and today

"Learn something new everyday, or life is not worth living"
everyday is worth it, but only memorable if you take something away.  write things down, they stay longer.  lessons can be something simple like where your new favorite coffee spot is in a certain neighborhood or that your best friend doesn't like tomatoes any more, because inevitably, people change.  sometimes faster than we would like, sometimes in ways we didn't expect, sometimes into something we no longer want to know.  but you never know until you try.

Old are the words of wisdom, old
The counsels of the wise and bold:
To close the ears, to check the tongue,
To keep the pining spirit young;
To act the right, to say the true,
And to be kind whate'er you do.

-Robert Louis Stevenson ~ What Man May Learn, What Man May Do
