Life in General

Dsc00643.jpg This is (part of) San Francisco!!!!
How beautiful is this place? That's one of the views from the Golden Gate Bridge looking at the East Bay Bridge and Coit Tower. I wanted to share a picture of it, because it really is a pretty city. I went picture crazy when my sister was here and took lots of pretty photos of San Francisco, so if you want to see them you can.

I am nostalgic because it looks as if I will be 'moving on' for a while. I have some exciting opportunities over the next few months, and I will probably leave San Francisco in the next three weeks. I don't want to say anymore until I have plans "set in stone" but something is about to change. I am waiting another week or so to "make it official." Oh, in case you haven't noticed I am "quote" happy tonight. How annoying is that?

On another note: I just watched Waking Life for the first and second times today. (Yes, I had heard about it a few years back, and yes everyone told me to watch it, and yes I wanted to see it, but I still only saw it Sunday). I hope you all see it. It made me think a lot, even though I tend to do that anyway. And it reminded me of a sign that I saw on Morton St. in the West Village just after Sept. 11th. Someone had spray painted the wall of the corner store with the words YOU ARE ALIVE. And I remember thinking I won't take life for granted. I will remember to live. And sometimes when I need to, when I feel like I am going through the motions, I think about that sign. Waking Life was like another sign. As sappy as that sounds the movie says a lot of things:

"It's always our decison who we are."
"Life is yours to create."
"When you're born you're handed a box of crayons. It doesn't matter if it's an 8 pack or 16, it's how you use the colors..."

This is nothing. You have to see this movie...
and ask yourself...
Did you remember to live today?
