us girls

My eldest will be 13 this weekend. It is difficult to believe she has grown so quickly.

She inspires me with her wit, intelligence and talents. She makes me smile.

Happy Birthday, my Lil Boog! I love you!

the OC Remix

For quite some time, I've been a fan of OverClocked Remix. If you like gamer music, you might like this site, too.

Click to browse gamer music or to find and download free remixes. And since they've got great free music downloads, it's nice to help support their bandwidth by making a donation, or by purchasing a nifty tee like this one found on

On my playlist, there are lots of OCRemixes. Most of them are from my favorite Final Fantasy RPGs, though the list of remixes available are too numerous to name.

Today I found some stuff I'd not heard before.

Time to load up the iPod!

darkness of light

Tonight, the moon is full.

Camera in hand, I snapped this quick shot. Beautiful night.

But, I'm angry.

Disgusted with certain people who form groups to celebrate their hatred of other people. Groups who, in their complete stupidity and utmost cowardice, kill others for no purpose other than to feel... um, powerful?


These hatemongers I speak of, serve no purpose to humanity whatsoever. Their ignorance is so utterly complete, I dare say, there is no saving them. They are useless, save for the wasteful sucking up of valuable oxygen and the taking up of precious real estate.

Yes, I too sound a bit dark. I do feel a hatred for what the KKK believes in. Where they stand is the absolute opposite of me.

KKK sends death threat...

Klan group on trial...

Oklahoma woman slain...

And it continues to baffle me, how a group like the KKK continues to exist to the point of being organized.

It would seem to me, the peace-seeking peoples of this country would eventually have enough of such nonsense, flush out all these crazies and deal with them accordingly.

Another thing that has always driven me nuts! What is it with neighborhoods where shootings always happen at night to the point the neighbors are numb to it? No one seems to notice anymore. Something I hear going on in parts of Dallas. Or in the following recent case:
Neighbours reported hearing gunshots at Mrs Donnerson's home in the gritty Englewood neighbourhood on the city's south side yesterday morning, but no one raised the alarm until Hudson's sister Julia returned from work and discovered the bodies in the afternoon.(Source)

Ugh! It makes me sick.

Little value, life has...

What does it take to wake up~~~

Note to hategroups:
Send your death threats HERE. I'd love to hear from you. Oh, and please leave your current address and phone number along with your ignorant vitriol.

I do love the night rain.

codebase=",0,28,0" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal">

Particularly, when I'm on edge.

There is something soothing about the sound of falling drops tapping on the back porch. It is like music.

And the scent of rain, sweet, new.

The children smell like rain.

I do so love the rain.

Another beautiful day.

This one coming after a most spectacular night with a Milky Way sky and a fingernail moon.

Yesterday, leaving the Dallas Metro for Possum Kingdom State Park was a welcome break from the concrete maze.

Though, once again, we arrived at our destination late, the brilliant stars and peaceful cool air soothed our souls.

The gentle footfalls of small deer that approached us as we scanned the sky, magical.

Innocent faces of curious youngsters, with bright eyes and shiny noses, sneaked up on us in the darkness, whilst I fidgeted with my camera. The night's serenity broken only by the calls of coyotes in the distance.

Lucky for me, my family goes along with my road trip whims. Else, we might not enjoy such moments as these.

Yes, yesterday was quite lovely.

And then, came today.
