to sleep, perchance to dream.

2:37 am: The time my clock read when I unfortunately woke last night from a dream I wish I was still dreaming.  Actually it was a dream that I wish wasn't just a dream but instead my reality.  Rolling back over I thought about falling back asleep right away hoping to continue the dream, but even my half-awake mind … Continue reading to sleep, perchance to dream.

when the elevator door opens, you never know who will be on the other side.

Grey's Anatomy, and your damn elevators!  If you're a Grey's watcher then you know exactly what I'm talking about.  Unfortunately my elevator moment didn't involve a hot make-out session with a hot doctor.  Instead, my elevator door opened and well...there he was.  (My "he" not McDreamy.)  When the elevator door opens, you cannot run & hide.  … Continue reading when the elevator door opens, you never know who will be on the other side.

I had a dream...last night.  There's no real significant, earth-shattering proclamations to come out of my dream, but it definitely had me thinking about things during breakfast this morning.  It was my wedding rehearsal/wedding day- you know how dreams blur all the details together- and the wedding was taking place in Cleveland.  Which is definitely never … Continue reading a dream is a wish your heart makes

you once told me, our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch. is that true for everybody, or is it just poetic bullshit?

Women and elephants never forget. Dorothy Parker Another night, another dream about the past.  I hold Facebook responsible for placing old friends and memories into my subconscious mind.  From what I can recall, last night's dream was centered around a high school basketball game where many of my former teammates were present.  Come to think … Continue reading you once told me, our fingerprints don’t fade from the lives we touch. is that true for everybody, or is it just poetic bullshit?

when you’re dreaming with a broken heart, the waking up is the hardest part
