to enjoy life . . .

All I ever wanted,
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms.

Words are very
They can only do harm.

quiet home; quiet life

mmm, feels like i'm getting old. gettin' on toward bedtime, and the house is quiet. the birds are calmly munching seed in a clean cage; everyone is satisfied.

another good day.

g'nite all.

lure and allure

guess i don't need a Master's Degree in Computational Linguistics after all. the lure and allure of Brandeis University won me (briefly) over; but what turned out in the end to be the wisdom of my wife (and life) helped me see what i really needed and wanted to do.

so i guess it's back to writing games in Java and not so much Cognitive Linguistics (though still probably a little).

now there's time for a little more reading -- yay!

time - life

time to watch 'When Harry Met Sally' again.

when life is particularly difficult, return to what makes you feel most alive; return to love.

yay, life!

Smaug lands

human suffering -- we sure all know a lot about that now, don't we.

what's more terrible than a fire-breathing dragon? a miserable person who spreads misery to everyone around them; at least with the dragon, it's usually over quickly.

what's more challenging than finding one's path in life? sticking to that path once its found.

anybody out there know of any good suspended-animation facilities?
