There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.

Friedrich Nietzsche

So what are the odds of going into a gay bar and meeting a straight single girl who is attractive and has her life together? Well that is what happened the other night while out with my friend Danny and Brent. I went out with the intention of having a great time and watching the boys play and to my surprise i met an amazing person. People of this great planet say it happens when you least expect it. I seriously wasn’t expecting to meet someone with such strong chemistry and a great connection. I had sent my request out to the universe about meeting someone amazing (as i do every day) and all of a sudden she showed up.

We chatted and hit it off immediately. What was really weird was that when we talk, she talks about the exact same stuff as i do, and in the same manner. I was listening to her talk last night and i was getting freaked out about how similar we are. She was …

missed my flight...

Time invested in improving ourselves cuts down on time wasted in disapproving of others.

In my 22 years of traveling, I can say this is a first for me. I had two things against me. The first is that I thought the flight was at 6:45 do to the flyout curfew at San Diego of 6:30. And the second is, well, I was just too damn tired and must have hit snooze on the phone.

Sometimes it happens and sometimes you are ill prepared. I didn’t expect to wake up late and normally on travel days I am up before the alarm goes off, however on this day, i fell asleep hard at 1 am. I had just come home from a program in Irvine and after getting my laundry done, watching some TV, visiting with a friend and having dinner, I was wiped out.

I also think that subconsciously, i was ill prepped for this trip. Mentally I think i thought it didn’t matter since i have been in a funk lately. My attitude had dropped up to this point, but i decided that it is a choice to be happy. I am so bles…

connected, its what we really want in life

Never refuse any advance of friendship, for if nine out of ten bring you nothing, one alone may repay you.

Madame de Tencin

You know it occurred to me as i woke up this morning and gave thanks for all the amazing things, people and friends and as i was checking my email and my facebook, myspace, twitter, flutter, bitter, butter and 9000 other sites for new messages, that what I really long for is a connection. A sense of being connected with the world and that my friends love me or still remotely care about me. Sense of being connected and having good friends really matters to me. I would have to say it is top 10 in my book.

Some people need validation by being married or being in a loving relationship. Others validate by how much money is in their bank account. I measure by the friendships that i have and maintain. Sometimes I wonder if people get offended that I only send them a birthday card once a year, or say hi when i see that they have updated their myspace or facebook pa…

Lunch with Dave and Noah

So today I met with the usual cast of characters at Starbucks. We discussed the usual, love, life, love and the lack there of. When you really boil it down, there are lots of things you can discuss, like politics, the weather, your health, but it seems to come down to love and life. If you aren’t rich in both, it makes for a dull one or the other. I seem to think that a rich life is one that is littered with numerous friends and fantastic friendships and in those friendships becomes the objects of your affection, the object of your love.

I left at 10 and came to my home office and did some work regarding our business website and also looked into pricing out ziplock bags for our product to ship them with. I priced a few companies but realized i had requested the wrong sizes. The price seems right so we will look at increasing the bag size. I also responded to a few emails that I had been slacking on. I decided there was no better time than right now to get them out so i did. So…
