That's awesome, Misa! :D

I'm always so heartened when people who are far away or living in a place without tons of Burners are able to find one another.

I am so ridiculously happy, without reservations, for the first time in years. It almost feels strange, like something I am not meant to have, but now I do. Thank you all for the well wishes, for your friendship.

Kali so MMJ or Washington like Colorado? Yea I had great times with shots but I was forgetting and forgot some of the good times I was having and I don't want that. I'll stick to smoke and tripping 8) Roo=Bonnaroo Music Festival. Most looked at evening of the 4>3 hour set by Paul McCartney, then some dancing, then off to the polo fields to camp, unless I start dancing again haha ..... and yes vets, I know BMan is not a music festival....

I don't know why, but I've felt so domestic lately, nesting and everything. Last night it was bread, tonight pizza! I think it's because I've been so content with my life. I feel happiness inside. There's so many good things going on, I'm find that I love myself, and who I am. The changes, the soul searching, the acceptance of myself, has been cathartic. I'm at peace with many things, I've forgiven myself. Although it's been a long time coming, with the way things are progressing so far this year, the light is so bright. :)

You may seriously need some tissue to get through this story... It's a long read so let it load on your ride home (if you aren't driving) or before dinner...

This works I think for us all but esp for this board:

Ya'll (heheh) need to listen to these lyrics today while you are getting your act together. cr****

[media]


It's time to leave this rat race chant down babylon
Keep my head straight, keep my family movin' on
Find my own pace, create my own space
Detach my whole scene from this wicked rat race
The two-faced friends, the snakes in the grass
Daddy always told me there'd be men like that
So watch your own back keep your eye on your stacks
Don't ever write a check that that ass can't cash

This made me tear up. College kid & lifelong fan Michael Pollack asks Billy Joel if he can accompany him on the piano.
