Helping me feel less guilty about keeping in touch with people... keeping a timeline of life so when I get around to scrapbooking I'll have dates, times, names etc... one more excellent excuse to not go to sleep!

Well, we're on the downside of the Moving Mountain! Last week has become a blur -- a blur of soreness, pain, heat exhaustion, cleaning, cleaning, moving, cleaning, and shattered. But I'm back online and will post more details later... himself just got home from work.
Um.... I'm from California, then Arizona, then lived in Scotland for 5 1/2 years, now back in the desert -- have lived my life as if I'm going to miss something, so have done a little of this, a little of that, but am no expert in anything (yet). My philosophy is we make no mistakes, as we are the sum of our experiences - just learn from your life.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." ~ Calvin Coolidge
"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be & you help them to become what they are capable of being." ~ Goethe
"Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools." Ecclesiastes 7:9
"When you follow your bliss... doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else." ~ Joseph Campbell
"To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?" ~ Katharine Graham
"Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill." ~ W. C. Fields
