September Morn

I love the meadow  in the dew

Of early day as dawn sifts through

The last gray strands of morning mist,

And wild flowers, softly kissed,

Turn their faces to the light,

And now the meadow glistens bright,

As nighttime's shapeless shadows flee

Into the shade of a linden tree.

Three Thoughts

 "It is easier to live with a bad thing that used to be worse than a good thing that used to be better."

"The first thing to ask when something goes wrong is whether you ever gave it a chance to go otherwise." 


Before assuming that someone knows they're appreciated, it is perhaps wise to review your "Ways They Would Know" list.

The Greater Pretender

It may be true that the person you see in your mirror is not the person you pretend to be in pubic, though you might ask, "Which is the greater pretender?"

Twelve Thoughts

If you follow an old recipe, do not expect a new dish.

There is evidence of a God perfect in all things except creating beings in His own image.

How can you not be optimistic about a world where armies of little angels, disguised as devils and launched under cover of darkness, keep coming back with candy.

What do you say about a creature who, seeing a lion in the jungle, concludes that he, not the lion, is the one made in the image of God. 

Ever notice how we meateaters prefer to eat animals that eat a healthy vegetable diet?

If you do not believe in miracles, then how exactly can you believe in yourself?

Complexity is what causes your brow to furrow.  Simplicity is what causes your mouth to drop open. 

I don't know that laughter is the best medicine, but, if not, it has wondrously curative side effects.

Man is a creature of pranks whose God has never been pictured laughing.

The secret of a long life is to invite ardor into your heart, also known as ardoring of the hearteries. 

No one ever says, "That's a very good question," and answers it.

If your life were a movie, which Oscar would you most like to win:  best actor or best film?

Another Day

 "Another day of being old enough.  Still waiting for the knowing better to kick in."
