Beautiful Peace
(A song by The Murmurs)

Fly away, where a new world waits for you
Always look back, though
Not to cry, and not to regret, just to help who's left behind
Help us all to heal and understand
Because, we don't know why you had to leave
I can only guess it was time for you to be free
To ascend to a broader more wonderful life than this
I believe you're in a better place now
A place where only beautiful souls will hold you
Be sure to comfort, and protect your children
They need you now
Stand behind them, rise within them, and love them.

This is something we saw regularly:   *evil grin*

Right in the middle of an O/S War, she had this to say:
   Now I have to get a MAC so my life will be right :-)

This was her team Introduction:


Greetings fellow RFP team members!!  I am Coquette and am greatly
pleased to a part of the team!! <wild aplause!!>******</wild aplause>

I am as I like to say - "just me".  I have been plugged into the net a
good 4 years now and have since i began been playing with writing HTML.
I have the pleasure at the immediate time to not have to work which
gives me soooo much time to finish all the projects i got started 6
months ago and perhaps get myself on the web before the millinium.  I am
one of 'those' people that get side tracked making my own images and
loose great amounts of time screaming at Corel.
I just relocated from sunny California to Long Island New York (about 6
months ago or so).  Why?  well it's one of those I'm married to a sys
admin and he got one of those can't turn it down sort of job offers
(although at this point i can't seem to remember why it couldn't be
turned down *evil grin*).

I have a great love of web publishing and graphics artistry and am
working on turning a hobby into a lucrative way to pay the bills.
Thanks to the benefit of living with a born to be tech geek i am
surounded by hardware, the computers have more living space than I do,
and have what seems to be an endless supply of book and software - now
if I could just figure out how to import all that into the gray matter
between my ears :-).  At any rate I have loads to learn and am loving
every minute of it.

Since i have a great deal of time on my hands due to a current inability
to work at what I usually do (I've been a Chef for the past 18 years)I
have all this time to dedicate to working with you wonderful people and
hope to learn alot along the way.

Here's looking forward to a great time for one and all!!!

Just me
