I laugh at silly jokes and I undertake new adventures with a child-like wonder. I sometimes over-analyze things, but I also have the ability to overcome such paralysis. I am always trying to learn how to love more -- and I hope that shows in how I live the one life that has been given to me from Above.
Just read the story about Liu Yan in the New York Times (4/19/2009). Ms. Yan was China's No. 1 dancer, and was practicing for a magnificent solo dance performance for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing when she "leapt toward a moving stage that malfunctioned, causing her to fall into a deep shaft and crash against a steel rod". Reminds me how fragile life can be, that it can change from one moment to the next... Certainly makes one ponder more deeply... the article ends with hope -- Ms. Yan has not given up on her condition, despite doctors saying her situation is hopeless... http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/19/arts/dance/19barb.html?th&emc=th
