five

I love you


Seasons of Love

Five hundred tweny-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure - measure a year?

In daylights? - in sunsets?
In midnights? - in cups of coffee?
In inches? - in miles?
In laughter? - in strife?

In - five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
how do you measure
a year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love?
Measure in love

Seasons of Love
Seasons of Love

Five hundred tweny-five thousand six hundred minutes
Five hundred tweny-five thousand journeys to plan
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?


In truths that she learned, or in times that she cried?
In bridges she burned, or the way that she died?

It´s time now - to sing out
tho´ the story never ends...
Let´s celebrate...
Remember a year in the life of friends...

Remember the love
Remember the love
Remember the love
Measure in love

Measure - measure your life in love


Seasons of love....
Seasons of love


--Jonathan Larson, from Rent


I don't know how to tell you all how much my life has changed just by virtue of knowing you.

Thank you so much :)

Yesterday's blizzard


What a year it's been. My mom passed on... my dad built a new house far away... I'm finally out of that long term(inal) relationship... I spent a good many months thinking I had leukemia... I quit smoking... so much happened, too much to list...

But I'm still here, and thriving like a little weed :)

I resolve to:
  • Treat myself like my best friend and be truly kind to myself

  • Never wait to tell someone how much I love him or her

  • Hug people with reckless abandon

  • Realize my own power and use it to better my world, and the worlds of others

  • Bid a not-so-fond farewell to depression and self-pity

  • Ask for help when I need it

  • Abolish fear in my life

  • Not sweat the small stuff

  • Not lie-- not to anyone, including myself

  • Embrace honesty, even when it hurts

  • Think thrice before making any excuse for my behaviour

  • Not let a precious moment pass in apathy

  • Eat three squares, (and maybe a couple triangles and circles) each and every day

  • Take whatever measures are necessary to keep myself healthy

  • Grant myself at least seven hours sleep each night

  • Use books and the internet to enhance my reality; not escape it

  • Feed my head nourishing stuff

  • Sing every day

  • Dance in my kitchen at least weekly

  • Invest my money

  • Invest myself

  • Travel more often

  • Learn Linux, with or without X

  • Find adventures, even in the simplest of outings

  • Act, draw and write

  • Exercise or at least stretch every day

  • Welcome love and even romance in its many incarnations

  • Declutter my world

  • Create good habits from bad

  • Run over can't, won't and shouldn't, or find alternate routes around them

  • Laugh at myself more often

  • ...Not smoke

(Oh, there's more, I'm sure.... but so far so good...)

And here I was thinking not smoking would be the toughest thing I'd do... << laughs >>

I sincerely hope that some of your dreams are realized in their full glory this year.

And please, Dream Big :)

I love you.

Happy New Years
