what better time to contemplate love than a friday?

note: {the quote} i first saw this via a couple featured on either once wed or 100 layer cake but now for the life of me i can't remember which one. i am passing it on to you via them and many others. {as for the video} i really just want to share the song (beauty by the shivers)and this was the least distracting video i could find. so turn it up and go about cleaning your room or surfing elsewhere. my roommate amanda just introduced me to it and now i have it on continuous play. i cannot stop. seriously.

somehow this pairing of quote and song just makes sense to me.

ove is the ultimate outlaw.
it just won't adhere to any rules.
the most any of us can do is sign
on as its accomplice. instead of vowing
to honor and obey, maybe we should
swear to aid and abet. that would
mean that security is out of the
question. the words make and
stay become inappropriate.
my love for you has no strings
attached. i love you for free.

one of my all time favorite quotes. it was one of our wedding readings :)

i have a feeling this song will be on repeat at my house as well.

that really is a nice pairing. i'm listening to the song over and over as i try to write the last of these hellish overdue grad papers, and it's making me happy and calm.

it's so nice to think (and read and listen) about love.

best, best, best of luck to you with all you have going on. i'm not sure yet when our utah trip will be but i'll let you know.

tom robbins said a lot of great things... just thought you might like this:
So you think that you're a failure, do you? Well, you probably are. What's wrong with that? In the first place, if you've any sense at all you must have learned by now that we pay just as dearly for our triumphs as we do for our defeats. Go ahead and fail. But fail with wit, fail with grace, fail with style. A mediocre failure is as insufferable as a mediocre success.
