Dogs Are Leaders

Dogs are leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them is making poop, the other one’s carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge.

~Jerry Seinfeld

For What Its Worth

Bon Mot #1

well … I’ll be dipped in axle grease


a bon mot is a clever remark



Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.

Climbing Out Of Bed

Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside – remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.

~Charles Bukowski

“Our incomes are like our shoes; if too small, they gall and pinch us; but if too large, they cause us to stumble and to trip.”

~ John Locke

Okay so

to me, back to normal, when the pandemic is over and done, to some people is scary and worrisome. the life I am living right now is normal. the pandemic never stopped me from going outside, and taking several walks a day. I was careful as to what stores I went to, which was not that many, and I always wore a mask in public and still do to this day. if I am by myself I will either lower it, or take it off, but always will pull it up, and/or put it back on. wearing a mask most of the time doesn’t bother me, though it does at times get sweaty. also I’ve got both vaccine shots, so that’s a plus.

so I live the normal in its present tense, not looking back before the pandemic, as that ship has sailed. as for the future, I’ll live it moment by moment, day by day, etc., etc., and whatever it is, is.

Tuesday Evening

big improvement in the weather here, so i took a long walk. the air was warm, compare to the las two days, with overcast skies and with the wind coming off the ocean, brings the temperature down, but it didn’t stop me from pounding the bricks.

today’s walk was beneficial, as i cleansed my head, and helps keep my sugar under control. in fact, i decided to take another stroll. now that i’m home, i’ll just kick back and relax and start all over tomorrow.

Redistribution Of Wealth

“You are talking to a leftist. I believe in the redistribution of wealth and power in the world. I believe in universal hospital care for everyone. I believe that we should not have a single homeless person in the richest country in the world. And I believe that we should not have a C.I.A. that goes around overwhelming governments and assassinating political leaders, working for tight oligarchies around the world to protect the tight oligarchy here at home.”

~ Abbie Hoffman – Social activist, Chicago Seven participant. Born: November 30, 1936 – Died: April 12, 1989

Simplify Your Life

“Simplify your life. Don’t waste the years struggling for things that are unimportant. Don’t burden yourself with possessions. Keep your needs and wants simple and enjoy what you have. Don’t destroy your peace of mind by looking back, worrying about the past. Live in the present. Simplify!”

~ Henry David Thoreau
