“If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream

And for a fraction of a second you can’t remember where you are

Just open your window and follow your memory upstream

To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star”

– “Father & Daughter” from Surprise

via Paul Simon.


Aw I miss my dad. Can’t wait to see him.

The fact that I’m at Whole Foods on a Sunday finally sinks in when I join the end of the line…halfway down the dog food aisle. I suddenly realize that I’m dying to get out of this store. Maybe it’s the lonely feeling of being a carnivore in a sea of vegans, or the newfound knowledge that some people’s dogs eat better than I do, but mostly I think it’s the fact that Yanni has been playing literally this entire time.

There are so many great quotes from this article. Like this:
“The first thing I see is the great wall of kombucha — 42 different kinds of rotten tea. Fun fact: the word kombucha is Japanese for ‘I gizzed in your tea.’ Anyone who’s ever swallowed the glob of mucus at the end of the bottle knows exactly what I’m talking about. I believe this thing is called “The Mother,” which makes it that much creepier.”

Oh just read it. We’ve all been there. You know it’s true!

Get ready to add the term “enclothed cognition” – the systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer’s psychological processes – to your vocabulary. A recent study showed that when we don clothes that have symbolic significance, we adjust our behavior. Enclothed cognition. Something to think about when we reach in to our closets this morning.

Genius! My fave:
”The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”
