Being Alive

People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I think that what we're really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.

I love this quote, too. It is so fitting that you posted this, Trev, because it expresses something I often feel in your writing - that sweet joy of just being alive.

What is the significance of the Tara Lipinski pic? Sorry, I am easily distracted this soon after the day's first coffee.

Plus, Tara Lipinski is hot.

Haha, I don't think it's Tara Lipinski, Jax. I was just wanting to accompany the quote with a picture of someone displaying joy or happiness.

But now that you mention it...

I think she looks a little more like Chelsea Clinton.
