don't get any big ideas

"With growing amazement, all ears, not letting fall a single word, the maiden listened to the impassioned speech, which, as a mirror, reflected a young and powerful spirit" Nicolai Gogol's Taras Bulba

Today marks @peanutsmrbond and mine one year anniversary of living in Seattle (aka #babehsgowa) Today we also mark the first full day in our new Magnolia apartment with this spectacular view. There will be many things I miss about the CD; the BBQ Pit, the Twilight Exit but, screaming children and parents, loud, thumping mariachi music, you will not be missed. All things included, we could say this past year was our most challenging together and no doubt we have second-guessed ourselves that moving across the country was the right idea. Instead, we choose to take confidence in ourselves and one another that as we continue to establish ourselves and refine our goals, we continue to thank and love our family and friends that have been infallibly supportive. We love you and miss you and now that we have an apartment to be proud of, come visit!

It was this special lady’s birthday yesterday. I miss her sweet ass everyday and I dream about the next time I see her. Oh that sweet Niagara Falls @linds164

Khutulun (circa 1260-1306)
Art by Tara (tumblr)
Khutulun was the great-great granddaughter of Genghis Khan.  Her father, Kaidu, ruled a large swath of Central Asia and actively opposed his uncle, Kublai Khan.
Khutulun accompanied her father on military campaigns, which was not unusual in her culture.  Mongolian women were known as skilled horseback riders and hunters.  It was not unheard of for Mongolian women to participate in battle.
What made Khutulun unique was her wrestling ability.  She competed in public wrestling competitions and is said to have won 10,000 horses from her opponents.   According to Marco Polo, Khutulun refused to marry unless a man could first defeat her in wrestling.   No prospective groom ever won her hand and Khutulun eventually chosen her own husband, possibly in attempt to quell rumors that she was sexually involved with her father.
Khutulun was her father’s favorite child and one of his most trusted advisers.  Kaidu may have hoped to make Khutulun his successor.   After Kaidu’s death in 1301, Khutulun formed an alliance with her brother Orus which allowed her to remain commander of the military until her own death in 1306.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience.
