a small and ordinary life

Thursday, July 24, 2014


This is just a note to say that I am grateful for my small and ordinary life. Grateful for the open window as the breeze shifts through, the warm cup of coffee that I make every morning. Grateful for the kiss Steele gives me before he leaves for work. For the solid quiet that sits in the apartment as I let the minutes tick by until I have to leave as well. 

Also this is to say that I am grateful for the less poetic things as well: the blogs that I read each morning in bed, the dark blue nail polish I've had for years, the digital archive of thoughts and messages. 

And, the fortune that I pulled out of my fortune cookie last night: Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still. 

If ever there was a more appropriate fortune for me. I only had to open all four cookies to get it. ;)
