drums love

have we talked about the drums? the thing is, my friend heath's brother is the drummer (and also a mini-heath, but with poofier hair). but the other thing is, they're really really good.

thought for today: the wind in the wheat

"My life is very monotonous," the fox said. "I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . ."

(from my favorite book, The Little Prince)

  • a blonde redhead concert (gina wore her fanny pack)
  • fancy dinner at lula's (beets for everyone!)
  • and an afternoon of discount shopping (and too-late-in-the-day-coffee drinking)

meg & ro

many congratulations to meg and ro, who were married in a stunning and personal sunset ceremony on the beach on 10/10/10

"Take me to the places on the earth that teach you how to dance,
the places where you can risk letting the world break your heart.
And I will take you to the places where the earth beneath my feet
and the stars overhead make my heart whole again and again."
