funday quote

I'm sorry I've been slacking on the funday quotes... but here's a good one. I love it.

And I find it especially fitting because last night I stayed up with a good friend talking about life (as we tend to do) until the early hours of morning.  We talked about our idols, created a twitter (even though I haven't quite figured it out), and dreamed about our lives and what we can/want to do with them.  I always feel so inspired after our big picture/life convos.
And then tonight we had some more friends over for dinner/catch-up, sharing stories from around the world, literally.  My favorite cooking buddy, Bozz came over to help make dinner (like she did this night) and get excited about things like 23 feet, raw food, art projects, and farmer's markets–things I can enthusiastically share with few people.
So, enjoy...!

i love this book/movie so much! it makes me cry...

"Some people do not have to search -
They find their niche early in life and rest there,
seemingly contented and resigned.
they do not seem to ask much of life,
sometimes they do not seem to take it seriously.
At times I envy them, but usually I do not understand them.
Seldom do they understand me.
I am one of the searchers.
there are, I believe, millions of us.
We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content.
We continue to explore life,
hoping to uncover its ultimate secret.
We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand.
We like to walk along the beach -
We are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power,
its unceasing motion,
its mystery and unspeakable beauty.
We like forests and mountains,
deserts and hidden rivers,
and the lonely cities as well.
Our sadness is as much a part of our lives
as is our laughter.
to share our sadness with one we love is perhaps
as great a joy as we can know —
unless it be to share our laughter.
We searchers are ambitious only for life itself,
for everything beautiful it can provide.
Most of all we want to love and be loved.
We want to live in a relationship that
will not impede our wandering,
nor prevent our search,
nor lock us in prison walls;
that will take us for what little we have to give.
We do not want to prove ourselves to another
or to compete for love.
We are wanderers, dreamers and lovers –
lonely men and women who dare to ask of life
everything good and beautiful."

-James Kavanaugh

I think I am one of these people...
