A/C Reality

dreams and reality
meet occasionally

at stoplights,

say 'hi' as they wait
for the signal, then
go their separate ways

you determine which
one you follow,

Not much to say tonight, but I love that poem and the picture reminds me of Owl City, which always makes me happy. I have very little to say besides, I'm living in a TROPICAL CLIMATE. It's so humid here that I have never sweat so much in my life. Helps that our A/C is in disrepair.

I keep thinking, rather ironically about this hymn. Am I soldier of the cross, a follower of the Lamb... and must I be carried to the skies, on flowery beds of ease, while others fought to win the prize and sailed through bloody seas? If broken A/C is the trial I'm called to right now, then so be it. I'll try not to use the heat as an excuse to bite my sibling's heads off.


thankful for -

496 a present of fresh bread and bananas from our neighbor
497 orange tiger lilies in the morning sun
498 hugs from my oldest brother Daviey
499 waiting to go to brunch with Courtney
500 a haze-blue sky above quiet trees
501 a well-received risk
502 examples of humility
503 beginning a new journal
504 people who keep me grounded when I'm flustered emotionally
505 how pets understand when you're sad and try to comfort you
506 slowly learning that it's okay to be a slow learner
507 pineapple-blueberry fruit medley
