" Much have I traveled
 in the realms of gold, 
and many goodly states 
and kingdoms seen.  "

John Keats














" No trumpets sound 
when the important decisions of our life
 are made.
 Destiny is made known 
silently.  "

                                   Agnes de Mille

some people get lost in thought
is because it's
unfamiliar territory. "

Your job,
 when confused or upset,
should you choose to accept it,
is simply to reach
for a slightly better feeling
than the current one.

That's it.

Don't seek the overarching answer,
just look for a slightly
better feeling
about what's going on.

Instead of:
"I'm late AGAIN!"
try:
"What if I'm right on time!"

And definitely stay away from
stuff like:
"I'm always late!"
"What's wrong with me?"
and so on . . .
Don't generalize beyond
the present situation.

This sounds simplistic
but many great ideas
are really very simple,
Such as:
"Treat others 
as You wish to be treated."


REPEAT AS NECESSARY.

Mówisz o tym co wszyscy wiedzą, ale niestety nie przestrzegają. Świetne zdjecia. Pozdrawiam.*** You talk about what almost everybody knows, but unfortunately did not follow the law. Great pictures. Yours.

I like your title today. "Your life's work" it doesn't end when you punch out. Enjoy your day, we have a rainy Monday. - Karen
