A thought or two

Although we all have dreams of what we want to become or of what we had hoped to become, most of us take an all-or-nothing approach to it. I know I do. It wasn't until yesterday that I realized it doesn't have to be that way. There is a middle path. We may get paid a little less, we may work a little harder but all-in-all, we'd be a lot happier. I guess what I'm saying is, a lot of us treat our jobs as temporary, a stepping stone of sorts ... only to realize that our dreams may never come true. We then realize that the stepping stone was actually an island ... an island we never managed to get off of.

Needless to say, I got a new job.

The shortest and most profound thing I could think of

Wake up!

New hobby!

I've got a new hobby, almost. I signed up with the Archers of Caledon. Yes, I want to pick up archery. My brother has been doing it for some time now and I've been meaning to join myself but finally just took the initiative. From the way I'm writing this, it sounds rather fresh doesn't it? I should add, this sudden burst of initiative came out over three weeks ago. I signed up three weeks ago and am still waiting for them to process my membership application. They didn't waste any time taking my money but actually setting me up, uh no, that must takes weeks of course!!!!

I'm pissed. In any case, my bow looks really cool!

Left Undone

Here's something I worked on late Friday night. Everyone else I know was out doing stuff but this is all I wanted to do.

Time gone by

It's been about a month since my last post and to be fair, it's been over two since I made a real one. It would take about another three to write about it all so I think I'll just look forward instead of back. And yet in looking forward ... I can't help but look back.

I have dreams. Or is it spirit?? And why are people so intent on crushing it? I'm fine, I'm happy but I often wonder ... what happens to us?

We've all been through the ringer a few times, I know, it changes us. Sometimes for the better but mostly for the worse. But why??

Life is uncertain yet death is guaranteed.
The world is uncontrollable yet everything is connected.
Your possessions are yours yet you own nothing.

Strip away all the names and labels and dollars and cents. All that we are, all that is left, are our intentions ... our dreams.

I pray that I never give up on my dreams. I pray you never give up on yours.
