I'm pinned to the earth

Pinned to the earth
1:There's a fire in the sky
And I'm pinned to the earth

You keep coming by

With your heart in reverse

But I won't look
Because I've know hurt

2:You were blowing a cold wind

Staring up into the sky

And I kept coming by

Quoting every loving verse

It seemed you didn't care
And I was hurt

1: A chill caught up to me
Thrilling to my bones
I finally looked up to see
But you weren't alone

You were holding her hand
And it left me bruised

2: Like every dream I ever had

I had to wake up sometime

There was a fire in the sky
But we were on the ground

I had to go on

And let go of the pain

1: I was a step behind

And so, I missed the mark

My heart was blind

I was running from the spark

So you walked on

What did I learn?

And we both hurt

It's sort of like a duet, but I don't know...I think I lost my mojo. This one doesn't translate well. I guess you would have to hear it the way I imagine it, because it sounds stupid otherwise. I have so much to say, but I have to go to sleep before I collapse. Hopefully, I'll have time to write something more interesting soon. My world is just upside down.

Past life fun

I got the link to this website from Charleston Daily Photo blog to get a past life diagnosis. I always have fun imagining what sort of past lives I might have had, if such things do exist. I'm just fond of daydreaming I suppose and these are quite interesting to read too. I think I've been having too much fun reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, they just give your imagination that extra little push. c:

Your past life diagnosis:

I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Egypt around the year 1850. Your profession was that of a medic, surgeon or herbalist.

Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Ruthless character, carefully weighing his decisions in critical situations, with excellent self-control and strong will. Such people are generally liked, but not always loved.

The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your lesson is to study, to practice and to use the wisdom that lies within the psychological sciences and in ancient manuscripts. With strong faith and hard work you will reach your real destiny in your present life.

Do you remember now?

Why, not at all. I wish I could insert a Cheshire cat smile, that's what is necessary here. How about a C:

A few forgotten lines

I'm the girl that pulls the shot for your coffee
And combs the tangles from your hair

I greet you with the sunrise every morning
Then, kiss you in the night air

I forgot about this one the other day...Now it will never have a real end. Ah well.

I hope you enjoy the picture above, I took it with my camera phone a week ago. The sky has been so interesting to watch lately, it's moody and never quite the same. I don't understand people who can't appreciate this weather, but to each his own. I'm going adventuring so I should have some more interesting tales soon.

"And those things do best please me, that do befall preposterously."
-Puck also known as Robin Goodfellow, A Midsummer Night's Dream

I do enjoy the mischief of that "merry wanderer of the night." c:

A bad back and so much more...

Much More
So much more, So much more
I could love you so much more

Just close that door
Close that door
End all that there was before
'Cause I could love you so much more

He's saying sweet nothings to you
I know you think you love him too
But I could love you so much more

So much more, So much more
Just close that door
Close that door

These are the times when I wish I could play guitar or piano. I mean, I write these little things and I can hear them in my head, but I have no way to translate them. I need to stop being lame and just learn an instrument. I think I'm just feeling frustrated because I'm cut off from my usual creative outlet. I miss my camera, so I've resorted to using a camera phone. It worked out for the style of pictures I took, like the one above, because I wanted the worn photo look and I used Poladroid (Thank you Carraol!). I just miss having my camera and I've been without it for almost two months now! It's just insane.

And now, for more bad news...I injured my back, so I've been highly unproductive and surly. I spent the day trying to keep my back from killing me and icing it. This proved to be quite a difficult day, since I'm a nanny. My one-year-old little brother doesn't care if my back is screwed up, so I didn't really get to relax. However, I did rock him to sleep for his nap and I received a blissful hour of tea-drinking, quiet time.

They're saving the Polaroid!

I sadly do not have a Polaroid camera, but I would have one if film were still made for them. Well, I may just have to buy one soon because there is hope! Someone wants to manufacture film for an instant analog camera in an age of digital instant gratification?! YES!

A beautiful beautiful soul in the Netherlands has taken it upon himself to save Polaroids from extinction. He has acquired an old manufacturing plant where Polaroids were made up until last year when they were discontinued. He has so far collected a team of scientists to help him recreate the chemicals needed for the film (because production of these chemicals was halted years in ago and Polaroid had stockpiled the chemicals instead). So once the chemical processes are refined and the plant is up and running we will once again be able to experience the magic of the Polaroid.

No other cameras truly capture a once in a lifetime moment the way that Polaroids do, and this appreciation for the power of the Polaroid may just save it. So if you have missed them, just be ready to snatch up the film packs when they return triumphantly.
