"Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless ó like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." Bruce Lee

'It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat" Theodore Roosevelt

Well praise God! Life sucks sometimes, but you can put up with a lot more suckiness when you're doing something you love along the way.

I love your quote in your status today. It's one of my favorite Tolkien quotes.

But my favorite one is: And it is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than any substance else that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Iluvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen." That is SO me!

Hugs,
Calen~

Was surprised to here you're thinking of going back. But perhaps the country would be better for your health? Doesn't sound like your living conditions in the city are all that great. Nah, don't worry. Not giving up SP. I've GOT to get back to logging my food as I'm stuck again. So the ad blocker you have, it keeps all these ads off SP? I may have to invest in that!
