Maine

Forested avenues line the city’s neighborhoods. Trees in summer hang over brick sidewalks, dipping passersby in New England charm and cool shadow. Duplexes of brick, with old tall pointed roofs and many windows, sit on State Street; they have been in the neighborhood since the 1700s. The hill slopes downward, into the land and away from the sea, down off the highest streets toward the park’s edge, where the glistening fountain waits there.

i fell into the future

just another little thing by me, corissa e p; quote and photo are both mine. i enjoy this because i feel it accurately reflects the ghostly way in which we move through time… we never realize how much we are spending and yet we spend idly and actively for love of people, pleasures, and places around us. we, in many ways, fall into the future unexpectedly, and it approaches us as a great wave on the sea. we are the ships without compasses, sailing through our worlds. love corissa Corissa HauryRidiculous, curious, most likely delirious.

My Take on Question 1

As the ever impending election approaches, I have been extremely loathe to say anything in public about it other than, “I’m washing my hands of this crap.” and even then, it’s still important to me and I’m still struggling with the idea of voting on Tuesday. That said, I do want to say what I think of Question 1, and why it’s important to vote “yes” on Tuesday. Marriage is an increasingly rare commitment in our day and age, and especially in my generation. The Pew Research Institute says that “In 1960, 72% of all adults ages 18 and older […]

Why getting fired was the best thing that ever happened to me.

A couple of months ago, I got fired from a crappy corporate job. I was in shock at first; very upset with myself. I had never been let go before in my life. I was the one still at my desk when others went for a smoke. I had tried (even when I didn’t like it), I had tried! I was baffled – my former boss had said I had to leave because I thought outside the box. You’re smarter than three-quarters of the people I know, but here we need people who read from a script, he said. He […]

fates

 image by seinong on flickr i’ve been considering a few things lately, but primarily fate and whether or not it is real, or made up in our own minds. the dictionary says that “fate” is something that unavoidably befalls a person. that is, something that will happen to you regardless of what you do, something out of your control. i wonder if this means that rather than thinking nothing is fate, that everything is fate. in your own life, everything happens to you, correct? things may unavoidably befall you on a frequent basis. perhaps someone at work is overly rude, or someone you know is extra kind.
