- Earlier this week I had an interesting conversation with a friend. I shared with her my belief that timing is VERY important (that 2 people who want the same thing at the same time are likely to work as a couple, whereas two people who don’t want the same thing at the same time are unlikely to work no matter how much they love each other). She politely disagreed. She believes that timing is important, but not nearly as important as I think it is. That if a guy loves a woman, is really crazy about her, then that would completely change his world/up-end his priorities. And he would make it work. Because he’d want it to. And if he didn’t love her THAT much, then he might let things like timing and work schedules and geography, etc. get in the way.

- Not too long ago I got an email from a friend with a link to a blogpost from a self-help guru type. It was a good post from a smart guy. Here is (part of ) my reponse, “Smart guy, though no matter how smart the author I have a knee-jerk negative reaction to personal development as a theme/subject. There’d be no great art / literature if everyone were happy and well-adjusted…(I had more to say, but that’s enough for here).
- I read this on tumblr over the weekend on one of my favorite tumblr sites. Words Left Unspoken by FabMissK, Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you. You just have to find the ones worth suffering for. Bob Marley
You could probably find a theme here, if you wanted to. Maybe even two or three.
