Just a few random things to add while i’m thinking of it. I was having dinner with some friends one nite, and in walks Marissa. She’s a sweet girl, and I’d not seen in in the 2 or 3 years since David and I broke up. She e-mailed me the pic.
I also wanted to include this little story I read online, but wanted to keep it for my own referral.
Him:: there once was a little red cardinal name Jay.
Him:: you may have heard one of his stories before.
Him:: but tonight’s story is altogether different…
Me: something about ball-step whatever in the sky
Him:: Jay was a firey red head of a cardinal… he loved to sing and dance, and do shuffle ball changes in the sky to the rhythm of silly broadway musicals all the day long.
Him:: but Jay was a very troubled bird.
Him:: He loved so hard that it made him sad. He loved his friends, he loved his family, he loved his cat…
Him:: but the last thing he every considered loving… was himself.
Him:: So many times… Jay was hurt over and over again. He simply didn’t know how to make it stop.
Him:: It was as if everything was crashing down around him.
Him:: There was no stopping it.
Him:: He felt trapped.
Him:: He felt more alone than he ever had… (he had just been rebuffed again by the Evil Blue Jay with whom he was in love)…
Him:: Things didn’t seem like they could get any worse.
Him:: Until one day…
Him:: Jay rose from his nest… realized that his pet worm… the nightcrawler, Luna (not to be mistaken for Yuna) was in dire need of his assistance.
Him:: She needed him like no one ever had — she was not well — and needed someone to help her heal.
Him:: Like the person Jay had stiven to become for so long…
Him:: he was there for her.
Him:: The end.
Him:: the story does not REALLY end there.
Him:: because what Jay failed to realize in all of this…
Him:: what he failed to see clearly…
Him:: was that he had been there for EVERYONE… at one point or another.
Him:: when they really needed him.
Him:: What he also failed to realize…
Him:: is that everyone remembered it too…
Him:: even the Evil Blue Jay, who had once again broken his heart.
Him:: What he had no concept of — was that everyone loved him very dearly… and cared SO much about his well being — that in his own time of need… they would be there.
Him:: the story will eventually pick up… whenever the beautiful red cardinal, Jay… finally realizes this…
Him:: the end.
Him:: for now.
