    ...ok, so im not really one for holidays, they seem way overly hallmarkie and completely misguided, but considering the times, and the fact that thanksgiving is the least of the corporate holidays, i thought it might be a good time to just give a shout to those aspects of our lives, big or small, that help us roll outta bed in the morning or make this life worth living...i dont do it enough myself....

    my fam
    my health, the fact that all my senses are still intact
    hanging with my friends, the cyberspace ones included
    the fact i have a roof over my head and food in my gut
    clothes on myback and shoes on my feet
    sunsets and sunrises
    changing seasons
    women, esp the one im dating
    stars and shooting ones
    that ive found "god" on my own terms
    my mind, although sometimes it plays tricks on me
    my experiences that have led me to this point in my life
    all the aspects of life that continually amaze me, my child like eyes
    full moons and slim crescent ones too
    the poetry in the day to day
    limitless potential
    long conversations, long walks to nowhere
    the desire and strength to deconstruct my ego and rebuild how i want to
    the blue in the sky
    the green in the grass
    children on playgrounds
    a cup of coffee and a cigarette in the cold morning air
    my college degree, which most of the time i consider frivolous anyhow
    that although kyle died in a car accident, adam managed to walk away
    that i got to be a friend/ a roomate/ and just simple experienced casey before he died this year in a car accident also
    that im alive and all the things that help me recognize that i am
    finding a spray can and wondering what it could do

    and last but not least:
    to typing graffiti into yahoo search and it coming back with 12 oz prophet, believe me ive seen and learned so much in such a short time more then i ever coulda without it...and to the heads on this board, you all know who you are....thanks.....

    I think you covered it all. I couldn't really think of anything that you didn't already have on your list. Nicely put.
