        "I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."

Jack London
American Author 


Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. All claimed that they were the best. The most important. The most useful. The most beautiful. The favorite.

Green said:
"Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."

Blue interrupted:
"You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

Yellow chuckled:
"You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."

Orange started next to blow her trumpet:
"I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and papayas. I don't hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."

Red could stand it no longer he shouted out:
"I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life's blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."

Purple rose up to his full height:
He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: "I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me! They listen and obey."

Finally Indigo spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination: "Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."

And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening, thunder rolled and boomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak:
"You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different? Join hands with one another and come to me."

Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined

The rain continued:
"From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace. The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow." And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in the sky, to let us remember to appreciate one another.


*grins sweetly as she reaches to clutch her Masters hand, turning to look at each of her very special friends, then looking back up to her Master and smiles*

Its been a good year.  Its been a very good year.  i have laughed...cried...fought...loved... i have lived.  Each of Y/you contributed to that time i cherish so much.  From very steamy chat scenes to quiet whispers in IM, each of Y/you gave me a very special gift that i will forever cherish and adore.  Even in the bad times, i felt alive, wanted, needed.

*looking up at her Master, her tiny hand hovering over His knee, softly patting His thigh before quickly climbing into His lap, leaning to nuzzle His jaw, her little hand holding His face as she smiles into His eyes*

Thank You, for such a wonderful lifetime.  The trips, the adventures, the music and laughter, sharing Your tears and sorrow.  Nothing was ever off limits to me...nothing.  i am never alone.  You will never be alone Dearest.  Remember me when it snows, the soft flakes falling on the trees out front.. the ones You let me watch from Your window when i didn't get my white Christmas here.  Remember me in the breakfast, eaten late at night when You come in from the cold... in the aigs!  *grins*  Remember me in the singing whine of the trains call... O/our connection on so many sleepless night.  The bottle of wine we shared with T.  The coffee urn that called to me as i listened to the water run, the sounds of You loading the dishwasher... the sweet sweet sound of You snoring as You held me, waking .. i would hear that sound, smile... nuzzles my pillow and drift back off in Your arms. 

i love You, i could never do any less than love You... there was never an Option.

Forever Yours, Always devoted, Always adored, For a Lifetime...
