Honey thoughts.

Those sweet sweet reflections that summon pulls of nostalgia. A melange of things, really. I've been quick to jot them down so they can't wander away again. And they've filled up the first several pages of my pocketbook. I like to note them as honey thoughts. Some are too sacred for this space, but there are a few I'd like to share. 

On gray, murky days, tracing rain drops on the inside of  the car window as they travel diagonally across the glass. Pinning one drop against the other -- seeing who wins.

How my mama used to play piano on the steering wheel to a certain oldies tune. And I'd giggle at her accuracy.

Sitting in Grandma's suitcase, hair a mess, bottle dangling from my lips, pretending it was my personal bed. And dozing off each time amongst her Chanel No. 5 scented dresses.

Peanut butter sandwiches while I was sick. And only peanut butter sandwiches.

He and I. Taking a walk in the field on a breezy, warm mid-spring day.

Do you have any honey thoughts?

  2. driving on a road to nowhere with no place i have to be, typing out the license plates of cars that are in front of me

    finding the coziest, softest, blanket and rubbing it until i fell (fall) asleep

    writing messages in mom and dad's blue couches in the living room because if you did it a certain way, you could see the darker image in the fabric...then could erase them with your palm

    watching endless hours of nickelodeon shows like rugrats, gullah gullah island, rocko's modern life, salute your shorts, hey dude!, and singing every word of the opening songs at the top of our lungs while holding my beautiful baby sister in my lap (who was singing right along with me)
