smiles, everyone, smiles

Some pics from the Sonoma Chicken Coop with the Data Domain gang...

treasuring time

From "Time" by Ben's Brother:

A second, a minute, an hour, a day and it's gone
Little by little it fritters away
Try as you may you can never replace it
A moment of beauty you stumble upon,
As long as you treasure whatever it is,
Whatever it is could never be wasted

So if we all turn to dust
Better to've loved and lost
'Cause everything has a cost

From Firefly, "Heart of Gold" episode:

"...I ain't so afraid of losing something that I ain't gonna try to have it."

chosen family


From "Strangers in Paradise", trade volume 15:

Therapist: "Francine didn't leave you, baby...neither did David. They just had to move on with their lives. And that's okay. That's just life. That's what people do. And you have to let them go."

Katchoo: "Why?"

Therapist: "Because one day you're going to meet someone special -- someone who will love you and won't leave you. You don't want to miss it because you were looking over your shoulder at the past."

catching up

Tired. Work is getting to me...only so much energy to go around, and the mask is having to suffer. Things outside work go well, but with some very bittersweet overtones and heartache on the horizon. Trying to live 'now' and enjoy where my path has brought me...the whole "don't trouble trouble 'til it troubles you" approach. Never enough time for the things I want to do and the people I want to be with, and always too much that has to be done. Individual moments and periods of surprising contentment and happiness...wouldn't trade those for anything, even with the near future looming. Just need to shut up the 'yeahbutwhatif' part of me so I can relax into now. Easier said than done...
