Things About Me

Things I like:

Milkshakes, cats, big dogs (ok and some little non-annoying dogs), birds, the sound of the wind in the trees, skiing, the summer, red wine, swimming, road trips, taking really long baths, reading, playing on photoshop, rugby, baseball, family, coffee, taking long drives, flowers, computer games, NPR, watching TV with my mom, having a catch with my dad, camping, sailing, catching up with friends, lakes, 
the color orange and...

...this little monster.

Things I don't like:

Intolerance, when people get embarrassed (I can't stand movies that are funny because someone is embarrassed...),  driving into the sun, when people argue "politics", owing money, health insurance.

Things I am afraid of:

Being forgotten, being outside in thunderstorms, putting my hands in dark places

Favorite Quotes:

"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us"
~ Joseph Campbell

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
-John Wesley

‎"Given the choice between the experience of pain and nothing, I would choose pain."
- William Faulkner

I never saw a wild thing
sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough
without ever having felt sorry for itself.
- D.H. Lawrence

Now this is the Law of the Jungle--as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back--
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
- Rudyard Kipling

"He asked, "Lord, what about when there was only one set of footprints and also a straight line with footprints on one side and small, round circles on the other?" The Lord replied, "Those were the times that I carried you, and we were joined by a pirate pushing a wheelbarrow."
