Sticky Mango

See where I collect things that remind me of back home, a life already lived and a future life.
I dream of settling in a small house near the beach on Lake Michigan with a back door covered in old-fashioned climbing roses and rooms filled with nothing but necessities and books. So many things to dream about when I nod off to sleep. Have a lovely weekend. 

She has what soul loves to flow into. She's kind. She weeps. She makes quick personal decisions, and laughs so easily.

Spent last Saturday picking cherries from a dear friend's yard. Lucky! Cherry jam and cherry-rhubarb pie are in the works as I write this. But they're so pretty sitting on my table! Beauty is everywhere if we learn to see it in small things. 

No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention. ~ Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
