OH WHAT LABELS WE WEAR

How unintentionally we tell people about us. From the moment we leave the house in the morning and until we return if the evening, we are telling everyone we meet about ourselves. Oh what labels we wear. Socrates, the late Dr Fulton J. Sheen, the articulate Catholic priest; the English poet Ben... Sign in to see full entry.

YOU!

YOU are not Jesus, Budha, Mohammed, nor any of those to whom millions pay allegiance. But YOU are YOU. We only have faith that any of these persons lived. None of YOU reading this could give incontrovertible evidence that any of them existed. Yet YOU are here. YOU have it in YOU r hands to affect... Sign in to see full entry.

You See, We Never Know!

It most parts of the world, at this hour, we are leaving for a weekend break. Somehow, we will be back at work on Monday. Or will we? You see I do not know; nor do you. So be glad you saw this week and its end. Pay respect to your neighbour; acknowledge his, or her, presence. Neither of you may be... Sign in to see full entry.

Frost: THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

As promised, I am posting another of my favourite poems. Many of you have read it before. But have you carefully, and analytically, thought it through? How do you reconcile, 'Had worn them just the same' to 'I took the one less traveled by?' Is there a contradiction? Are there other contradictions?... Sign in to see full entry.

UNREQUITED LOVE

Just a while ago, as I traveled along the highway, it clearly dawned on me what true love really is. It struck me that with all the grief my cats have caused me, I have never become angry; I have never even looked at them with any degree of disdain. I have not even forgiven them because I have never... Sign in to see full entry.

The Intrinsic Value

We fail miserably when we ignore our friends. Sometimes we conclude that we cannot offer the little things lest they not be appreciated. Yet it is the small things, the small gestures, that affect the most. Small things are available more often and can be given more often. When we wait to offer big... Sign in to see full entry.

I OFTEN WONDER

Often I wonder why do I bother to write on this board. It does not seem that my posts are interesting enough to attract the minimum of readers. It is frustrating. Yet, since I have paid for the site, I will continue to expose my ignorance. Sometimes, out of nothing something comes; perhaps. Stay... Sign in to see full entry.

GOOD FOR EVERY DAY

.Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. Buy a lock if you have to.. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, 'My purpose is to ____ today.'. Eat more foods that grow... Sign in to see full entry.
