coffee with love

i love coffee. and found things make me happy.

I'll love you dear. I'll love you till China and Africa meet.
And the river jumps over the mountain.
And the salmon sings in the street.
I'll love you till the ocean is folded and hung up to dry.
And the seven stars go squawking.
Like geese about the sky.

i found this in TopSupermarket on Willis street.
the text is sweet and amusing. i am in love.

i think there are many things to be grateful for. so with a lot of inspiration from one of my favorite blogs

here are ten things that make me terribly happy...

1. the lovely smell of manderines and the citrus oil on
    my fingers as i peel them
2. trains that toot as they travel by people with waving
3. unexpected messages that make me smile
4. playing badminton, pool and pingpong all in one
    beautiful sunny day
5. scarecrows in Spotswood that dress up as Santa
6. goodbye hugs
7. looking forward to welcome home hugs
8. rain falling on the pavement on hot days
9. jandals (my new favorite footwear)
10. late night coffee with christmas mince pies

here's to happiness!

in the land of nod

i sleep deeply at night... and in the day. i love the warmth of my bed. i don't dream often and sometimes i feel as though no time has passed.
is it time to wake up now?
all i think of is home. and sleep. all day.

i want rest. and you. all to myself.

They exchanged glances, trying to recognise the emotions of the day before. For a moment each seemed unreal to the other - then the slow warm hum of love began again.

silence with you

remember when we lay down in the road together. holding hands. either side of the centre line with our heads just touching. watching the sky. a slight wind brushing across our faces. and we stayed. quietly. whispering. until we grew cold.
