I've been feeling grumpy lately.....and somehow the board's feeling that way too. It's weird, everybody seems like they are in similiar moods .....especially this anger thing.

SO in honor of anger managment....my answer is: Poetry (;

Actually it's a Toad the Wet Sprocket song but... it hit my mood today like a ton of bricks! Enjoy!

"Throw It All Away"

Take your cautionary tales
and your incremental gain
and all the sycophantic games
and throw 'em all away

burn your tv in your yard
and gather 'round it with your friends
and warm your hands upon the fire
and start again

take the story that you've been sold
the lies that justify the pain
the guilt that weighs upon your soul
and throw 'em all away

tear up the calendar that you bought
and throw the pieces to the sky
confetti falling down like rain
like a parade to usher in your life

take the dreams that shoud've died
the ones that kept you lying awake
when you should've been all right
and throw 'em all away

with the time I waste on the life I never had
I could've turned myself into a better man
there's nothing you can buy
and there's nothing you can save
to fill the hole inside your heart
so throw it all away

help me to empty this house
the wood I've gathered all these days
and thought I couldn't do without
and throw it all away!

- Glenn Phillips

AHHHHH! I feel better!
