What a Difference a Day Makes...

Holy Macaroni. I have just fallen completely head over heels in love. Today, Matt and I saw our little baby! Baby was sucking its thumb and Momma lost it. Mr. Ultrasound Man had to keep chasing baby's feet around cause baby was excited to meet Mom and Dad too. I just cant believe it-what a beautiful beautiful experience....

Now let me introduce you to our little one:

I thought belly buttons weren't supposed to start popping until later. Hmmmmmph. Dr. said there is no such thing as 'supposed to' in pregnancy. 18 weeks and going strong.

Grandma. Miss. You.

Too sweet to pass up.

This video reminds me of two things both related to my Mom. One: she used to collect these odd sculptures of heads: fisherman, pirates, old, young...we had a huge collection that hung on the wall. Second: my Mom sending me to camp! Some of my bestest, most favouritest memories are from sitting around the ol' campfire singing rounds. I know I just posted about the Fleet Foxes, but after seeing them on Tuesday and falling even more in love, I am allowed.

And this is my favourite picture of the night: taken by my true love-Matthew.

My cute little pregnant friend sent me this excerpt from a book (“Science, Soul and the Spirit of Nature: Leading Thinkers on the Restoration of Man and Creation.” By Irene van Lippe-Biesterfeld) she is currently reading and it has really resonated with me: Humility! Where are you?????

"I think that love is an active NRG while gratitude is a passive NRG. In terms of the sun and moon, perhaps the sun is love, the active NRG. The moon is gratitude, the passive NRG. In the case of fire and water, fire is love and water is gratitude.
Water is H2O. Nobody knows why H2O makes water. Because fire cannot burn with out oxygen (O), O could be considered love. And hydrogen (H) would be gratitude. So two gratitude’s and one love together (H2O) make up the basic composition of water…One love and two gratitude’s. A metaphor for this may be, for instance, a fish who produces roe-its babies-but lets other fish eat its roe. This is one love and two gratitude’s on the wa (harmony) of nature. Love is “for me, for me” gratitude is “for you, for you”.
Now we humans have reduced the composition to one love and one gratitude. That’s why this world has become materialistic. The population increased and nature was destroyed. But the essence of water, of nature, is one love and two gratitude’s. If we understand it and if we live accordingly, we can quickly return to the way it used to be.
I hope you understand: In this case, I refer to the Japanese conception of love. I am very aware that Westerners have specific sensitivity about love. But true love consists of one love and two gratitudes. I hope you understand."

The most beautiful songs in the world.

Have you ever heard a song and been so moved or so inspired that you cry? If you haven't I recommend the following:

Sigur Ros: Glosoli
Flaming Lips: Do you Realize
KD Lang OR Jeff Buckley: Hallelujah
Ludwig van Beethoven: Moonlight Sonata

And just to get you started, here is Glosoli. I once gave a presentation on this video and how it reflectd modern art ideals. It was for my 20th Century Art History class.

Could this be any prettier?

i scored 4 tickets to the fleet foxes at richards on richards next tuesday: how beautiful is their music? this is a cover i stumbled upon with two girls singing in the middle of a forest- perfect. they are 15 and 17 year old Klara & Johanna Söderberg from just outside of Stockholm. their band is called First Aid Kit, and they are very worthy of being on repeat for at least one day....

Somethings I love....

i have been feeling sad lately, and was advised to start concentrating on the things in my life that i love...here are a few.............
