Life Is a Gift

"There was a blind girl [or so the story goes] who hated herself because of her blindness. Not only did she hate herself but she hated everyone else, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.

"One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see everything—including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her that simply said, 'Just take care of my eyes dear.'

How to take time off.

Two factory workers were talking. "I think I'll take some time off from work." said the man.

"How do you think you'll do that?" said his workmate.

He proceeded to show him ... by climbing up to the rafters, and hanging upside down.

The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked him what on earth he was doing?

"I'm a light bulb," answered the guy.

"I think you need some time off," said the boss.

So, the man jumped down and walked out of the factory. His workmate began walking out, too.

The boss asked him where did he think he was going? He answered, "Home, I can't work in the dark."

Kenny G

大学のコンサートシリーズでKenny Gを見た。カリフォルニア在住で、中西部は寒いとぼやいていたが、外は雪で銀世界。前半はカリフォルニアのビーチで、夕日でも眺めながら聞きたいような曲がならんだが、中盤ではクリスマスソング。曲の間にはジョークやサックスのブレススタッキングなどのパフォーマンスを挟み、かなり楽しめた。

彼は昔の友人の高校の同級生で、キーボード奏者も高校生のときから一緒に演奏していたと聞きちょっとびっくり。
今は昔ほど売れていないようで、米国の中小都市を回っているようである。

今週のquote

週末にDVDでマイケルムーアのSICKOをみたが、FAHRENHEIT 9/11に較べるとあまりパンチが少なかった。基本的にはヘルスケアに関しては、資本主義の原理にもとづいた利益を追求する企業をいれると、多くの悲惨な例が出てくるということはよく理解できるが、カナダ、英国、フランスなど国民皆保険がすでに行われている国の医療の長所ばかりが強調されすぎて、すこしバランスを欠いているような気がした。となりの芝はいつも自分のより綺麗にみえるものなのである。米国の医療システムに改善の余地があるのはいわずもがなではあるが、、、

Everybody has times when things go wrong. But when troubles come, it's not so much what happens to us, but how we react to it that counts the most. Troubles destroy some people. Others become stronger. The difference lies in our attitude, being realistic about and accepting what has happened, and what we do about resolving our situation.

Developing a Healthy Self-Image

First, we need to be real. Many of us are afraid that if we are known as we really are, we won't be liked, so we pretend to be something we are not. People may like the mask or the false front or happy face we wear, but this will never make us feel loved because what they like is not the real us. We can only be loved to the degree that we allow ourselves to be known for who we are.
