She looks in the windows, and wonders what it would be like to go to the door,
Knock,
And come inside,
Sit on the couch,
And read a book.
She wonders what the beds would be like- soft, warm, comforting- a place of rest.
What wonders await in the kitchen? Cookies? Pie? Home-made sushi?
She wants to feel at home enough to strip her clothing, run a hot bath and soak with a cold drink at her elbow.
And to play music long and loud into the night, to watch television on the couch, and look out from the window,
And pity the poor souls who have a house but not a home.
The smiling Pembroke Welsh Corgi
Rolls in the grass
Dotted with Clover
And little bees
On a summer day
In one of the only places in this town I cherish.
Struck by how attractive she was.
Struck by how difficult speaking about their daughter's death must have been for her parents.
Struck by the notion that I do not want to put my sisters and grandparents in the position of identifying my 23 year old body at a morgue- or to carry the guilt of knowing that the bump I felt under my tires was a small child who chased her ball into the street.
Struck by the dangers of the road.

To A Girl Who Perished In an Auto Collision

A girl with lovely green eyes and curly hair warns the ruddy girl from beyond.
She warns of dainty shoes in the middle of the street.
She warns of spider-webbed windshields.
She warns of the last text.
She warns of guilt- of loved ones identifying a 23 year old body; of parents standing around a tiny coffin because someone was texting and driving.
She is there in every unbuckled seatbelt.
In every red light you run.
In every time you didn’t call a cab after a night at the bar.
She warns us, saying
“Drive safe”.
To A Girl Who Perished In An Auto Collision
All Non-Abusive Quesions and comments welcome. Auto crashes are the second leading cause of death in people 15-35 (quoted from memory but I think it's right). Please don't text someone if you know they're driving- and don't text and drive. You may get away with it a million times but it only takes one time for something awful to happen.

Y'all can throw y'all's coats on the bed in the master bedroom.
But I always order Teriyaki with the proper pronunciation.
And Eunyuk has no 'k'.
There is something odd in the way Kelly "can" - Missouri?
Even if I spoke every language perfectly everyone would still know where I am from.
My English is very good (though perhaps not perfect) but it is that specific brand of English.
  • Mood: Anxious
  • Listening to: This Is Halloween (Manson Cover) and Jack's Lament
  • Reading: The Iron Trial by Cassandra Claire and Holly Black
  • Watching: YouTube Videos.
  • Playing: Nothing
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Nothing
So, I am worried about one of my grades, but at the same time I am really excited for Halloween :pumpkin:  Work is beginning to go wrong too- we may have to fold. The paper isn't doing very well. So I may be job hunting again soon. 
Anyway, so far things are status quo. 
I'll include any relevant updates in next month's update. 
Have a great month!

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you





Every night , someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,





At least fifteen people in this world love you.


The only reason someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you



There are at least two people in this world that would die for you




You mean the world to someone.


Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.



When you make the biggest mistake ever,
something good comes from it.





When you think the world has turned its back on you, 
take a look.





Always remember the compliments you've received.


Forget the rude remarks.









So if you are a loving friend, send this to 15 on your list including the person that sent it to you. If you care


Tonight,
at midnight
your true love
will realize
they like you.





Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning
and

four o'clock pm

tomorrow,

it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest

shock of your
life





If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with

relationship problems

for

the next ten years . Send this to fifteen people

in fifteen minutes !!

Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! remember that your loved


F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Send one to all your friends who you think deserve a hug (which, hopefully includes the person who sent it to you)!! You might send it to your enemies as well! It'll really make them stop and think!!! If you don't receive this back, nobody likes you, and they wish you'd stop bugging them! If you receive this back 1 time, open up! Find more friends, enemies, or enemies pretending to be friends If you receive this back 2 times, you're off to a good start! (Unless you sent it to yourself! That's cheating!) If you receive this back 3 times, you're a good friend. If you receive this back 4 times, you're truly loved as a friend!! _____8888888888____________________ ____888888888888888_________________ __888888822222228888_______________ _ _888888222I2222288888______________ _ 888888222222222228888822228888__ ____ 8888822222222222222882222222228 88___ 88888222222222LUV22222222222222 288__ _8888822222222222222222222222222 _88_ __88888222222222222222U22222222_ _888 ___888822222222222222222222222___ 888 ____8888222222222222222222222____ 888 _____8888222222222222222222_____8 88_ ______8882222222222222222_____8888 __ _______888822222222222______888888 __ ________8888882222______88888888___ _ _________888888_____888888888_______ __________88888888888888____________ ___________888888888________________ ____________888888__________________ _____________8888___________________ ______________88____________________ ______________8_____________________ ______________1_____________________ _______________1____________________ ________________1___________________ _________________1__________________ __________________1_________________ __________________1_________________ _________________1__________________ ________________1___________________ _______________1____________________ ______________1_____________________ ______________1_____________________ _______________1____________________ ________________1___________________ _________________1__________________ __________________1_________________ ___________________1__________ YOU'VE BEEN HUGGED!
