A night with Roger Federer and friends

A night with Roger Federer and friends



Maybe I will be able to watch on Roger's YouTube channel?

I think I have perfected my single's profile..."let's make this simple"

Sometimes it seems like I wouldn't know a realistic expectation if it bit me....but I know in my heart faith is the answer for me. I like to dream and plan. I expect fun wonderful things to happen in my life all the time, and fun and wonderful things have happened in my life all the time. It's nice to feel special. Understood. I am a strange mix of extreme independence yet being joined at the hip is what it's about for a long term relationship...go figure...it takes good communication and compassion to be around me for very long. I have diverse interests and I love to talk about anything or everything...especially if I know little or nothing about it...I love Google/Yahoo searches. I am a college graduate, a loving mother, and I love my real estate. I enjoy teaching and I am a life long learner Kindness and intelligence go a long way with me... I am looking for a nice man for good company. I love talking and sharing experiences. I love to explore new places. I have traveled to visit large cities. I love foreign languages and I read and understand a couple better than I speak them. I would love to go to Europe and Asia and Latin America for the ATP/WTA tour for tennis. They play in great cities. It is my intention to be in a committed loving relationship by Valentine's Day 2014....or something better...like sooner.

#DaveMatthewsBand - 02 - #TwoStep - Live 07-24-1999



I do not know how old Dave Matthews is in this picture or at this time.  I have a karaoke fantasy of singing a duet with Dave.  I often choose the versions of his songs that keep his voice in and sing along when I go to karaoke.

#TheCure Live at #Pantages, #Primary 23Nov2011, #ReflectionsTour

Almost 2 years ago...I was up a little higher but generally the same vantage point.

2005 Tony and Friends Fitness Camp Giant Post-It

I'm pretty sure it was 2005, but it could have been 2006. Traci Morrow wrote out all of these colorful giant post-its. She and Tony are a dynamic duo. Both weekends were fabulous...Putting the post back up on the wall...eight years later...wow...eight years already!! But it's still the same message on my workouts...still loving p90x...doing the hybrid with Insanity...and playing tennis of course.

ATP World Tour Fan...ME...Riding High On the End of Year Results with the #Underdog.

Everybody who follows the ATP World Tour will remember this year as the year Rafael Nadal won the comeback of the year award and earned the year end #1 ranking. Rafa is amazing! This time last year most people would have said we miss him but we won't be surprised if Rafa doesn't come back. That is a huge story. I am now a big Stan Wawrinka fan. Not because he is such a shining star. He sparkled at the Australian Open back in January. I tend to follow a lot of my tennis idols on Twitter and Facebook. I actually write them fan mail all the time. I am floored at becoming a Stan fan at the precise moment he became the miracle of the year. Rafa recovered...Stan has transformed... I call him an underdog and he is by every definition of the word THE UNDERDOG in the final four this year at the ATP World Tour End of Year Championship. Back in January I told Stan I was rooting for him to make it to the final top eight players for the End of Year Championship. And a few days ago when he qualified in Paris I was mildly surprised...BUT NOW HE IS IN THE SEMI-FINALS. I don't care who you are this is amazing. He is a real threat to all three players. All of them are jaded...exhausted...and pumped up to win. It's anybody's trophy. I'm rooting for Rafa or Stan because this is one title that has eluded Rafa and it is just an amazing opportunity for Stan...and either one of them just might do it!

Bill Evans Quintet 1962 ~ Fun Ride (+playlist)

 
I was in my mommy's tummy when this was recorded.  My dad loved Bill Evan's music.  I wonder if he had this song?  He had a lot of jazz music like this.

Photos from USOpen TONIGHT

http://www.usopen.org/en_US/news/galleries/2013-09-02/201309031378172965694.html?promo=right_rail Philip Kohlschrieiber played out of his comfort zone the first set. He was better than Nadal. Then reality struck and he was back to his normal self and Rafa ran him over. Milos had the crowd support...I was a little embarrassed as an American...IT'S NOT A NFL GAME PEOPLE!!! SHHHHHHH!!!!!!! It must have been so hot and humid after the 4 hour rain delay...Richard looks like he just got out of the pool and hit this serve!

The Cure - Disintegration (Full Album) 1989

Yesterday I felt so old...I thought that I would die.

When I surrender to the point of view of others am I being brave or just being stupid?  Everyday I lose a little part of myself surrendering to the wholeness of who I think I ought to be or what I thought was supposed to be.  Be who you are at all times.  Why?  What is the alternative?  Maybe I am better at lying than I thought.  All I have is my imagination.  Merging my dreams to the image of others is not reality.  Looking outside of where I am is how I have been living.  Pulling weeds in the backyard would make all the difference...but still I stare out an enjoy the weeds...but it is a shame that I would see in the eyes of others.  The illusion is just as good as the weeds.  The work would be fun...not working on it is just as fun.  And so I sit.  Thinking.  Remembering.  feeliing.  And I don't know when...it could be today..I will pull one weed and then it will make sense to pick the one next to it and a couple hours later it will all be transformed.  Until the weeds grow back or I keep planting the new plot.

How the end always ends....Why love?

Don't hold your breath when you are working hard.  Your brain won't like it at all.  What little intelligence you have in love and war will desert you.  It tastes like defeat.  Life is tragic...that is the definition of tragedy. The end is inevitable.  Death.  What happens in between days?  Life, breath, love, happiness.  Work, study, pray.  The rules of life are important.  It's called communication.  Form, substance, meaning.  Father, Son, Holy Spirit.  Symbol.  Truth.  Delusion.  Wonder.  Lust.  The things that make life exciting are what we call what is worth living for.  Don't you suppose?  Nothing is as good as a good list.  When it comes down to it that is all there is.  Lists or listless  there is an amount.  A measure even if it is infinity. Boils down to love.
