Working on my project through a rough touch of cold. Hard to direct the team when I can barely speak. Email it is. I'd like if there were someone to make me tea, but my loved ones are all afoot on adventures, aka work of their own... It's strange to be so distant from most of my friends. Facebook keeps it from being noticeable with the notable exception of when I feel ill.

Every flea treatment leaves Claire pissed at me for weeks. So, at best, when she's in a great mood otherwise, I can expect her to hate me about half the time.

I must say I don't quite get why so many people get down in the dumps about Mondays, or get excited about Fridays. But perhaps that's because when you're self-employed every day is Wednesday, mid-week with lots left to do.

My life is a very busy place. I like busy. Busy getting things done is good.

If I recall my childhood education correctly, the original Valentine married people in secret who weren't legally allowed to, especially those in jail. So, you're celebrating a rogue priest willing to overlook a few laws... but you're mostly celebrating love, and the hope and love of it. So, yeah. Don't marry any cons, tho. Unless you know what you're getting into...

I've been alive for forty years. It's not freaking me out. It's motivating me, giving me perspective on how much time I have left and how much more I need to get done. It's stimulating. I think most crises of age result from the concept of eighty years, a life span, becoming utterly comprehensible. At forty, you've experienced as much time as you have ahead, in all likelihood. They call it over the hill. I would like to think it's over the foothills and finally climbing the mountain.

It is impossibly for anyone to see your point when you're angry, yelling, spitting fire. If you want to be effective, simmer down, form a good debate in your head, and tackle changing minds one at a time. While it feels great to rage against the opposition, no minds will be changed until you do what it takes to effectively communicate your truth.

Every day that we each stop ourselves from posting about the populus' political frenzy is a minor miracle. Well done, those of you who make it through Facebook today without engaging in melodrama. Well done.

I remember a time I felt completely alone in life, I thought I had no friends in this world. It's been many years in the making, but I have a pretty lovely, full life now. If you feel empty-handed or lonely, persevere. You will some day reach the other side.

So far my experience on letting people who aren't family stay at my house for free is 95% negative. (If you think, hey, not me! then you're the other 5%...) So, from now on, if you crash here, I'm charging you lots of money. Probably more than the AirBnB down on the beach would. Statistically, though, it increases the likelihood that we're going to LOVE having you around.

For every unkind person there are dozens of good people. Scores. Lots and lots. Don't let your view of the world be filtered through negativity because the truth is, you're pretty amazing. And so are you. And you. And you. And you (etc ad nauseum)...
