those who were seen dancing – 354/366

The music genre I listen to the most is __________

According to my iTunes play count my preferred songs are;

  1. Classical (including opera)
  2. Bluegrass
  3. Rock

I have always claimed a varied and eclectic taste in music, though I am not sure this proves much of anything.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

unveil them to the eyes of men – 353/366

What was my weakness today in the last twenty-four hours?

Mr. Caudle has a weakness for gingerbread nuts

My being is my biggest weakness, though it also happens to be my biggest strength. I tend fall easily into the traps of solitude.

“Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men. Silently and perceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or weak; and last some crisis shows what we have become. ”
~ Brooke Foss Westcott

I advise you to do the same – 352/366

What is one thing I was told today in the last twenty-four hours that I don’t want to forget?

Hmm – nothing magnificently radical comes to mind. Though I think hearing my son tell me he loved me was particularly heartwarming and wonderful and worthy of remembering in some for of perpetuity.

 

“You’ll forget it when you’re dead, and so will I. When I’m dead, I’m going to forget everything–and I advise you to do the same.”

so many pages to a person – 351/366

Who do I wish had been part of my day?

I don’t know – I spent the day with my son and my mother and then the evening with my son and my husband.

It was the first time I had spent time with my mother since before Thanksgiving, it was nice and the rough edges to our relationship are getting smoothed. We got pedicures, and that was rather nice.

“For if we’re destroyed, the knowledge is dead…We’re nothing more than dust jackets for books…so many pages to a person…”
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
