kipepeo is radioactive. Wear protective clothing at all times.



Haha....That was funny! Didn't really know I was radioactive! LOL! Anyway, I finally got myself a copy of the alchemist by Paulo Coelho! Amazing, Brilliant, Lush book. I'm loving it! It's such a shame it's not any longer. I'm coming close to the end and I don't want to. It should be the handbook of life. It's about a lot of things but what has been repeated repeatedly is this...."When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dreams."... That phrase is beautiful in it's simplicity. It just feels like the book was written for me to read at this particular time in my life. I've finally found a peace with myself and my life. I'm not as anal and worried about what the future holds anymore. There isn't very much I can do to change it. It's been written already and the best I can do is be the best I can be and LIVE! Today was a gorgeous day and I got into my little skirt and little top, got my 50SPF sunscreen, my sunglasses, my music, my book and went out to soak up the sun on what we call the "green beach". It was glorious. I lay there alone for like three hours...Just me, the birds, the sun, paulo and his great writing and matisyahu singing in my ears. I thought bout everything and everyone. Bout me and what's been going on with me and my world. I decided I liked being me. I have more than I could have asked for. I'm healthy, in charge of my life...Well most of the time, and well most of all, I'm happy. It's a true happiness that doesn't need anybody in it's recipe. I am the sole ingredient of my happiness at this point and frankly I love it! I don't really care what people think, I wear my hair like I want to, I dress like I want to, listen to the music I want to and I am more than content. I've got the privilege of experiencing all these new and exciting things and its great. Anyway, enough for now, i leave you with more of Paulo's great words....

..."The dunes are changed by the wind, but the desert never changes. That's the way it will be with our love for each other..."

-Paulo Coelho

I just read that book two weeks ago and I too loved it. To say that it made me think and think again would be an understatement! Im not reading all his other books.

Alchemist is an awesome read. Bought a multicolored (pinkish) hard cover copy way back in 2002 and have been encouraging people to read it ever since. Yes, it is too short, but still a classic.
