rebeccatillett (330//365) Throwback to Thanksgiving last year at a critical time in my life, just days before my move to Denver to embark on something new. This last year has been both terrible and wonderful, easy and difficult, exciting and devastating and I'm grateful to life for revealing to me, the significance of both. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you, everyone. 20h

rebeccatillett (325//365) "Hey Becky, if you guys aren't up to anything, andy and I are going to the candlelight for drinks and shuffleboard!!!" "Hey Becky! This is random but I just wanted to tell you how very happy I am that you found Regis, and me. You're a rare gem and I feel lucky to know you. And Mike - he's a good one! Okay, weirdness over." "I am so very excited to see you Friday :)" "I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don't walk away, don't be distracted, don't be too busy or tired, don't take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff." {Jon Katz} 5d

rebeccatillett (321//365) Blanket me with the soft shroud of the setting sun's fiery mantle of clouds before I get too lost in the cold dark of the universe, before the moon soothes me to sleep with its stories of brave explorers who long ago hovered sweetly above its lonely ground, before my fingers become raw with lucid memories of the earth's thorny skin. 1w

rebeccatillett (319//365) You would be 54 today, Dad. And I can hardly fathom it. Sometimes, it feels like the only language I know is time and we commune in years. I can still remember when we'd speak in days and hours and minutes, but it's been a while now, for both of us.

Fifty-four doesn't suit you anyway which is time for "you did the best you could." You'll never really be any older than 38 years, 1 month and 1 day.
Happy Birthday.

  •   stoutsta One of my most powerful memories from high school was you telling me about what had happened with your dad-the day after it had happened and I remember thinking " I can't believe Becky came to school today" I couldn't then/and can't now fathom that feeling- you are an extremely amazing person :) 2w
  •   rebeccatillett @stoutsta If you'd have asked me then why I went to school that morning I wouldn't have had a sensical answer. But now, in hindsight it's clear that I was just in a state of shock and hadn't yet truly believed that it had happened. :( 2w
  •   rebeccatillett @stoutsta Thank you for your comment. Sweet words and they mean a lot to me! 2w

rebeccatillett (318//365) "Date a girl who doesn’t read because the girl who reads knows the importance of plot. She can trace out the demarcations of a prologue and the sharp ridges of a climax. She feels them in her skin. The girl who reads will be patient with an intermission and expedite a denouement. But of all things, the girl who reads knows most the ineluctable significance of an end. She is comfortable with them. She has bid farewell to a thousand heroes with only a twinge of sadness." {Charles Warnke} 2w

rebeccatillett (315//365) I think I've been food poisoned and it's the reason I've felt really really terrible and haven't been out of bed for the last twenty-four hours. I wish our internal organs could communicate effectively with our brains and convey what the exact fuck is going on. It'd sure make life easier. Evolution, I'm not impressed with you.

Ps. Sickness saved me from having to venture out into a snowy ten-degree day but I'm still trying to decide on the lesser of two evils. I'll get back to you on that one.

rebeccatillett (313//365) Perks of this evening's commute home: 1. Scraping snow and ice off my front and back windshields for ten minutes (that's the absolute best, isn't it? The way your fingers and hands slowly go numb because you forgot your gloves? So invigorating!) 2. Driving on ice aka hitting your brakes and not stopping (I mean, nothing makes you feel quite as alive as that split second you're sure you're going to die and your heart leaps up your throat!) 3. Almost, and I mean within centimeters, hitting a dude head-on who decided to walk out in the middle of the street in an unlit area and then proceed to stand there because he couldn't get across oncoming traffic therefore leading me to slam on my brakes, slide, lay on my horn, think for sure he's gonna die, watch in the rear view as the guy behind me slams on his brakes and slides, think for sure I'm gonna die, and then coming to an eventual stop thankful I didn't kill him or me but really really wishing he woulda just died at this point (go humanity!) 4. Accidents, accidents everywhere (and dodging them all-it's like a video game! Weee!) 5. Finally getting home and realizing it took me an hour to do so (I love spending ample amounts of time in my car...so much time to ponder the meaning of life and all that jazz!) Ahh winter in a cold climate...gotta love it! 3w
