Writer's Block: Take Two
In the next life, who or what do you think you’ll be reincarnated into?


I think I will be a tree.
- How about you?

Litany of loss
I will lose.
As much as I hate losing
As much as I seek to win,
I will lose,
Losing is my path, my gateway.
It is my method, my clothing, my skin.
I will drink my losses like coffee.
I will eat my losses like peas and carrots.
I cannot win without losing first, and after I win, I'll lose again as sure as night follows day,
And still, no matter how much I play, I cannot lose as much as the world’s best players have lost.
Perhaps I lose because my opponents are better.
Perhaps I lose because there is more to learn.
Perhaps I lose because I am human…
But most of all, I lose because I choose to play.
I have chosen my path.
I cannot lose.

short hello
Hi!
So much to do... and so little time!

I'm looking forward to seeing my friend from New Zealand and I hope to get up to Santa Barbara to see my friend from Chicago and also attend the US Go Congress!

What are your plans for the next week or two?

Please read this!
End Child Trafficking World-Wide!
Please sign the e-petition:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/780/330/342/

The text below is from the above web-site.

Target: Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon
Sponsored by: Care2.com
Child trafficking can begin something like this: a stranger visits a village and offers housing and a good-paying job in the city. In an effort to support his or her family, the child leaves and promises to send money home. Almost all trafficked children are forced into hard labor and prostitution.

Around the world, as many as 1.2 million children are trafficked every year. In Mexico, more than 16,000 children are working in the sex trade, most of them concentrated around tourist destinations. In Southeast Asia, at least 30 percent of sex trade workers are between the ages of 12 and 17.

This is not an isolated issue and it cannot go ignored any longer. Our children are our future, and they should be protected and nurtured instead of bought and sold. Tell the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, to stand up for our future and end child trafficking.

Please read this!
Make Ending Violence Against Women A Worldwide Priority!

Please sign the e-petition if nothing else:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/420/337/438/

Is there one like this for the Government of the USA or the UN?
- If yes, let me know where!

----------------------------------------
The below text is from the above web-site.

Target: The Honourable Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Sponsored by: CARE Canada
Women and girls are the most vulnerable people around the world. They represent up to 70 percent of the people living in poverty. One billion women will be victims of violence in their lifetimes.

Violence is both a cause and effect of poverty. It leaves physical and emotional scars. Moreover, all violence against women and girls, including female genital mutilation and rape, are unacceptable violations of human rights.

Sign the petition to call upon the Government of Canada to bring domestic and international attention to the issue of violence against women and girls and to make ending such violence a worldwide priority.

It was...
50 years ago today:
Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (Russian: Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин), a Soviet pilot and cosmonaut, was the first human being to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12, 1961.

BTW, have you seen any of these movies:
- October Sky
- Contact
- Sphere
- Starman
- Sunshine

???

Writer's Block: Waitin' for a super name
AKA
What's the story behind your username?


I have written about this before.
It is a medium to long story with many parts to it... one part I'm not sure if I mentioned before is that I wanted my name to be a fairly unique string of characters that could be used by a search engine to locate my trail on the 'net. I came up with this idea in the early 90s or maybe even the late 80s when I was just a little kid and the 'net was young and small. It worked pretty well, just do a google or yahoo search for "sighris" and see some of the trail which I have left.

Namaste,
Sighris

Writer's Block: Going Down - funniest WB question ever! :D
You're on a crashing plane and your partner is fast asleep. Would you wake her/him up to say 'I love you' one last time or let her/him die in her/his sleep?


OMGosh, that is funny...
- ummmmm... I guess I would wake them up... they can sleep more after they are dead! ;-)

- - but I guess the other side ov thee coin is: If I truly love them, hopefully they already know, and maybe I could spare them a little suffering by letting them sleep... Hmmmm...

 - - ->  I guess it depends on how high up the plane is and if there is enough time to have sex one last time. :D --> hey honey, wake up, we are both going to die in a minute, take your cloths off as fast as you can! ;-)

movie
How often does a movie come out that you believe is worth your time to watch?

For me, it is pretty rare, but I'm interested in this one:
http://www.soulsurferthemovie.com
- I bet you will be interested too.

In theaters on April 8th.

Based on a true story (the info below is from the above website):
Bethany has become a source of inspiration to millions through her
story of determination, faith and hope. Born into a family of surfers
on February 8, 1990, Bethany jumped on the board at a young age.
Bethany entered her first surf competition—winning both the short and
long board divisions at age eight. On Halloween morning 2003, Bethany
was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark, which bit off her left arm and
seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. After losing more than
60% of her blood and undergoing several surgeries, Bethany began her
recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude. Miraculously, just
one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water. Two months
later, Bethany placed fifth in the Open Women's division surf
competition and just over a year after the attack she won her first
National Title. In 2007, Bethany realized her dream and turned pro.
Bethany has since participated in numerous Association of Surfing
Professionals and World Tour Events with her major highlight being a
second place finish in the ASP 2009 World Junior Championships. "It
has been an incredible journey for me and now, I'm just so excited to
share it!" says Bethany.

"Bethany's story is so powerful," says Soul Surfer Director Sean
McNamara. "Most people would have given up after what happened to her,
but not only did she make an amazing return to surfing, she excelled
at it, and has turned her life into an inspiration for people all
around the world. She is someone you look at and think, 'If she can do
all the incredible things she's done, I can set the world on fire,
too.'" says Sean.
