    Thanks, it is very sound advice you give. We all could use some reminders that there is plenty to fight for. As I've heard before, we should take life with a grain of salt and a shot of tequila. I need a lime with that, too, but you get the point. =)

    I take pleasure in massaging my senses with music, photography, and reading. Music. Ah. A long friend of mine. I love electronic music and its instrumental soundscapes. Some of it having very tribal, natural-themed soundscapes: progressive trance, deep house, tech house, certain sub-genres of techno. Lots of tribal drums, congas, tabla, ngonis, flutes, shakers that sing, fuzzy warm Wurlitzers, funky and dissonant chords. They're all beautiful to me. Also a huge fan of folk rock from the era of the 1960s and 1970s, and early 1990s grunge rock, too, for when I need to hear someone close to life's deep challenges. Bob Dylan, Donovan, Creedence Clearwater, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, the Pretenders, Pearl Jam, Allman Brothers Band, RHCP, etc.

    Walks through city streets and parks are always a step away from the edge, too. It's amazing what people watching can do to lift a person's mood. And often times, I love to go farther out for an outdoor adventure, to go hiking or kayaking, namely. Hoping to get up to Maine this August with my girlfriend to visit her parents. Maine's outdoor beauty just leaves me awestruck, and I'm jealous of people from there when they belittle it! Oh what I wouldn't give to spend most of my time with that natural serenity. Maybe some allusion to Henry David Thoreau is in order.

    Also saw that you're from Maryland? Whereabouts? I was born and raised in the Annapolis area. I've been around the Potomac area these days, moved recently from Arlington to Capitol Hill.
