Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.

Playlist pieces

Hoy es un día normal pero yo voy a hacerlo intenso
Hoy puede apagarse el sol pero no la luz de mi alma


It’s not as easy as willing it all to be right.
You gotta be more than hoping it’s right.

Common Sense

I received this in my email today

London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense – Thursday, 15 Feb. 2007

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.

No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn’t always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

When I first saw the preview for it in a movie theater, without having ever heard anything of it, the simple portrayal of the movie made me think “Tower of Babel”, and the end of the preview revealed that the movie was in fact called Babel. Have not heard/read reviews of it, beyond a general impression that it is a good movie.

Finally saw it this week.

This pig year

All things that occur this year can be looked on as closing or final conclusions in some way. An auspicious year to complete projects, bring projects to fruition or arrive safely after completing a long life journey.

Harry Potter movie

slated in mainstream at 9:19 pm

Saw Order of the Phoenix last night..
Watching something like that is actually quite a trip… I’d forgotten that there might be anything more to it than really long lines.
There’s really really long lines really early before the movie, and there’s the extra-dorkiness status you garner by association with others in the line dressed as a Firebolt (yes, the broom), as Death Eaters, as Harry Potter, tons of random t-shirts saying things like “Severus is my slave/Severus is my master”, and countless girls with lightning bolts drawn on their foreheads with eye-liner. I may never be cool again. ;)

meanwhile, how cool is this:

Last weekend, Kent Couch settled down in his lawn chair with some snacks — and a parachute. Attached to his lawn chair were 105 large helium balloons.
