So much has been going on recently. It's kind of like.... I'm watching my life in the form of an hour glass, but my line of vision only covers about a meager inch of it at a time...that inch happens to be the neck of it right now. All I can see in any given moment of present thought is the sand seeping through the tiny hole and rinsing the sides just to settle at the bottom. Problem is, I see it flowing and I start freaking out. Then I remember I can step back, and I do. Then I realize all the sand coming out, at a rate I thought to have been as if lighting fast, was only infinitesimal in contrast to all the sand that was left. But instead of grains of sand falling out I see little dandelions that erupt in little puffs and settle to the bottom of the glass making the mass to appear bigger and more liquid than before....ok, maybe not, but it just kind of came to me as a really interesting mental image just now :) But life really is falling away at a rate I can't exactly measure or determine how to regulate...But it's one of the most beautiful things I can recall experiencing.What has been so beautiful you may ask? Well let me show you a few of those beautiful moments :)
One of my wonderful friends had a ballet audition and
Another exciting moment; I was able to go to the Salt Lake temple again for the first time in about two weeks. I know it sounds silly and you're probably asking "Two weeks? That's really not all that long is it?" Well I typically get to go every week and it fills my heart with a calm and a sweet .... sort of light filled...pulse. And when I don't go I feel like my entire week is thrown off kilter and then I need to find stability all over again. So that's made it incredibly bright as well.
Continuing in way of enchanting: I found a magical little place
with a few other friends a few days ago. It was once upon a time a Cafe used for our school's cafeteria of sorts.They remodeled and added another portion at some point though, and this little wing is no longer inhabited. But I can't for the life of me figure out why! It has black and white marble floors with green marble accents, cherry wood booths, walls and chairs and even the bathroom plaques have an elegant flair with ladies holding parasoles and the men in suites. There's also a brick patio with scrolled iron patio furniture and tables encircled by a small garden and a swinging fence to match. It's positively the most lovely thing I've found in Salt Lake aside from the Union Station. However, that is for an entirely different purpose.
And since we're talkin about escaping to something unworldly I'm gonna toss something else in too :) I saw "Where the Wild Things Are" for the first time last night. I loved it. I've heard mixed reviews, but it was really a work of art in my minds eye. There were so many calculated parallels from Max's life to his world, spiritually parallels, as well as moments that just oozed nostalgia for me. Tender.I had a good conversation with a good fellow about it too. Best movie analysis/heart to heart/piece of poetry in the form of a movie that I've seen in a long time. I give it a hug instead of two thumbs. Is that ok? haha, It's gonna have to be
I'm afraid aside from all of these other things there isn't a whole lot going on in life right now. Haha I know I said so much was going on, and in small ways they are. At least that's the way it feels. Everything is just happy. The world is mostly good and the sun still shines and the sky is still blue. I'm excited for this weekend. I get to go home for the weekend and road trip it with my roommate and one of my best friends and at the end of the journey I have a timeless friend and my family that will be waiting. This is a perfect time to see my family. There are some things going on at home I just recently found out about and I feel like I need to be there so the family can be a whole for it. Heavenly Father has kind of guided me to it as well and everything is working out perfectly. I'm so thankful for it. I'll let ya know how things go. Till then! All my love and more :) Peace out girl scout.
"Where the Wild Things Are" - not mine. Got it off google.
