      These are some of the stuff I've saved that's worth reading - mostly enightening- I guess--

      "To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. Take the time to run through the rain."

      -neutral:- Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain."

      -neutral:-"Life may not be the party we hoped for but while we're here we should dance..."

      Above quotes were copied from email forwards that you and I  have read the last email years of our lives.

      Something about -Life as to Time as to Dance (Rain, Survival, Struggle -)

        Oh, in that case I have to call onthewriteside on his "on the edge" statement as I KNOW I've heard that one before...sorry buddy wink
        Okay, here goes~
        Your affiliation to family, religion, or school bears no importance in who you really are as a person. Only you alone can determine that through how you conduct yourself in the world and in how you interact with others.
        See, Tenzin's was waaaay better! smile

    1.  Hope is a choice.
    2.  The waves of the ocean erases the marks etched in the sand on a continual basis. Life is dynamic and on a daily basis. the page is erased, allowing a new story to be written every day.
