"You're so practical, greenie  : ) For me, it would be: Can you live with the 99% without endlessly being sorry about it afterward? If you can *enjoy* the 99% fully and be content with it, then, stay home. If you're gonna' always…"

"Anna it sounds like Woodstock! I'd guess some camaraderie and mutual bonding could happen. But if in your place, yeah, I'd stay home too. 90% in the comfort of your own yard with bathroom and snacks sounds worth losing the 10%. I've…"

Total eclipse of the sun

For months now, I've been thinking ...oh, 99% that's pretty close, close enough anyway.  

Right?  

I'm not so sure now. I've been doing my googling and 'they' are saying, just that one percent makes the difference between interesting and totally awe inspiring.  Life changing, even.…

Is happening, right now.  Has been decided, but I just don't know.  There's the elections, the protesting going on where I grew up, and then my oldest son.

Hi,

I found a letter written by Hunter S Thompson, before he became famous, on how to find your purpose. It's a brilliant letter that he wrote to a friend on his personal life philosophy and I've linked it at the end of my bog. I hope you go back to read it.

I also just realized that we haven't friended here so I sent you a request.
