good morning yall
ive already run outta time today
n its only 10 30
i need to go to bed later
get up earlier
and werk way harder
so many things passing across my desk
(as if i have a desk….)
i cant keep up
my email folder is a mass of unread n unanswered emails
for that i apollo jise
im neglectin’ everythin’
im gettin everyone angry w/ me

yesterday i got the very sad n alarming news
that one of my elder daughters
has been diagnosed with a rare condition
and must have a nasty operation
next wednesday
this is of course very fathers worst nitemare
come true
but im a lot more scared than she is
and after talking at length with her last nite
i am so proud of her courage
in the face of adversity
and by her cheerfulness n optimism
i dunno if i coulda accepted this
when i was 15
elekra im so proud of ya
and i love ya so much
sorry to get all misty on ya mah fiendss
this is a huge thing for me
i hope i can face it with the grace n courage
that elektra is showing
watch out peple
nothing is permanent here
not yer health
not yer family
nor youth, money, power
its all precarious n fragile
n ya GOTTA appreciate it
while it lasts
everything else seems a little frivolous now
i guess
i’ll bee back tomorrow

    Very nice! I found a place where you can
    get a new game system, Just go to the site below
    and put in your zip to see what’s available in your area.
    I sold mine and got some extra cash!

    There is a Buddhist saying “Learn what you need to know”

    Think you have – ‘nothing is permanent’

    Each second we’re granted will never be again

    Savour each second – treasure is found in the seconds – not in the sum of minutes, hours, days, – lifetime

    The seconds enable us to cope – to accept – to fight – to expand

    sk – Elektra can guide you

    I feel so bad for you. Please don’t apologize for getting misty. I got misty just reading this and imagining being in your shoes or having something happen to my precious little boy. It is every parent’s nightmare, but your daughter is strong and she will help guide you. I will think constant good thoughts about you and Elektra and hope that everything goes well with the operation.

    I can´t think of something to say that hasn´t been said in the previous posts but I´ll be thinking of you and Elektra alot the next few weeks. Been through some of that myself and they (the kiddies) are so brave and positive and that´s the only way to do it, I guess, but it´s heart-wrecking to worry about them and try to stay sane and steady yourself.

    To Elektra (and your mum and dad)…the words of Dr Seuss (modified slightly)….be brave, be loved, and just be…..

    “Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!
    There are points to be scored. there are games to be won.
    And the magical things you can do with that ball
    will make you the winning-est winner of all.
    Fame! You’ll be famous as famous can be,
    with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

    Except when they don’t.
    Because, sometimes, they won’t.

    I’m afraid that some times
    you’ll play lonely games too.
    Games you can’t win
    ’cause you’ll play against you.

    All Alone!
    Whether you like it or not,
    Alone will be something
    you’ll be quite a lot.

    And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance
    you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
    There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
    that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

    But on you will go
    though the weather be foul
    On you will go
    though your enemies prowl
    On you will go
    though the Hakken-Kraks howl
    Onward up many
    a frightening creek,
    though your arms may get sore
    and your sneakers may leak.

    On and on you will hike
    and I know you’ll hike far
    and face up to your problems
    whatever they are.

    You’ll get mixed up, of course,
    as you already know.
    You’ll get mixed up
    with many strange birds as you go.
    So be sure when you step.
    Step with care and great tact
    and remember that Life’s
    a Great Balancing Act.
    Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
    And never mix up your right foot with your left.

    And will you succeed?
    Yes! You will, indeed!
    (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)


    be your name Buxbaum or Kilbey or Bray
    or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
    you’re off to Great Places!
    Today is your day!
    Your mountain is waiting.
    So…get on your way!”

    Don’t apologise for loving your child! You sound like a wonderful, loving father, whether near or far. As one who was introduced to the impermanence of life and the fragility of health a little sooner than I would’ve liked, I hear you on that topic! More importantly I send light and love and positive energy to you, your family and especially to Elektra. She sounds like a wise soul – a bit like her ol’ dad.

    from saint francis

    Praised be You my Lord with all Your creatures,
    especially Sir Brother Sun,
    Who is the day through whom You give us light.
    And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour,
    Of You Most High, he bears the likeness.

    Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars,
    In the heavens you have made them bright, precious and fair.

    Praised be You, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air,
    And fair and stormy, all weather’s moods,
    by which You cherish all that You have made.

    Praised be You my Lord through Sister Water,
    So useful, humble, precious and pure.

    Praised be You my Lord through Brother Fire,
    through whom You light the night and he is beautiful and playful and robust and strong.

    Praised be You my Lord through our Sister,
    Mother Earth
    who sustains and governs us,
    producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.
    Praise be You my Lord through those who grant pardon for love of You and bear sickness and trial.

    Blessed are those who endure in peace, By You Most High, they will be crowned.

    Praised be You, my Lord through Sister Death,
    from whom no-one living can escape. Woe to those who die in mortal sin! Blessed are they She finds doing Your Will.

And I mean, I cannot go online because I will sit there and just get stuck getting distracted due to my ADD and then I will go off searching about something weird like attract women radionics radionics exceedglobal co and then go visit that same site and forget totally about my purpose in the first place.
