I like John Steinbecks letter to his son about falling in love:
November 10, 1958
We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.
First -- if you are in love -- that's a good thing -- that's about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don't let anyone make it small or light to you.
Second -- There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you -- of kindness and consideration and respect -- not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had.
You say this is not puppy love. If you feel so deeply -- of course it isn't puppy love.
But I don't think you were asking me what you feel. You know better than anyone. What you wanted me to help you with is what to do about it -- and that I can tell you.
Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.
The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.
If you love someone -- there is no possible harm in saying so -- only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.
Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.
It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another -- but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.
Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I'm glad you have it.
We will be glad to meet Susan. She will be very welcome. But Elaine will make all such arrangements because that is her province and she will be very glad to. She knows about love too and maybe she can give you more help than I can.
And don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens -- The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

Music: 80s music...ahhh good times. Techno, Classical, soundtracks, Jazz, experimental, some country, a bit of hip-hop (but I can never remember the names!

My last soundtrack purchases were "Drive" and "World War Z."

Food: I can pretty much eat anything. Ever have jellyfish? Pass on that stuff! Can't stand tequila by itself, only in a mix. A college experience ruined that. I like trying different coffees and I do like green tea as well.

"Truth is in the motive. You are what you do, not what you say. Anyone can claim their music is making a political statement. Anyone can believe it. But until a piece of music starts swinging hammers and elections, it hasn't got a beat anyone trying to change this junkyard of a planet can dance to." ~Andrew Vachss
"We sleep safe because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence upon those who would do us harm." - Attributed to R. Kipling, or George Orwell, or W. Churchill
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing’ (or words to that effect)- Edmund Burke
"If you're trying to be politically correct you're like a chameleon in front of a mirror. What can you say that won't be offensive to somebody?" - Robin Williams
"Dare greatly. It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena."- Theodore Roosevelt
