Dear World, you are very random. But thank you for allowing me to realize that we can also choose to be the same.

The Sharpie Loves You
By Kat. :)

Not a day goes by without me saying my thanks for sharing a colorful world with colorful people.. Even if sometimes, it’s best enjoyed in black and white.

Ubuntu: I am what I am because of who we all are.

Ich bin running on three hours of sleep and nothing in my stomach. A mother would be pretty upset.

There’s a big chunk of tri-tip waiting to get rock-salted and thrown on the grill, but I need the help of 3 hungry appetites to weather the challenge. No takers yet though, everyone’s too busy running faster in their hamster wheel of perpetual slavery, loneliness, white collar pain and cubicle torture. Yes. Me too.

My hands are cold.

Valentine greetings from Team Paul, Kat, and Nickel!

Here’s to the lonely finding company, the broken finding hope, and to the happy the gift of forever. :)

My dreams have been vivid lately. The imagery is crisp, but unconventional since the underlying theme was more relational. Sort of like having certain unspoken expectations broken. And the way everything unravels is through vivid imagery, belying the real undertones of it all.

It’s always a struggle to get away from the pitfalls of your everyday. To believe that this is the day you’ll finally break away from the monotony and make your change. That you realize life is too short, days are too few, and wake up with the fear that opportunities run scarce, and regret lasts forever.

Too much thinking drowns dreams. And not enough, make them boring.

I need music in my life. Not the kind of passive soundtracks that clutter your commute in the car, accompaniment in the elevator. Not the overproduced pop junk that saturate airwaves.

I need the dynamics of live music. The obscurity of the artist that writes to seek his/her own voice. The palpable chemistry of a collective group of souls that individually, create their own, but paint the overall message. The strange calmness of getting lost in a thought, in a time, in a feeling.

The real world is a strange place. So much emptiness for us to conquer..

I found some music I’ve been really enjoying. Check out Mark Ronson‘s album ‘Version‘, and all the guests from the Nick Jr. TV show, Yo Gabba Gabba (The Shins, I’m from Barcelona, etc). I’m trying to find all the other stuff, but will probably end up buying the season DVD. I am really enjoying that show. A lot. Wow.
