Some things to think about*APROSDOKIANS* are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous. Winston Churchill loved them.Some things to think about6 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you, but it's still on my list.
3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
8. They begin the evening news with 'Good Evening,' then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
9. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

I shall be gone for a month, give or take. May you all be well, have overflowing creativity, joy and peace in your days.
And I hope your nights are as passionate as you wish for them to be.
And if not, well then...if you are so inclined, take steps to remedy that. :iconpassionateplz:
Upon return, fingers crossed, life should go back to regular crazy instead of this past six months of "crazy crazy."
Also...thank you kindly for the kind words in regards to my grandmother's illness. She has finally passed and suffers no more.

APRIL - ARIESAPRIL - ARIES4 months ago in Personal More Like This
April is dominated by the charming Aries Constellation and bring close to us a powerful zodiac sign.
so, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
Aries is willing to change and challenge, is attracted to adventure and risk. He is born to be a natural leader, a man who regards life as a perpetual struggle and everyone around them are competitors. Aries is competitive, courageous, self-confident, proving very bold. Has initiative, likes to take the lead or to start some projects that others do not have the courage to launch. Natives of Aries (March 21-April 19) are very joyful, intemperate, have perseverance in pursuing goals and don't accept compromises. The tendency to defend the point of view can sometimes turn into tyranny. Aries are not influenced by others, they have a will of iron and are extremely passionate in love. People born in Aries, always goes forward to their proposed target, without thinking to the obstacles that may arise i
A New World Has Been Found!Hi dee ho!A New World Has Been Found!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a strange and wonderful week for me! Strange, because of the weird and wild weather we've had here in sunny South Dakota () The week started off fairly nice for February but temperatures soon dropped to the -20F & -30F range and then the snow came. Not a lot of snow, a couple inches, but any amount of snow is a disaster to me! I'm sympathizing with folks back east who REALLY have something to complain about with one storm after another knocking them down and covering them with ice and snow. By comparison, I've had it pretty good here!
The wonderful part...well, many of you already know. 'Drive' got a DD! I actually owe a lot of thanks to Bob :icontthealer56: for poking and prodding me (not gently either! :iconsuperpokeplz into just submitting it to my gallery, so I say here that I thank you for that, Doc. I can be a colossal pain in the ass where my own photography is concerned and I'm just glad you can see

...Are You Real? ...Proove It.The world is not what you think; Did you know?...Are You Real? ...Proove It.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
We are made up of billions of molecules, spinning to their own rhythms...
each spinning around their own nucleus; their own little sun, and the atoms themselves are planets within their own microcosm.
without gravitational pull our bodies would fly apart and turn into mist, floating freely like nebulae.
we constantly regenerate billions of cells, everyday, to account for the ones we lose just through existing.
we are born shedding these cells, in effect we are physically rotting away from the moment we are born;
and all the while we try to attain states of consciousness within ourselves that we can find agreeable.
Does it not seem a little unorthodox that these billions of cells should profess to be a single entity? does it not tickle your mind to know that without human "intuition" we may well all just be wild animals, or even better yet, a fluid mass like the ocean, living interdependently while being literally within each other, sharing

It seems that every time that I go back home, I always end up in bad shape. I am not talking about sickness but just plain nostalgia.
I made a smash book about my travels and I am almost finish. There's one page that caught my attention and I left it untouched.
It goes like this:
The truth is that it is not really about this stuff at all.
It is about the evidence of living
the proof that I was here:
Thought some thoughts,
lived some life.
This bits are simply meant to jog the memory
into remembering- and remembering is perhaps
the best way to recycle.
