Aside

Bride-Wars

Did you know that there are things called ‘wedding blogs’, where hundreds of engaged or newlywed women blog and comment on all things weddings? I had no idea until today. I spent over an hour browsing through countless centerpieces, bridesmaid gifts, honeymoon destinations and save-the-date cards…HELLO? I have never been on of those girls who grew up reading bridal magazines or collecting things for my wedding scrapbook… Yet somehow I have caught this bridal bug… I just hope it passes before I actually get engaged… (Since the months before the wedding probably isn’t the right time to let your betrothed know that you’re insane!)
Anyway, on a different note. I found Qwyneth Paltrow’s blog (http://www.goop.com/) and all of her detox recipes.. I tired one this afternoon!
BROCCOLI and ARUGULA SOUP

It was either the soup or I would have ordered place-cards… I thought this baby-food was the better choice!

I never thought i’d see the day

I am fascinated by the way we fall for each other, fall towards certain things. Humans have an attraction towards falling: we mash into each other, we destroy our own stratospheres so that we might get closer to something in someone. “Your subconscious is attracted to his subconscious, subconsciously.” I think it might be a little more than that. Fascinating how we rip each other to shreds, fall longingly, and lovingly, into rapture.

Physicists who deal in quantum mechanics have found that on an atomic level, if you divide our body into actual physical particles and the space between them, we have more space in our bodies than actual stuff. You are space ready to be filled.

And so, “you complete me” is nonsense because you are already whole.However, you can breathe in new possibilities to the space inside of you, keep clearing out the dust and opening the windows.

I have had this picture saved for a while now. I first saw it and thought immediately what an incredible destination it would be for a honeymoon.. someone else’s honeymoon. And for the first time in many many months, I can envisage myself, in love and married to the person who wants to take me here … I have no idea why I am getting excited at the thought of this..God is love, God created love and He has given us love to give.

SO…

today, 26th January 2009, I tell you that I am ready for a grown-up type of love (and yes, i wrote it down so that you would have proof)

a nation reborn

It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get to where we are today, but we have just begun. Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.

I believe that this man will change America and in turn, influence the world.

All people want is hope …
