You've got a 6th toe on your left foot? On the right?

Although I watch a lot of TV, and by a lot I mean a LOT, I always make time to read before turning out the lights. What passes for non-fiction on TV is garbage (hello, History Channel, I'm talking to you) so I gravitate to the sitcoms. For example, I'm downright giddy that Californication is back in its 4th season. Not that I'm unhappy about Top Gear coming back for it's 16th. But when it comes to books, I don't know, I just can't go for fiction unless it's funny. I was only moderately imaginative as child and though I'm still very childish I like to think I'm still imaginative. When people ask me to Guess What? I take it as a challenge. I just lost my taste for fictional literature along the way, including losing my belief in the supernatural. I've been around for a while now and seen some pretty incredible stuff. For a time, I barely engaged my senses, but I have seen the light. To fully experience the beauty the world has to offer takes all five senses. I can't help but think that if there was a sixth, especially the ability to read other people's minds, it would all become ugly again.

A day late

"There is indeed a peculiar charm, both in friendship and in Eros, about those moments when Appreciative love lies, as it were, curled up asleep, and the mere ease and ordinariness of the relationship (free as solitude, yet neither is alone) wraps us round. No need to talk. No need to make love. No needs at all except perhaps to stir the fire."
- C. S. Lewis

Let's just talk about the weather

Another wintery front came through town yesterday. It's downright cold, for the South anyway. The brisk north wind is somewhat invigorating. It makes me want to lace up my sneakers and go running.

Running, however, makes me want to stop.
