Saying we will file it away one day but then never find the time?
The same for items we have accumulated over time that we probably will never use again
We tuck those once-believed treasures down into boxes
Saying we will go through them on a rainy day
Sort and sift....maybe have a garage sale
Or get a filing system and really organize our crap
Yet everything lies idle in those boxes
And on our tables
And around our work space
Trying to suffocate us
Like weighted monkeys on our backs they nag and nag
Screeching for our attention
Yet we do everything in our power to push it all aside and ignore it.
Saving it for tomorrow.
But tomorrows never come
Unless they are forced upon us by circumstances beyond our choosing
Only then are fires lit under our asses to make us move
Only then does it seem we accomplish much in a short period of time
What are we afraid of?
Finally having the free time we were always screaming we never seemed to have?
Realizing perhaps we don't have as much to do with our time as we once believed we would?
What lies behind your closed doors?
Not only in your house
But within your mind
And your soul?
Don't you sometimes wish you had a giant sweeper you could plug yourself into
That with the flip of a switch
Could suck out all the dust and cobwebs from all those nooks and crannies?
All the junk you have fast-fed your brain over time
Performing elite liposuctioning of your brain?
The days start moving so fast they make you dizzy
The months spin past your eyes with each glance
You realized halfway through
It would have been so much easier to have kept up with the pace all along
Instead of trying to play catch up many years later
The perpetual piles continue to build
And you start to wonder if you will ever gain control again
Or if the piles will become giant soul-seeking blobs
Consuming all your time
All your energy
All your drive

I read the book years ago......and loved the story. This is one of those rare instances where I feel the movie held true to the book. I adore the movie probably even more than the book.
There are certain times of the year that make me feel like watching specific movies. I have been feeling the "URGE" to watch this now for about the past week. Guess I will dig it out and give it a go. This is one of those movies where you really are drawn into the characters and their daily lives. I absolutely love it.
I love how it came on...the music is some of the best from this movie...
you can apparently see the entire movie in 12 parts on You Tube......you can start here on this account and not only find that movie but some other classics to watch as well! GO HERE!
Of course I am also in the mood to watch "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!" AND Wizard of Oz.......You've Got Mail......
hum......maybe cause they are all usually shown in the fall or have fall in them?

This is about the size of a small calculator.....and all you do is plug in headphones to listen. Can be easily carried with you anywhere you go......very much like an iPod.
I did check out one to try......though their selection left a little to be desired.
I also saw this new little gadget on TV ......a credit card sized digital photo album you can carry with you in your wallet or billfold! It stores 50 digital photos!
Technology is coming out with amazing things! I also love the digital notepads......where you can write on a legal pad......and it will digitally store all you write...and then using special software......you can upload it to your PC into TYPED TEXT!!!!!!! COULD be the answer to my horrific handwriting woes and maybe something Noah would enjoy using as well!
I have been in a brain fog a lot lately. I don't like that! I find myself not even able to remember how to spell specific words! What the crap is that all about? I mean I spell them phonetically but sometimes not correctly! I shake my head and look at what I attempted and just cannot figure it out. I imagine it is hormone/stress/lots on your mind type related stuff.
Tomorrow is another OSU game. I am really looking forward to watching the game again! I have really enjoyed watching the games this year and NEXT week will be the OSU and MICHIGAN GAME! AND I just realized.....it will be during a Halloween party my sister is having. YIKES!!!!!!!!!! Of all the games that would have to be the one they televise earlier in the day! Well I am sure there will be chances to see it!
I need to get to work. Story of my life lately.

I looked down at the envelope
Gazing at the ink your hands had placed upon it
My heart racing with excitement
I reached down and touched each formed letter
As if by osmosis my fingers could become entwined with yours
As I turned the envelope over, I thought about the seal
Did you lick it before pressing it shut?
To imagine I was holding in my grasp
Any object your hands let alone your tongue had touched
Was almost too much for me to fathom
I grew quite heady just thinking about it all
I pressed the seal to my nose and deeply breathed in
Hoping I could smell the scent of the gum you chew
I gently broke the seal
So as not to damage the remnants of leftover glue still present
I brought it to my own tongue
And I licked it
With my eyes closed
And I swear I could feel your tongue
And taste the flavor of your gum
As tears spilled forth from my eyes onto my cheeks
My soul longing to be next to yours.
