September 19, 2013…today I am 38…

The secret to life can’t be found on an infomercial in the middle of the night

The secret to love won’t be awarded after jumping through every hoop just right.

If life was that simple, would there really be a point?

If life was that easy, we’d all be rolling a joint.

————————————————

You gotta live every day like it could be your last.

You gotta love wholeheartedly regardless of your past.

You gotta laugh with all your might.

You gotta cry, bleed and stand up for what’s right.

(someday soon Stoneface Honey will record the rest of this song)

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;

for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;

we must die to one life before we can enter into another.”

I have learned the novice can often see things that the expert overlooks. All that is
necessary is not to be afraid of making mistakes, or of appearing naive.
