The Lake of Innisfree- William Butler Yeats

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

red sox game 9.26.14

one of our clients gave my work 2 tickets to see the game from a suite..a suite that’s over homeplate and two boxes away from the general manager- see the creepy bottom right photo i took. there was also a television in the bathroom, so as not to miss any of the game. i got to eat unlimited cupcakes, pizza, ice cream & drink all the beer/wine. i also met koji uehara & red sox hall of famer, fred lynn. my bff & i were actually talking to him nonchalant cos he was sitting next to us, then a camera crew came over, he stood up, went on the jumbo tron, & everyone cheered- that’s how we found out who he was! nicest guy.

even though the sox were just playing for fun, not keeps, i am so grateful for that experience!

while gathering info on the NH state park we’ll be camping at in may, i came across a nearby state park i had never heard of before (milan hill state park) & as soon as i saw that top, left photo, i booked it! we’ll be staying in a yurt on top of a mountain in september- it’s so popular, that’s the next possible date they had available for our weekend-only camping schedule! but i think that works out pretty well, since up near the canadian border, in late september, the foliage will be at its peak! i’m wicked excited for this.

See ya soon, mountain-top yurt!

Currently overlooking home plate at Fenway from the heated seats of a suite. Hayes has been puking all day, so my bff filled in for him. We’re gorging ourselves on food & drink. Meeting players- past/present, while trying to network. Adulting!

We grew one last zucchini, but it was tiny. On the way home from work there’s a farm run by an old couple. They are sweet and only have a handful of produce left to sell at their roadside farm stand, so they gave me that giant zucchini for a buck! We turned half of it into pizza- delicious. The other half will be our camping dinner Friday night at the mother fucking yurt!

my friends dad just died. like literally, an hour or so ago. he had cancer. they only found it a week ago, so yeah. i feel so bad for her, her family, that poor man. i even started to cry when i heard the news- he danced like a crazy kid with all of us at her wedding last year! he was my dads age- not even 60 yet. not that age matters.

but lately i’ve been thinking so much about how my dad (mum too) could die at any second. he is so stressed all.the.time. he is a heart attack waiting to happen. his dad died from a heart attack (after 2 open heart surgeries, all that stuff). like, aside from how would i be able to function in every day life- cos my parents are literally part of my every day life- if that were to happen, how could i go on knowing that he’s leaving a household behind; his own business behind? we haven’t talked about that stuff. i really think we need to- if he died, it would be up to my mum and i to take over his business (he runs it himself/he’s the only employee) and decide what to do with it moving forward. in an ideal world i could take over and run it, but who the fuck are we kidding? i still need to pump myself up to call to order a pizza. how the fuck could i deal with actual clients with actual companies.. and more importantly, how could actual companies take me seriously? i look like i just turned 18, i sound like i’m 12. 

i’m sitting them both down at some point this week to talk about the “what if’s”
