I couldn't even play the drums right -
Brian had to show me.

spark come from? Not his subjects or anything,
but his spark.
What makes it so great for me is that I really don't know.
There's a mystery behind Brian, even to me.

I was the troublemaker.
Brian got great grades and Carl got the kind of grades I did.

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Not chance of birth or place has made us friends,
Being oftentimes of different tongues and nations,
But the endeavor for the selfsame ends,
With the same hopes, and fears, and aspirations.

irreplaceable made by God,
