Freedom Lives

October 30, 2006


I am really considering a new category for my various damage incurred in 2006. Being an optomist hoping this will end.

My latest injury was getting stung by a bee while visiting our favorite nursery the Arbor Gate yesterday,
I took two benadryl after we left by buying a pack at the grocery store where we went to shop. Usually taking two will knock me out and indeed I went to bed soon after we got home only waking several hours later to take another two..
I just took another one.

Update Monday:
I went to my doctor and he gave me a shot and as I related in this post it has affected me the same way as it is now 2:15am, I have to get up at 5am and I am not at all sleepy.
On top of that fun I had to remove my contacts Saturday because something got in them and scratched my cornea or lens , joy.

Carpe Diem

Quote of the Day

John Keating: They're not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they're destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - - Carpe - - hear it? - - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary..

Life is too short and fragile

One of my favorite bloggers for the past few years has been Rob Smith, who passed away recently and suddenly..
His daughter has reposted some of his old posts on the site and I go over every now and then to read a few.
There was this one about his new years resolutions that hit me hard. Rob had plans, had things he wanted to do and all of a sudden he is gone. He was my age.

We found out today that a close friend of my wife has recently died of cancer.

Love your loved ones and keep them close because we never know what the next day or moment will bring. You might be sitting at work drinking coffee and chatting with a co-worker when a plane comes flying through your window. You just never know.

Don't ever not tell those you love that you love them because it might be the last chance you get.

I hope to survive this year.
I was kind of hoping that this cycle of hurt would end during the Jewish year having just past but now I am holding out hope to make it to January.

A few days ago I raised a nice knot on my leg, the one that was broken in Jan. this year and I don't even remember what I ran into to cause it.

Just now I was running a little late and hurried out of my room to promptly stub my toe,

I was thinking about taking some self defense training but I am going to wait until 2007 in hopes I won't kill myself in the process.
