Etruscan, about 500-480 BC Made in ancient Etruria, in modern Italy
i don’t understand people who fear living a simple life and remaining unrecognised by the world. i’m happy if i have touched the lives of my parents, siblings and that of the man i will spend my life with and my future children, and there is no shame in leading an unremarkable life and remaining unknown.
It is so much easier to be attracted to someone than it is to be in love with someone.
Attraction comes and goes, it demands no obligation for you to stay loyal.
Love… Love requires two people to daily make the choice to be devoted to each other. To push one another to the cross because they know attraction will flee, they know that passion will be absent because that is what happens sometimes. Love, like joy, is not an emotion, it is endurance of future attraction, future passion. Love is the anchor that must keep us rooted in the storms, it is not the wind or the end goal, it is simply a tool that Christ gave to us the moment we were born.
Do not misuse love, do not mistake attraction for love. Because when it really matters and you are in desperate need of an anchor, using anything other than what is needed will end up with you sinking your ship.
Know love before you profess love.

Storium is a new kind of online game where you and your friends tell any story you can imagine, together.
Storium is a web-based online game that you play with friends. It works by turning writing into a multiplayer game. With just your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you can choose from a library of imaginary worlds to play in, or build your own. You create your story’s characters and decide what happens to them. You can tell any kind of story with Storium. The only limit is your imagination.
Storium uses familiar game concepts inspired by card games, role-playing games, video games, and more. In each Storium game, one player is the narrator, and everyone else takes on the role of a character in the story. The narrator creates dramatic challenges for the other players to overcome. In doing so, they move the story forward in a new direction. Everyone gets their turn at telling the story.
“Story and Game had a baby, and it’s Storium. This is vital stuff, equal parts revolutionary and fundamental — giving the old ways of storytelling a major digital upgrade.”— Chuck Wendig, novelist and screenwriter

(I’m always down with interactive fiction! This looks like a cool new way to RP and share stories. They have a Kickstarter here! And cool authors taking part in some of the world building.)
