Again and Again, However We Know The Landscape of Love

by Rainer Maria Rilke

Again and again,
However we know the landscape of love and the little churchyard there,
With its sorrowing names,
And the frighteningly silent abyss into which the others fall:

Again and again the two of us walk out together under the ancient trees,
Lie down again and again among the flowers,
Face to face with the sky.

Newport Seafood & Wine Festival

Oh, my, my, my... what a day. A VIP booze bus from Portland to Newport, running around the tents and breaking rules. Today was a good day.

Buzz. Buzz.

Started my flower ink. An orange tulip - my favorite flower - represents Sophie. Soon to follow; black rose for Serena, baby's breath for Buddy, bamboo for Big Momma Sasha and forget-me-nots for Sugar. Thanks Jesse at Hawthorne Ink.

Oh, you mysterious Saint, you, sir Valentine.

I had a Valentine's day date! Thrilled. An old flame asked me during lunch what were my V-Day dinner plans - me having none prompted him to ask to spend it with him. We ate Mexican and drank margaritas. It was delightful. I'm so thankful to have someone thinking of me on this day. It's been ages. Thanks BG.

Ripple Effect

I believe in this. Unfortunately, I also believe it can happen in the negative.
One lie - ok, the lies others tell to cover up that lie (ripples starting...), having to answer for those lies, eh, defend those lies, eh - TELL MORE LIES TO MAKE SURE THAT LIE STAYS HIDDEN!!

Today just made it all clear, I do not want to be apart of a cover up. The stress of it all made me snap this evening and I've worked so hard to not contribute to unhealthy relationships - romantic, family, friend or foe.
Put a fork in me. I'm done.
