I want to get away... and make a difference

I need to get out of where I am... at least for a little while. I need a change and I need to do something really positive with my life.
After tonight I really just want to go to Haiti with Nailah and Jean. I want to rebuild JANBE with them, I want to get my hands dirty and get back to work and do it for people who deserve. I want to make bagged lunches for them and donate dance clothes to them and watch them dance... I REALLY REALLY want to rebuild their studio, help it grow.
I know Haiti isn't the safest place... and I do not speak one word of french outside of the ballet dictionary... but I want that feeling back that I had when I was in New Orleans... JANBE is like a refuge, a safehaven, a home for so many of these students... They need to have it this summer, and I want to make it happen...
gaaaaaaaahhh send me on the next plane out with my hardhelmet and workboots...

I love finding articles.

I love when I sign online and yahoo pops up and it has stories that interest me. Heres a few snippets from one I read today, its about soulmates!

The concept of the soul mate is thousands of years old and probably was originated by the Greek philosopher Plato. Plato described a soul mate as the person's "other half" that has been split from him. The quest of life is to find your missing half. That theme has been explored in movies like "The Butcher's Wife," "The Time Traveler's Wife," and "City of Angels." Other views of soul mates include reincarnation: our soul mate is someone with whom we have shared other lives.
The soul mate concept also carries with it the belief that a perfect person exists for us, if only we could find him or her -- then love and life would be easy. This belief has created a lot of trouble for people, especially in the area of commitment. By insisting on finding a perfect partner, many people have walked away from really great potential partners. Why? Because something was missing. Maybe it was chemistry, or that he/she didn't match their ideal of The One. So they've ended up alone, still looking for that perfect soul mate. The renowned family psychiatrist Frank Pittman once said, "Nothing has produced more unhappiness than the concept of the soul mate."

Lasting love is a hard-won battle of personal discipline, compromise, dedication, and commitment.

Scientists have found that scent plays a role in physical attraction and desire. Other research shows that those who are of similar educational levels are more compatible.

Bottom line: your chances of finding The One are better than you think. So go out there and start looking. Love almost always comes in a surprise package that opens up in marvelous and magical ways.
