Life's Experiences

I like the Owl very much.It goes with the saying, " wise as an Owl". Age, experience and the desire to learn , gives me my Avatar. I try to give advice that's true and never harmful.I use word's of wisdom from a time of ethics. I observe and come in when I choose . I go as I please, in peace. I'm nobody's fool. That's me  REALLY.

A Dream Within A Dream <br />
<br />
Take this kiss upon the brow!<br />
And, in parting from you now,<br />
Thus much let me avow--<br />
You are not wrong, who deem<br />
That my days have been a dream;<br />
Yet if hope has flown away<br />
In a night, or in a day,<br />
In a vision, or in none,<br />
Is it therefore the less gone?<br />
All that we see or seem<br />
Is but a dream within a dream.<br />
<br />
I stand amid the roar<br />
Of a surf-tormented shore,<br />
And I hold within my hand<br />
Grains of the golden sand--<br />
How few! yet how they creep<br />
Through my fingers to the deep,<br />
While I weep--while I weep!<br />
O God! can I not grasp<br />
Them with a tighter clasp?<br />
O God! can I not save<br />
One from the pitiless wave?<br />
Is all that we see or seem<br />
But a dream within a dream? <br />
<br />
by Edgar Allan Poe

thanks so much..it took a year to find one with " Me" in it.She's just sitting there and observing..thinking and quiet..a good habit :>}

I love your avatar :)

This Owl loves you and will not hurt with words! I'll fly off and go hunt a dirty mouse..swoops away into the night.

That sure sounds like you Owlie!! <br />
