Oooh this looks like a fun one- thanks for the tag!

...and it will forever and consistently be broke....

...and there it is. :)

Every now and then you write something on this blog that makes me incredibly proud to be your sister. You have a light and humourous way of talking about things that might--if one is not paying attention--belie the depth of thought and the insight.

I think you have a gift. And you know I'm not one to flatter. If it ain't true, I ain't sayin' it. I don't care how much I love you. (Yet another reason I'm glad you had a pretty baby.)

And since I don't have a blog, I'll just share my favs here without as much commentary:

Book: The Passion, Jeanette Winterson (gender-bending magical realism set in Napoleonic times--France/Russia/Venice)

"Somewhere between the swamp and the mountains. Somewhere between fear and sex. Somewhere between God and the Devil, passion is and the way there is sudden and the way back is worse." pg. 68

Movie: Shawshank Redemption

I woke up the other morning thinking about the focus and perservance and eye toward justice that Andy Dufresne had. I just need a fraction of that to fulfill my dreams.

Album: New Beginnings, Tracy Chapman

I know every song. Every word. Every inflection. The album came out in the fall of my senior year in college. It became a permanent part of my life. The soundtrack of a crazy year. (Of course her other albums all follow in ranking.)

thanks for the comment! I'd have to agree with Lauryn Hill as being part of my tryfecta - although recently I cannot stop playing Alicia Keys latest album.
