just so you know

Just so you know I probably like you, even though my face is serious most of the time. It's just my face. It's not my heart.

Just so you know, I'd also probably like to hang out with you, especially if we don't know each other very well, but I've gotten into this habit of letting (making?) people come to me, seek me out, so I know they really want to spend time with me. Not sure where that one came from. Will have to ponder.

Oh and I'm also a mom of a baby I only get to see for a precious few hours per day, so that kind of dictates my social calendar. But that doesn't mean she can't come with us somewhere, she's very sociable.

And just so you know, I'm not easily offended nor am I easily riled but I find that I am quite introspective and observant and so people have told me that my relative quietness coupled with my prevailing stone face has intimidated them. That's too bad! Perhaps it's natural selection like an angler fish or one of those butterflies with the big eye patterns on their wings.

My friend Mikha is a wonderful example of someone who openly set out to persevere and be my friend and I adore her for that. She's also a blogger and a really smart gal.

So that's just so you know. I probably like you more than you think. Unless I don't, in which case you'll know it.


  1. Sometimes I have found you intimidating. But I don't think it's entirely because of your face, it's also because of the things I admire about you-- your drive, your fearlessness, your passion.

    I like reading your blog.

  2. thank you, g.

    i can't tell you how much i appreciate it.
