Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

I wonder how different my life would have been/felt if I had been born not double-jointed. Piano, mudras.

I was just reminded of a week, many years ago now, when the North/East was covered in snowstorms.. And what was just a few days turned into a few days more.. And I can remember and reason a lot of things about that that week, but mostly I just remember how wonderful it was.

P.S. I can’t remember the name of the darling fellow who broke the news over the phone that the flight was canceled.. but I think in that moment I loved him.

me: I had to learn to keep from being trampled in middle school.
J: Hahaha
me: … It wasn’t funny at the time…

Somewhere in Between

slated in memories, mused at 5:12 pm

About half a decade ago, I went to a Matchbox Twenty/Lifehouse/Everclear concert. Seems like another lifetime; a different stage, different actors.

When I was a kid (~elementary school..), I collected stickers, pens/pencils, notebooks, marbles, books, music (cassettes, then CDs).
I collect journals(calendar and simple ruled), domain names, post-it note tabs, books, downloadable software, AVIs of TV eps, music, mp3s.

Awesome night. really.
maybe in some ways good that I didn’t have my ID so couldn’t really enter the club to stay out much longer… also rather regretful…
but…. an awesome night really, still, really.

Song tangents

slated in stuff, memories at 6:13 am

I asked my dad if he could name any of the songs I listen to, since it occurred to me that I could certainly name some of his artists and songs but I wasn’t so sure what he would come up with for me…

He answered, “well, you like the Kookaburra song.”

Hm. That is true. I do like the Kookaburra song.
