Far, far away

Here is a tranquil place, far far away:

You know, when I'm already drudging through winter, the world news is particularly hard to take.  What the sam hill is going on?  Buncha evil crazy crap.

I stumbled upon another blogger / blogspot blog, and the post on her front page was like gold.  I love it so much, I just need to quote it:

evil is finite. 
Think about it. 
Evil is the antithesis to creative power.  It is in opposition to life, to love.  It destroys.  It doesn't build up.  It implodes and extinguishes itself when it can no longer survive parasitically on life, on truth.  When reality can no longer be denied then evil perishes in the flames of its own lies.
(Anna Valerious) 

She goes on to say

Celebrate life.  We celebrate life by living it.  We can only be said to be living life if we are living in reality.  Reality and truth are synonymous.  Yes, sometimes reality sucks, but to live in lies never ends well.  Choose truth over lies even when truth is painful.  Because truth is eternal.  Lies are finite. 
I can't stop re-reading those words.  Awesome.
