Surrounded by Life

Standing on the Edge
having no words of wisdom
to offer
no pithy observations
about life in general
or my own in particular
I'm only stopping by
to assure you,
my gentle reader,
that I have not fallen
from the face of this round earth,
have not succumbed
to the tyranny of obligation
threatening my very existence
have not thrown myself head first
from the nearest bridge
~
but if i did
i hope i would land in
a nest of soft words
delicate phrases to cushion my fall
simple thoughts of joy
expressed with love and attention
by you
my faraway, faceless friends
whose love inspires me
to stand tall

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. If is possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll, I thank. Good bye friend.

I simply cannot believe how you speak to me every single time I stop by. Wonderful. Yes, you are.
