"May the best you have ever seen be the worst you will ever see.
May the mouse never leave your grain store with a tear drop in its eye.
May you always stay hale and hearty until you are old enough to die.
May you still be as happy as I always wish you to be."

Norman Doidge- The Brain That Changes Itself

"An astonishing new science called neuroplasticity is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Norman Doidge, M.D., traveled the country to meet both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they've transformed; people whose mental limitations or brain damage were seen as unalterable. We see a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, blind people who learn to see, learning disorders cured, IQs raised, aging brains rejuvenated, stroke patients learning to speak, children with cerebral palsy learning to move with more grace, depression and anxiety disorders successfully treated, and lifelong character traits changed. Using these marvelous stories to probe mysteries of the body, emotion, love, sex, culture, and education, Dr. Doidge has written an immensely moving, inspiring book that will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential."

in the past 3 to 5 years I have lost a growing amount of it due to suicide, drug abuse, or simply
strange yet fatal circumstance. although in my 20 plus years preceding the frequency of unwanted death
remained minimal. life seems to speed up as a spiral...time being only some conjecture that gains momentum
exponentially. my point with all this is that with my current realization that time dwindles ever rapidly (especially in our relative perceptions) i have learned to truly appreciate those that have and will continue to have a positive impact upon my daily life. so, to all friends and family reading this that i may not speak to on a regualr basis know that you are so very loved.
