Have you ever heard this story? (Or, am I looking into a mirror?)

"There once was a tiger-striped cat.
This cat died a million deaths and
was reborn a million times
...and was owned by various people
who he didn't care for.
The cat wasn't afraid to die...
One day,
The cat was a free cat,
A stray cat.
He met a white female cat,
And the two cats spent their days happily together,
Well, years passed by,
and the white cat died of old age.
The tiger-striped cat
cried a million times,
and then died
It never came back to life..."

I look at this and wonder.

When will it be time for me to finally let go and not be owned by anyone?

And the moment that I do, have I resigned myself to the same fate?

Am I just a being that lives a life filled with unemotional pleasures who never really lives until it finds some sort of personalized truth to hold on to?

New Year, New Things (Or, I'm doing things I NEVER thought I would do...)

So, 2 weeks into the new year and already, it's shaping up to be something fantastic.

I went rollerskating on Sunday.

I'm gonna let you breathe that in.


I don't have any sense of balance. None, whatsoever.

But, I did the impossible, and I got out there, and it felt good. Sure, I almost fell (twice), and I only went around the rink once.... but I did it.

And I'm contemplating doing it again.

Anyway, just a quick update. I have some high hopes for this year, and if things work the way I want them to, then I'll be one happy camper come 2009.

Stay up, and remember, be GREAT in '08.
