Thanks for the well-wishes for Bob2. He’s survived the week, at least, despite the fact that the little rocks around his base? Yeah, they’re glued in. But never fear. I will find a way to water him. But not too much.
I got more done last month than I thought I did, looking at numbers instead of feelings of moving forward, but that just goes to show that if I could actually get my brain to turn on every day, I’d get TONS done. So I feel less bad about completely wasting a month, because I didn’t, but I didn’t use the time all that well, either.
Today is a day for crossing things off my to-do list.
Good quote from Howard Thurman, American theologian, clergyman, and activist:
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
Abraham Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg, in an address to Congress, 1959:
Not often in the story of mankind does a man arrive on Earth who is both steel and velvet, who is as hard as rock and soft as drifting fog, who holds in his heart and mind the paradox of terrible storm and peace unspeakable and perfect.
It intrigues me as much because of its truth in Lincoln’s case as because such a character, whether male or female, would be a worthwhile challenge to create.
