--WHO SAYS YOU HAVE TO?
…It’s the start of a new week and I’m back from Portland, albeit a little beat up.One of the best things in life is laughing until you cry. I did that a few times this weekend.
…I’m a list-maker. To Do lists anyway. It helps keep me grounded, focused. There’s a lot of my list right now, so time to get to it, but first here are some things to like:
-"Being a father is the only thing that lives up to the hype. When I'm with my daughter - when we're doing homework together or hanging out watching a movie or kicking a soccer ball around or doing any of the things we do - that's the only time I feel like I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing." Aaron Sorkin
-"Writing is making sense of life. You've worked your whole life and hopefully you've made sense of one small area." Nadine Gordimer
-"Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference." Nolan Bushnell
-"I will make love my greatest weapon and none on who I call can defend against its force....My love will melt all hearts liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest day." Og Mandino
-"The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining." John F. Kennedy
-"You can improve your talent, but your talent is a given, a mysterious constant. You must make it the best of its kind." Gore Vidal
-"Name me someone that's not a parasite and I'll go say a prayer for him." Dylan, "Visions of Johanna"
-"The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good." Brian Tracy
