Just a Moody Blues quote to help decorate this thread (in color)...

After he had journeyed
And his feet were sore
And he was tired
He came upon an orange grove
And he rested

And he lay in the cool
And while he rested
He took to himself an orange
And tasted it
And it was good

And he felt the earth to his spine
And he asked
And he saw the tree above him
And the stars
And the veins in the leaf
And the light
And the balance

And he saw magnificent perfection
Whereon, he thought of himself in balance
And he knew he was

ok, FTWCATWD (for those who care and those who don't)...
the store that employs me is moving/almost moved. don't panic! it is right around the corner from the "old" store.
i have been there the past 2 days (new store), helping with the cleaning.
the new store opens july 12th.
98% of my co-workers do not know if they are going there... or where they will end up.
i know i will be working at the new store. i was told so - a few times - straight from big cheese horses mouths.
i guess i am excited ---
i know i am nervous.

1. this new place is JI GAN TICK/totally not what i am use to.
2. that whole change thing... just... not good at it.
3. not real sure what i'll be doing (probably the same thing/*fingers crossed*).
4. new bosses/managers.
5. see #2. yes. see it... again.

so, that is where i am... emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically, indubitably.




FTWCATWD.

Do you only collect crystalline scepters? Sure, the wooden ones make you look like a Druid, but yer not worried about breakin em all the time.

Oh, this too...

Consider detaching spiritually and at least somewhat emotionally. It's just a store, man. Isn't it?

see now, i believe that most puppies ARE really cute...
where as most human babies look like stewed tomatoes/waterlogged and shrunken troglodytes.
