Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke and dust, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “wow, what a ride!!!”

It’s not the number of breaths you take, but the number of moments that take your breath away.

We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, and acts the best.

Come back with your shield - or on it

Chance favors the prepared mind.

Life is Short. Love Hard. Eat the Cookies.

Pain heals, Chicks dig scars, Glory last forever.

Never hire a ferret to do a weasels job.

The only permanent rule in Calvin ball is that you can’t play it the same way twice.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.

tallblueeyedman: While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.

In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why
do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!

“It came without ribbons, it came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas (the thought) means a little bit more”

tallblueeyedman: So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail
A smile from a veil
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts
Hot ashes for trees
Hot air for a cool breeze
Cold comfort for change
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

tallblueeyedman: As some of you know...my career is pretty intense at times…I deal with issues that are nightmares to most…sometimes on a weekly basis. I'm not complaining...I love my job...but sometimes you need to take a break.

I came to Wire for this reason...not to look for anything or anyone...but as a distraction. Wire has done that...or should I say its denizens have...and much more. I’ve made some very good friends here…many more acquaintances…and hopefully no or few enemies.

That said...I never took Wire serious…always remembering it was just electrons on a screen...

...but in doing so...I often forgot that one's typed actions can very much hurt another…and regardless of intent or perception…these feelings are valid...especially with someone you bonded with.

My behavior has made me hurt and lose someone who became my best friend...both OL and RL...someone I love...someone who met every want and need I never knew I still had.

I am truly sorry for doing so. Not just because I lost her…one needs to take responsibilities of their actions and accept the consequences of them...but due to insecurities and doubts...I acted childish and foolish...and that's not who I am.

"The decisions you make...and the actions that follow... are a reflection of who you are. You cannot hide from yourself.”

I cannot hide from myself. I have failed myself…as I failed her.

So...I’m taking a break from Wire…I need to restore my clarity of purpose. I don’t know for how long I'll be gone...or if I'm even coming back. I’m not deleting…at least not yet…but I’m not going to be around for a while.

To my friends…I thank you for making me smile…for making me laugh…for taking me into your confidence…for trusting me as you told me your dreams…fears…secrets….and perhaps most importantly…asking for my opinion or advice. I am always honored and humbled that you do.

To everyone...as always…take care and be safe.

delightful_dina: Mine has been broken and I feel so very lost in the situation sadly. They expect me to just get over it and move on in which I have tried but every corner I turn things make me have doubt. I try to explain myself and the fact they have done this not me and make them understand where I am coming from and it just does not seem to be helpful. I agree 100 percent with all of the above and thank you for sharing.

tallblueeyedman: Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above

For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go

Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd have to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I the king

But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go

Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

tallblueeyedman: I've tried to leave it all behind me
But I woke up and there they were beside me
And I don't believe it but I guess it's true
Some feelings, they can travel too
Oh there it is again, sitting on my chest
Makes it hard to catch my breath
I scramble for the light to change

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

And if I stay home, I don't know
There'll be so much that I'll have to let go
You're disappearing all the time
But I still see you in the light
For you, the shadows fight
And it's beautiful but there's that tug in the sight
I must stop time traveling, you're always on my mind

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

We all need something watching over us
Be it the falcons, the clouds or the crows
And then the sea swept in and left us all speechless
Speechless

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
I wish that you
