Food for thought, if you're into that sort of thing...
"If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went."~ Will Rogers
"If you judge people, you have no time to love them." ~Mother Theresa
"Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is."~Albert Camus
"Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk everything, you risk even more."~Erica Jong
Communication involves more than just "saying something". Its real essence lies in "being heard".~Susan J. Kline
"The imaginary friends I had as a kid dropped me because their friends thought I didn't exist."~Aaron Machado
"Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."~T.S. Elliot
"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that don't work."~Thomas Edison
"What a man knows at fifty that he did not know at twenty is, for the most part, incommunicable."~Adlai E. Stevenson
"People take different roads seeking fullfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost."~H. Jackson Browne
"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance... Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek change in a world that yields most painfully to change."~RFK
"Aunt Cindy? When are you and Aunt Berta getting married?"~Rachel, 10yrs. old
"If not now, when?"~The Talmud
In loving memory of my very best friend, Double Dutch. 1988-2007.
The void is deep and wide.
I miss you...

||I'm 46, committed to the love of my life, and happy. I have a great sense of humor-- never take myself too seriously. I'm pretty easy to get along with, unless you're looking for an argument-- in which case-- you will get much more than you've prepared for. I value my time alone as much as time spent with others.

|Wild Fact About Me
||Wild? Wild?! What's wild?!

|What Gives Me Hope
||A glance in almost any direction provides me with a reason to hope.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by

who knew we could all get along,
who knew knowledge is power
