A Collection of Magical Moments.

Lady Snap appreciates the little things, yo. (And the not-so-little).

A Good Day to you, my Dear Reader.

And greetings from Snap and Sweet Husband’s Study, which is adorned with architect-like, chalkboard-drawing wallpaper. Pendleton comforter. Window admitting a delicious array of morning sun.

I’ve got coffee breath, and chocolate donut taste on my tongue.

The denim covering my legs is comfortable, with authentically-acquired tears and paint splatters. Cozy plum-colored sweater. Three precise spritzes of Björk & Berries perfume. Scandinavian honeymoon memories.

. . .

Perhaps I feel like the truest version of myself while in fiction.

. . .

There are so many magical moments in this life. So many chance encounters, decadent desserts, and quality pages to be read.

I’ve sojourned through a period of mourning, for all that was and will no longer be.

And, it’s done, love. Over. Finished.

Time to let it vanish in the October breeze, and to focus on the here and now.

. . .

I am extremely strong.

I might not be able to do pull-ups like I did in high school, but I kick ass in ways that matter, yo.

My body won’t win any beauty contests, but will accomplish so many incredible feats. Journeys. Pleasures.

It will withstand a lifetime of joys and sorrows.

(she gives herself a tender hug)

. . .

I kiss works of art on the lips.

. . .

I revel in the simplicity of life.

I live free from dogma of any and all variety.

I recognize how many things can go wrong in this world, so I savor every opportunity I can.

Because no one will remember how cute my makeup was or the numbers on that merciless scale.

They will remember the laughs, the loyalty. The singing. The passionate pleas to appreciate real music.

The being.

. . .

I, just like you, Dear Reader, am forever changing.

And yet we’re the same.

And so very fucking beautiful.

  1. I love your choice of words, your writing captures my imagination. For example, I’m going to give you a taste of my corniness…whenever I read ‘yo’ in my head sounds off with a tune, ‘yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum” Told ya!
