... to write again with the same passion, piss, & vinegar that I once did (or at least thought I did).
... to find a bit of peace and maintain it.
... to leave this world a better place than when I entered it.
... to be more patient with that I find a waste of time.
... to leave them smiling more than crying.
... to quit smoking for me and nobody else. Then, not to gain the inevitable weight in fat pounds but to find another vice ... like reading while doing push-ups.
... to become famous in death without having to jump off a tall building and wave my middle finger at the latest Reality Show Sensation.
... to make my folks proud.
... to warm Jennifer's heart so much that she actually starts to love the state of Pennsylvania. Then, maybe we'll move to North Carolina, Oregon, or even Italy if Palin runs for President in 2012. Actually, I'd like to move to Italy even if a Democrat runs again. Maybe especially if a Democrat runs again ;)
... to try and take the polarizing stuff that seems to separate us with a grain of salt, knowing that wisdom isn't in the pages or words of those whose paychecks depend on it.
... to turn off FOX & MSNBC while I'm on the subject.
... to pay off some old debts.
... to give more than I receive. Life is like physical combat in that way. Kind of ironic ...
... is to thank Active Rain (yes, it's a bit mushy now) for introducing me to the love of my life and so many damn good people along the way, some of whom I've never actually met. That's what makes them damn good;) So pour yourself a Chocolate Martini & inherently know that whether I show it or not ... I actually do care about folks ... the whole lot of ya ... whether it matters or not. And I'll always come here first for Real Estate ... and the Otherwise. Especially, the Otherwise.
