No Rest For The Wicked

On nights when I just can't sleep, I tend to think.

And reflect.

And drive myself further insane as the night drags on.

Can't escape it. Last night was no exception, unfortunately.

I'll be honest - it isn't always a bad thing (other than the lack of rest, of course). There are the rare instances when I find solutions to problems that plague me, or figure out why things happened when they did, and how I could've prevented them.

This time, Kris had herself a few epiphanies.

Hmm... maybe realizations is the better term.

Either way. I figured out why I kept myself in less-than-ideal situations in the past, when I was probably better off ridding myself of them.

And I learned why (aside from the obvious concerns) I always feel like something is missing for me now, like I'm continually searching and coming up short.

These are baby steps, people.

Over the past year or two I've kinda lost myself. I've been bleached and subdued. Real life has taken the colours out of my personality, and I'm on the hunt to get em back.

The more I learn what I've done wrong before, and what I now want, the closer I am to those colours.

And I promise to never


draw within the lines.

Nice post, I like it. What colours with you be?

Kris said...





Maybe a yellow to offset my taste in dark friggin' colour. I need to re-think this.

ghost said...

i dont care where you draw as long as you dont eat the crayons.

Anonymous said...

I've only met you in the past year or two years and you are definately still full of color. :)

Kris said...

ghost - I can't promise that. Sometimes crayons are more delicious than the food I cook.

Anon - If you are anonymous, I do not know you. Reveal yourself!

Liam said...

Oh yes, good colour picks. I like black too. If you want to draw a picture of me in Crayolas I'd recommend Chop-Black, specifically. And then Chop-Yellow for the eyes. :o-)

Kris said...

Anything for you, Liam. Anything.

tony said...

Kris said...


That's cuz yer SMART, Tony!

Keir said...

I bleached my hair once. It started falling out not long after. Be VERY careful. :)

Kris said...

I've never fully bleached my hair, and I never will. Just highlights. A hundred billion years of highlights.

(Are you tryin' to tell me to go dark, Keir? ) ;)

Keir said...

Well I have to live vicariously these days. All you hairy people are just clay to mold.
