Arizona alphabet

They must've abbreviated us AZ because we have the entire spectrum of weather extremes:  "A"blaze in the Phoenix sun to "Z"ero-degree snow in Flagg.

Bass & beats

If I ever die of a heart attack, I hope it will be from playing my stereo too loud.

—Terri Guillemets

[A journal entry at 15 years old. But oh, how not true anymore! As the years and my concern for actual heart attacks have gradually increased, the volume knob has decreased. Guess I really am maturing. But people just love this quote from back in the day (teenagers, no doubt) so I will leave it here for posterity. —tεᖇᖇ¡·g, 2014]

Life is a dance of balance.
Life is creative falling.
Life is half spent getting back up.
Life is learning to dance with a partner —
and learning to dance without a partner,
and letting go enough to dance in the crowd.
Life is a twirl and a bow.
Life is a freestyle jig.
Life is the best dance you've ever danced.
And Death is your dancing soul returning to the heavens.

—Terri Guillemets

The next day

A relationship will eventually turn love inside out. And the test is whether you can love from both sides.

I'm an insomniacaholic,
If there is such a thing;
Well, I know there is—
I am one, and their king!

Slashing time

Before, comma; Now, dash; Forever, stop.
