End of the Day

Happiness is: realizing there’s a long weekend ahead, ice-cold Snicker bars, lounging in the living room and watching baseball while catching up on Tweets and FB updates, and best of all: letting go of the day and picking up where I left off tomorrow. 🌼🌺🌻🌸💐

Given the scale of life in the cosmos, one human life is no more than a tiny blip. Each one of us is a just visitor to this planet, a guest, who will only stay for a limited time. What greater folly could there be than to spend this short time alone, unhappy or in conflict with our companions?

😹😹😹😹😹 One of the funniest TV ads. Love it.

I woke up at 3:20 AM this morning to a house that was shaking and rattling. A 6.0 earthquake has hit the Bay Area - the strongest in 25 years. My thoughts as the house shook for I don’t know how long (felt like a lifetime) was best summarized by this guy Matt Galligan on Twitter:

"@mg: Train of thought during earthquake: wtf? WTF!! Nonononononono find pants holy crap nonononoooo shoes shoes WHERE ARE SHOES?? Ok it’s over."

Thankful that I survived my first major quake in one piece with all my loved ones and friends safe and sound. And thankful that considering the magnitude of this quake, there were no fatalities or major disaster.

Itzhak Perlman playing Tango by Carlos Gardel. Amazing!

Thank you

The folks at banasubbers deserve a shoutout! Hardest working fans out there. 💛💛💛💛

My Saturday’s all set now with all these subbed videos to watch. Excellent!

Happy place.

Sometimes the best way to deal with shit… is to not hold yourself as such a precious little prize.

I am old, Gandalf. I don’t look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can’t be right. I need a change, or something.

These are so amazing! What I would give to own one of these:

"Planting Rice," "Katipunero," Sunset" and "Farmers Working and Resting" - all by the great Filipino painter, Fernando Amorsolo (1892-1972)

San Francisco, baby!

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling
