beauty is everywhere at the moment. leaves are filling in winter's skeletons. tulips sing spring alive. gathering my own strength too, inspired by ancient divine.

birds with a unique soundtrack

dN spotted some birds sneaking into our attic from a crack outside. he decided to leave an old ghetto blaster on up there to see if the music and chatter scares them away. we will see if this does the trick. we have new musical guests i suppose.

my life as frenchie

it's no secret I have not been a fan of fakebook. i have held out on the hype for what feels like forever. but, recently i needed an account for a project at work. the only way, in my mind, was to go undercover. i am now estelle sleuth (a.k.a frenchie). if you read the blog you are in the circle so if you want to share photos of your kids and such i will be your friend. kids seem immune to the fakebook rules somehow, i applaud those who can live out loud so bravely. really. show me i am a fool for missing out. i may invent a life for frenchie as a creative project, seems fitting for fakebook. don't hate me please, this is just my way of making peace with things. hopefully you can see the funny here.

good find: cold souls

is your soul weighing you down? imagine a world where you could extract and store a troubled soul or even try on the soul of a russian poet. what does your soul look and feel like? this flick is worth a watch.

fire at daybreak

no foolin' this morning we awoke to sirens and smoke. not in house thankfully but across the alleyway. one street over, a small apartment building went up in smoke. the real smoke monster. a reminder that life is a gift.
