Coffee Shop Writing

I turn into a fiction writer or poet when I try to write a paper in a coffee shop. Suddenly my brain begins to write the story of the barista who rang up my tea or the story of the man who is sitting in the corner reading looking like he is waiting for someone who will never come.

My paper is supposed to be about Steinbeck, the ultimate writer-observer. He would want me to write about the beautiful ecology of this coffee shop and how they interact right? There is even a Chinaman with a shoe that flops...

Sweet [Monday]

[Photo of Ed Rickett's phonograph from here]

Dear Cold Sunshine Monday,
You are sweet because of the mint tea in an undersea mug {tribute to Doc as he drives to La Jolla for his"sooplapods" today}, the music that sounds like it should come from a phonograph, and the fact you feel like a Friday. Now Thursday, take note, you are to be sweet as well for that is the day I see my love once again.

Upward and onward to Chapter 38 or rather Hooptedoodle (2) or The Pacific Grove Butterfly Festival...
Your's truly.

Fairytale Elopement

No my man and I did not elope [yes I am engaged, to my high school sweetheart as a matter of fact]. Its tempting though. Especially when some of my favorite wedding blogs post beautiful elopements like this one. 

Doesn't she look like she came out of a fairytale? I love how she rocks the blue wedding dress. I've seen other people do nontraditional wedding dresses and often it looks like they should be guests at wedding. This one is different. She wears it with the same air of beauty that she would if she were wearing a white bridal gown.

Bridal blogs idea blogs should not be allowed to post beautiful creative elopements and then say that if they were to do it all over again for themselves they would just elope. It just encourages brides like me to run away and secretly get married in a far way field!
Oh simple love!

Penny for your Thoughts?

Why yes please. And maybe a nickle for a picture or two...

Welcome to a blog of fanciful thoughts and other colorful things in a land of black and white text. I've been thinking about starting for a while now but I got a bit hindered by finding the right font for my title. 

[the title is the most important part you know. my 7th grade english teacher said so.]

Therefore after long searching for the perfect font this blog will commence.
