Day And Reason # 1...

"This is the beginning of a new day.
You have been given this day to use as you will.
You can waste it or use it for good.
What you do today is important
because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever;
in its place is something that you have left behind...
let it be something good."
- Unknown

That "Certain Someone"
Who Gave You "This Day"
And Every Other Day You've Ever Had
And Ever Will Have
Who Loved You So
That He Sacrificed
A Part Of Himself
- His Only Son -
For YOU.

So That You Might
One Glorious Day
Access The Greatest Banquet Of All
With Him
In The Highest,
He Died
On A Cross
Like A Mere Criminal Of That Era
- He Humiliated Himself So
For YOU.

God Is Life.
God Is Love.
And GOD Is All.
All The Reason You'll Ever Need
To Carry On Living.
Because You Are Loved -
Truly Loved

Day And Reason # 6...

The Wondrous And Rapturous 
Expectation Of A Miracle - 
no matter what the odds!

Day And Reason # 7...

  To try and perpetuate
 prolong, repeat
 that good ol '
 Christmas Spirit
 for the other 364 days...

Day And Reason # 8...

Hold out as long as you can
in case you get to witness another
miraculous birth...!

Day And Reason # 10...

free music
 The sun rising...
 I want to see it again
 And again, and again

 And so do you -
 admit it -

Day And Reason # 13...

When we think we're in trouble
we can always seek solace within!
You don't have to croak to do that, folks!
In fact, it is most fun
to do it alive and kicking
- preferably kicking out of your life
all and any nuisance(s) to be found
soiling it...!
No trouble will be too much for you
with such a luminous attitude!

I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
- Emily Bronte (1818-1848)

Only odd that it is a woman saying it
for manfolk!

Many thanks for that, Emily!
Then again,
guys with girly names
(such as Lindsay,
just for example)
probably need that!


Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Day And Reason # 14...

To enjoy the air we breathe
the drift we feel
the stream at our feet
the glory of nature all around
while the appropriate music plays!

Monday, December 17, 2007

Day And Reason # 15...

 Why - so many interesting encounters to make still!
 We have no right to turn our backs on those
 (nor is it well-advised to do so either!)
 (talking to the bear primarily here -

Day And Reason # 18...

If you're not yet eighteen,
you want to get there - fast!

If you're past that momentous mark,
you wanna feel eighteen again!

If you're twice removed from it,
you're twice as much inclined to!

And if you have an eighteen year-old
reminding you how far removed from it
you really are, nowadays, alas...
Well then you want to stick around
to see that eighteen year-old
grow old and grey too!

And, maybe, thanks in part to you,
make only half as many mistakes as you have!

Day And Reason # 26...

Because there will always be
that the next day will be better
than the last miserable one.

Never lose that


Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Day And Reason # 34...

To come back...

And leave again. 

Make the trip as often as one can. 

For the ones we come after 

And the ones we came for. 


Thursday, November 22, 2007

Day And Reason # 40 ...

You want to indulge
in every slice you get
every chance you get

- and you know it!
I recommend vegetarian, though!

Saturday, November 17, 2007

Day And Reason # 45...

Enjoying the four seasons 
- ad nauseam!

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Day And Reason # 48...

Keeping on trucking, keeping on living
because you just gotta keep on trying, man -
with the hope that, one day,
things might finally go your way
you will finally be handed all the right cards
all the winning conditions will be given to you
- not the other guy, anymore...!

You gotta believe
it can happen!

And it can only happen
if you stick around
(aye, well, being shot repeatedly
is not the best way to ensure that
but allegedly all of those shots
were just superficial wounds
three inches above the heart...
Jones, Solo, Winfield, Fett, Sparrow, QS -
all lousy shots, you know...
One last thing:
visit Cairo sometimes!
You'll love it there!
Bring your own bullets, if you can!)

Monday, November 12, 2007

Day And Reason # 50...

LIFE really starts at 50...?!?
Forget about forty -
'cause, now, time is seriously pressing thee!
It is all happening "up there" anyway -
as they say!
And besides,
"Fabulous And Fifty"
sounds so much better than
"Fabulous And Forty"
- does it not?

Friday, November 09, 2007

Day And Reason # 53...

Because we are here to help -
if we leave too soon,
who's going to help in our place?


Tuesday, October 30, 2007

Day And Reason # 63...

Because sleeping on an idea,
on a dream,
is worth waking up for,
for as long as it might take
- one day, you might see it realized
once you open your eyes!


Monday, October 29, 2007

Day And Reason # 64...

You know how much you enjoy
handling those cute sticks
don't you?

More handling time
will be sooooo good!

You know what they say:
practice makes perfect, yup!

Sunday, October 21, 2007

Day And Reason # 69...

Yes... number


Well, sure, that is a good reason too...
In and by itself...!

Just make sure you're lawfully wedded
(before GOD, not just before man!)
and disease-free
FIRST - eh?


Thursday, October 11, 2007

Day And Reason # 82...

We want to thrive on
so we can fight on, ramble on,
argument and debate
over such "vital" as ''viral'' things as...

whether or not Rush is heavy metal...

whether Hilary is better than Obama

or if Pepsi has topped Coke... or not...

Stuff like that! ;)

There's no end to these sort of debates! 
Make sure your end doesn't come either 
- so that you can partake of them all!

Day And Reason # 85...

You Want To Be Around
Giving Thanks;

Being Privileged Enough To Do Just That
Is Quite Enough In Itself
- Is It Not?

To visit your friends more often...

pain... forgiveness... surrender... chagrin... redemption... 
relief... family... pride... honor... duty...

Day And Reason # 266...

You.ll do anything for those emeralds -
yes, you will.

Even if that means enduring that much longer...!

Day And Reason # 167...


Every extra bit of this
is worth the extra penance time
otherwise known as... life!

More time to learn
the value and significance

Day And Reason # 172...

You want to grab
every opportunity you have
to bring flowers,
uncork a bottle of champagne,
be courteous,
pay a visit
- the works...!!!

No need to bother doing so
after it's too late -
that only happens
in the movies,
right? ;)

Thursday, July 05, 2007

Day And Reason # 180...

Time to show off,
strut your stuff
and bask in the sun
Don't spoil it now
by seeking permanent
not to mention terminal

Juste pour les emmerder,

Day And Reason # 182...

There's a reason that will get to all the boys:
we must continue to live because,
before we cash in all our chips
and get that dead combo deluxe
we gotta do our darndest best
Clint Eastwood impersonation!
And he's surely taking his time
to ride off into the sunset! ;)

Day And Reason # 189...

To kiss

Day And Reason # 190...


free music

We have not enough time
and days to our lives
to find out how many things are written about us
or named after us!
Ah - the wonders that await us!
It's true! ;)

Thursday, June 21, 2007

Day And Reason # 194...

Just to stick it to the huge monopoly guys
If only once - show them who's REALLY boss!
Just once... yeah!

They run the game -
but you outlive them!

Saturday, June 16, 2007

Day And Reason # 199...

Discover Prince!

Stick Around - If Only To Keep On Partying Like It's 1999!
Or 1899, if you're a Republican...
Or 1799, if you're a Democrat!
Or 1699, if you're Amish...
Or 1599, if you're an aristocrat...
Or 1499, if you're a Roman Catholic...
Or 1399, if you're a pestiferous liberal...
Or 1299, if you're an archaic conservative!
Or 1199, if you're an old school traditionalist
Or 1099, if you're a new recruit to Islam!
Or 999 - if you're a true-blue Millennialist
of the first crop!

free music

Day And Reason # 208...

LikeTelevision Embed Movies and TV Shows

free music

You want to endure
and outlast!
YOU, my friend, WANT TO WIN!

And hear the other guy lament...
"you sank my battleship"!

Recreate your own Battle of Midway
today and every day
Turn the tide for yourself and others
Before we're all out of time...!

Not to worry - plenty of time left...!

Saturday, May 26, 2007

Day And Reason # 220...

Getting back in touch with yourself
with your soul
takes longer than previously estimated...

No exiting
before the cycle -and the cleansing-
are complete!

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

Day And Reason # 231...

You have to hang around long enough
And have as many hospital stays/close calls as necessary
In order to ascertain once and for all
one way or the other
if that 1966 publicity campaign made it all up
Or if there really are either doctors like that
or angels like that...!

(Not necessarily angels of death at all -
preferably, angels as they should all be;
that bring life and work miracles!)

I trust that you DO wanna know the answer to this one -
at least as much as you want to know if there is,
say, a Nessie at the bottom of the Loch Ness!
And this whether you are hetero or not,
male or female
just out of curiosity's sake -
you want to know if there really are
docs like that!
You know you do!

(Or... Maidenform Angels?!?)
(Never to be confused with
Victoria's Angels!)

Sunday, May 13, 2007

Day And Reason # 233...

Mother's Day
You were there for the first day - you want to be there every year!
No kid should defy the natural order of things -
and make his or her exit first...
Mothers always understand -
they will look over you as before,
from the other side...

You only have one mother
When you lose her - you gain a guardian angel
Just like Dad's protectorate -
same rules apply!
Kids have only to know their roles!
We don't leave the table too fast
Hence, we don't make our folks miss us either!

Thursday, May 10, 2007

Day And Reason # 146...

One more day to train at controlling your anger: 
takes forever to achieve perfection, 
you know so much...!

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

Day And Reason # 237...

If there are, allegedly, as many as 237 reasons to have SEX...
There certainly must be 365 reasons to just LIVE...!!!
All the more reason indeed to stick around
to count and enumerate them all!
Sure beats counting sheep...! ;)

Wednesday, May 02, 2007

Day And Reason # 244...

To make a WOMAN's point of view
be heard...!

Paraphrasing fully intended

Tuesday, May 01, 2007

Day And Reason # 245...

To make a MAN's point of view
stand up...!

No pun intended...!

and one better sleep on it often too!

Sunday, April 22, 2007

Day And Reason # 277...

Just to...
Go somewhere remote and isolated...
and enjoy the silence!

It really does a body good
Does a mind and a soul good too!
Test it sometime...
How about right now?
(Testing the YouTube screen above can wait!)

(Test 2 of 2: this one will *really* be conclusive!)

Day And Reason # 32...

that we realize

Day And Reason # 263...

You live - and you learn!
You crave learning - admit it!
And so the path is clear:
you have to carry on living
in order to carry on learning - duh!

Just stop and think of all the things you will be learning

You'll learn many wondrous things
You'll learn the origins of many withered old beliefs!

You'll learn the folly of certain superstitions, for instance...
Such as... Friday the 13th!

Just in case, though - steer clear and stay out of the way
of all black cats, ladders and Vampirellas...!


Thursday, April 12, 2007

Aww - all those phone calls to make

So little time to make them, as it is...!

The Easter Bunny Hates You 364 days out of 365

(Well, he would, if he existed at all, that is...!)
(We eat his carrots, steal his eggs and squash them - take away his chocolate to give it to undeserving spoiled rotten brats...! Not to mention all the polluting of his natural habitat and environment overall that we are alleged to be guilty of, each and every single one of us...!)
(And, no - by "habitat" I do not mean the shopping mall!)

So, if nothing else, we have to live in order to fight back here...!
A good egghead lawyer and lots of egg nog is advised..

Saturday, April 07, 2007

Day And Reason # 269...

You enjoy watching
Or being watched

Logically - you have to keep your eyes open for that!

Hence - you gotta live on! ;)
Good enough reason for ya - no?

Friday, April 06, 2007

Day And Reason # 270...

TTaTake your time putting some order in your papers, files, mementos, documents, data...

Don't leave life before tidying up!

(Hey - cleanliness is next to godliness, right?
Make that angeldom, really...
Or actually - saintliness is tops for us, really -
to shoot for as to hope to be able to achieve!
But that is another story...!)

Thursday, April 05, 2007

Day And Reason # 271...

Perennial favorites:

Versing nostalgic - romantic - sentimental...!

Always good reasons to stick around...!

(Oftentimes it precipitates hasty departures
and sudden exits - re: Romeo & Juliet
But there is no need to go that far -
in-laws willing...?!?)

Wednesday, April 04, 2007

Day And Reason # 272...

Why be in a hurry to lie down on your back
(In a casket - not for THAT...!)

When such an exquisite time can be found
lying on your tummy - side by side, like THIS...?
