You know that moment when you first strike a match against the box, and the flame bursts up into this big radiant glow, for a split second, and then dies down to a reasonable size? Wouldn’t it be great if more things in life would be like that moment of radiant glory, and less like the mundane spark that stays there? It reminds me so much of relationships I see so many people get in to. At first, its so amazing its practically blinding, just like that first moment of fire.. but then it seems to die down when things become too familiar. That magical moment is gone.. and without blowing a little wind onto the fire, its hard to get back. Wouldnt it be great to find someone that kept you in that moment? Where every moment together was as spectacular as the first? There are so many people that I just seem to become disenchanted with the more I learn about them, but then, there are those few who continue to fascinate me, and amaze me even more every day.

As I’ve said so many times, at the risk of being highly repetitive, I cant wait for spring. I want to be able to sit on my back porch late at night and look at the stars without freezing to death in the process. I want to sit barefoot with my feet in the grass and watch the world go by. I want to step outside and be greeted by the surreal glow of hundreds of lightning bugs around me. Or is that fall? Oh well, does it matter?
