Arbirtrary Mind Picks #81

1. I know i haven't written in a very long time. My mind is all over the place, to be honest with you.

2. Random Factoid of the day:
My service driver (taxi driver) is also a Barangay Official. I congratulated him on winning a place at the recent elections. Who woulda thunk?

3. Heading down to the shitty city this weekend for Halloween. Looking forward to the company, the food, and of course... all the booze excitement!

4. Dylan is... just too much to explain in a sentence right now. I love that kid like i never even thought possible. I am so grateful for the relationship i have with my son. Even though i wanna tie him up sometimes, that kid is just amazing.

5. I still have a few lessons to learn about friendship. Observing people you think you know is a great pastime. Try it.

I leave you now with a photo of Session Road. Taken at the break of dawn under the influence of some serious alcohol. My city, in a familiar light, if you will.

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
— Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

[because someone criticized my "type of music" without thinking about what they were saying...Ignorance is bliss... but it's also a damn shame.]

"Love doesn't die... it deserts you. "


I have 3 months to get in shape for a wedding.
No, not mine.
I'm the "always a bridesmaid, never the bride" kinda girl.

Here we go.

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
— John Lennon

Today is your big moment. Moments, really. The life you’ve been waiting for is happening all around you. The scene unfolding right outside your window is worth more than the most beautiful painting, and the crackers and peanut butter that you’re having for lunch on the coffee table are as profound, in their own way, as the Last Supper. This is it. This is life in all its glory, swirling and unfolding around us, disguised as pedantic, pedestrian non-events. But pull off the mask and you will find your life, waiting to be made, chosen, woven, crafted
