vancouver
endless desire i was tired of vancouver not being a link. it deserves to be. unlinked words looked lonely and unloved.

vancouver.
god, i can't wait.

User24 no, unlinked words are special, they break the monotomy of underlined words 030619
...
endless desire difference of opinion 030619
...
User24 re: lonely and unloved, they're full of potential!

-and-

if I start a new blather, within the next 2 days, someone will have added to it, however, if I don't it could remain unblathed for years, kinda odd..

nom so many thoughts of vancouver
rampant in my heart
hardly a day goes by without
thoughts of my old stomping ground
childhood and schooling
growing into oneself
losing myself
in the city
forging my way though the crowds

remembering the week i left

the way one misses what has passed
feeling betrayed by little regrets

glad for what is gained

I cling to the fragments of yesterday

vines of reminiscence

those days forever in my blood

memories of seagulls
the sunshine and rain
spanish banks
the steps
so many shops

the scent of the ocean

the friends i knew and loved and those i will never see again

puddles in the streets
cherry blossoms

the confusion of concrete and steel
the mayhem of closeness

i have been a citizen of this city
the weight of memory locked in its measure

how i would tell you of its beauty through a child's eyes
its inspiration in a young girl's heart
the way it can take you in and never let you out

how much has it changed since i last roamed its streets with the ghosts of my past?


when i think on it now, with so many illy composed words and mixed emotions, it's almost impossible to even begin telling you of my days spent in vancouver,
the city of my kin
030620
...
endless desire nom-that was absolutely beautiful.
user24-yeah you have a point. unlinked words have potential. i like thinking of it that way. but they still look rather lonely in my opinion. words that no one has cared enough about to blathe on yet. i guess i could look at life that way, though. the way you do. that it's not that they are unloved or lonely, but just full of overwhelming potential. you may be changing the way i look at life. though, nearly everything these days is changing the way i look at life.
030620
...
User24 yeah, me too, I go through more life changing experiences than the average Nirvana fan says Kurt and sighs.

I like the way phrases stick out on funshiney_test_page

endless desire this is great
when i am a senior in college
((in vancouver of course--i was reading about the university of british columbia last night))
they will be having the winter olympics there
2010. god that is forever a way
i am so young and it is driving me mad.

i like figure skating. i wanted to be a figure skater when i was younger. though, i have only ice skated 3 times in my life. ;)

nomme Olympics are good and not good/ulimately everything is positive/negative!

good idea for the city bad idea for the city

our premier is a liar and a loser/everyone is beautiful and my friend!

it is going to cost a lot of money to stage this at a time when BC is undergoing radical shifts/changes and government social funding is being slashed at an enormous rate. solutions need to be rethinked so as not to harm.
things my grandkin worked hard to establish are being undone by this unjust government
homelessness on the rise what a suprise
lets keep the protests alive
! SOS !

i think these things are decided not by the cool ppl who want to help the world with peace love and understanding but by THEM ... we all know who they are (who ultimately do help the world)
who_knows ?
we will see what unfolds!
030704
...
no reason i was told to decide in an hour whether or not i could come.

which, really, is impossible

i just hope the half i chose works.
030704
...
no reason ohhhh...now i want to go july 29th...

sarah_slean is one of the few artists i really would try and follow. it's an added bonus that most of her performances are free...
030704
...
no reason anyone gonna be there near the end of august?

yeah. didn't think so.
030807
...
misstree nomme, i want to pick your brain about vancouver but don't want to take up blather_space... do you have an email addie? (there wasn't one when i clicked on you. *childish pout*) Or should I let my brain_picking hang free in the breeze? 030807
...
nomme wow
click_me now?
other than if maybe somebody here has been spamming me without my consent, i don't believe i have ever been emailed by a fellow blatherskite.
feel free to probe my mind.
i have to say though, there is probably a fair chunk of stuff i don't know about Vancouver.

imposter is burning down. . .

and the sky has finally fallen

notme please don't say that
nightmares have heavy trampling hooves

oh wait you already did say that

so my plea is useless

Nukemall BC is where I want to breathe.

But BC will never be where I work (if you call it that).

Vancouver is beautiful from a distance.

...
nom i kept my transfers

they're different from before
they used to be paper, greeny
now they look like bank cards
060406
...
nom thicker paper, black strip
you don't show it to the driver
there's a transfer reading machine
060406
...
no reason i liked how the passes were good for an hour and a half
made everything so much easier, especially for a visitor
060406
...
nom i think they used to last longer
if i'm recalling correctly)
still 'good' though.

nom "Affordable housing means housing that costs a reasonable amount compared to a personís income. In the Greater Vancouver area, the average rental cost for a one bedroom apartment is approximately $800 per month. This is half of what someone working 40 hours a week at $10/hr earns before any taxes or deductions. Those living on a working class income should spend no more than 30% of their pre-tax income on housing."

no reason it's strange when you're on "vacation" somewhere that was once/feels like your home. i haven't really done many touristy or "typical" vancouver things, i've just been enjoying being here.
i'm leaving it today and it feels strange and too soon and kind of wrong and makes me sad.

a clever disguise Lady, all the troubles are my fright, I disgust you.
Feel the power. You cut the truth into you.
Why? Do you think I'd hidden out? On this rely
I could kiss you, with lines of escape in my mouth.
Please, let me bring back this gifts of mine to the woman.
His eyes shined on my back as I slept and knew you.
You didn't leave it all. You made an even call.
My belly released the stars and tears between the
scars.
We're where we belong, it should end here,
until the end of time,
Beyond the moment that ends our bondage.
I am your failed husband contender,
I'm your loan shark of bliss.
This dream you've ridden on turns your world to explosions
You need to be alone to heal this bleeding stone.
Now, smell the rain of London, it still insists
That we beg for our purity.
As if we are pure in the rain of our contentment,
As if I can think of this no more.

duh
120119
...
n o m pff we're not that much more north or different from seattle, it doesn't usually get this cold and snowy...we have been getting more snow the past winters though than before it seems. 120119
...
n o m it's more the ski hills that get snow... 120119
...
no reason vancouver has been getting more snow than toronto, it's weird 120119

() (still looks good for mid-march. probably staying at the shangri-la. that place is out of control upscale. too much for me but clients like it. i hope the weather holds because we will be shooting partly outside. i will continue my exploration of gastown and chinatown. yay.) 120208
...
n o m (let me know when you are here if you want to hang out if you have time this time). i am maybe going to seattle mid-march but that is just for a day or something. living on an island right now working on music, but i go into the city at times, it's not far, am going to be spending more days there. 120208
