This statement was part of another post, but it got lost. I just wanted to put it out there 'cause it makes me smile everytime I read it. I can actually picture it!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

If you fall down 10 times, Stand up 11.

I plan to have no shiney new nused parts to trun in at the "Great Equiptment Check-In". Everything I turn in will be worn out, patched, held together by duct tape, frayed, and have holes in it. And wait 'til they see the smile it's turned it with.

I used to joke that I'll die riding something fast, curvy and Italian.

Good post.

I know another saying: It is harmful to smoke, it is distasteful to drink, but dying healthy is a grief.

I apply the H.O.W. method to life: HONEST = telling the whole story as is - straight up, beginning to end; OPEN MINDED = able to listen and believe the honesty presented; WILLING TO CHANGE - being erady to act on what you honestly know about yourself.

One more just as important: If you don't talk it out You'll acft it out!!

I like this -

very much -

I may have an odd life -

but - i'd rather die happy - and myself - than -

put on a show for others -

besides - they're not the others i want to be around -

the ones who make me feel good - for me - will keep me feeling loved -
rather than always - at a deficit.

woooo hoooo -

here's for wacky gay artists! -
