no regrets.

Standard

ah, the choices –

to play it safe

 and go for the fudge, chocolate chips, or mint

or to venture into something

a little more adventurous perhaps

like playdough or potholes?

 

“fear is stupid. so are regrets.”

gangsters.

Standard

our 5th grade boys

milling around

excited and nervous and happy

decided they were going to do their ‘gangster walk’

on the way in to their graduation ceremony

in their suits and ties

jackets thrown over shoulders

and i had to smile

when i heard them

strutting by

singing ‘sweet caroline’

at the top of their lungs

i’m betting neil diamond would take it as a compliment

and when they went inside

they recited their kind words

sang school songs

watched as pictures of their younger days

flashed upon the screen

and finally ended with a beautiful candlelighting

i’m proud of these gangsters

as i’ve known some of them since they were 3

before they even knew what letter ‘gangster’ started with.

 

“any distraction tends to get in the way of being an effective gangster.”

pack rat.

Standard

happy national pack rat day – may 17th

There’s a fine line between holding on to nostalgia, and being a serious contendor for an episode of Hoarders. But just for a day, you are permitted to openly cherish the growing stack of Signals catalogs piling up in your basement sans any judgment of concerned family and friends. Who knows? Maybe your Beanie Babies will become collectibles again, and the joke will be on us.

and 2 very different philosophies from 2 very creative geniuses on this subject: 

 

“i want to lead the victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.”

-freddie mercury

“out of clutter, find simplicity.”

-albert einstein

 

team freddie or team albert?

living room.

Standard

and on the last night they’ll ever spend

in the only house they’ve ever lived

before moving to their wonderful new location for their wonderful new adventures

we celebrate by finally getting to eat in the living room without sneaking.
