my whole mission just seems so finite

my whole saga just seems so cheap

30 July 1981
but i finally drove out where
the sky is dark enough to see stars
and i found i missed no one
just listenin' to the swishin' of distant cars...

swim - ani d. (2004)

this is a very personal place for me...more of a journal than a blog. my journal is friends only because people have been psycho to me in past lives. if you see me in a community, feel free to ask to be added and i'll let you know. :)

i am an animal lover.
i am a vegetarian.
i am crafty, with a special fondness for the uber-productive feeling i get from knitting.
i am a yoga fanatic and aspiring teacher teacher in training teacher (yay!).
i am a burner, for better or for worse.

i am anti-war.
i am anti-"war on drugs".
i am anti-fundamentalism.
i am anti-homophobia.
i am anti-oppression.
i am anti-misogyny and dislike forced gender roles in general.

i am pro-equality for everyone.
i am pro-human rights.
i am pro-gay marriage.
i am pro-reproductive rights.
i am pro-abortion rights.

i am what i call a zen atheist, with a touch of yogic philosophy thrown in for good measure.
i am obsessed with older, bald, british men.

if you have an issue with any of these things, i don't suggest friending me. you'll probably find my journal not so fun. :D

this is how it works:
you're young until you're not
you love until you don't
you try until you can't
you laugh until you cry
you cry until you laugh
and everyone must breathe
until their dying breath

no, this is how it works:
you peer into yourself
you take the things you like
then try to love the things you took
then you take that love you made
and stick it into some
someone else's heart
pumping someone else's blood
and walking arm in arm
you hope it don't get harmed
but even if it does
you just do it all again
