Today Is Where My Book Begins.



This is a verse from my favorite song (right now): Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield. It inspires me to write and today, I have begun. I'm writing a short fictional story called Furlough and I might post some of it here soon. We'll see.

Now if she'd only write a song called Unpacking, i might actually get it done.

why don't YOU write a song called unpacking.....and sing it on video!

(I haven't watched yet. won't i feel silly if that's what you're doing on today's YouTube post!!)

ha. yeah imagine me sitting around writing a song about unpacking instead of actually unpacking. did i mention that i HATE unpacking? but i'm doing ok with it. i'm actually finding a place to put things. that sounds simple and obvious but if you'd ever seen my old place, you'd understand. i'm determined to cure my clutter habits.

Piscean Princess said...

good luck w/ the clutter. i have that problem also.

ok, well now I feel really silly. i really didn't realize that there was going to be more singing (with instruments to boot) on this one. once i re-read the first sentence of the post it all made sense.

i like that song, but i never knew the words. that's one of those songs that comes on in the gym. it's a catchy tune but i didn't know there were meaningful lyrics. i'll have to investigate further.

on your next video i expect to see less still-packed boxes...

no need to feel silly. it was a good guess based on what i wrote :)

interestingly, my son Marius turned me on to that song. we'd be in the car and it would come on the radio and he'd say "turn it up, mom!" so then i started getting into it. it grabbed me from there...

the boxes...lol yeah. i'm working on that. i swear! :)

which one is Marius?

I read an article in the January Oprah magazine that made me think of you. It was about a lady who ended up paying some woman to help her unclutter her house. It involved a dumpster...there was crying and the whole 9. There is a room in my house that could use the attention of the woman from the article & the aforementioned dumpster.

Marius is the younger one.

yeah i saw that Oprah show too. Their clutter was out.of.control. i never got that bad. i was embarassed FOR them. i can't believe they allowed cameras in. but i guess that embarassment propelled them to do better. maybe nothing else would have worked.

got it!

well, i hope the unpacking is going well (or perhaps even over...)

did you meet the mayor yet?
