My sister writes poems

My sister Mandy travels, A LOT. At times she is only home for a few days before she heads off to another destination! My other sister Chelsea writes poems, one of which she recently wrote for and about Mandy and her travels. One I would like to share here. Enjoy!

in twenty seven years

each time your foot steps

onto another jet plane

i can feel a separation,

a distance, a cavity of space

as though the womb of our

mother that once held each

of us has nearly forgotten

that your blood and mine

are a mixture of the same

resonance, with intonations

that are different, but

complimentary

so many things know you.

so many places have seen you.

the most emerald of grass

and bluest of ice-

sea levels of height

and depth- and each

enhance the color after you have

explored them, changed them,

loved them

while the space moves

in and out of us, space never splits,

never divides, and never damages.

rather embellishes an alliance

that could never be forged by

time or expanse. we are cellularly

fastened, more than blood and water.

everything you see, makes my

life more amplified. every word

i write sits in your ear

you are more than my sister.

you are my world traveller,

my seeker of newness,

my fighting ally,

my maker of music.

-Chelsea Nelson

In other news this weekend, I was hanging out over at my neighbor Seth's apartment on Sunday after church and other such Sunday activities, meeting new people and eating some food. talked about rock climbing with some people, having lots of fun. When out of no where Seth, Matt and a kid i have never met before come out with their guitars and start singing. After a couple of songs they decided to serenade me! ha ha ha it was a riot! Seth sang about how we met and the kid i didn't know sang about my purple hair and Matt sang about how cool I am! ha ha it was great!!! I do believe that was the first time a group of boys have sung to me!

Kid I don't know, Seth and Matt

Valentines Day


Affection should never be forced. period. This upcoming "holiday" puts too much stress on people who are in relationships. and upsets those who aren't. its another reason for hallmark and other stores to make people feel like they have to spend money on their loved ones or they aren't a good husband or boyfriend, or even a good friend. to stores, its just one big paycheck. they don't really care if people love each other, they just want the money. Valentines day, like so many other holidays, has become so much about the spending and the money and the "things" we get and give, that people forget the real reason we have such holidays. I'm not saying its bad to spend money on a loved one. i just think its more important to love them, than to spend money on them. people should know you love them cause you say it, or show it in small actions. it shouldn't be just one or two days a year. it should be every day that you show your loved ones that you love them. Every one should know that they are loved every day. Don't wait till Valentines day or their birthday to tell them, tell them now, show them now. leave a note, a message, a text. pick a flower, give a hug or smile. SAY I LOVE YOU. That's the most important one, tell them. all the time, don't let them forget that you love them!


I'm going to take my own advice and tell you all that i love you! cause i do!

I LOVE YOU ALL!!

until next time!...

Songs that...


Remind me of summer (Boys of summer by Don Henley and Cruel Summer by Banana Ramma) should not be played in the middle of winter.

Recall

My car has been recalled. This upsets me seeing as I just made my third payment on it. So now I have to take Leon (my car) into a dealer to get it fixed. I find this annoying. Though in the long run I would much rather have to wait a couple hours for them to fix my car than be on the free way going 75 mph, needing to stop and being unable to cause my throttle is stuck in the "go" position.
That could end with disaster and quiet possibly, my death. I'm not okay with that.

i was told not to scream at people


my sister has informed me that typing everything in caps makes it seem like i am screaming at people. im sorry. i did not mean to raise my voice. i will no longer type with caps.

SUNDAY WITH THE FAM

YESTERDAY I DECIDED THAT I WOULD GO OUT TO SALT LAKE AND SEE MY PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, COUSINS AND MY ONE SECOND COUSIN. OH, AND TO GET A FREE HOMEMADE MEAL AND DO A LITTLE SHOPPING IN MOM'S FRIDGE.
MOM DID NOT DISAPPOINT WITH DINNER. SOME SORT OF BALSAMIC STEW WITH BEEF AND CARROTS AND EVERYTHING IN IT. OVER MASHED POTATOES. SPLENDID.
DAD DID NOT DISAPPOINT WITH GOOD HUMOR AND A BIG BEAR HUG.
AND MANDY DID NOT DISAPOINT WITH CALLING RIGHT AS I WALKED IN THE DOOR! THAT WAS PROBABLY THE BEST PART! TALKING WITH MANDY AND SEEING HER OVER VIDEO CHAT, SHE LOOKS GREAT! AND WARM, 85 DEGREES IN NEW ZELAND YESTERDAY!
ALWAYS GOOD TO SPEND TIME WITH THE FAMILY, DONT GET TO SEE THEM MUCH SEEING AS I LIVE A FEW CITIES AWAY. SURE DO LOVE THEM.
SAW A FRIEND WHILE I WAS DOWN THERE AS WELL, ALWAYS A PLEASURE SHAUN.
ENDED THE DAY WITH SAYING HELLO TO MICHELLE AND SETH THEN WATCHIN SOME FAMILY GUY WITH DEVIN. ALL IN ALL A VERY GOOD DAY!
UNTILL NEXT TIME....
