I am cursed to see the future with unique insight and clarity, it is a great source of misery... My pathetic words and thoughts will wallow here, but I cannot deny them... read them if you wish, just leave me in peace.

An Old Poem - January 29th, 2009

Words are a prison...
a vise that limits thought...
I can not use them to communicate,
my visions that exist inside...
only to describe the cage.

Half Empty, Half Full, Half Wit - July 18th, 2003

Every time I hear someone talking about the 'glass is half empty/full' I realize how simple minded so many people are. I always enjoy impressing idiots, so I generally tell them that the glass is completely full... half is filled with liquid, and half if filled with air. I guess that makes me SUPER POSITIVE! Of course, if they want to put you down, they'll probably come up with a glass in a vacuum or something...

But let's think about this here for a second... empty and full are extremes, final states of being for the glass... When you are pouring something into a glass, your goal is to fill the glass to a certain level... as you pour, the glass goes from empty, to half full, to full... When you drink from the glass, it goes from full, to half empty, to empty...

Now if you happen to see a glass sitting there, without anyone drinking from it, or attempting to fill it... Then the best answer, if forced to choose, is that the glass is half empty, since it is most likely that someone was drinking from the glass, and hasn't finished, rather than someone failing to fill the glass...

So, are you the waitress of life, running around filling half full glasses, or are you enjoying life as you sip from your half empty glass?
