Someone found this blog yesterday by searching "self-indulgent sadness!" That has me laughing, but I'm not quite done yet.

In Brief

The wind blows a leaf into my hand
A curled and dry speck in my palm
Skeleton veins fanned in rays
Too fragile to grasp, too light to tip the balance
One of unseen, unnoticed billions
Known only because it happened in my hand to rest
Another gust and it is gone
And I will not hold Angie's hand again.

holy crap. if you google self indulgent sadness your blog is the very first hit! is that just bc i go to your blog so often and google recognizes that or would that be true for everyone?
