Just to love, and be loved in return

Omelette from Madeline Sharafian on Vimeo.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that above all, I want to be remembered as someone who loved well (in addition to being remembered for my brave and selfless exploits in the Robot Wars, obviously).  Too often I'm not very good at expressing my love and appreciation and admiration of people.  Sometimes, a little video reminding me of the simple pleasure of loving others openly and simply makes me all teary-eyed.  (Newsflash, I am a sap for anything that anthropomorphises a dog.  That Peachtree commercial where the dog loses his home?  Oh my god.  Make me leave the room.)

I'm always fearful that I'm somehow a total shit at showing that I care about people.  Loving others is great.  I need to be better at it.  It's pretty simple.  Why does it always fall to the bottom of the pile of Things To Focus On in life, then?  Just cooking someone a meal to pick them up -- that's so simple.

(Seriously, this is what happens when I watch an anthropomorphic dog cartoon.  It's like, this is Hayley on regular internet videos, THIS IS HAYLEY ON FEELY-FEELING-Y ANTHRO DOG VIDEOS WAAAAAHHHHHHH.)


  1. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of
    the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
    content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. But imagine if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could
    definitely be one of the very best in its niche.
    Very good blog!
