Favorite Quote:
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."

Today I dreamed of daisies
And babies
They were so beautiful I wanted to cry
I thought, what is it that I want?
Daisies and babies was my only reply.
Last night I dreamed of pain
And sorrow
I questioned, is this what I want?
If only I'd known what I would know tomorrow
Dreams are for the indecisive
I want to surpass
The future is bright
Full of daisies and babies of the mind
Mind blossoming, developing, growing
Wait awhile girl, and happiness you will find
