    Apr 9 2013: *Finding the light in everyone - this is a Quaker idea that I'm currently trying to work into my everyday life.
    *I want to become a polyglot. Not sure if that's a skill, exactly.
    *I want to learn to write poetry - or more exactly figure out how to express certain sentiments, like the feeling of holding hands, or that moment of driving under a bridge in the rain, when all the sounds ceases for a brief moment.
