I love reading.

I love budgies and looking at scenery and sketching and dreaming and laughing

and music and sleeping in and chocolate and hugs and proper grammar and clothes and

people and kindness and being random and a lot of other things.

I love to write, though I'm still learning how.

thanks for dropping in...

everyone loves quotes, right?

- "Procrastinate now. Don't put it off." - someone who knew people like me

- "Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

- "Women are meant to be loved, not understood. - Oscar Wilde

- "Be who you are and say what you mean, because those who

mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. - Dr. Seuss

- "Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage

to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

- "Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life:

the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind." - Bertrand Russell

-"Credulous hope supports our life, and always says that tomorrow will be better." - Tibullus

-"Life is for those who love to live it, and love is for those who ask. Don't plan your future by what you covet,

don't worry about the past." --Signature quote from: free-hug-king

-"Things happen, and sometimes you can't control them. Whether or not they're a mistake is up to you.

They're what make us human, but what we decide is a mistake or not defines who we are." --The Camera Guy

-"Perfect humility dispenses with modesty." --C.S. Lewis

-"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." --Jimi Hendrix

-"Life is Pleasant, Death is Peaceful, It's the Transition that's Troublesome." --Signature quote from: Lord-Aradon

-'People who pray for miracles usually don't get miracles...But people who pray for courage, for strength to bear the unbearable,

for the grace to remember what they have left instead of what they have lost, very often find their prayers answered.

Their prayers helped them tap hidden reserves of faith and courage that were not available to them before.' -- Harold S. Kushner

-"Happiness can exist only in acceptance." - Denis DeRougamont

-"Peace, in the sense of absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold.

Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where people are fed, and where individuals

and nations are free." - The 14th Dalai Lama (how come everyone knows the pope's name, but noone the dalai lama's?)

-'An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.' - K. Gibran

-'Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes and impact are truly endless.' -- Mother Theresa

and I wanted to share this poem I found with you-

Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am in a thousand winds that blow,

I am the softly falling snow.

I am the gentle showers of rain,

I am the fields of ripening grain.

I am in the morning hush,

I am in the graceful rush

Of beautiful birds in circling flight,

I am the starshine of the night.

I am in the flowers that bloom,

I am in a quiet room.

I am in the birds that sing,

I am in each lovely thing.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there. I do not die.
