A man was given the most beautiful scarf. He absolutely loved it. But, he didn't want it to get messed up during daily activities so he put it away in storage for special occasions only. And instead, he went shopping for a inexpensive scarf that he could wear on a more daily basis. In the process of doing this, his beautiful scarf was misplaced and lost. The moral of the story? Wear your good things now. Don't keep them locked up for later. Live in the moment. -Oprah

march on

today is the happiest of days for me. it is march 1st. i have survived my fourth winter in the midwest. it is still rather chilly (a high of 40 is cause for me to jump with joy), and i have not seen the last of snow, but the end is in sight. in just a matter of time, winter will be a blur and i will be in love with chicago's weather, and thankful for the wind off the lake that makes for a lovely summer.

it's crazy to think that come may, i will have spent as much time in the windy city as i did in my beloved friendly city. time flies.
