“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.”

"My feelings are too loud for words and too shy for the world.”

She was a dreamer, says the notebooks
Covered in words from a wistful heart
An artist too, says the multiple sketchbooks
Throw in a pile in the corner; and a introverted, nostalgic girl,
Says the smiling faces of friends and family
Taped on walls and in frames on the windowsills;
But not a girl for tidying up, say her neglected room
Littered with clothes and an unmade bed.

A couple shared the space, says the stacks of envelopes
Thrown on the kitchen counter and papers
Stacked with words blurring the page, and they had multiple children
Says the shelf full of animated disney movies.
Chocolate was a favorite, say the chocolate brownies
And chocolate swiss rolls in the kitchen closet,
And days were long and lonely, say the slowing moving clocks.
It was boring here, says the doggy-eared books read to pass time.

Things weren't perfect, say the bedroom doors
Constantly shut. Music blaring behind the doors
Say they were not talkers; Laptop screens lit up
Say they were in their own little worlds.
And as for problems? They were closed behind locked lips
And closed doors- not talked about aloud,
A pair of earphones and a lit up screen,
An iPod on full volume. Things weren't perfect, she'd say.

in loving memory of Michael Roberson | 2/23/12

Michael Roberson was a great friend, son, student, & person. He was always smiling, laughing, & making OTHERS smile & laugh. This video is for him, & everyone who knew him. These are things that people said/think about Mikey, on Facebook (so if you're my friend on fb, your post might be on here. I just went on his wall & looked.) -No names, just the posts. Mikey might be gone, but he will never be forgotten. He's watching over us now. R.I.P. Mikey.

"My dentist once told me that letting go is like pulling a tooth. When it was pulled out, you’re relieved, but how many times does your tongue run itself over the spot where the tooth once was? Probably a hundred times a day. Just because it was not hurting you doesn’t mean you did not notice it. It leaves a gap and sometimes you see yourself missing it terribly. It’s going to take a while, but it takes time. Should you have kept the tooth? No, because it was causing you so much pain. Therefore, move on and let go."
