its official, my laptop is dead. the people at VCUonline worked very dilligently at trying to fix it because they "thought it was too nice a computer to ruin" and i will sorely miss going to the commons after class to check on its status and chat with the slightly dorky but cute college student computer nerd who works behind the desk. life is sad!!! i will miss my IBM dearly. :(

(this is my second post in one day...but its ok because im going to carytown with dena soon! woo!

So I was at church this morning, and I found out that a family in our congregation was driving to Florida to go to a wedding, and for some reason their daughter was driving seperately, and she got in a car accident and died. If anyone who might read this would pray for them that would really be great, its such a sad situation. The daughter's name was Jane. I just got really freaked out because ive done that drive from richmond to florida a lot and it is rather treacherous. anyway please pray for them, thanks !!!

its our favorite poem!!!!!!

and its really good.

"Mending Wall"
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
"Stay where you are until our backs are turned!"
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of out-door game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, "Good fences make good neighbors".
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
"Why do they make good neighbors? Isn't it
Where there are cows?
But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.
Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
That wants it down." I could say 'Elves' to him,
But it's not elves exactly, and I'd rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father's saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, "Good fences make good neighbors."
Frost

Your eyes tell the stories of a day you wish you could
Recall the moments that once have
Retrack the footsteps that brought us to this favor
I wouldn't ask this of you


Good eye, sniper
I shoot, you run
The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I called you and the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know the end of us all

Run quick, they're behind us
Didn't think we'd ever make it
This close to safety in one piece
Now you wanna kill me in the act of what could maybe
Save us from sleep and what we are


Good eye, sniper
Now I shoot, you run
The words you scribbled on the walls
With the loss of friends you didn't have
I called you and the time is right
Are you in or are you out?
For them all to know the end of us all

Bye bye beautiful
Don't bother to write
Disturbed by your words
and they're calling all cars
Face step, let down.
Face step, step down. 

Cause each broken heart will eventually mend
As the blood runs red down the needle and thread

Someday you will be loved,
and your heart belongs to someone you have yet to meet.

i've never any time to play
i always seems to slip away
but it never really goes by
while i wait here with my lullaby
for our only try

sing with your head up
with your eyes closed
not because you love the song
because you love to sing
because you love to sing, oh

you saw this frustration on my brow
you noticed i'm distracted now
i'm thinking only of my bill fold
and how I want to face you with
diamonds and gold in my head, in my head

Lately, I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found


Close the door and take the stairs.
Up or down? Ups and downs.
Don't pretend you've never been there.
You kiss me like an overdramatic actor who's starving for work,
with one last shot to make it happen.
You've won the role, you've played your part, you've been cordially invited.
But I'm not impressed, and I'm definitely not excited.
'Cause the film runs a shallow budget, and the writer's subject script isn't any deeper.
So dive right in...

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
hey you, who are you kidding?
I'm not like them. I won't buy in.
Hollywood hills and suburban thrills,
hey you, who are you kidding?
Don't quit 'til 47.
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster.

Take back everything you ever said.
You never meant a word of it. You never did.
Take back everything you said.
You never meant a word of it. You never did.


She said 'Alright, Alright, slow down!"
Oh no, oh no, we won't.
'Cause I regret every thing that I said
To ever make her feel like she was something special,
Or that she ever really mattered.
Or did she ever really matter?

I'm not saying that I'm not breaking some hearts tonight,
Oh...
 
 
06 March 2006 @ 10:37 pm
i want to take you far
from the cynics in this town
and kiss you on the mouth
we'll cut out bodies free from the tethers of this scene
start a brand new colony
where everything will change
we'll give ourselves new names
identities erased

Friends Only....



One evening I went into the back drawing-room in which the priest had died. It was a dark rainy evening and there was no sound in the house. Through one of the broken panes I heard the rain impinge upon the earth, the fine incessant needles of water playing in the sodden beds. Some distant lamp or lighted window gleamed below me. I was thankful that I could see so little. All my senses seemed to desire to veil themselves and, feeling that I was about to slip from them, I pressed the palms of my hands together until they trembled, murmuring: 'O love! O love!' many times.~ James Joyce

do not go gentle into that good night;
rage, rage against the dying of the light
-Dylan Thomas

lay your sleeping head, my love, human on my faithless arm;
time and fevers burn away individual beauty from thoughful children, and the grave proves the child ephemeral. But in my arms, til break of day, let the living creature lie, mortal, guilty, but to me the entirely beautiful.-Auden

"Ive been on this road before; this is my road; this road goes all around the world."-My Own Private Idaho

"Nothing endures; not a tree, not love, not even a death, by violence."-A Separate Peace

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation, but it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things."- Thoreau

"If I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing." 1 Corinthians 13:2

"I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing."-Galatians 2:21
