silly boy

July 27th, 2005

I have achieved new heights. Or depths, depending on if you are looking up or looking down.

You’re flying along pretty high until you realize that you, foolish boy, don’t actually have wings. Truly a Buzz Lightyear moment.

Then again, thinking about that analogy, thats not completely correct. You do have wings. Just not air. You find that you’re really flying in a vacuum. And anyone who knows anything about aerodynamics knows how much lift that will produce…

Everything comes down to expectations. When you think something will (or should) be a certain way and it isn’t, there is disappointment. Another problem is that it might well be the way you think it should be, but you’re just looking at different external indicators.

This is something that could be gone into at length, but I won’t at the moment.

And that concludes my thought for the day.


yeah, yeah, I know

Okay, so its sappy. What do you want me to do about it?

Quote for today:

“What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?”
-George Eliot


a post, as it were

I found this (well, heard it…but we don’t talk about that) and thought, you know, this is pretty good. So here it is.

Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1904)

Somewhere there waiteth in this world of ours
For one lone soul another lonely soul,
Each choosing each through all the weary hours
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal.
Then blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole;
And life’s long night is ended, and the way
Lies open onward to eternal day.
