! <3
