Happy Thursday, one and all. We’ve nearly survived another work week. To celebrate, let’s all take the weekend off. What? Oh, you’re doing that already, well never mind then.
I received good responses to my post, “Strive to live the ordinary life in a non-ordinary way.” A lot of philosophers out there.
The above quote made me think of other quotes that I have found inspiring, profound or thought-provoking. One of my favorites is by Socrates, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”
I see too many people who blunder through life seemingly unaware of how the chaos inherent in their lives is similar to or a virtual repeat of past experiences. If they would take a moment to think about cause and effect, to reflect on past actions and the outcomes that developed therefrom, these individuals might have a less stressful, more emotional fulfilling life.
We all need to reflect inwardly upon occasion, to take stock of where we are, emotionally, spiritually and physically. If we don’t know where we are, how are we going to know how to get where we want to be?
Enough philosophizing, I am not particularly good at it but I keep trying.
Today’s poem is called “The Dark,” and is about the things that go bump in the night.
Scale said 252.0 yesterday. Looking for the 240s next week sometime.
Still writing “The Curious Item That Fell From The Sky.” The trouble is not that it is a particularly difficult story to write. The problem lately has been finding a block of time big enough to “get” into the story. Deadline is still aways off. Hopefully, i will have it finished before my writing group meets again.
Enough rambling for one day. Thanks in advance if you take time from your busy schedule to read these scribblings.
Till next time, be safe, be happy, be creative.
