Anticipation and Self Help

"An intense anticipation itself transforms possibility into reality; our desires being often but precursors of the things which we are capable of performing."

Samuel Smiles

I often use google searches to come up with my random blog post titles. I have a vague idea in my head then see what I can come up with. Tonight's search has lead me to read about Samuel Smiles. I'm actually quite interested to read his book 'Self Help'.
Now to completely dumb this down.
Anticipation #1
Yeah this looks like sh1tty weather to my American pals but trust me this is as close to glorious as we can expect on these shores in September.
Anticipation #2
Getting to see the great Chuey Quintanar who is flying in from Long Beach for the ILTC2011 this weekend. Wonder if Edgar Hoill has brought some cigars with him?
And heck, for the fun of it I just might Self Help myself to a pair of these.
It's almost the end of a pretty torrid couple of weeks for me personally, but I have my FAMILY, my health and I'm seeing silver linings in everything that's going on around me.
Thank you to everyone who continues to support me spiritually and emotionally*. Now if you could just add to that support financially that would really lift me up.
