true friendship (a quote by David Dark)

This may be my favourite quote by David... at least at this moment it certainly hits home and "names" it pretty accurately. Rejection is almost universally one of our greatest fears, one of our greatest hurts, and one of our greatest sins.
(I'm modifying this slightly into the present tense)

"No so-called friendship that requires the denying of another friendship can be worthy of the name, and any joy that requires the exclusion of a peer will be forever illegitimate."
-David Dark (Everyday Apocalyptic)

David has so many brilliant quotes. I could write a blog a day of all the great ones in "The Sacredness of Questioning Everything."

I would love to see a list of your favorite books and music from the past year.

haven't done a lot of reading this past year, but 1984 was my favourite read of the year, by far. Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was way up there, along with the Tao Teh Ching. haven't finished David's book yet (only 100 pages into it), but I do love it.

I'd have to think about a music list, but my favourite CD of the year was Julie Lee's Will There Really Be A Morning? I thought Mindy Smith's CD was going to give her more a run for the money, but I can't say I like the "radio friendly" pop watering-down direction she's taken on the new CD. more to come...
