2.25.2007 Life

Life changes every day. We just don't always notice.

- you leave the house a few minutes late and pass an accident on the way to work - you decide to give up carbs or start an exercise program or take up yoga - you meet a friend for lunch and share confidences that bring you even closer - you recieve an email or card or letter from someone you thought you had lost contact with - you say words to someone that you wish you could take back - you apologize - you see something beautiful - you create a memory or remember one - you read a book - you learn something new

It's all life changing.

And just because it doesn't always feel big or special doesn't make it any less important.

Because life is like that - serendipitous - arbitrary - surprising - amazing - a decision to turn right instead of left - a missed appointment - a choice selected or refused - it all matters - it all affects us.

Each event, no matter it's size or weight or magnitude, changes us.

You can't be suspicious of a tree or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet. - H. Borland

2.14.2007 LoVe

Love is not an emotion that should be hidden. If you feel it in your heart, express it. Do not expect others to love you in return. Simply hope to live outwardly the best of what you feel inwardly. The worst that can happen is not rejection by another person, but failure to act on the love in your heart.
