"Men give up property, freedom and even life before they will have the obligation laid on them." - Zora Neale Hurston

"I Won't Give Up"

When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No: I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not, and who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up, still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

The only jointless bone in the body is in your throat.

Now its her turn to roll her eyes. xD 

Me: *carrying a baby* See? The baby doesn't mind my stubble. Why should you mind?

Her: *rolls eyes*

Penguins can jump 6 feet.

And she says the sea-horse on her t-shirt, is called a zebra. *rolls eyes*

Armadillos have four babies at a time, and they are always all the same sex.

Sometimes, it's really amazing what technology can do these days. 

One generation ago, one could only hear a baby's heart beat through a stethescope. Nothing more.

Now, we have ultrasound scans which shows us clearly what the baby is doing in the womb. 

We are able to measure the skin thickness behind the neck, and correlate it for risk of autism. 

We are also able to scan the baby in detail, for any deformities to the limbs and organs. 

Cord blood can be extracted during delivery, and preserved for stem cells. 

Who knows what else the future will bring?

Sometimes what is, just is. An accident, a cruel twist of fate, a conjunction of forces that could not have been anticipated.

Listening to the speaker talk about the different types of soil, clay and sand, reminded me of my thesis back in my university days.

Reminiscing about the research I did, I can't help but wonder how much I would do different now, with the knowledge I currently have.

Hope is a waking dream. - Aristotle

"To any intelligent being, there is no emotion more important than hope.

Individually or collectively, we must hope that the future will be better than the last, that our offspring, and theirs after them, will be a bit closer to an ideal society, whatever our perception of that might be."

- Drizzt Do'Urden

Well done is better than well said.

My two ever-lasting impressions of Paris:

The crisp, warm smell of bread


The mad, mad, mad traffic conditions

The pastries and bread in Paris, are just heavenly. Their enticing smells are never more than one or two streets away, as you stroll down the pavement.

Of course, if your legs can manage it, walking is far more preferable than braving the crazy, disorganized traffic mess that is Paris. You really need skills to drive and wind your way through the chaos of vehicles and blaring horns.
