"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
the lilac is out and it smells amazing. most of the lilac in my neighborhood is this butterfly lilac instead of the oldfashioned ones. the blooming trees were beautiful, but now i know spring is really happening. there are robins everywhere, and the bulbs are all done. the roses are getting buds and it makes me miss my mom, the roses almost always bloom for her birthday. i love my little patio garden, but someday i would like to have dirt that's not in containers and be able to grow bushes like raspberies, roses and lilacs. lisa and i have a plan for this. because we like to live up high but it would also be nice to have a house and a yard, it's impossible to get both. but there's a highrise on sheridan road that has a penthouse on the roof that's like a single family home. so we could have a house and a yard all 30 stories up! wouldn't that be so cool? someday, when we're rich.
