Yeah, I like general landscaping, and my mom and brother are actually quite good at it, having done professional work even, and then my folks have moved a lot and needed to plant yards from scratch almost every time.  So, I have seen what my mom and brother do, which seriously looks like parks, and I just think ... heh  :-X ... about my yards.  What I would love to grow is a vegetable garden, I just *love* to do that, and then I would like to plant berry bushes, fruit trees, pumpkins and stuff around the yard as part of the landscaping.  I suppose half an hour a day of weeding sounds doable, so long as I can find my gloves !

Yeah, I have my gloves  in a metal bucket with all my other gardening hand tools.  Got it out the other day and then I get in the mood.  Yes, a vegatable garden is nice too.  I plan to do the boxed kind which is smaller and higher than ground level.  I plan to grow patio tomatoes and I do have a strawberry patch that is multiplying each year.  Pumpkins and squashes are easy to grow.  I hope you can grow your garden and enjoy!  :)

Why won't iTunes work?  Why do people think switching into music is a bad idea?  I can retire two years later to makeup for lost time anyway...  ;)  Need to wake up at 8AM tomorrow, something I haven't done in the past two weeks.  I need to learn to manage my time; I'm going to kickboxing tomorrow night even though I have an exam Tuesday morning... why am I not stressed that I have 4 exams this week?  Why was I stressed after getting accepted into music? 

I like to create what-if scenarios, and they pretty much seem almost too real that I freak out.  I imagined not getting into music, after having spent hours practicing for my audition, and failing three midterms which so HORRIBLY happened to the day before my audition.  If I didn't get accepted, I would've literally wasted my time and f'kd up my marks beyond repair.  Thank god I did... maybe that's why I'm not stressed about exams?  They don't influence how I'm going to do next year.  Fresh start I guess   :)

...hmm im going to go get some dill pickle chips right about now...

I hate it that musicians only talk about technique technique technique and teachers speak of teaching music as if it were citizen army training. Drills drills drills run up and down technique technique technique.

I don't remember the last time I've talked to someone about music.
I don't remember the last time I enjoyed playing.
I want to quit this bunch of lies they call a music course.

I think that ultimately we already do know, it's already within us.  And, actually, I think there is not that which is outside of us and then that which is within.  In some respect, I think that when we look to the stars, for example, and somehow glimpse an otherworldy view from somewhere else than earth, that we are actually seeing a reflection of what is within us.  Our perspective though organizes it in a way that sometimes seems to be spacially outside of our reach.
I agree

Quote
However, I think that who we are scares us as I believe we are individually infinite and eternal.  We look inside of ourselves and there is no bottom, there is no top, there is just space ... and what seems like darkness.  It seems like an abyss.

What happens to me is that space also disappears "there"

Quote
  And so our protectors come in and create floors and cielings to give us some kind of feeling of stability, so we can walk around and function in our daily lives.  I don't think this is bad, and I don't promote that we dive into ourselves head first without one hand on the sword.

I see, I sometimes tend to forget that sword...it's one of light I guess...

Quote
  But, I do think that we are forced to break the floors and ceilings, whether we would like to or not.

Well I don't agree about the being forced thing, but I think I get what you mean.

Yeah what is on my mind now, I sometimes seem to meet you at this "place", so there is actually no more abyss because you are there...Anyway I am not anymore scared of this abyss though, what still scares me sometimes are some of the people on earth...

Most of the people on this earth  travel on their own path where ever it may lead them.  Yes, I may seem somewhat philosophical now.  People may try to reach out and help, but would their *intentions* be sincere or flawed in some way?  And also, with this being the Internet, what consistutes a *friend* anyhow.  Yes, indeed, that is what is on my mind now......hum...

If I am on my path and it is truly my path it's the best I can do, for myself and for others. Difficulties occur only if I leave my path. There is a profound confidence in me that my path, if it's really and honestly, truly my path, will go well together with other people's paths and we will agree sometime in the same intentions.

Now not yet, since I have been rather "inwards" for quite a while, but perhaps next weekend I might need more, or the weekend after. And in the summer I will go to ride passes in the Alps  8)
