Hey, y'all!

Today is my twenty-second birthday, which I'm pretty much using as an excuse to give everyone who cares a quick update.  All five of you.  :B

I kid.

Anyway, I've been busy the last few days preparing for a visit from two of my best friends this weekend, and then I'll be busy entertaining the aforementioned friends.  So that's why I haven't been responding to comments and replies, but I'll likely get to them by Monday.  I'm not disappearing again.  (At least not right now.)

I got a Daily Deviation recently for my poem An Old, Sweet Song  and that's another reason I've been slow to reply--SO MANY COMMENTS.  This happens every time one of my pieces gets extra attention.  I get a little overwhelmed.  I really hate just replying with a quick three or four words I can copy and paste.  I really like to take the time to reply to comments individually, and I skimmed over the comments on my poem and there are some great ones that really deserve individual attention.

Today I'm just relaxing.  I'm currently reading The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (I waited very patiently for it to be released in paperback, which is still $15, but it's okay because the paper is that soft, textured kind that I love so much).  And watching the cat stalk some unidentified bug.  John is baking a two-layer chocolate raspberry cake, WITH actual fresh raspberries (which were on sale, so we have extras) AND raspberry jam (holy crap) and my in laws are taking us out for dinner at a really good Mexican restaurant in town.  I'm sorry I talk about food so much, I just really like it.  And that's why I'll never be skinny.  *ba-dum, tsssss*

If you're older than I am, give me your best 22-year-old advice.

I'd like to know what all of you are reading right now and if you're enjoying it.

If you aren't reading anything, shame on you give me a music recommendation.

Or give me a music recommendation, anyway, if you want to.

One perfect lie wells in your eye
and drips unreservedly from its center
like eye drops they give bad actors
so they don't have to really cry.

The day we met, I said you had ocean eyes:
blue-gray and so full of salt they could burst.

Now I see the utter stillness there
that exists in the eye of a hurricane.

The collective words you spout are alluring,
a whirlpool attempting to reel me back in,
each scripted apology a rip current
pulling me farther from the shoreline I cling to.

But I know they're just crocodile tears,
and I won't let you pull me under again.
Charybdis
Partially a persona, partially me.

It's about abusive relationships in general I guess.

But he did have blue eyes and a big mouth.

Writing is my life. I am left-handed. I don't like most people, but I find all people endlessly fascinating. I'm the textbook definition of an INFJ, have an obsession with owls, and would give anything to be paid to travel the world and write about the places I see. Except my left hand, because I need that to write.

To see what nice thing you've been accused of doing (and who else is being recognized), find the widget by the same name on my profile page!

Helpful hint:  It's above the Stamp Box of Doom!

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
