    • Just for one day
      • if i could be someone else for a day i would be a poor child because i want to know what they feel and understand maybe their life. this will help me too value more my own life and comprehend why they choose the bad way.

    • Unaccustomed, as I am....
      • Unaccustomed, as I am, to the blatant use and flagrant abuse, of well-worn phrases and cliches, allow me to try, OK here goes...
        Not wanting to put the cart before the horse, and bearing in mind, one should look before one leaps, I will grant myself the artistic license to procede, willy-nilly, with scant regard for accepted norms, and ride rough-shod over familar ground, with one eye on the prize and the other on the competition.
        It's no small coincidence that every dog has it's day, notwithstanding, that you reap what you sow, or that you can, and often are, the victim of circumstance. Furthermore, it should be noted, without further ado, and in complete confidence, that beggars can't be choosers, round pegs can't fit in square holes, and sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees..
        I could go on, but due to the fact that time (and tide) stops for no man (nor moman i would imagine) I must bid adieu, a fond farewell, and take my leave, shoot the gap, hit the road, cut a track, act like a tree, take off, shoot through, to cut a long story short, I'm outta here!

    • Very superstitious
      • I don't have superstitions as such, BUT I do take pleasure in acting against superstitions. For example;

        My favourite number/date is 13 - Friday the 13th, most of all.
        I like to walk under ladders.
        I love blacks cats (well, all cats really).

        Actually, I think superstitions are silly, though I realise they probably have their foundations in some ancient human needs/ fear of the unknown, and need to explain the unexplainable.

    • As you set out for Ithaka, hope the voyage is a long one...
      • Ithaka by Constantine Cavafy...

        As you set out for Ithaka
        hope the voyage is a long one,
        full of adventure, full of discovery.
        Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
        angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them:
        you’ll never find things like that on your way
        as long as you keep your thoughts raised high,
        as long as a rare excitement
        stirs your spirit and your body.
        Laistrygonians and Cyclops,
        wild Poseidon—you won’t encounter them
        unless you bring them along inside your soul,
        unless your soul sets them up in front of you.

        Hope the voyage is a long one.
        May there be many a summer morning when,
        with what pleasure, what joy,
        you come into harbors seen for the first time;
        may you stop at Phoenician trading stations
        to buy fine things,
        mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony,
        sensual perfume of every kind—
        as many sensual perfumes as you can;
        and may you visit many Egyptian cities
        to gather stores of knowledge from their scholars.

        Keep Ithaka always in your mind.
        Arriving there is what you are destined for.
        But do not hurry the journey at all.
        Better if it lasts for years,
        so you are old by the time you reach the island,
        wealthy with all you have gained on the way,
        not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.

        Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey.
        Without her you would not have set out.
        She has nothing left to give you now.

        And if you find her poor, Ithaka won’t have fooled you.
        Wise as you will have become, so full of experience,
        you will have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.

        You see what I mean?
