My mom came home today, she'd been in Arkansas taking care of my uncle for the past 2 months.

I love my mom, but she wasn't even in the house an hour and I could feel my blood pressure rising. But I think its a big reason I love her so much-she takes a lot of energy. Its like an active love, an embracing love. She still drives me crazy sometimes.

Its ok, Yoga starts in one week.

I had an exceptionally good day today.

Its such a funny thing to make new friends when you're an adult. Or maybe its just me.
Either way, I'm thankful for the ability and opportunity to always connect with new people, in childhood or adult life.
Friendship really is a blessing, and I think we only begin to recognize it as such when we get older-
When are parents stop scheduling play-dates for us and we realize we have to figure out how to relate to each other on our own.

Simple things can be really epic to me.
Like relating with someone on some big or small level.
[resembling past pains or ordering the same soy chai latte]

I think God showed me a little more of Himself today.


I am far, far from a photographer. With that said, there's something so fulfilling about taking a picture of someone and waiting in anticipation to see how it will turn out and if they look just as beautiful in black and white.

Yipes, is it getting stuffy in here?

I was reading a handful of my old blog entries, I was so serious. I think 20 was my maturest year. Now I'm just happy.

Let's even things out by saying I disco-danced my toosh off tonight.

And I want "Boo-Ya" to be my new catch-phrase. So definitely watch for that.

polly p.

On a river of sighs
A doe came to watch me-a flimsy disguise
Covered the devil
Who sang from a song-sheet of how modern life should war

In his choirboys attire
He sang me the life to which good girls aspire
Where men in white coats give us pills to tame the horses that stamp on our floor
And pills for when the horses have bolted out the door

So the devil sings higher,
"Oh, just look at what you're doing,"
He's joined by a choir
Of doctors and statesmen
Who plan their sorry lives 'til the last day's end

But look at all the happy things that happen by accident


I think this song will forever be the mantra of my life.
It seems like no matter where my heart is, God always finds a way of reminding me how perfectly he can take the ugliest things and make them into something much more beautiful and bigger than myself.

June 2001

sophomore year

"To my dear cool guy Joey,
You are awesome. Simply stated, you are the most awesome guy I have ever met. You are someone I will never, in all my years on earth or in heaven, ever forget. Your friendship has been a great thing in my life. I hope we can still get together over the summer.
Love ya,
