the new and the scary and the downright foreign;


[i have oh so many words i want to scribble down. so many. some not so nice, and some filled with hope and plans and classic mackenzie schemes. and although they are about to fall out of my ears, i’m going to save those words for after i finally eat a real meal (no food in the house means i’ve only had coffee, orange juice, and half a bag of craisins today.) because no food and endless thoughts of the new and scary and foreign change that is so close you can taste it is a surefire way to get a cranky-pants mackenzie on your hands. so for now, some quotes of encouragement, lovelies. ‘cause we could all use some of those, right?]

“strange as it may seem, i still hope for the best, even though the best, like an interesting piece of mail, so rarely arrives, and even when it does it can be lost so easily.”

                            -lemony snicket.

the very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. and the most you can do is live inside that hope. not admire it from a distance, but live right in it, under its roof".”

                   –barbara kingsolver

“there is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable or feeling ultimate bliss. it is necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live…the sume of all human wisdom will be contained in these two words: wait and hope.”
