"The past is littered with loss. Each one is a fossil in the folds of our memories, and fossils, although sometimes delicate, are tempting to hold and admire...Memory is a dreamscape, and a dreamscape has no expiration date.It is an eternal present. The dream is all that is behind us, and thus we cant help wanting to go back. The mistake, it seems, it to dwell there. Change in linear time is the one constant truth about the world...Regret of any kind is insidious. It steals from the present. Preserving memory does not steal from the present. Rather, the past, left alone, accumulates to create all that is now."- Martha McPhee

You know you're NOT in New York when...

An older woman, ordering very slowly at a Starbucks in Vancouver, "should I get the large or the medium, oh I don't know, I'm not really sure how thirsty I am.... "

She then turns to the six people waiting online behind her, including your correspondent, and says, "I know I'm going slowly, so you all can go in front of me"

To which everyone else waiting on line behind her says in unison, "no, take your time" and "it's okay, don't worry about it" and "we're not in a rush"

Had the best weekend EVER!!! I forgot how fun just bugging out with no pressure could be. Canada is amazing and we DEFINITLY will go back. But now back to reality, work starts tomorrow. OH WELL. This summer wont be that bad. Actually not at all if this weekend was any indication of what you will bring to my life. okie bye bye gotta go.
