Oreos match with everything …
Whether it’s happening in The Great Outdoors, or sitting in front of my computer ready to start writing Chapter 1, The Quest is always a good road trip to self discovery.
Hanging around trying to look for Nemo and Dori when this ginormous dude just happened to pass by … I had to look up.
It made me smile.
When I saw this mural at the book fair I had to stop and smile.
You know, there are those days that catch you on the blind side even when you’re looking over your shoulder, they still flatten you right out. So when I saw this it made me smile.
Sometimes the universe sends you little signs here and there, just to let you know that even if you’re missing something there are other things that you have in abundance. Even when you can’t see it, there are little things like this that give you a moment.
And sometimes all you need is a moment during a really crappy day to help you turn the corner, a moment of breath to realize … yeah I got that.
So I stood in front of it, took a deep breath, and thought of someone I loved … a couple someones.
And then my kids ran out of Goldfish Crackers and were like … let’s go already mom.
To my four-year old daughter … this is pretty obvious … pretty concrete what she’s talking about and communicating here. However sometimes because of lack of sleep and parenthood in general, things tend to fall under the abstract category. But the sunlight shining behind the painting totally clues you into this masterpiece.
My favorites …

Love it when people dance like nobody’s watching even when everybody totally is …
