i just feel so light and carefree. and happy.
i haven't been able to say that in a very, very long time.
i'm listening to "shadowland", from the lion king: the broadway musical on repeat, and oh oh, i just adore it so much. i think it is one of the reasons for why i feel so at peace right now. oh love, i can't describe how this music stirs me. j'adore.
am waiting for downloads to finish, and making cds so i can send out mail. <3 weekends. but i also love work, and don't dread the thought of monday morning tomorrow. i'm pretty lucky, you know? although i am on switchboard later on this week, and that kind of makes me a bit stressed sometimes, but nothing i can't control. i'm pretty much caught up on all my work anyway, so it should be fine.
&oh! my mother & nan suggest that it might be better to go to england in spring, rather than autumn like i was planning to. i said that i didn't know if i could wait till 2005 to go, and mum said she was thinking of spring next year, not the year after. that's only 6 or 7 months away! of course, it depends on how well i save -- but with something like this looming, oh oh oh. i really could be going to visit england in the next year, and that makes me so excited. my first real overseas trip. even if it didn't happen for more than a year or so, it's still exciting to plan & dream - but even more exciting when it could become a reality. oh, my excitement runs through my veins like blood right now. i looked through books on england while i was in bookstores this weekend, and i wanted to press myself into the pages and magically appear on the underground or in convent garden <3. but one day!
ahhh. i hope this feeling lasts & lasts. it just feels like anything is possible if i try; that there's so much in the world that i can take in & breathe in & be a part of. perhaps yr mind is the only boundary after all. i just feel so inspired and eager and anticipating the things to come.
i feel like this song transforms me. oh, breathe your magic into me...
shadowland, be my guide <3
