Favorite Quote:
The early bird gets the worm but the second rat gets the cheese.

There is more to life besides increasing its speed.


I see you
You see me
Passing by

Your eyes are brown
And seem to know things
Mine don’t

What are you?
Who are you?
What world do you live in?

Our eyes meet
For a half second
The corner of your mouth curls up

Then we pass by
And don’t look back
An opportunity gone

I can't say how many times this has happened-and ever time I always wonder what could've happened if I hadn't walked by.
