walk on

I know a girl that collects Precious Moments.
Me, in the back of my guy's truck.


I don't know when it started,
 but she's been doing it for years.

Many of them are gifts,
 & some are figurines.
 
One of them is an angel.
It tops her Christmas tree.


I collect precious moments too,
but mine are different than she.

For I collect words,
 songs, scraps of paper,
images, as flashes of memories.
Things I want to remember.
Possibly frozen moments in time.

from Janel at Run With Scissors.

from one of my best friends.

from Kimmie bear at Crazy 4 Scrappin.
from Katja at Maedchenmitherz
from my darling girl Er.
from my dear friend Charity at A Lovely Little World.
My guy with our twin nieces.
Some people that I love.
I used to see a view like this, every time I went outside.
Every time I looked out my living room window.
Every time I drove anywhere in my car.
Now it's just something I see when I visit.
For I don't live in the same place anymore,
but really, do any of us?
For none of us are static.
We're always changing, in some form or another.
Some would even call it evolving.
I don't know what I call it.
Blah, blah, blah...
Me acting goofy.
Walk on... Rock on.. 
Neither one is right nor wrong. 


Movielike Lyrics
Artist(Band):Jimmy Eat World

"My face coming down in streaks...
Not the way I hoped for
 Welcome to New York... 
Nothing movie-like
Nothing magic
People just tire to fight the constant battle
Waiting to see a sign?
Then you've seen the best already"...
