for all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these,
'it might have been'.

- john greenleaf whittier

sorry friends, i have been absent and it's mostly a long story. if you've been following along for a bit you know i had my adoption interview for lil' joe, it didn't go my way friends and i have been heartbroken, sad, out of sorts and in major say the least. hold tight, i will be back in april and i'm planning a little vacation that i think (read: hope) will get be just the thing to jumpstart the next chapter of what will be. thanks for your patience and well wishes. i miss posting, but just can't for now.

'Supposing it didn't,' said Pooh.
After careful thought Piglet was comforted by this.”

seek patience
and passion
in equal amounts.

patience alone
will not build the temple.

passion alone
will destroy its walls.
