"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

Favorite Things For Favorite People
Over the last almost two years that this blog has been here, I've covered a lot of ground. I've recorded here everything from a condensed autobiography to reflections on the nature of my illness and how to overcome it to humorous and dramatic stories about other people to just my musings on the world, the nation, and God.
Oh, and there's been a few jokes as well. Can't forget those.
Well, since a lot of the readers of the blog have arrived lately, and I can't expect you to plow through hundreds of archived blog posts to get to the good stuff, I'm going to be assembling a few in the sidebar that I think are among the best. I'll be breaking them down by topic as I go.
I figure this will take a few weeks to get up to date, so expect additions. I'll try to let you know when I do that. As I list them, they will be in chonological order, so read from the top to the bottom. Enjoy, and I hope the script works on everyone's PC!
Update: I have been moving the majority of the site graphics to Hello.com, and am updating some of my archived entries with a few corrections and some new graphics. When I do that, the graphic itself may appear for a moment or two on the site as a separate post all by itself. If you happen on one of those, just ignore it.
Or call all your friends in the office over to ooh and ahh...
