zebra in furs



 
Happy Monday peachlings.


I am resting in my cave, by the mountains of florid pink sheets, and butterfly hues. A dim light bulb replaces the sun, and the space heater replaces the summer. A cold brew of root beer on my tongue, and all I want is a hug.  The strangeness of my week has been undesirable.  No sleep for my head. No pillow for my heart.  It's Monday, and the hustling week lies ahead.    While I sit covered in  metamorphosis, it is healthy to keep myself occupied.   By Tuesday's air, I will be studying, greeting a new friend, journeying towards open mic night, and sipping a late night brew.    I am attending a fashion mixer on Wednesday, and a cosmetics gala on Thursday all whilst studying for a Math final Friday.   The lonely girl of once 17, is suddenly a busy bee.



For my current being, not all is alive in pain and war. Just when I've bowed my head, to escape the cloud, I see cocoons everywhere.   Throughout my week, there has been handwriting on the walls, and  little hidden symbols.          Saturday morning, there was a bug's bumble by my ear.  It's been 5 months since a warm-breeding- season. This tiny bug, how is he alive?   Rest assured, I didn't squish him or panic. I said hello and marveled at his wing-speed.          Saturday evening, I was reading a book while treading sweat on my indoor bike. With the displeasure of a headache I put the book down, only to see a burst of brown jiffy by my window. My heart beatings were stretched in shock, and wonderment.  At once, a baby deer was beaming..  I live in the city. The direction of the window faces my neighbors yard, which is gated by fences. My imagination is not so wild.  There is a mystic, and symbolic meaning to all of this.... signs of life..
 
"The deer is linked to the arts, specifically poetry and music in ancient animal lore due to its graceful form. The Celts also believed that deer were associated with the fairie realm, and would lead troops of fairies - hundreds of them trailing behind them as the stag cut a path through the forest."





 

Today was a more pleasurable day.  In spite of extreme tiredness,  I carried a smile and shine to the fifty percent off day at Value Village.           By 7 bells, I climbed out of the forest, brushed my teeth, drank my water, soaked my skin, and put on peachy lipstick.   The morning was flooded by winter's breath. This meant, a knitted type of hosiery enclosing my feet was very much needed(socks!)
 
Two hours passed forging, scouting, dusting my shoes, and pulling the frizzles out of my hair.    Good bye 50 dolllaaaaaaaars!    On any other day, it would have been 100.     For the first time(possibly ever..), my plastic bag was fed by basic colored-fabrics.  My most treasured purchase was a darling white banana republic blouse, purchased with pocket change...


  Before I nap, or bathe, or write down my goals and dreams. I will toast a garden veggie bagel, and finish my root beer.   I feel inclined to spell "root bear" , there's something much sweeter about the sound.   
 
For my costume, I was a zebra dressed in furs...Trying to connect to the animal kingdom.  The skirt was bought on my birthday(forever 21).  I can envision it with platform heels, a white chiffon blouse, and a glass of bubbly.    I apologize for the dirty boots... It's hard to stay polished when the snow is so temperamental.  One day, heated by the sun, the snow will melt.       
There is another world, but it is in this one.

Hope your week is greeted with soft touches, and smiles.~



Sweet Kisses !!
Amy

    Knock out- beauty. Wow. Speechless, as always. Please feel better soon. Change is good, you need it every now and again. The only change you can't do is cut your hair, its far too lovely by your pretty face.
