There is no substitute for enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can make up for many deficiencies.

this makes me a selfish bastard…i know…

“To imagine what it might be like to be a mother or a father to our children is not much different to imagining what it might be like to live in California. We are likely to focus more of our attention on the good things about being a parent and less so on the bad things about being a parent, perhaps because of the belief that children bring happiness. What this theory is implying is that we are likely to become happier with our life – and this will be much more so than usual because of the focusing illusion – the moment we find out we are about to become a parent, which could be up to nine months before the birth of our child. Reality (e.g. more time spent changing dirty nappies than seeing them smile for the first time) will likely kick in, however, almost as soon as we or our partner give birth to our child, which will lead to a considerable drop in well-being afterwards.”

i learned something today…

there are only 850 words that make up the basis of basic english…somehow…i already knew that…

what i learned was…the term basic english…is also an official title for…one of the many languages people purposefully created…as opposed to the living languages…that constantly evolve…on our tongues…and in our ears…

now i’ve heard of esperanto…but…i knew nothing about it…especially…that it’s part ofover 100 years of human effort to create…something like a universal language…this new information…fascinates me…

digging a little deeper…i discover this effort is not limited to business and politics…but also includes…more imaginativeendeavors

somewhere down the line…i can see myself really diving…furthur…into this subject…
