Better luck next time

I don't have much to say.
I've lost my voice, literally, and my brain seems to have followed suit.

"Do you always think this much, Charlie?"
"Is that bad?" I just wanted someone to tell me the truth.
"Not necessarily. It's just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life."
"Is that bad?"

So much can change in 7 days.

Thank you.

Today, while searching for paper, I came across the card my mom made me when I was baptised. It had this e. e cummings poem written on it, which I have always loved. It never fails to put me in a good mood.

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
wich is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any- lifted from the no
of all nothing-human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Every word, every thought, every sound

So since this is my 100th post, I thought that I needed to post something suitably epic. Which is easy enough, since on Saturday we went to see BILLY TALENT!!!! *insert girly screams and throwing of underwear*
So ridiculously amazing, we all left on a sweaty high.

Some of Kim's photos...

Amazingness. There are no words.
Happy faces
Jamie and Kimbo
Wide eyes
Grant gets involved ;)
So hardcore.
Ah the excitement!

Best. Night. Ever.

Yesterday I crawled back into bed and lay there with my knees to my chest.
The curtains were parted just enough that the light was making an imprint on the inside of my eyelids.
I think too much, always have. And so I lay there and thought some more.

I thought of moths and how I have always loved them. Always rooting for the underdog.
I thought of all the work I have to do and how paralysed I feel.
I thought of the line between wearing your heart on your sleeve and keeping things inside.
I thought of the end of the year.
I thought of the end of Vega.
I thought of spindles and sleep.
I thought of how a fox could love a bird, but she would always drag him down to her level.
I thought of puzzle pieces left in the ground.
I thought of  you.
I thought of skin.
I thought of living up to expectations.

I listened to the rain.
I felt warm inside my ugly jersey.
I said nothing.
I slept.

I don't have a 10th. I'm non-conformist like that.
