I have been out of touch for quite awhile but intend to make up for my absence. Unfortunately, this lj is taking a different turn from past postings. I apologize in advance. If you wish to 'unfriend' me, I will understand. This lj has become an acquired taste, and not for everyone. If you wish to 'friend' me, I must warn you that I may not be able to respond in a timely manner to your postings. Thank you for your understanding.

Two favorite quotes:

"Each time someone stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope to humanity."

Robert F. Kennedy, American Senator, 1925-1968

"Life must be understood backwards. But it must be lived forward."

Søren Kierkegaard

"Anna aikaa naurulle, sillä se on sielun musiikkia. Leikkimielisyydelle, sillä se on ikuinen nuoruus. Rakkaudelle, sillä se on Luojan lahja."

"Give time for laughter for it's music of the soul. For playfulness for it's eternal youth. For love for it's a gift from God."

Mediocre people talk about people. Intelligent people talk about things. Brilliant people talk about ideas.

Things I detest: gossips, people who curse, and online stalkers
