And So This Is Christmas...

I'm quite sure no one ever checks my blog anymore. But that's alright, I'm still allowed to write in it, right?
I am so relieved that it is Christmas time. But sincerely not for the presents. That would be selfish. I just like the spirit everyone has. Sometimes I lack spirit myself, so I need help from others to find it.

It's a high waisted red skirt and a white shirt and a golden belt. That probably sounds strange. If you know anything about Mary Kate or Ashley, it resembles something they might be seen wearing.
For Christmas this year I get to go to Las Vegas with my grandma! We're going to see the Beatle's Love. I'm really, really excited. I'm sure it'll be really one of a kind. And maybe it won't be as cold as it is here.

I've discovered a beautiful author. I haven't read much of his material at all yet, so I'm really anxious to get some of it. I did, however, find this poem today. I think it's quite beautiful. His name is Richard Brautigan by the way.

your eyes: snow
coming down
the stairs
of the wind.

Your hair
is the color
of God picking

In the second
kingdom of the stars
there is only
