Original Song: Drift

Standard

 

Drift

Can I just lay my head right here

on that nook right below your chest?

The spot that I fit best.

Can I lay my head?

 

Can I just drift away, sink deeper?

I know later I’d pay it for a price,

but it’s worth this moment

just to get a chance to drift.

 

I should have met you later.

I should have asked what brought you here,

and flattered every inch of you

’cause I don’t know if I’ll get to.

 

You know, you’ll have to let me go?

I told you from the start. It goes to show

that I know everything.

Except if I should lay my head.

A Little Creek Runs Through My Front Yard

A Little Creek Runs Through My Front Yard

 

Isn’t this beautiful? Small signs of spring are starting to sprout from thawed ground, songs ring throughout the steadily thickening tree canopy, life wakens around every corner. The brook that borders my front yard flows brown; a willful winter absolution. Simply breathtaking. Simply springtime.

Mother’s Day Grilled Montage (because I didn’t forget Mother’s Day)

Standard

Do I lead with a causal explanation that it was yesterday when I realized Mother’s Day was this Sunday. Or do I invent a cover story, knowing that my mother is probably my most avid e-mail subscriber?

Both?

My forgetfulness really shouldn’t be taken personally, Mom. I routinely forget about my cup of coffee only to rediscover it hours later. I am constantly finding myself absent minded in front of the refrigerator without any intentions of consumption whatsoever. I somehow seem to emit sheer inattentiveness everytime I pull up to the ATM consistently leaving my debit card (enough to put me on a first name basis with the tellers at my local branch). Long story short..I tend not to remember things.

So, uh, don’t be mad Mom. I still have time. I’ll grill you dinner. Here’s a sneak peak of some recipe inspiration for Mother’s Day 2014. 😀
