teddy bear fur, and patches of blue

From floral patches of blue, and singing songs into the night, I come to you.
I fell asleep holding onto my teddy bear named tangerine. I awoke, and I felt so young. I truly truly believe that teddies are the way. When I was just a girl with a body of bones, and two little feet, I fell in love with a teddy named Rusty.  In the darkness, he was pink. By the sun, he blushed red.  He was my friend, and my cuddling companion.  When my eyes rained over spilled milk, he had a place for my tears. In my imaginary head, he was just as real as you or I.                  As life passed, I began drinking milk instead of spilling it. My conscience became my teddy.   I realized Rusty's thoughts were my own, and that I didn't need a scruffy teddy of the finest blush to tell me them.

  I still have a deep love for my teddies. I cuddle them when I can, but the truth is,  my teddy is no longer fur and beads. My teddy is flesh and bones.  The one I cuddle now is an imaginative & kind human being who rocks by my side.

I don't think one can ever be too old to hold the soft of a teddy.  

 Hello snow of Saturday. 
Today, I'm going to eat cheese on 17th avenue,  bond with a love, write a song about it, and fashion an outfit for tomorrow. Tomorrow is a day brimming with goodness.

Sunday will come. 
I will arise early in the morning, cleanse my skin with water, drink a cup of coffee, and dress for the Wolford Stocking fashion show.   My darling friend Adelaide is my date, and I can't wait to spend the day ogling over tights, and colors, and delights.  Then we'll eat lunch, and talk about the things in life that make us happy, and the things in life that make us sad.

 Tomorrow evening will come.
I'll add glitter to my eyes, wedges on my feet, and a fitted red dress.
I'm going to the Rufus Wainwright concert, (two free tickets!!) courtesy of CKUA radio.  
Me and Momma can't wait.

 So much bliss in one day, I don't know how to take it! 
Maybe I'll just scream weeeeooo at the top of my lungs.

I am feeling lighter. Life is brimming with MAGIC.
The empty cup of memories I never seemed to fill,
is now spilling.

A week went by, and everyday was golden. 
I sang, I ate, I saw new faces, met new names, I walked by city lights, I connected.

 Tomorrow brings Adelaide, Fashion show,  Kensington avenue, and Rufus!
I'm tickled from head to toe in whimsy. 
I've got nothing to worry about, so I worry about nothing.

 "If I should buy jellybeans
have to eat them all in just one sitting
everything it seems I like's a little bit sweeter
a little bit fatter
a little bit harmful for me"

"Your skin is cold
But the sun shines within your hold
Your hair is gold
But you see through a goldfish bowl"

May goodness come your way,
and sweetness fill your cup.
Happy Weekend everyone!
