Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

hmm, exactly what IS that list? Strange strange list. Why are the lord of the rings and narnia chronicles, jane auel books only listed once, whereas the Harry Potter books get separate listings? Haven't heard of half of those. And it's heavy on the roald Dahl too.

Hmmm. I have a whole slew of books I own and haven't read, but this list missed them all pretty much.

Ok, back to work. I did have an eventful day, which I will try to write about before I hit the sack. If I ever feel I get enough work done... I keep procrastinating. bad bad blogreader me. And now I am looking at baby stuff too, like tummytubs and baby hammocks. Dang.
