(best roommate ever)


"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around?" Kathleen Kelly, You've Got Mail

For someone who loves to write and is entranced by the written word, I am constantly frustrated at how hard I find it to put how I am feeling into words.  That's why I am so thankful for the genius of others and masterpieces such as You've Got Mail where I can garner bits of wisdom and put them on my blog so that others can read them and understand a little bit of the mess that is me.  Oi.  Sometimes I am weary from living vicariously through stories in books and movies and brave friends.  And yet, at the same time, I am terrified of having my own adventures, terrified I will fall short or crumble under the weight of the unknown.  Hmm, just a thought for the day...

At the expense of relating to a fictional character once again (although I can't really complain because Kathleen Kelly is awesome and who the heck wouldn't want to be her?!), maybe I will find myself a witty and adorable mystery man who also happens to be rich though I don't care with whom I correspond over email and meanwhile open my own book shop. Now that's a good sounding adventure. BEST PLAN EVER. 


  1. it is a good adventure! & don't feel bad, i feel like i live my adventures through books & movies too... they make it seem so much easier than it actually is. ha!

  2. I would definitely go to your bookshop!

  3. bahahaha! .... BAhahaha!

    You always pick the most flattering shots of me.

    We are both Kathleen. Through and True.
    We with both find our Joe's.

  4. Same here...I love writing, I just can't put how I feel into words. Idk, maybe I just don't want people to know how I feel.
    You only have so much time...have as many adventures as you can!


  5. Cute roommate picture! I too love to write and am loving that quote you posted...something to ponder for sure! :)
