and its quiet interlude of thought.
drinking a glass of wine after a late night coffee.
coffee that leaves the skin and the heart warm,
and making you trace fingertips along the brim of that empty cup.
maybe like wanting to remember
or simply to let the taste linger
just a moment longer.
and right now,
i like hearing the wind of the storm outside,
its a bit calmer now. and hushed.
but taunts in a lull, as though again
just to remind you of the presence.
here i am.
and in between all of this,
star star is my gentle musical companion.
just like this constant play, stop, rewind,
that strums thru the heart.
yet always wanting just to pause or simply fast forward
and keep bodily beautiful moments alive
and close by my side.
like that cup of coffee. tonight.
"star star. teach me how to shine shine.
teach me so i know whats going on in your mind."

this weekend had a few precious moments.
time alone. time with friends.
martina and the girls downstairs.
making wishes. and day dreaming a little too.
smiling with blossoming hyacinths and tulips
all in purity of white.
finding an old dresser for little things like
teacups and teapots and porcelain.
or spending sunday afternoon at a market with elisabeth
and then sitting in the car in a parking lot
talking just a bit more
because as girls,
there are always so many things on the mind
and in the heart.
but i think what i'm really holding on to
and that cup of coffee that made me smile.
pause. linger. and play that song again.
