and you've opened the door for me.

because under the stars 
in the dark of night
you walked the shores with me
ran into the ocean with me
dived through waves with me
and you skipped, and you spun and you sung
"look up look up look up into the sky love. you see those stars shining so high up above us?"
i see those stars shining high up above us
but all i need to do is look at you
you are my shining light
so bright, so bright
you bring happiness
my new door.

when one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us

i know i know i know..
i'm looking  at the wrong door.
i know.

problem is, i don't know how to shift my view,
how do i look for that new door?

i have been tagged by wonderful Rosie Posie Rosie to do the four tag! thank you love!

A: Four places that I go to over and over:
the sewing room at school, 27B(a flat that's soon to relocate to an amazing 1950's beach house!),  the trees that are down a few houses from me- two huuuuge trees hang over a driveway and are absolutely amazing for climbing and having deep and meaningfuls. and the red studio(art supply store)

B: Four people who email me regularly:
my dad..that's it actually. i get emails from facebook, myspace and, but i don't think they count as much,

C: Four favourite smells:
vanilla!! fresh air on a cold but sunny morning(i swear it smells different), good coffee, his smell.

D: Four places I would rather be right now:
wednesday jazz night at the orange zephyr(which is where i would be if it hadn't shut down. damn recession!) climbing the trees with antony, driving to nowhere, watching movies in bed with him..

E: Four people I tag:

F: Four TV shows I watch:
i don't ever actually watch tv.. but i do enjoy project runway, americas next top model, gilmore girls and friends.

i'm currently looking for ball dress inspiration..i take two sewing classes at school and for one i'm making a wedding dress and for the other i'm making my ball dress.

i'm a little stick though. i'm thinking something backless..with a wicked feature at the front and lots of floaty fabric.. maybe an over-the-sholdour look.. or maybe something short and fun..i don't know.. it's my last year and it needs to be good. any ideas?

i used to think that the day would never come when my life would depend on the morning sun.


so i need you now. you shine bright and you are my hope.

i haven't posted anything in a while cause i've been super's a quick rundown of my past week and a bit.
i started school again.
i got a car! yay! ..and had my first car crash(which was not my fault..they drove straight in to the back of me)
i also got a laptop! ..and managed to break the charger already. which is super inconvenient  cause it has all my school work for sewing on it. which leads me to the next thing-
i'm making a wedding dress for school sewing (which i am absolutely terrified about screwing up)
i also started my new job which is so much fun! 
more recently, i jumped off a really high cliff at the waterhole yesterday..and i am still way too proud of myself for doing it haha. that, plus a wicked house show on friday night and Joes 21st last night made for a good weekend.

and my darling friend Amanda fromHere Comes The Sun gave me my first award.

i'd like to pass it on to Tigermilk who has a lovely blog filled with beautiful photographs.

these photos by Bec Parsons reminded me of Derek Hendersons, and i love them just as much.

you are my sunshine, my only sunshine. you make me happy when skies are grey. you'll never know dear, how much i love you. please don't take my sunshine away.

look up into the stars, love

i built a house and lived alone inside the woods
i stayed there as long as i could until he said it was doing me no good
he said we're all living lives of a quiet desperation
i started to believe him so i looked up to the constellations
the starts were burning bright so bright and bright and far apart
well them together though they created a work of art
look up look up look up look up into the sky love
you see that moon shining so high up above us
it rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
i like to think it does just because he loves us

i left them lonely woods and i moved into the city
traded those stately pines for concrete and prairies 
didn't have to look up at the stars burning in the night sky
i saw them burning the eyes of the people that were passing by
some are bright and bright and burning happily along
others had sadly burned out long ago
look up look up look up look up into the sky love
you see that moon shining so high up above us
it rolls around on account of a bunch of scientific stuff
i like to think it does just because he loves us
