only to live

"Where is it I've read that someone condemned to death says or thinks, an hour before his death, that if he had to live on some high rock, on such a narrow ledge that he'd only room to stand, and the ocean, everlasting darkness, everlasting solitude, everlasting tempest around him, if he had to remain standing on a square yard of space all his life, a thousand years, eternity, it where better to live so than to die at once! Only to live, to live and live! Life, whatever it may be!...How true it is! Good God, how true!"

-Crime and Punishment

Hahaha. I already have the myspace and band name. It's just waiting for some cute pictures of girls in dresses...the dresses which our mad skills will make this summer! :)
I had the most fantastic time with you girls yesterday. Good friends and chocolate, where can you go wrong?

FYI, I just tagged you on my blog to be part of the "wish list meme".

When are you going to come over?
