The book on silence fully pulled me in.
There was narration about a silent retreat
and healing, renewal, constant revelation, internal revival
and I could feel my skin rise
felt the blood spread under my ears
and my deep breath
and a sign of peace I didn’t know before
like in “Pretend” where it says,
“beginning and ending
moment by moment
rolled over rebirthing again.”

There was such sincere connection to the narrator’s experience with silence.
My heart felt so good.
There was laughter without bursting into sound.
I suddenly wanted so bad to shout it out to the girl across the room,
“I get it! I totally get silence!”
But I didn’t.
I held that rare moment in my mouth
and savored it;
kept the joy for myself
instead of talking till it wore away.

That's kind of how I feel about most of the things going on in my life lately, and that's why I havn't written here in a long time and never fully discussed my summer trip to Chicago, all the new people I've met lately, the Ani D concert this past Wednesday, or the past few monthes with anyone.
Talking about these things will only make them lost to me. I feel like this journal is over but I'll keep it because I think it's still an important part of me.
It's really strange how much I feel like I've changed lately. None of it is easy to explain, and I'd rather not anyway.
I can just say that I'm enjoying this, every minute.

Ani DiFranco.
Is coming to Austin, Texas.
On October 18th.
I am so excited that I can't form complete sentences.

Problems:
It's on a wednesday night.
It's 30 bucks (which my parents consider a ridiculous amount of money).


BUT I WILL GO.
I WILL.

So does anyone want to go with me?

Anyone want to go see Ben Kweller's pre-show at La Zona Rosa on September 14th by chance? Since I'm poor and can't go to ACL...

So the funniest thing happened when we went out to dinner for my birthday.
We went to Chuy's where they do the whole staff sings to you and gives you ice cream, but my family never does that sort of thing.
So I hear the clapping of dishes start (instant sign of birthday song) and I go
"OH WOW WHO'S BIRTHDAY IS IT?!".
If you're a little slow it was for me.

Okay fucking a-maz-ing people who I totally wish I could be?

Darryl Van Leer, Daneea Badio, and Angelica Osborne.

P.S. Sorry folks who still havn't gotten letters/postcards from my trip. I need to get stamps! I have it all but no stamps!

P.P.S. I'm looking into volunteering at Top Drawer, Doug's House (hospice for AIDS patients), or a supper club at Roosevelt Gardens (transition housing for HIV/AIDS patients and their families). Anyone want to do any of these things with me?

Shiz. Ben Kweller's new CD is coming out in September.
It's bad enough that I won't be able to see him (or any of the other awesome peeps at ACL) because I'm not rich but it looks like the pre-ACL show at ACL is sold out already.
GIZZAY!

P.S. I've already heard Penny on the Train Tracks from the new album and it's great so I'm hoping the whole album is fantastic.
