"I know all this and more... "

Ok it's close to bed time, BUT!
but... I had something to say so here I am, saying it.

I feel very lucky.


Easy, I'm alive. I have a boyo I adore, I know who I am and what I am, I know all this and more.

Today kitkat told me that The Prids were in an accident whilst touring down in CA. 2 of them have major issues and the other 2 are banged up badly, but not horrible. The Prids happen to be a PDX band and friends of kitkat's (one of whom I know). All of a sudden, everything they knew is totally different, with hopes that nothing but recovery await the 2 with severe injuries. Their van is totalled and who knows how the equipment is. I can't imagine what M is going through other than trying to get her life back into focus... or even wondering about things that might not be later.

I'm lucky. I'm really lucky.

However, I think that aside from feeling this, I also have to remember it as a warning for that which I think I have plenty of time for today, may not be there tomorrow. Things change in an instant, in a second, in 15 minutes. Whatever the time, it's still so small that we can't even think we'll have time to get used to it.

So what are you waiting for?

Do what you're supposed to be doing already!


my thoughts go out to The Prids and anyone else that was traveling with them....

When things are going well for me, I'm always afraid of what waits around the corner. I don't sit around though I live while I can! :o)

Bee- you too!? really, really? I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop!... ok not always... but I can't help but think, "If this is so good now, what's gonna happen later and when will later be?!"

I don't let it get to me anymore, but I can't help but think it, you know?

Liz- last I heard it was only David from the band that had to go back in to surgery. I'm not sure what happened though, as kitkat says that she's not been able to get a hold of M since her VM is full and I'm sure she needs to get a hold of LOADS of people.

I hope they're ok. They've set up a place to take donations for the lot of them... I hope they're ok.
