Better Than We Are

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too. It’s not love to be static like the desert, nor is it love to roam the world like the wind. And it’s not love to see everything from a distance. […] It is we who nourish the Soul of the World, and the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. And that’s where the power of love comes in. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.”

  • Paulo Coelho

Marilyn Says…

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. – Marilyn Monroe

I’ve been going through a form of madness the past few days. About a month or so ago my MS Windows had to be killed. After disposing of the body (not all that hard when you don’t get a CD when you buy a new PC any more) I began to do it myself. Fixing the computer myself. I started with Ubuntu Linux. I will save you the process but it took a few days of installing, reinstalling, trying other versions and looking for help online. Tonight I have loaded up Xubuntu and so far it is ok. So far… Crossing my eyes, toes and fingers that I can still say that tomorrow and the next day and the week after that.

Where you Lead

Lyrics from The Gilmore Girls, found on Gilmore Girls Memories.

WHERE YOU LEAD – CAROLE KING

Wanting you the way I do
I only want to be with you
And I would go to the ends of the earth
Cause, darling, to me that’s you’re worth

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

If you’re out on the road
Feeling lonely, and so cold
All you have to do is call my name
And I’ll be there on the next train

Where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead

I always wanted a real home with flowers on the window sill
But if you want to live in New York City, honey, you know I will
I never thought I could get satisfaction from just one man
But if anyone can keep me happy, you’re the one who can

And where you lead, I will follow
Anywhere that you tell me to
If you need, you need me to be with you
I will follow where you lead
