Finally!!! saw @hamiltonmusical w the roomie last night and it was like a whole dre a m ✨ time, honest to goodness, passes so so fast, y’all! when we got these tickets last year, april legit felt like a lifetime away. and yet, this semester, with its short ups and many valley downs (thank you, lord jesus) has flown right by, and last night, i was finally in the room where it happens πŸ–€ sksjdjaks also, last night had me feeling like an old woman bc i don’t go out often, much less for myself during the semester, and coming home last night seriously felt like me and felicia were the parents who never go out taking a rare date night and coming home to the kids doing homework (but this morning, as i realize the need for me to take time for myself, i am reminded in the most timely way, much much /much/ more, to take time to be with the lord. lord, teach me to sit down and delight in you 🍎) skjshdhs also me last night walking home from the bart station like “the last time i was out this late was in college” ”my back hurts” l**o grandma alex settled in during the training and never left.... this is the rest of my life, y’all, i can feel it in my aching bones πŸ‘΅πŸ» photo ft. vintage shell purse i straight up haven’t used since i took it w me to watch a production of hamlet in college. evidence was left inside 🎟 sks;jsjsk do i even go outside frl

and lastly, some verses i hope will water you as much as they watered me today: 2 cor. 5:17; jer. 17:7-10, 12, 14 πŸ–€

Today, my wanderlusting heart misses this lifetime away... where my person wasn’t bound by a rigidity i have no control over and my soul didn’t cry for reprieve. yet— “a little bird i am, / shut from the fields of air, / and in my cage i sit and sing / to him who placed me there; / well pleased a prisoner to be, / because, my god, it pleaseth thee.” — madame guyon (hymns, 724) πŸ•Š

here’s to a lifetime i didn’t know was fleeting until it was gone. to all the castles i’ve seen and not seen, to bluer days with candy skies, and to all the photos i took in france with my little camera πŸ“· i don’t even know what happened to that camera. all i know is... pre-iphone blackberry me had to lug around so many things... and yet, in retrospect, as contrary as it may seem, those were... indubitably, much... much simpler times ☁️
