There are so many variations on this theme, from his tattoo to his bracelet. Here’s something that I found on the Zone a long time ago (Thanks !!!): ‘Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away’. Not Johnny, but it could have been. I have it displayed in my room at work – and now, so do all of my colleagues, who were as affected by it as I was. He affects me profoundly. I am a ‘glass half empty ‘ kind of girl. I don’t like that, but it’s the way I am. But my friend asked me how come I was always so positive where Johnny was concerned? She even used the phrase: whenever Johnny is involved, my glass is always half full. That was the day we went to the premiere and I just expected I was going to meet him. Crowd or no crowd. And so it was. I am learning to get into that groove of thinking, of being positive. Get off your backside; go and seek out what you want; search for the moments that take your breath away – and you will get them. I have learnt that from Johnny. Along with a whole number of other things too, of course.


Wow, Suec, I can relate to every word, here. :-O

Thank you for all of your contributions to ONBC as one of our reporters in the field. I'm really glad to see you back online again. :cool:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Thanks Liz! It was pretty horrible being so disconnected and I am very happy about being back online :bounce:
