the subtle grays and flashing reds

I first discovered Kurt Halsey's work in late 2005. I've moved on from being the rabid crazy fan (and he has slowed down in merchandise/art shows/etc. over the same period of time)...but I still go to his website/LJ community once in awhile.

In this cold cold winter (my hands are freezing most of all), his work is comforting. quiet, peaceful, simple. but beautiful and elegant (and at times very moving. not the case for this one specifically).

Yet another reason to love Portland. ;) (Along with my Uncle Paul, public transit, lots of places/people that I'd enjoy, Powells bookstore, Leann from Project Runway season 4 is from there-just recently moved to NYC, kate bingham-burt (spelling?) is there, etc.)

waiting anxiously..then it arrives so quietly, it is hard to notice.

Of course I didn't check my school email since sunday or something.. and my teacher emailed last night we weren't having class (my 1130-118 one) because so many people were going to be watching the inauguration. So I woke up at 9 am (and have to leave by 9:15 am), so I was running out the door..wasn't anywhere near a computer before arriving to class.

So I was so busy printing things out, checking my email, reading my blogs, now I don't think I have time for McDonald's before class! Meep!

Got class 330-520 pm.. (EALL675), then 6 pm Dr. Gordon appointment, then go home and do homework/eat/craft (and hopefully get to use TV to watch Obama stuff, but I doubt it).

I can't wait for all the magazine covers/articles/etc. I'm getting in the mail sometime. ;) *hint, hint*

(all below was gathered and was to be placed on one of my other blogs, but I don't have the time...)

Right now I am on the look out for any photos depicts brain waves, heart waves, sleep waves...

i love how your eyes close, whenever you kiss me. & when i’m away from you, i love how you miss me. i love the way your kiss is always heavenly but darling most of all i love how you love me. i love how your heart beats, whenever i hold you. i love how you think of me without being told to. i love the way your touch is always tenderly but darling most of all i love how you love me. -phil spector

There’s tension between being a fulfilled human being and being right all the time. Feeling vehemently about an issue often blinds us to its complexity, but we’d be machines if we always chose accuracy over enthusiasm. --22words

Every poem can be considered in two ways—as what the poet has to say, and as a thing which he makes. -C. S. Lewis
