Liz's Rules for Life:

"Shared Pain is Lessened. Shared Joy is Increased. Thus do we refute entropy."

(Spider Robinson, various places.)

"This is what it is to be human: To see the essential existential futility of all action, all striving - and to act, to strive. ... This is what it is to be human: to reach forever beyond your grasp. ... This is what it is to be human: to live forever or die trying. ... This is what it is to be human: to perpetually ask the unanswerable questions, in the hope that the asking of them will somehow hasten the day when they will be answered. ... This is what it is to be human: to strive in the face of the certainty of failure. This is what it is to be human: to persist."

(from Spider & Jeanne Robinson: Stardance, 1979)

"If permanence were possible, why do the seasons change?"

(Naguib Mahfouz: The Harafish)

I'm changing dramatically. I'm looking at myself, gazing into the mirror in my soul, and discovering that not only do I by and large like what I see, I'm *allowed* to love what I see.

There are parts that I don't like, and those will be shed, are being shed, have been shed.

Watch out. It's going to be a wild ride.

I have a bunch of opt-in filters that I post under, because I tend to post a lot. The current list is here. Fill out the poll if you want to be added to any or all of them.
