Had a FANTASTIC weekend away in Toronto to visit Chris and Theressa!  It was so good to see Chris, meet Theressa, go to Toronto and have a short getaway from real life for the weekend.

To both of you: thank you SO much!  I can't wait to see you again (hopefully) in December!

How do you know?

How do you know Christmas is on it's way?
Starbucks Eggnog Latte's!

They are back and I love them! Stopped this morning for one before work, and it made my day:)

Lest we forget.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

— Lt.-Col. John McCrae

So one day you get news.  You find out that you are dying and there isn't anything that can be done. 

Is this something you would choose to find out or would you rather just go about life day to day, night to night? 

I’ve been thinking about it for some time now.  It’s a tough call.  I think though that I would rather go on not knowing.  So I would know that all the decisions I made were true to who I am, rather than simply because I’m scared or that I am running out of time on this earth.  Do and speak because that is how I feel, I believe that it’s important.  If I am feeling something about my life, about someone in my life I think that honesty is the best policy.  They need to know.  The change needs to be made.  I shouldn’t wait until I find out that I’m running out of time in order to make these things known, admit that a mistake was made, make amends, be true to myself. 

Never wait. 

Would you want to know – do tell…

I am ABSOLUTELY GIDDY at the thought of seeing two full orchestras perform on stage together at the same time! I know that makes me a total music geek, but I am.

And tonight - I'm going. It's going to be amazing!!! (if only I could somehow be performing with them...)

Mmmm. David Usher. Who doesn't like David Usher?

Crash Parallel opened for him and they were surprisingly good. I know that sounds horrible, but so often opening bands are a disappointment. Thankfully they were not:)

A great way to start off a week that wasn't so great - even for a Monday.
