"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
went over to the funeral home to write the obituary, plan the services, etc. mom'll be buried in Charles Evans Cematery in downtown Reading, where my grandmother and great-grandmother are buried, and where we used to go for walks- she would walk allie and i to our elementary school through it- children weren't allowed through on their own. when she last visited chicago and brought me furnature, she also left me the journal she kept when i was born, and it was amazing to read. i'm in charge of going through pictures, and making a slideshow for the screen and a poster for the print ones. i found this one of she and i and it makes me cry everytime. we were so cute, so unbelieveably happy, and had such cute wallpaper in the nursery.
