Orange Journal

I finished another one: Chipped paint and allI present, my Orange Journal:

Maya Angelou for the win:

“Take my hand and my
Heart and soul, I will
Only have these eyes for you”
– Ed Sheeran

I don’t care who knows, I love me some Ed:

“All you have is your fire. And the place you need to reach. Don’t you ever tame your demons but always keep them on a leash.” – Hozier

“I’m a slow dying flower I’m the frost killing hour, the sweet turning sour and untouchable” – Natalie Merchant

This will always be my song about my ex-husband (did ya’ll know I was married in the 90s?):

All about my ill-fated plan to go to PLA in Pittsburgh…

“What others think of me is none of my business.”- Anonymous

“When you lose your faith it never grows back”- Rob Thomas

“So go on and cry me a river
Don’t say this will haunt you forever It never did, it never will.”
– Alter Bridge

This is about Fucking Idiot:

This is me some days:

On other days, this is me:

And yet:


“I would always open up the door
Always looking up for higher floors
Wanna see it all give me more (rise, rise up)
I was always up for making changes
Walking down the street meeting strangers
Flipping through my life turning pages (rise, rise up)”
– Imagine Dragons

My new anthem:The cookies were crap, but the box was cute…I think I should just drive over to the north coast to smell the cedars again…’nuff said:This is a page about my Darling Judy. She’s been my best friend here, and she’s FABULOUS:My Judy drew this on a card she gave to me:This is a long-range spread about my middle brother. It will be finished when it’s supposed to be finished:I got nuthin’:For as long as I can:For Fucking Idiot:Can one be an introvert if they’re not afraid of public speaking?Some pages just grow organically:Some are in progress because friends show shiny new sides of themselves all the time:Honestly, this one bores me. They cannot all be favorites:This is about my friend:This is about society in general:Not a pessimist; more of a realist:If I were ever to marry again (HAHAHA), I’d keep my name.Music saves me every day:This fact is a mixed bag; I tend to do this without noticing that I’m doing it. It’s not always a good thing:Heh. Another about my friend:One does hope:“Just because scar tissue is stronger doesn’t make it something to aim for.”- ?Chipped back cover:So, there it is.The 6th one of the 9 journals I was working on at the same time.The 3 largest (thickest) are left to finish.Wheeee!
