CARPE DIEM, BABY!

OK I am feeling good! I mean charging up the hill GOOD! I am in my zone. I am making some moves and casting my net out in to the wide waters! Baby, I am fearless!

So I am feeling these quotes today because life is short. I have seen and experienced too much bad shit. I prefer the good stuff. I prefer the happiness factor, the pleasure principle...LOVE!
