Just a few more things while I'm wading through everything. Then I'll post pictures and all about the trip.

FYI: JFS = grrrrr!~!!!!!!

If you remember, before vacation, I won a little essay contest. When I got back from vacation, I had a box of books: my prize!!! These are the books I got: The Center of the World by Andreas Steinhofel, The Full Spectrum edited by David Levithan and Billy Merrell, The God Box by Alex Sanchez, The Straight Road to Kylie by Nico Medina, Rainbow High by Alex Sanchez, The Real Life Channel by Robert A. Black, Hero by Perry Moore, Country Girl, City Girl by Lisa Jahn-Clough, and Wide Awake by David Levithan. I'm so excited to read these, esp. since [ profile] gwynraven has been reviewing and recommending many of these in her blog.

"We're damaged people praying for something that doesn't come from somewhere deep inside us Depraved souls trusting in the one thing, the one thing, this life has not denied us" - Depeche Mode

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. -- George Eliot

For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. -- Martin Luther

Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space. -- Ansel Adams

"You feel the call. That's the important thing. Now answer it as fully as you can. Take the risk to let all that is in you, out. Escape into the open." --Elizabeth Berg, Escaping into the Open

"I both love deadlines and believe they are absolutely necessary. Even when given a deadline, or told by an editor that 'there's no rush,' I'll create my own deadline. As a matter of fact, creating a deadline in advance of the actual also helps out the editor and publication just in case there's a rewrite involved. If there isn't, you are the writer who turned in a fantastic piece before deadline." --Steve Sears

We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run. -Roy Amara, engineer, futurist (b. 1925)
