Reality Check


Every time we start thinking we're the center of the universe, the universe turns around and says with a slightly distracted air, "I'm sorry, what'd you say your name was again?"

  1. So true! We are not the center of the universe (but our ego's would say otherwise!).

    And I LOVE this color - it's the color of the walls of our front room here at work. We get lots of daylight & the walls just seem to glow!

  10. I love being absorbed in my writing world, imagining charcaters, their shenanigans and the better life they might bring me, then get humbled immediately jumping into my truck with its cracked windshield, on my way to work like the rest of the world

  12. Oh, much needed these days. We are not as important as we'd like to think, nor more important than the person next to us.

  15. Jaime,
    If i said the picture is amazing....it would be an understatement.

    Sometimes,i wish i could sit behind your eyes and watch the world, the undoing of colours,catch the sun in between my fingers the way you do....

    Well,i don't know if i am the centre of the universe though i know where's the centre of my universe is ....

    ;)

    love u
