its gone.

today i watched a bird fly into the wind. he flapped his wings with great intensity, mustering all of his energy to progress against the storm, carrying something in his talons. try as he might he just could not move forward. in a momentary lapse of flight, perhaps from exhaustion, like pausing to take a deep breath before forging on, the wind carried him back a ways as he dipped a few feet closer to the treetops. he waged war on the winds and pressed on. he moved forward, slightly ahead of where he started, and while pressing harder still, he tried to regain the height of which he once had attained... when the wind pushed him back and back down to the tree tops.

its raining again.

we are stuck in front of the tv.

i have two papers to write.

I'm feeling that bird. No wings, no wind, my whole life in my talons...and those damn treetops won't get farther away.
