secondskin 's Thoughts:

I have to admit that I have been giving my computer a lot less attention since my Quantifiable Evidence post. I only really started blogging hard core last November when the weather was too cold to spend time outdoors. I didn’t really think about what I would do once it warmed up. I don’t think I am a “unfair weather blogger” but it is true that I have been spending less and less time on my computer in exact measurement to the degree of sunlight and warmth available. Hmmm. I am a creature of pleasure, sensation and desire fulfillment. Does that make sense? I pour my heart into doing things I LOVE to do. I can still get things done that I don’t feel passion for, but I don’t luxuriate in them. LUXURIATE. That is an adjective my husband uses to describe my state of being when I do something I enjoy. While I eat Honey Greek Yogurt or hash browns, when I shave my legs, while dancing alone, or taking blog pictures, laying in sunny windows, or sleeping in. I do it slowly and unhurried, in the moment. Deep breaths with a smile on my face. Smells. Yoga sessions could last for hours, savasana, a complete trip to nowhere. Food tastes so much better when it lingers over each area of the tongue. I close my eyes a lot. I love earthly pleasures. To be fair to my husband, I am sure it can be super annoying to live with, and it does not create a very productive environment when it comes to taking care of “business” like dishes (over piled in my sink) laundry (mountains) and obligations (ah, tomorrow). Living in the moment has its plusses and minuses.

Apparently, I still love blogging and bloggers and blog watching, but there are so many new pleasures that have been getting in line recently. Lately, I have been really into dancing. I just found the Feist album, Let it Die and just want to play “Inside and Out” over and over and dance with my eyes closed. I am sure I will find a happy medium somewhere.

I AM so happy to be wearing my Sabrina dress again today! I found these shoes during the great reorganization Saturday and was excited to wear them after taking a couple years off from them. I think I bought them in 07 at Old Navy actually! Crazy.
