You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

Happy holidays.

Let's have dinner. Oh, and see some other photos from my life.

Je voudrais manger quelque chose. )

Yeah, I dunno but it probably made sense at the time. That's my grandfather on the right.

From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere. )

*Yet another album I wore out.
**Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'.

Any time anyone made a move toward us, like they wanted to take her, I just gave 'em the Heisman.

I've spent the equivalent of Iraq's surplus (ooh, topical) on clothes for her and she shows up a month early and unable to fit into anything at the hospital. She's wearing two white t-shirts (check that giant armhole)--one inverted and worn as shorts. My niece is a hobo.

I was passing through a room when I noticed something in a set of photos I've yet to scan.

Some things are genetic. )

More of this later after I've been properly breakfasted.

More family picture scans! I am not done, but here's the first batch.

EDIT: Oops! I realized while looking at some other, better photos that the younger man in the photo with my great-grandmother is her older brother. That's been corrected and a photo of her real husband has been added. In addition, I've added some details that my mother gave me.

I was a long time coming... )

Frankenstein Friday doing a Tom Petty cover. I just want to wrap my legs around them in friendship--is that so wrong?

2) I also love this account of volunteering for/meeting Sen. Obama. yes, the words, the great profound words that I utter to the future president is not, "thank you Senator" or "it's an honor to meet you", no, I say, "can I shake your left hand?" to the future President.

3) I checked out a couple of Improv Everywhere's newest missions and my new favorite is Best Game Ever. "For our latest mission, we turned a little league baseball game in Hermosa Beach, California into a major league event." And it was AWESOME. I may or may not have gotten teary.

4) I am studying for my history exam since it's this afternoon and part of it is on Reconstruction (Non US Americans: the period following the Civil War). One of the related documents is a "Letter From a Freedman to His Old Master." Seems that the "Old Master" wrote Mr. Jourdon Anderson, the author of this letter, asking him if he might want to come back. J. Anderson's response is lovely and well-said. You can see Clay Davis for what would have been my response.

5) I have to get back to studying for my history exam since it's this afternoon, but when I get back from that, I'm going to start scanning some more family photos. In the meantime, here's the first one.

On the right, I have no idea. On the left, my grandfather.
The other day, I engaged in my favorite form of stress relief and hung out outside with the dogs.

Here be pictures. )

I've gotten like, a million calls this morning for appointments. The universe is hilarious.
I just found this picture online (lightened by me)...

Today was quite lovely, even though I don't feel as if I did anything. I had an appointment this morning and I was not thrilled about getting up so early (9am appointment!). I was even less thrilled when my client turned out to be a no-show, no-call.

So I came home, had waffles (A+++), and took some photos.

Whee! )
