Oh, The Joy!

Exercise, good company, a challenge, and a summit to reach.

Oh how I love rock climbing! ^.^

It reminds me of the delight in setting your eyes on a prize, and then grabbing it in your sweaty, exhausted hands. Oh, the joy!

I just found these online and I simply had to share my complete and utter joy. I'm blown away. I'm excited. In fact I can't remember having been this excited in a long, long time.

I think I'm in LOVE! ^^

Really Nice.

I've often commented that modern day, high quality photographs don't really sit well with me. They make me a little... uncomfortable.

How can a photograph look richer, more vivid, and more detailed than reality itself? It feels a little...'sacrilegious'.

But what is, is - i guess.

The point is, I've mentioned this to many people, and I've drawn many blank faces. Last night however, for the first time, someone understood and felt the same way.

It's really nice, to share familiar feelings :)

They recommended me "Simulacra and Simulation" by Jean Baudrillard.

Time and Space

Jessie's away on a girl's summer getaway,
and I'm here at home- musing and pondering.
To be honest it's nice to have some time apart.

Don't get me wrong, I love the girl dearly.

But this week without her is great chance to remember to love myself as well -
to be my own person, to live my own adventures,
and to follow my own dreams.

Living with someone can get very.. comfortable.
And its a danger to lose ones self in that softness and sameness.

I definately think we'll have separate wings of the house one day,
with communal spaces in between, where we can meet for dates and what not.

I'm enjoying having time, and space.
I'm enjoying it very much :)

Makes me smile

Keeping busy certainly has many merits.

A visit to the parents.
A visit to the gym.
And some good old 'costume building & painting' -

Makes me smile ;)

Through these beautiful eyes,
I see this beautiful day,
which is dancing through this beautiful world.

The countryside certainly has its appeals.


He walked into the room and like a curtain of mist, the icy melancholy fell once more.
This place was no place for a prince.

The boy who had everything

Things have always gone my way.
Abd they always will.

Because I decided that whatever way things go, is the way things were meant to go for me. And that whatever it is I want in the world, is there for me if I want it.

And I know that the world is absolutely perfect. And that everything around me is absolutely wonderful and there for me to feel, taste and see.

The desert priest said - "If a man loses everything he owns does he truly lose his worth, or is it the beginning of a new and brighter birth!?".

And to be fair, I'd say it's the latter.

Goodbye forced investment and a job I don't like. Hello time for me, time for life, and time to grow. *smile*

But while that works itself out - hello happy world ;)

A Guide To Life

And if we are but threads in this great tapestry then what are we to do?

Be as colourful and magnificent sir, as you can or ever could - possibly be.

But what is it to be magnificent? By what measure would you judge magnificence?

Well by the capacity of the magnificent or the not-so-magnificent to drop the jaws of those who behold it my dear.

Wouldn't that depend entirely on the beholder?

Yes but are we not all of the same 'stuff'? Shouldn't we all react and act in the world just like any other person? Are we not all human?

We are all human but we are all conditioned by the environment in which we have grown. One who loves bicycles now may have hated them if she was born in some distant land, where only murderers and thieves rode bicycles. Where one person may look upon their local pizza boy as the image of all magnificence, for another those feelings may only rise for the lonely cod who swims off the shore.

So are we to be the cod or the pizza boy? To what end shall we aspire?

Aspire to nothing. You are already magnificent.

But what if I already aspire? Am I still magnificent then?

Yes darling.


The world is your pallette, your dressing room, your library and your stage. Paint your set and costumes with the whims which guide you, choose the story which chooses you, and act my dear, just act.
