New favorite Malbec & kitties with mustaches

What am I doing up so late, past 2 and a half a.m.?!?

Reconnecting -- pink glitter in my hair, glitter glitter everywhere... a room full of beautiful people, of children who grow, with beautiful eyes last seen three years ago.

Goodbye-ing -- a send-off for another child grown, now a new bride, soon to arrive in Italy to lead an Army-wife life.

Homecoming -- welcome hugs, meaningful exchanges, fills my spirit, feels like home <3

The first crisp of Fall, bright moon on a clear night.
The magical energy from today's gatherings is slow to fade.

Joshua, Giselle & Tiara

Today's goodness brought to you by a good night's sleep + bringing music back into my life.  

Who knew that hanging out at the mall after an 11-hour work day could be so great?  Met Joshua from Mississippi via Chicago, 1-month-new to Houston, glad to be in an open-minded, diverse community.  Giselle had a story behind every chocolate treat.  Tiara practically rapped all the pretzel options & prices, she knew her stuff so well and totally owned it.  

Yay for interacting with the beautiful people of the world!

How lucky can she get

Just realized tonight.  I am that helpless child again, crushed within an unpredictable environment with no control.  Always on edge, anticipating the next upset.  Doing my best to survive and assist and unite, but unable to stave off the slithering disapproval, unrelenting dissatisfaction.  The similarities are clarifying.  And this time.. what will I do this time.

no bean sprouts

Sometimes, life gives you spring rolls just when you need them, a coworker calls you a "young cat", and you remember to drive home with the wind in your hair.

black orange

The brightness in an otherwise awful day:
My newly pregnant coworker is naming her baby girl after me.

magna carta

I love my aunt's voice.  It's interesting how hearing a voice over the phone can be such a different experience than when engaging in person.. the feelings, memories and images such an experience can evoke.

good eye bad eye

Today started off awesome with new contacts (finally) and then surprise SNOW blowing in at 6:30am, covering the deck, cars and rooftops.. a magical drive to work.

Switch to a crazy morning at the office, awful headache by noon, then an unexpected call resulting in a trip to the Emergency Room and a temporarily blind boyfriend in much pain :(

Ending this long day with gratitude and hopes for all afflicted to find healing... in some form or fashion.

Hi Mia! Here is your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, January 9

You need to stick it out today -- otherwise, there's just no telling what might pop up tomorrow or the next day. Things are only going to work out for you if you believe in yourself.

Hi Mia! Here is your Daily Horoscope for Friday, January 10

You can feel a bit better about your lack of progress when you realize that your values are still intact. It's a really good time for you to remind yourself of what is most important to you.

Feeling anxious about chaotic work environment possibly never improving. 
Disappointed to hear about social dynamics at workplace.  
Reality check.  Remain neutral.
I may be the bridge.  Will have to find my voice!

winter song

and the hearts of fathers
are carried in the snow, the flow, the pull...
