Look for People With No Feet!

Saturday, February 13, 2010

Sometimes it seems that the bad stuff keeps piling up but I remember the proverb about the man who was sad that he had no shoes until he met a man with no feet. Bad stuff is going to happen, we need to get over it. There is always someone out there with no feet. It is said that the poorest, most destitute person in America is better off than 75% of the world's population. That's an awful lot of people with no feet.

A Much Needed Staycation

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

Sometimes you just need to stop doing everything that you have to do for a little while and let the world spin. Forget about work and deadlines. Forget about household chores. Forget about all the stuff that just has to be done. Just kick back and relax. Most of the stuff that "has to be done" is not life threatening. Somehow even if it doesn't get donne, this old Earth will just keep spinning around. Treat yourself. Take a "staycation" every few weeks, wear your pajamas all day, watch videos and generally veg out.
