I've Got It ALL(Most)


holy smokes.

holy smokes friends,

sometimes i find myself so wrapped up in the thoughts and actions of other people that i forget to stop and think about what i think about and to remember what it is that i feel about the things that i think about.


this evening i tried to watch the first debate between our two wonderful, smart, courageous, honorable, honest, loyal, straight-talking, straight-thinking, straight in orientation, presidential candidates and boy was i impressed.....................................................................................................................................................
...................................................................................................and and by impressed i mean that i was physically nauseated and i cant tell if it was from too much ice cream, or because i could actually SEE the garbage falling out of the senators mouths as they spoke. very clean and pleasing to republicans and democrats alike was the trash, but trash it was.
obama hadnt yet "seen the language" on our county's "bailout plan" and when the mediator asked Senator John McCain AKA "THE MAVERICK" if he would vote for the plan he responded "i hope so" and when pushed for a real answer he said, and no i am not making this up, "sure".

oh well.


tonight i am warm and i know that my family is safe. i am not hungry and neither is my daughter and that is much more than the majority of us humans can say. i guess we can just let the small stuff slide and roll with what we have...and i think that i'll take a shower tonight before i turn in...ya, that sounds nice. why not? sure.

Eve Learns To Stand Upright...or...We Have Walked On This Earth For Thousands Of Years And Now We Have No Time

these days the balance between old and new is more apparent to me than ever.
life and death.
health and sickness.
good and evil.
blonde and brunette. (kidding, but brunette for me!...and ALL nelson men!)

as eve gets bigger and develops more skills (numchucks, bowstaff, ninja, and liger drawing to name a few) i find myself amazed that as a species we continue to develop and thrive but as a society we continue, it would seem that we strive, to destroy ourselves. i doubt very strongly that we and the planet that we inhabit will be around for very much longer yet even now, in the face of certain doom and self-destruction, my little girl is learning to walk and i cant help but think (and hope) that maybe...just maybe, she will grow up to save our world.


also: you'll notice that eve has a new face. i call it her scrunchy face and i love it :)
