Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

dude, thats exactly what i feel like, except the lexy and the rainbow serpant bit maybe....

i spent a year in canterbury and learned to love the uk and the people i met.
i lived in vienna for 14 years of my life and i have a great time, but i always miss england and keep thinking about what i left behind and how great the people are that i met.

i miss you guys.
a lot.
ill do my best to come back.

hug smile

Thats got it...

You forgot about tea and cake though... Nowhere else in the world (ive only been to Germany, France and Spain) does a good cup of tea...

Oh yeah, and dont forget our overwhelming sense of national pride, even though we are little more than an American outpost, and we havent got much to be proud of...

And you dont get as many herons around these days...
