you're so muderous.

i awoke at 6:30am, almost in tears. definately afraid. as i may have mentioned before, i lost my mother exactly three years ago last sunday to breast cancer...but anyway, i had a nightmare last night that i lost my dad too. it wasn't to sickness though....he was shot. murdered. and i witnessed it. the scary thing is just a few years before my mother was even diagnosed [about 10yrs ago or so...] i had a dream that there was a driveby shooting [we live in a very nice neighborhood too ironically] and my mother was the only one who was shot. this frightens me. a lot. these past few years have been really rough between my father and i, especially when i moved out for a year. however, this past year [since i've moved back in] my relationship has strengthened almost 100%. one of the scariest parts of the nightmare was where i ended up having to care for my 3 younger siblings. it was honestly devastating. thank god it was only a nightmare.

i went to boston yesterday. i have been so busy since then i havent been able to get my pictures [yes, yes...almost 800 of them-no lie!] in order....ill try to post some later.

i am exhausted...

five for peace.

so today was quite fun. i started my morning out with a bowl of kashi [as usual] and great conversation. i am still in massachusetts visiting relatives, so i was trying to weasel out the daily plans from them. i'm the kind of girl who is usually spontaneous when either alone or with friends, but when it comes to spending time with my family, i like to know what we are doing first thing in the morning that way i can prepare for the day. we finally decided to head to north hampton [MA] to do some window shopping, picture taking and to eat some delicious vegan food...

[when i was trying to take this pic, a woman in a wheel chair came up to me and livie, stuck out her hand and said "five for peace"....it was quite the topic of conversation later. haha!]

[as we said goodbye to our afternoon]

thats all.....
