The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

  8. I like the paint job, but I think it would have looked better the other way, with the red on the bottom and the purple horseman showing up complete. I would look like it fades in.

    Re your comment: You're right about the Looney Toons. I knew something looked familiar.
    I really like the philosophy of life you write in your profile.
