What notions have you got? Daily story · 14 April, 2013
  • i've got notions that i will fill pages and pages and pages of white space with words.
    i've got notions that i will rent a RV and drive south, filling my eyes and ears and lungs with the warmth of whatever comes my way.
    i've got notions that i will open a popsicle truck, and fill mouths with fantastic flavors.
    i've got notions that i will go get the prerequisites for nursing school, then go to nursing school, then go to midwifery school, then birth babies, filling the world with cries of life and love.
    i've got notions that i'll decorate homes, filling them with the personality of the people who live there.
    i've got notions that i'll join the circus,
    and join the peace corps,
    and join the 9-5 working world again.
    i've got notions that i'll learn how to skateboard as a 37-year old woman,
    and learn how to be a butcher,
    and learn how to develop film.
    i've got so many notions.
    and so little time.
