Bits + Pieces. The November life.

Happy Sunday// Front porch sitting //Blinded by the bright sun//Class searching for Spring 2013 term//Poetry writing//Leaves falling //Coffee in glass mug//Watering plants//Dreaming about future paintings + projects//Walking to church //Essay writing// Dreaming of one days sitting down at this very spot + reading all the books on my list//Next to no complaints//

Planning. Planning. Planning.

goodbye november. . .

hello december!

just where did the month go?

. . .

“november comes
and november goes,
with the last red berries
and the first white snows.

with night coming early,
and dawn coming late,
and ice in the bucket
and frost by the gate.

the fires burn
and the kettles sing,
and earth sinks to rest
until next spring.”

– clyde watson

. . .

it is hard to believe this time last year, i was back home working four jobs and packing for new zealand. how has it already been year?

i feel content here and i’ve been enjoying seeing just where the days take me. . . but, i still plan trips to mexico, indonesia, india, nepal, and uganda every moment of free time i get. . .  i am off to go talk to a study abroad adviser now and just received this little line from kandyce

“we need a tour guide in kathmandu. it doesn’t pay well, but it’s good company. let us know when to expect you.”

 if only i could!
have a happy december! enjoy being where you are right now.
it is time to start listening to songs like these {my personal favorite winter themed tune of all time}
