If Tomorrow Never Comes...

Been going thru several songs installed into the iTunes that's sitting in my computer compiling various OSTs to suit myself, and have realized that a number of my personal favorites takl about tomorrow.

Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
- William Shakespeare

I guess the next day is what keeps me going when all else fails. The promise of something new and fresh. Something that I haven't experienced yet.

That is what tomorrow is.

. . .

*laughs* That's me going thoughtful again. Merry Christmas guys!

The light changes when you're in the room.
If tomorrow never comes
I would want just one thing
I would tell it to the stars and the sun
I would write it for the world to see
And it's you-ou-oooou
The light changes when you're in the room
Oh it's you-ou-oooou
Oh it's you

If tomorrow never comes
I would want just one wish
To kiss your quiet mouth
And trace the steps with my finger tips
And it's you-ou-ooou
The light changes when you're in the room

Oh it's you-ou-oooou
Oh it's you
Oh it's you-ou

Oh it's you-ou-oooou
Oh it's you
Oh oh it's you
Oh it's you-ou

- It's You; Michelle Branch "Hotel Paper"

Many thanks to Meridian for the lovely icon of Sean Bean that now sits in my LJ.

You are Form 9, Vampire: The Undying.

"And The Vampire was all that remained on
the blood drowned creation. She attempted to
regrow life from the dead. But as she was
about to give the breath of life, she was
consumed in the flame of The Phoenix and the
cycle began again."

Some examples of the Vampire Form are Hades (Greek)
and Isis (Egyptian).
The Vampire is associated with the concept of
death, the number 9, and the element of fire.
Her sign is the eclipsed moon.

As a member of Form 9, you are a very realistic
individual. You may be a little idealistic,
but you are very grounded and down to earth.
You realize that not everything lasts, but you
savor every minute of the good times. While
you may sometimes find yourself lonely, you
have strong ties with people that will never be
broken. Vampires are the best friends to have
because they are sensible.

Which Mythological Form Are You?

Sound-tripping and an all around good day.

I'm home from Festival Mall and stuffed with the baked chicken (minus the breadcrumbs) that was my dinner. My Tito Rene is downstairs marveling at the DVD player that is my Dad's and two Christmas pressies now sit at the bottom of the tree.

Aside from that, Flip, who has finally u0pdated his blog is talking to a darling friend on the phone - could be Sis, could be someone else, but I am here and listening to My Immortal loop on iTunes.

Spent a particularly interesting morning cuddling a fluffy shih tzu at my coach's house until the classroom session for hockey headed by Tsiarls and Reiner pushed through. TJ was there, Dani as well. And Dad, somewhere in the background listening to the breifing just as much as me.

Christmas is next week - but somehow, at the same time it seems a million year away considering that I'm not exactly all a-fluff about it.

I'd like to be. But the song playing in the background won't let me.

I miss a lot of things. And, annoying enough, the dreams that have been following me around for several days now have every bit of participation in it.

I'll have to admit openly now to Harle, and the rest of my girls - and even to Athens that yes, I have not been sleeping as well as I would like to be. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be my choice on whether or not I float in spaces all-too familiar and all-too vague at the same time. The same 'mall' that seems to symbolize my world, varied things that strike me odd, and a man who makes my heart skip a beat when he looks at me. And I know he feels the same way.

Stranger to know with a kind of uneasy certainty that I will not meet him here. Not now, at least. And it doesn't help to ward away the comforting chill in the air that doesn't, no, it doesn't make me want to cry in all drama and such, but makes me wonder instead if a crystal ball and all other wishes and spells and such in the books that sit on my shelf are the solution.

Naturally, I know the answer to that - every modern day and avidly practical witch would.

No. Cards, divination tools and such are not the solution. They are simply what they are - tools. And the magick lies in the person and not in the objects.

Damn. I want to get working on Points of Five. Unfortunately, I have to sort out several things first - such as the damnable script of FOTREE, which is in my My Documents inside the file folder of POINTS OF FIVE - but won't copy and paste properly onto MS Word so that I can print it out, small font and all.

Again: Damn.

. . .

Song For Today:

I linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don't say I’m out of touch
with this rampant chaos - your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
the nightmare I built my own world to escape

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

-Imaginary; Fallen

. . .

If I ever failed to see
Know I never meant it
If I ever failed to note that you stood there crying
Know I cried inside for us both

Knowing that things could never be.

"Do not cry for me...
I will see you there.
... and I will know your name."
