11.7.04 | And The New Black. Is Black. (An Analogy for the Emperors New Clothes).

I was bored with the old look, although i liked the txt more (It seemed prettier for a start)... i'll probably change it back again, when i get bored of this one, too... Personally i think the wonderful Tam's new look is something to aspire to... Even if she's not quite finished it yet.

There's a lot i want to say today, but just haven't got the energy. Sorry gentle reader. I've just sunk into a particularly low ebb.
normal services will resume... umm, soon-ish.

Instead, here's a poem by my favourite poet:Philip Larkin

Not apologizing if it spoils yer day. You can not click the link... You have that choice...

We are... borne through life by the choices we make. Some people... are blessed... with luck and good judgement. The rest of us merely find... that the people we become... are the people we wanted to be, and are... disappointed. Others find they are a long way from the people they wished themselves, yet some are content.
And at the end, the final exhale of breath, on turning to view the highways and byways, the decisions at crossroads, the perils and the joys of our journey, we find ourselves surprised that there is but one road from death to birth. And back again.

Night-night, gentle reader. See you in the morning.

Thanks for the poem, lovely. And what a stylin' template you have there!

And Aponia finds herself most prevalent in the darkness of the night when we are tormented by what could have been. Perhaps we should judge our lives less by our 'achievements' in monetary / materialistic form, but by the type of character we have and the pleasure we give other people. Your musings give me pleasure, so let that be one small seed of happiness that can blossom into something comforting.

The poem touched me. Touched on so many levels it's difficult to articulate.

Sending you rainbow hewed hugs, complete with little chocolate figures filled with strawberry filling that melt and...er, we'll not add the end bit on a public blog!
