God?

Bah. Deep Thought.

--J-Ko, 10-May-2004


Deep Thought was peanuts. But really, if it's such a good idea, why hasn't anyone done it yet?

--JanneJalkanen, 10-May-2004


Bah. Optimist.

Well, I hope you are a pessimist! Or at least a realist. Surrealist?

Moi? I'm a dreamer, shaper, singer, and maker. I study the mysteries of beauty and darkness, chip and software, truth and reality, men and women. These are my tools, and I know many things.

I am not an optimist, a pessimist, nor am I a realist nor a surrealist. I just am. I call things as I see them, I name things as I please, I do things that I like. Because I am free of fear, I can do this.

And I can laugh. And I can weep. I can be everything and nothing.

The most important thing one can do is to be true to yourself and lead a good life. The second most important thing is to love. And the third most important thing is to forgive.

Does anything else matter?

In my case nothing matters because it is too late to be free of fear.

Lol. I've been reading your blog for about a week now and I really like the entries where you comment on topics to lose sleep over. :)

--Julia, 12-May-2004


Thank you. I think.

And now I'll lose sleep over wondering who you are :-).
