the oh-so-lovely kerri tagged me to do this survey, and since i'm a bit of a survey whore, i'm happy to oblige. so, i have to do the following:

"with as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in 1 picture, 1 poem, 1 song or piece of music, 1 phrase or quote, 1 item of clothing, 1 place (and just for fun) 1 disney princess. if you want to join in, tag 6 more blogs."

here goes.


spring fever.

poem: i'm totally copying kerri--i love this e.e. cummings poem, particularly these first four stanzas:

i am a little church(no great cathedral)
far from the splendor and squalor of hurrying cities
-i do not worry if briefer days grow briefest,
i am not sorry when sun and rain make april

my life is the life of the reaper and the sower;
my prayers are prayers of earth's own clumsily striving
(finding and losing and laughing and crying)children
whose any sadness or joy is my grief or my gladness

around me surges a miracle of unceasing
birth and glory and death and resurrection:
over my sleeping self float flaming symbols
of hope,and i wake to a perfect patience of mountains

i am a little church(far from the frantic
world with its rapture and anguish)at peace with nature
-i do not worry if longer nights grow longest;
i am not sorry when silence becomes singing


(though i have to admit i prefer the album version.)


"i must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. it alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom i also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." --t.i.r. (thank you, joanna.)

item of clothing: jeans!

place: beach!

disney princess: ariel. the little mermaid is my fave.

p.s. want a sneak peek of my new place? here's a shot of that damn matte red wall, which thanks to my dear friend r. will be completely repainted by thursday. also, please forgive the craptastic quality of the photo; i took it on my blackberry at like 10:30 saturday night. (oh, and i have nothing whatsoever against red walls, but this is very orange-red and flat and all my stuff is blue and green, so...yeah.)
