s a i n t v a l e n t i n e

eating the entire bag of candy your work gave you before 11 am is probably a sign that it is going to be a good day.

happy valentine’s day lovers… and haters.

to be honest i still have no idea what i am going to do for casey tonight. i am thinking station 22 vegan dinner (which i am going to pretend i made), the record player, old albums, candles, and some painting.
original I know.

you have to understand every day with this human is amazing.
i have never been more in love with that husband of mine than i am today.
i am sure i will say the same thing tomorrow.

there is nothing like lying in bed together in the late mornings,
howling and howling to get miss june to speak
and she just looks at us like we are idiots.
(probably what are neighbors think as well.)

or trying to sleep in the back of a van in the philippines
on a 3 hour car ride listening to rave music
with some germans, to jump in the ocean with 12 whale sharks.

we have just barely put an indent into the list of places we want to travel to.
we haven’t climbed the cliffs that we feel we need to.
we don’t have children.
and we sometimes spend money on climb gear rather than grown up things.
but i wouldn't change it for the world.

those moments of playing hangman in a park downtown korea,
where no one knows your language and no one from home knows where you are
makes you realize it’s you. and it’s him.
and that’s really all that matters.

“he’s more myself then i am. 
whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
emily bronte
“so love, you should know what to look for
and exactly where to go…

take your time and don’t worry about getting lost.
you’ll find me.
up there, a finger and two dots away.

if you’re wondering if i’ll still be able to hold you
…i honestly don’t know

but i do know that i could still fall for
a swish of light that comes barreling
and cascading towards me.

it will resemble your sweet definite hands.
the universe will bend.
the planets will bow.
and i will say “oh, there you are. i been waitin’ for ya. now we can go.”
a finder, two dots, then me.
