wanting a strong cerebral movie, i watched 'solaris' last night [the soderberg version]. it was the third time i've seen it and i loved every minute of it. i wanted to write an essay about all of its observations on humanity and it all, but this morning i woke up and decided that today would be a good day.
no need for some heavy philosophy--it's saint patrick's day.
i like st. patrick's day. i like the feeling of green and the freshness that it brings in the middle of march. and a few years ago i had a really cool story to tell on this day involving me and a byu traffic cop.
looking through my files last night, i found what is hands down the best e-mail forward i have ever received. it never fails to brighten my day and make me happy, and i want to share it [i think the traffic cop is the one who sent it to me]:
always try to help a friend in need
believe in yourself.
but remember, it's ok to be afraid sometimes.
give lots of kisses
don't be overly concerned with your weight
alway try to see the glass half full
meet new people, even if they look different to you
even if it seems rather hopeless!
take a nap if you need one...
have a good sense of humor and laugh often
love your friends, no matter who they are
don't waste food
take an occasional risk
relax, even on those stressful days....
try to have a little fun each day
and it's important, not matter what...
to work together as a team,
to share a joke with your friends and neighbors,
and fall in love with someone special....
say 'i love you' often.
express yourself creatively.
always be up for surprises
share with a friend
and remember the saying,
good things happen to good people!
there is always someone who loves you more than you know.
exercise a little each day!
live up to your name.
hold on to good friends--they are few and far between!
and remember, this friend is thinking about you.
happy saint patrick's day!
