Teetering on the cusp

June 26, 2002

i have been reading my horoscope religiously and looking for answers in road signs. but tonight, while listening to a sad and beautiful song, i realized that maybe i’m looking for something that doesn’t exist. an arrow pointing somewhere, to some thing. something.

maybe there are no signs and all the little coincidences that pop up are just that: coincidences.

you have to understand that this is a foreign way of thinking for me, a girl who saw the future when she looked in the mirror and wished on stars just in case she was wrong.

now, i’m not predicting the future at all. i’m just hoping to God that i don’t trip and fall from now to then.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
