the jkb is a magical place

4:44 make a wish.

i've found that as i make a wish at those times in the day, they end up becoming silent prayers.


“It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we

are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.” -george eliot


i wished that day.
i was with one of the most delightful people i know, and as i left she checked her phone.

"4:44. make a wish."
i walked down the south stairs, and wished.
i looked at the clock facing me as i came down and wished.

then i walked outside the building, and part of what i wished for came true.
i ran back in to tell emily. it was fate, she said.

now. there are two eggs in the basket. plus a really little one.

That picture is pretty cool. Love the lighted heart on the paper towel. Very clever.

Remember that one time when Brant got set apart ( I think for the 3rd time) and I was sicker than a dog, and you were driving Joanna for me and you were like, "What time is it?" and I was like, "11:11." And you were all, "Oh my gosh, what DAY is it?" And I was like, "11/11/11!!!" and then the the song playing on the radio was track number 11??? that was so epic. Did we make a wish? Or did we just lose our shit for an entire minute and miss it?
