back to the beginning

Could this be the end or a beginning?  Why has this distraction taken me?  Hmmm….answers will come in time.
So here I stand, exhale, sheepishly handing the cashier the first Twilight Book.  Looking up and catching her stare – she excitedly said – “Oh, have you read these before..you will love this series, have you seen the movie?”  “Um – inhale– yeah, actually….I’ve read everything (feeling a flush of red) but the first one….(caught off guard by her interest and then couldn’t believe myself spilling my story to this stranger).  Quickly summing up…”A friend tempted me to read New Moon, then we saw the movie, leading me into Eclipse and then I had to read Breaking Dawn… Cashier – “Didn’t you love Breaking Dawn!”
“I did! It really was great, have you read Midnight Sun on-line? Well you should (why couldn’t I stop myself, how ridiculous, but I went on) it’s about Edwards perspective and blah blah blah…”  Cutting the conversation off quickly…book in hand…now running out of the store.

Finally, back to the beginninghome…opening Twilight

no where near done…

I really liked Breaking Dawn…perhaps it was the “Happy Ending” or just completing something….was I really done? 

No where near being done…it’s kind of like that favorite song you want to hear over and over again until you are sick of it or have moved on some how.   So remembering a song I really liked from the Twilight movie, Flightless bird- by Iron&Wine, I began searching to find it…which then lead me to digging around on Stephanie Meyer’s website…and stumbled upon Midnight Sun.  An incomplete draft from Edwards perspective in the beginning…(now mind you at this point I have not read the first book, only watched the movie, I know…sigh… I am all backwards what do you do).  

Very intrigued with this discovery, overwhelmed with a need to feed my obsession and oddly relieved that there is more…



ok now the good part…

Breaking Dawn, Breaking Me….

Please read the following with an over the top dramatic passionate tone…makes me think of Jon Lovits on SNL bellowing out – ACTING!
Alright, (long pause, sigh, eyes closed, face tilted slightly to the left, suddenly look up) finally here… little miss Bella has accepted she is engaged…the compromise…the innocence…clings to the edge of a looming wedding…all too perfect for this disaster prone Bella and Edward….Oh Edward where art thou Edward!!!!!  

Okay, right, that’s um out of my system now… 
At this point, Breaking Dawn has become my favorite so far…maybe it’s knowing there could be a happy ending…everyone getting what they want, although not without struggle…taken some-what by surprise at the direction…however looking back clues were there spelling it out.  Then, the mushy romantic, tender love held between Bella and Edward – most girls fantasy – to be wanted and desired by the one they love, always- (maybe not by a vampire) you get the picture.   🙂  

I flew through this book and enjoyed every bit of my stolen moments….



why stop now…

Closing Eclipse…smoothing out the last dog-eared page…thinking about the compromise…biting my lip…hmm…why stop now…Breaking Dawn is calling my name.  Snapping out of my romantic daze…my selfishness now front and center… announcing, Everyone get dressed (it was a Saturday morning) we need to run a few errands – meaning I just want to get my book– expected moans and groans of AWE! really, do we have to…opportunistisc children…can we get something?   Left eyebrow lifted,  maybe…depends on how fast you get moving and how you behave in the store.  

Combing the shelves for Breaking Dawn…looking for paper back…only hard cover exsisted…snatched my prise.  Yeah…I am a sucker….sigh…of course I got the kids something!   I started reading in the car as the kids buckled up…put it down… knowing I needed to have full concentration…with the book.  🙂  Traffic could not move fast enough…reaching home, making sure everyone was settled and happy…Coby and Oso following me back to my room…they seemed eager to snuggle up with me while I continued my new obsession, Breaking Dawn.
