These things are good: Ice cream and cake, a ride on a harley, seeing monkeys in the trees, the rain on my tongue and the sun shining on my face. These things are a drag: dust in my hair, holes in my shoes, no money in my pocket, and the sun shining on my face." -Rocky Dennis, The Mask 1985
I love this quote...it reminds me that things are more than one dimension. Even things that make us happy or sad. It is all perspective. I am trying to change my perspective on things in my life, and trying to remember that even the happy has sadness somewhere and even sadness has happiness somewhere. If I ever master it, well, I'll be a genius-- more of one than I already am! Ha,ha!!
But it does remind me of living in the desert, I mean look at this picture I took, it is so beautiful isn't it? But, it also has 115° weather, and it's in the middle of no where, no getting to a store or movie theater or whatever, for an hour, and wind like hurricane weather frequently. But if you want that view, you can't get it anywhere else!
So... I guess we have to learn to take the good with the bad, instead of the good or the bad.
