You're right tatonka, I 'm still here. Just a bit bruised...been having a lot of falls lately. Still up though. :|
I want more from life than endurance! ( Note to self... stop feeling sorry for yourself)
Anyway..I am going to Burning Man in Aug!

“Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn't matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I'm going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.”

You can spend your whole life asking *what if* or you can live in the moment and see what happens.

"But always... always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler.
Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-- forever."
