I carry your heart...

Okay...I'm new to this, so cut me some slack, girlfriends...but i think i have finally got something to share. I really didn't want to bore anybody with the banal details of my life, in this blog. (I mean, other people write about those things and they sound fun and interesting...I just sound self obsessed!)...I really plan to share what i can with you, of any extraoridinary thoughts and experiences i have. So, that maybe means I post daily, maybe it means not very often, lol!

I saw an extraordinary movie the other night with my dh...In Her Shoes starring Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz. Having two sisters, this really spoke to me. Both of us were touched deeply by the film. I absolutely loved the poem read at the end by Cameron Diaz to her sister on her wedding day. It is by e.e. cummings..

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I am planning a layout using this poem, because it touched me so deeply! If it touched you as it did me, and you use it in a layout, please share it with me!! Post a comment with a link here, and I will go take a look and leave you some praise!

I hope I get some time to scrap it, myself, soon!

By the way, Dani B. did the flowers in my blog header, M. underwood the alpha, lisa cohen the doodles and paper, me the music, nicole hinrichs, k. pertiet and adobe studio the paint splotches...I need to credit where credit is due!....However, I will be changing it to a much smaller one, as soon as i get a bit o time, though! :)

Start as you mean to go....

That was the fabulous advice my mil gave me just days before i married her ds!! I found that advice meaningful and useful in my first few weeks of wifehood, trying to put my best foot forward, but not overdoing it, and having to answer for that later when life prevented me from being perfect!

Well, that is also why i have not posted as of yet in this blog! Thank you thank you thank you, my very closest digi scrappin buddy Robyn England, for getting this set up for me!! But days have gone by since she did, and I kept thinking, I'll just wait, because it should be perfectly customized before my first post!!

Well, those words "start as you mean to go" keep haunting me!! I am so NOT perfect, and that is my dear digi scrapping friends, this blog will not be perfect, either!! lol! And I know you will be forgiving of that!

I am waiting for Robyn (busiest lady I know, but accomplishes soooo much in a day, she is really amazing) to show me how to add links on the right (I'd like to see my friend Peggy Brutcher there, for one!!) and also a slide show!!

So keep me in mind, and tune in often!! I will even have a freebie or two for you when I have my GRAND please, stick around! :)
