The most beautiful poem anyone ever wrote for me...

Out of Nowhere
Kiza L.

He is mine
But more, I am his.
I was unaware of how I needed him.
Needed this.
A mysteriously interesting stranger
Older and more experienced at life and at love
Sensual and sexual
Handsome and strong
But vulnerable and somehow lost, looking for something or someone
Looking for a friend or even just an open mind to listen to his thoughts

A smile on his face that said to me, "I love"
"I love"
Not loving anything or anyone in particular...just, "I love"
I was addicted
How can "he love" that?
I want to be...what "he loves"
How can I be...what "he loves"?
Because I can see, from one his eyes...Oh, how he loves.

The first time he speaks to me, I
I feel confused by my immediate and almost un-worldly feelings for this stranger who "loves"
I submit almost immediately, because I felt I was supposed to.
I felt like submitting to this man, this mysteriously interesting stranger, sensual and sexual,
handsome and strong, who "loves"
Was my part of this new path I had started on, only a few weeks before he knew me.
A path I was put on to improve my self and know myself better
It was obvious then he was supposed to be a part of it

After only a short while, I became what "he loves"
And I loved him back
Without reason this feeling came over me, enveloping me
I love him
It's beautiful and it's inexplicable but it's mine
He is mine
But more, I am his.
Out of nowhere.

Race Day!

I entered the Austin 10/20 today—10 miles, 20 bands. I didn't think I could run the whole thing, so my friends and I walked. 
My bib...

The starting line.

The bluebonnets were out!

The finish line!

My Treat Tonight

Casa Shoehead is back in effect!

I recently moved to a new place in North Austin, after almost two years in Georgetown. It was quite a stressful move, and I'm happy I can settle down and relax. I put up my "banner" yesterday. ����

Banana Muffins and Joe Walsh

Today is cold and rainy in Austin TX. I had a stressful dream that woke me up at 0630 and I couldn't get back to sleep. I decided that banana muffins would be the remedy. As I pulled them out of the oven, Joe Walsh came on the radio reminding me "Life's been good to me so far..."  I realized God was speaking to me. Even though I don't have a Maserati that does 185, I do have a lot more than a lot of other people. 
So, today I'm thankful for everything I have, including these $1.29 package banana muffins, and the fact that I can enjoy them with a nice cup of coffee; warm and dry in my own place with my two beautiful dogs. (They were pretty darn good muffins, too!)

Happy March, everybody!

This is how I started my day, and therefore, my March. I must say, we're off to a good start.  ��

Bean soup!

I made another soup for the cold weather. It came out decent. I panicked and added some extra water, because I thought I had too many beans. Now the soup is a bit thin and watery. I should've stuck with my instincts—two quarts, no more.

Having a great day!

Good morning, Bocce!

Bocce peeking out from his blanket. Get up, Bocce!

Blue Hole is quite full after the storm

Normally, the water level us 2-3 inches below the dam, and it can be crossed without getting your shoes wet. The waterfall on the side is about three times larger than normal. It looked quite impressive!
