“I won’t tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world’s voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!” ~ Oscar Wilde
“You can never know about about your own destiny: are the people you meet there to play a part on your own destiny, or do you exist just to play a role in theirs?” ~ Libba Bray
“What is right is often forgotten by what is convenient.” ~ Bodie Thoene
Awwww, mom, do I hafta go?! Pleeeeaaassse.
Wow. I needed a tantrum. Workday today. Again. We’ve been way busy since the stay at home mandate began. This being Memorial Day weekend, it’s about over the top. I’m all groans, stretches, sighs, and silent whispers. I want my mom as well. I never reckoned I could be 65 years old and still want my mom on occasion. Seems healthy to me. Luckily I believe in the truth of the Ancestors. Mom can walk with me as she wishes. Now would be a good time, mom. All wrung out, tired to the bone. Driven by admiration for my coworkers, who work as hard as I do to make things work. And they do work. I need a feather bed and a 36″ flat screen on the ceiling. And my massage therapist, who I have not seen in over 2 months. Poor me, right? Yeh, right. Okay, I’m done whining. For now. Period. Full stop. I reserve the right to . . . wear a mask. The anti-mask crowd is stirring a giant WTF in my heart. I don’t have to ask what’s wrong with them. They cannot keep their ignorance to themselves. They ooze ignorance. And my nose is chapped from wearing the mask all day at work. Sigh. Groan. Hmmmm, there’s a robin in the apple tree outside the window, where the feeders hang. Last time I was out by my car, the neighbor’s donkey made a sudden honking sound that gave me an instant smile. Then a raven flew over head, croaking away without a care in the world. I think I’ll go with the birds and donkeys today. And caffeine.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
