I heart tissues at this very moment
I am officially out of tissues to blow my red, dried, puffed-up, stuffed-up nose. That is tissue box in my room, my bathroom, and on my desk. Count them, three, all in one weekend. Oooohh, misery!

Words to live by
Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone, though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

Stand together and yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple, in order to hold up the temple, stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress do not grow in each other's shadow

Excerpts from The Prophet-Marriage
Don't ever grow in anybody's shadow, you cannot grow in someone else's shadow. You find your own sunlight and you get as big and wonderful and as glorious as possible. And you share, telling them, "Let's communicate, let's talk, let's let it happen." But it doesn't happen in someone else's shadow. There you wilt, you forget who you are, you lose you and if you've lost you, you've lost the most essential thing you have. So I am one and one but we're two and we're together. You're an "I". I am an "I" and we are together an "us".
Words to practice and live by from Leo Buscaglia. So true...

My tribute to Armstrong


No, I didn't deliberately fall, but these made a nice tribute to all those franatics who rode the Tour.

The way this happened was pure stupidity and I was only one short block away biking home from work which is only 1.5 miles through downtown. PURE. STUPIDITY. And you know something, if you've witnessed some of my scars and road rashes, you know this won't be my last one. Although now my front wheel is bent and so is the handle bar. Quite amazing is that I didn't fall that hard. I have gone through worse spills than this without damaging the bike, scratched up but not damaged. Coincidentally, I stopped by the bike shop in town that is closing its door after this month on my way home before I took the spill. Maybe this is telling me something. Maybe there is a new bike in the near future.

Thoughts #3
Things over heard today:

As I was coming around a bend on the hiking trial, I can hear rambunctious kids ahead of me. The dismay father tried to contain them. Finally he offered "If you calm down now, I have cookies for you guys." Seems counter-intuitive to offer sugar so they can CALM down, but we've all done it before.

The same kids after getting the cookies now runs ahead of the father. An eight year old, glee with the treat urges the other girls "Hurry up, maybe we can catch up to the boys so we can TEASE them with these cookies." Hmmm... Apparently we start at a young age.
