My Bio
"I'd prefer to remain a mystery. I never like to give my background and, anyway, I make it all up different every time I'm asked. It's not just that it's part of my image not to tell everything, it's just that I forget what I said the day before, and I have to make it all up over again." - Andy Warhol

...Fate

...Fate

Predetermined fate is a shallow falsehood. It's a good idea to analyze the past to make better decisions in the future. It's a good idea to figure out exactly how you feel about, anything, & everything, at all times. Decide, without a doubt, using your head, how your heart truly feels. Never, ever, just 'go with it.' Reject the notion 'whetever happens, happens". Rule your destiny.

The Sage & I finally finished packing by 11.30 & rang in the New Year With the Doctor & 'the End of Time". Sage flys back to DC this morning. We had a memorable week; rounding it off with our annual visit to the Art Institute, Thai in the Loop with Jules, and visit to American Girl Place at Water Tower. Happy New Year everybody & have a wonderful year! -------------------------------------------------------------- Wake early if you want another man's life or land. No lamb for the lazy wolf. No battle's won in bed. - The Havamal
