Friday’s Reef: Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation in awe of everything you see around you. Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you. This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe.~Wayne Dyer

Always keep mint on your windowsill in August, to ensure that buzzing flies will stay outside, where they belong. Don't think the summer is over, even when roses droop and turn brown and the stars shift position in the sky. Never presume August is a safe or reliable time of the year.~Alice Hoffman~~We old folks have to find our cushions and pillows in our tankards. Strong beer is the milk of the old.~Martin Luther~~There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says 'Good people drink good beer.' Which is true, then as now. Just look around you in any public barroom and you will quickly see: Bad people drink bad beer. Think about it.~Hunter S. Thompson~~I don't think I could ever go skinny…I do eat healthily for a week, and then I go, 'Nah, they have these beautiful ice-cream sandwiches.' I don't think my emotional eating is ever going to change.~Rebel Wilson~~It is always sad when someone leaves home, unless they are simply going around the corner and will return in a few minutes with ice-cream sandwiches.~Lemony Snicket~~Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.~Al Hirschfeld~~Coloring outside the lines is a fine art.~Kim Nance~~When I am holding a water balloon, so many things look so unnecessarily dry.~Demetri Martin~~It is generally a more productive day when you learn something from life rather than try to teach it something.~Robert Brault

the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. Often at night there is lightning, but it quivers all alone. There is no thunder, no relieving rain. These are strange and breathless days, the dog days, when people are led to do things they are sure to be sorry for.~Natalie Babbitt~~A kid once said to me "Do you get hangovers?" I said, "To get hangovers you have to stop drinking.~Lemmy Kilmister~~A hangover is the wrath of grapes.~Dorothy Parker~~Be a clown , be a clown, All the world loves a clown. Act the fool , play the calf, And you'll always have the last laugh .~Cole Porter~~Nobody likes a clown at midnight~Stephen King~~The clown has great importance as part of the search for what is laughable and ridiculous in man. We should put the emphasis on the rediscovery of our own individual clown, the one that has grown-up within us and which society does not allow us to express.~Jacques Lecoq~~The echoes of beauty you've seen transpire, Resound through dying coals of a campfire.~Ernest Hemingway~~Watermelon - it's a good fruit. You eat, you drink, you wash your face.~Enrico Caruso~~There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: twins.~Josh Billings~~There's two to wash, two to dry; There's two who argue, two who cry; There's two to kiss, two to hug; and best of all, there's two to love!~Jerry Smith~~We are like children building a sand castle. We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of colored glass. The castle is ours, off limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.~Pema Chodron~~That's the hell of sand castles. They are always doomed. That's part of their beauty — their impermanence.~Pamela Moore~~We don't always get the miracle we pray for, but we nearly always get the strength we pray for.~Robert Brault
