'if' by Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

Public Napping?

Public naps? 

      These are not the homeless that are grabbing a nap  

in a safe place, but people who are exhausted and just


  At MOMA in NYC last year... this is a soft place to rest.

The soft purring/snore is lovely.

Travel with family...

In the mid 1960's we crossed the USA and visited all sorts of attractions etc... Here is a classic photo of my family, my dad in the middle and my sister and I on both sides of him... in the background brightly washed out is the Grand Canyon. 
I may have been frowning because of the bright light or envious of the unknown girl with her binoculars.
Here is another photo on that same day with mom.
We have a wonderful life.

Smells in my Elevator

Dear Reader...
     I have had a few elevator adventures and I am saving those up for another post... but lately I have been making note of the strange and wonderful smells I have experienced in my elevator.  First you should know that I live on the 20th floor and the elevator has a window/glass wall that looks over the city so I get a wonderful view of the street and all kinds of life going on there.  As soon as I moved here last fall, I realized I would be spending a lot of time going up and down to my car, to the street, to the mail box, and other errands.  I began to notice that when there was a smell in the elevator I had plenty of time to think about what it was... at one of my first discerning moments I decided I had to take notes... It was a strange mixture of ...
  • Cheetos and wet stinky dog
     I visualized a guy with a bag of Cheetos who had just walked his dog out in the rain.

The list continues for several more rides, I smell...
  • Tacos
  • Sweaty workout someone
  • Paint
  • Strong perfume - Bad!
    All fairly easy to understand why they would be in an elevator... then this one.
  • A sour Ginger smell
     I was visualizing someone was carrying some kind of sushi, with ginger on it...but somehow it was rotten.

Next came these...
  • Rotten Orange
  • Beer
  • Compost
  • Oddly metallic
     Then my state legalized the private use of small amounts of Marijuana... so
  • Strong smell of Pot! I tried not to second hand smoke any!
Finally I got some fairly nice smells...
  • Flowers
  • Cheeseburgers
  • Nail Polish remover
  • Perfume - good!
Now I am paying attention and taking notes quite often.  Here comes...

  • Gas
  • Yeast - like a bagel
  • Super stinky tennis shoes.
     This brings me up to today... I may continue my list or perhaps realise this is a silly exercise that shows how small my brain actually is, in any case, I do wonder what goes on in the cubicle apartment, life of my fellow renters that so many smells get out to the elevator and beyond.

Wow, I cannot believe I have been too busy to post!

      Well I have been very busy, the internship turned out to be an all consuming event.  I have claimed my life back and am now working on a relaxing, fun, spring break with family and friends....

      So I was having a little dinner the other day when I overheard someone talking about gun laws, being a CCL holder I was interested.  They were talking about fashionable ways for girls to carry, and this little tidbit floated over to me ... check out this really cute site that offers adorable purses, just right for that bulky item. :)
