Ginger tea, The Nanny, the arrival of two free hardcover novels, complimentary coffee made just how I like it, SYTYCD marathon tomorrow, falling asleep to Enya, 9 o'clock warm breezes, new blog readers, the sound of champagne uncorking, quotes from The Wizard of Oz, beautiful photos and the hope for good tidings to come this week...(please please please)
dearest readers, I'm a big believer in the transformational power of thoughts. Wish on every star and the full moon for me that I get a teaching job in the next week or so! The uncertainty is starting to make me dizzy...and I'd really rather be on solid ground, so put your thoughts behind me and maybe we can move mountains, yes?

"This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total misreading of the movie The Graduate."
"Oh Scarecrow, I think I'll miss you most of all."
"This isn't real. You know what it is? It's St. Elmo's Fire. Electric flashes of light that appear in dark skies out of nowhere. Sailors would guide entire journeys by it, but the joke was on them... there was no fire. There wasn't even a St. Elmo. They made it up. They made it up because they thought they needed it to keep them going when times got tough, just like you're making up all of this. We're all going through this. It's our time at the edge."
"It's gotta happen, happen sometime, maybe this time I'll win."
