Dear God #1.

(I shall be 40 on the 23rd of this month.  On the same night Rufus Wainwright is playing in Bristol.  I found out today that the tickets are sold out.  Which inspired this post….)

Dear God,

I don’t know who You are.  I don’t know what You want.  If You are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money.  But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career.  Skills that make me a nightmare for people like You.  If You get me tickets for the Rufus gig in Bristol on the 23rd, that’ll be the end of it.  I will not look for You, I will not pursue You.  But if You don’t, I will look for You, I will find You, and I will fucking kill You.

Quote Of The Month, September 2012

I haven’t a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming petty vices whatsoever.”
Mark Twain.

Good Old Bob Marley….

I came across a quote by Bob Marley the other day which read –

“If she’s amazing, she won’t be easy.  If she’s easy, she won’t be amazing.  If she’s worth it, you won’t give up.  If you give up, you’re not worthy. … Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.”

For too long now I have been berating myself over the failures of my love life.  But no more.  All I have to do is change the ‘she’ to a ‘he’ in that Marley quote and I see things a little bit differently –

If he’s amazing, he won’t be easy.  If he’s easy, he won’t be amazing.  If he’s worth it, you won’t give up.  If you give up, you’re not worthy. … Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.

I forget sometimes that I am a worthwhile human being too.  From now on the only ones I will ‘suffer for’ are the ones that ‘won’t give up’.  Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I’m now starting to feel sorry for those who missed out on me.  😀  Funny how a wee quote can change yer mindset…..
