First off, I want to address the subject of off-topic comments to blogs. There is currently a running discussion about this in Live Soapbox Group called:
(TG, you don’t mind a plug, do you?) So, I want to publically state my preference:
Off Topic Conversations Allowed Here!
Conversations have a life of their own. In my humble opinion, conversations that take off on a tangent are the most fun. I feel honored if people come to my space, take their shoes off, and shoot the breeze. A conversation is like a box of chocolates, and I like surprises! I like not knowing what I’m going to get in my comments. I feel especially honored when I wake up to find out that friends were hanging out in my Space after I left! I’m happy that my friends feel comfortable enough to make themselves at home.
Now that this has been said, here is a topic, and I expect you to stick to it! Har har har….
This morning, I happened to be thinking of the philosophy of the Rolling Stones:
“You can’t always get what you want; but if you try sometime, you might find, you get what you need”
That line is short, but powerful, and I have loved it since I first heard that song in junior high school.
I’m curious to hear what lines of songs you like, I would especially like to hear your favorite philosophical lines, but that is not mandatory.
This morning, while my internet was down, I caught myself thinking:
“Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone, you take paradise, put up a parking lot”
from a song sung by Joni Mitchell. I really appreciated how much I enjoy being in my home community, Windows Live.
So, come on in, relax, take your shoes off.
