Let’s talk about:
The comments that you left in response to Thursday’s blog
I was blown away by a couple of things: 1) the TRUTH that was so evident in so much of what you were saying, and 2) the HONESTY about something that isn’t easily summed up in a cliché phrase. I love that so many of you felt free to share a glimpse into your own stories and experiences with that curious thing called Love.
For the record, I am in agreement with many of you: I don’t believe in “The One”; rather, I think that I will wind up with “A One.” If I believed in “The One,” I would have married JC Chasez when I was 15.
And on a personal note, I loved it when Casey said, “You ‘know’ when your introvertedness doesn’t mind sharing your space with that person.” I’m pretty sure that in my case, that will be the flashing marquee sign telling me to go to Vegas RIGHT THIS SECOND.
Lord of the Rings
Last week, my roommate Julie told me that she had never read nor seen “Lord of the Rings.” I think that I shrieked, “WHAT??!?” and then fell down dead. But after the disbelief came action, and we watched “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Two Towers” this weekend.
Have you ever had the chance to watch something epic – something that has changed your own life, something that has become an essential piece of how you view the world – affect someone else for the first time? It was so, so fun – and I think that Julie is hooked, even though she kept calling Strider “Striker.”
Micah’s 6th birthday
Yesterday, my nephew Micah turned 6. I saw him last week, and when I asked him about his upcoming birthday, he said, “I can’t wait to turn 6! When you are 6, you can do SUCH FUN THINGS – like a cartwheel and lose a tooth!”
And my cynical, disillusioned heart melted into a puddle.
