Would you?


If I died today, would you remember me?

Would you truly know who I was, who I wanted to be, who I longed to be?

Would you know my loves and my heartaches...would you know my heart?

Would you remember times spent together laughing or crying?

Would you go to a memorial service for me? Would you recognize me from the things that people said there?

Would you miss the sound of my voice or smile when you remembered my laugh?

Would you remember how my eyes looked when I was sad?

Would you remember what I loved to do and what was dear to me?

Would you see me in my children?

Would you remember my faith and ponder it again?

Would you think of the time I freely gave to others?

Would you read my writings and think about them again?

Would you know how deeply I loved, how I longed for friendship?

Would you really know me?

Would you?

Or would you remember me as arrogant and a know-it-all?

Would you remember me as someone who always has to be right, never to admit a mistake?

That I wasn't perfect, as well as inflexible and stubborn?

Would you remember me as selfish and self-centered?

Would you think that I spent too much money and took you for granted, remembering thoughts of inadequacy and disrespect?

Would you remember that I laughed a little too loud, asked too many questions or sang a little off-key?

Would you only remember to be grateful that it was over?

Would you?

Our History with Saber Forge

UPDATE, April 19, 2012: we purchased new sabers from Ultra Saber LLC. To see a review, go HERE.

Saber Forge's Ambassador saber hilt
This post is to document and record the history of our experience with a company called Saber Forge. I would like this information to serve as information and perhaps a warning to all that are interested in purchasing a machined lightsaber, and/or are considering Saber Forge.

Saber Forge makes and sells lightsabers to be used as props with Star Wars costumes. When we started looking to purchase lightsabers that had the ability to light, Lisa posted for information on the Rebel Legion website. She was contacted by Mr. Phil Isherwood, owner of SaberForge.

It is most unfortunate that we have had problems with the sabers. I love the hilt, to be honest, and felt that we got what we paid for; however, the lingering problems and now the complete lack of customer service is most troubling.

Just Throwin' It Around

I have a friend who just got engaged to be married. As he was detailing the way he proposed to his beloved, something he said caught my attention. In the course of his adult life, dating and living, he had promised himself that he would only use the actual word love towards the one who he was going to marry. He further explained that it was his thought that people 'throw the word love around carelessly' and that it had a special meaning, one meaning. For him, it was only to be used in speaking to his soon-to-be wife.

I can see his point, especially when thinking about dating. I know it happens, all too often, that relationships proceed a little too quickly and emotions peak prompting hasty pronouncements of love and devotion only to be rescinded down the line, after the passion has worn off. Careful and introspective we must be when experiencing and building a new relationship that we don't bite off more than we can chew, so to speak. I agree with my engaged friend - w…

Confession

I am a maker and collecter of Artist Trading Cards. In my world, we call them "Letterboxer Trading Cards", because they are made by letterboxers and they must have a hand-carved stamp featured on the card. I have made hundreds, even thousands of these cards, and enjoy the hobby immensely (samples shown are a few of my cards). I also collect them from other artists and letterboxers, and have a collection numbering (also) in the thousands.



So, here's the confession: I HATE LOGGING THEM! Yes, that's right, I said 'hate'. I know, that's pretty strong, but it is the only way I can adequately describe the feeling of dread that comes over me the second after I enjoy receiving them in the mail. If I were a disciplined person, I would immediately make my way to the computer, sign into to my favorite letterboxing site and let these wonderful friends know how much I love their efforts, thus easing their minds that their hard work arrived safe and sound in my care.
