• mitchisms commented on the post, bow 8 years, 3 months ago

    bow or bow? i think of dogs and i think of bow ties. i’ve known a few people to covet the first and others to sport the other. both seemed like acquired tastes, each of which struck me as out of my range of interest.

    wade through the paperwork, only to find that it will still be weeks and weeks before anybody gets back to me. haven’t they heard of phone calls?

  • mitchisms commented on the post, crush 8 years, 3 months ago

    crush, i haven’t had one of those in a while. can’t say i miss it. can’t say i want it. can’t say much about it except maybe, well, my favorite kind is orange

  • mitchisms commented on the post, intense 8 years, 3 months ago

    intense is the word i normally use when i feel at a loss to explain some overwhelming feeling. actually, the last time i used it, i was trying to describe to a friend how i felt during and after i had finally seen van gogh’s self portrait in person….it was probably one of the most […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, predict 8 years, 3 months ago

    i rarely if ever try to predict anything. i tend to get most things wrong. like that time i predicted that that game would end with me winning….didn’t happen…never does…

  • mitchisms commented on the post, held 8 years, 3 months ago

    like held someone’s hand? or a doll? something that is held is taken to one’s heart, i believe or at least that’s what i think of. could be wrong. that’s been known to happen on occasion…being wrong that is.

  • mitchisms commented on the post, station 8 years, 4 months ago

    station makes me think of train stations and placement in life. on trains…i love trains. something that would have never occurred to me years ago until a friend told me about how he had traveled on them. its glorious…as for station in life, always as a point as to where you are…now that i think […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, painted 8 years, 4 months ago

    …the town red? paint it black… paint like…there’s no tomorrow? i think of covering things up. a light coat of paint over nails, something sparkly and shiny and not at all like the grim and residue that collect underneath.

  • mitchisms commented on the post, plaid 8 years, 4 months ago

    huh, not much to say about this one…maybe because i don’t ever think about plaid unless i have to, like now. don’t wear it and generally consider it an eyesore for the most part. just seems like too much going on in one spot. but, well, i suppose i’m simple that way and can’t fathom […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, radio 8 years, 4 months ago

    is what saved me as a kid. in the middle of the night, there was a call in program where, besides playing all kinds of music that i had never heard, gave people the chance to talk about some of the things that were troubling them; not a therapy session, but it definitely gave us […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, backpack 8 years, 4 months ago

    are very helpful. for the last few years, my life was contained in one of these. books, journals, directions and sometimes if i remembered, a protein bar. my life was being carried around in one of these and the fact that things are no longer like that, is kinda weird.

  • mitchisms commented on the post, montage 8 years, 4 months ago

    hmmm…i often feel as though i am putting things together out of nothing, but i don’t think i would call it art. pieces of things, whatever is near by, that i can use to assemble something, anything…

  • mitchisms commented on the post, remember 8 years, 4 months ago

    i think i remember doing this one already. remembering to remember is fairly important i would say. it reminds us of who we are, who we were and probably helps us define who it is we want to be when we grow up.

  • mitchisms commented on the post, remember 8 years, 4 months ago

    one of the best ways to remember anything is to try and retain the smell of things. i remember things and people based on what they smelled like or what was prominent smell at the time. once i had a boyfriend who, though we were suppose to split up, i missed; turned out i missed […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, despair 8 years, 4 months ago

    is one of my favorite words. its like, being at the last point with no other perceivable options until you really look at something and then you see it. there is more out there. this is not the only way but just one of many and it is up to you to pull yourself back […]

  • mitchisms commented on the post, canteen 8 years, 4 months ago

    is the thing that you bring when you need something to be a container for drink. and you forgot it. why? that’s not cool. especially up high, up here where the water is necessary for life.
