A quote...

"If I had to live my life over I'd dare to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax, I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I wold take more chances. I would climb more mountains and swin more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I am one of those people who live sensibly and sanely, hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I've had my moments, and if I had to do it again, I'd have more of that. In fact I'd try to have nothing else. Just moments, one ofter another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I've been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer and a hot waterbottle, a raincoat and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I'd travel lighter than I have.

If I had to live my life over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies."


-Nadine Stair (at age 85 I believe)

I found this quote a while back. I just re-found it as I was doing some last minute computer stuff before going to bed. Thinking about it, I think I'm doing ok. I've had more than my share of moments. I've chased after the unlikely, improbable, and occasionally spectacularly disasterous dreams. I've got relatively few regrets. Lately though, I've been starting to see myself shy away from the crazy exciting (and yes, occasionally painful) side of living and loving etc... Perhaps it's undersandable but maybe I need to make myself go after the crazy and exciting parts of life a little more.

"Life is what happens while you're making other plans."
- John Lennon

Hmmm.... something to think about...

Maybe later though. Tired. Bed now.

I have been asleep for too long. It is time to live again, even as the world dies around me. . .
