*Sings* I don't go ' round trying to be what I'm not. I don't waste my time trying to get what you got. I work at pleasing me cause I can't please you....that's why I do what I do and if you don't want to be down with me then you don't want to pick from my apple tree......~Erykah Badu
"It's not my responsibility to be beautiful. I'm not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you may or may not find me." ~W. Shire
"We are made to bleed and scab and heal and bleed again and turn every scar into a joke. We are made to fight and f!ck and talk and fight again and sit around and laugh until we choke." ~Amos
"Women who focus on style over substance usually find themselves in a big f!cking hole with other men who want to f!ck the hole. Oh so smooth, and none sophisticated. Because, you know, how sophisticated can hole-f!cking be." ~Autumn
"God dwells within you, as you."~ Gilbert
"We've become a nation of wolves, ruled by sheep. Owned by swine, over fed, and put to sleep. While the media elite declare what to think, I'll be wide awake, on the edge, and on the brink." ~Otep
"You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing." ~ Watts
Quotes By Eartha Kitt that I agree with
*My recipe for life is not being afraid of myself, afraid of what I think or of my opinions*
*A man comes into my life and I have to compromise? Stupid*
*Dont depend on other people to be responsible for you. Don't make yourself stressed out over nonsensical things like material things*
*A "Relationship" is a relationship that has to be earned! Not to compromise for....and I love relationships, I think they're fantastically wonderful, I think they're great, I think there's nothing in the world more beautiful than falling in love. But falling in love for the right reason, falling in love for the right purpose. Falling in love. Falling in love. When you fall in love, what is there to compromise about?*
*Its all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit....I fall in love with myself and I want someone to share it with me. I want someone to share me, with me*

Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you're looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I've got a few missing. It's ok though, because I've got some vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have this problem? I mean, there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation....so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type..I'm like "hey man, magenta!" and he's like, "oh, you mean purple!" and he goes off on his purple thing, and I'm like, no I want magenta!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Let's get lost in the trails at Rotary Park...wade through the creeks while listening to the sounds of nature. Maybe a picnic...let's snack while we sip Oliver Red wine. Sushi, anyone? If not, then maybe a coffee while taking a walk at the Marina. Or you could just surprise me!
