"There are two kinds of people. One kind, you can just tell by looking at them at what point they congealed into their final selves. It might be a very nice self, but you know you can expect no more surprises from it. Whereas, the other kind keep moving, changing… They are fluid. They keep moving forward and making new trysts with life, and the motion of it keeps them young. In my opinion, they are the only people who are still alive. You must be constantly on your guard against congealing."

 Gail Godwin

"She was honey and milk.
Freedom sprang from her footsteps as her gaze fell upon only the most beautiful things.
There was no greater compliment than her attention.
She responded as if I was the only proper noun with which to verb;
and if I said it, it was certainly the truth.
If I valued it, it was the most important of all things.
She made me matter to myself,
and by the example of her easy-going Grace, I decided to choose to be lovely."

Turquoise water dragon is the year of 2012 — it will be a “Yang” Water Dragon (not Yin) — starts January 23, 2012, and ends February 9, 2013, according to the lunar calendar. A Yang Water Dragon is full of possibilities — it can go anywhere in a positive sense. It has no bounds. Chinese calligraphy: (wording) Dragon, 龍. Sumi ink and acrylic color on rice paper.
