para mi amor

if i was a poet, this would be my sonnet.  

i am thinking it's a sign
that the freckles in our eyes
are mirror images
and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned

and i have to speculate
that God himself did make
us into corresponding shapes
like puzzle pieces from the clay

and, true, it may seem like a stretch
but it's thoughts like this that catch
my troubled head when you're away
and i am missing you

when you're out there on the road
for several wks of shows
and when you scan the radio
i hope this song will guide you home

they will see us waving 
from such great heights
come down now
they'll say

everything looks perfect 
from far away 
come down now
but we'll stay


Big Bird Says brings me back

it reminds me of: my mom's voice. reading it before bed. the end "now YOU tell ME what to do".

so i was catching up on some things on my DVR tonight and i watched two episodes of jon&kate+8 back to back.  i found this show way back in the early days b/c i am one of those suckers that LOVES(D) to watch the stories of multiple birth families.

in the early days, i enjoyed watching the tribulations of caring for 6 infants day in and day out.  seeing all of the little things it took and how freaking adorable the kids were.  i loved figuring out their personalities from a wee age.

i am sad to say that this show has jumped the shark.  after watching the two episodes (one old and one new), i finally figured out what had been bothering me about this show of late.  it's the lack of interaction.  in the old episodes, the family would do things together, interact with people outside the immediate family, play.  jon and kate would giggle together about things the kids had done.  if you look at the most recent episodes, there is none of that.  no real interactions, no giggles.  just lots of eyerolling, screaming, and passive/aggressiveness.

i will NOT get up on a high-horse about the ethics of this family.  it's really none of my business.  but it is sad to see such a loving family become one that spends most days independent of each other.

could it be editing?  sure.

but i, for one, will only stick to old episodes.
