Did that blow your mind, because that just happened.


What we anticipate seldom occurs; what we least expected generally happens.
~Benjamin Disraeli

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
~Nelson Mandela

Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch is, and it darts away.

I cannot recount all the things I've done in the name/for the sake of love. Many stupid, and foolish in retrospect, but all well intentioned and sweet. I can remember writing my first love note in 1st grade. I also remember the response, which although completely illegible and filled with words that were some sort of combination of letters, but formed no real words. Nevertheless I hung on to that scrap of paper until it became so worn it was as soft as satin. I've sent Gerber Daisies to a work place, put flowers under a windshield for someone to find in the morning, and even slipped them through a cracked car window in 100 degree summer sun, only for the recipient to find them wilted on their front seat. Why? Probably because I've held the concept and possibility of finding true love above anything else in my life. It is what it is I guess, no shame, no regrets. Optimistic with possibility, but cursed by longing.

In lighter news, another NASCAR road trip extravaganza is in the works! Daytona here we come? More news as it develops.
