She was born like a kite in a storm. Though she howls like a tornado, she brings not winds of change.
We all know people like this, don't we? Theirs is a cycle, predictable and true, often painful to watch, but what else can you do?
Do you flee the storm, or get sucked in to the point where you inevitably become it? The time to decide is long before you begin to feel the winds that swirl.
Tornado Ally is a risk.
Risk your home; you can always build another, but don't risk your life because you've only got one.
Any cycle can be undone.
Its undoing is change, and change begins with you. Change begins with me. Either that, or change doesn't begin at all, and what a tragedy that would be.
Ultimately, the choice is ours.
...do we stay?
...do we run?
Or do we become one with the wind to be passed along?
Through wisdom and luck, here's to hope that our choices are wise.

I have associated with many a tornado. At times it was interesting, exciting, and fun to be a part of. But I also got hurt a couple times. Bad.
I learned later in life that I thrive better in calmer climates.
I not only got out of Tornado Ally but also forgave and let go of the effects of a couple of catagory 5's.::::: | December 7, 2006 9:13 AM
Man do I like this quote: "Through wisdom and luck, here's to hope that our choices are wise." Hear hear. I have no idea who you're writing about because I just found your blog, but damn, I'm curious now. Sounds a lot like my ex wife tho.
*CLINK* back at you.::::: | February 2, 2007 6:31 PM
