“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
~ Steve Jobs
“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.”

Let’s hope we never have to go through again, with the clowns that was occupying the White House.
“Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed.”

can.” I took out

a mustache on
“Here you go.”
He said, “I wanted
to know if you had
change for a $10.00
bill, not deface it.”
“Oh” I say to the
man. Silly me.
Then he called
me an asshole.
“Yup” I told
him, and have

I changed the name of my blog. It is something I’ve been wanting to do for sometime. For the past 2-3 days, I was jotting down different titles, and then went through the process of elimination. Friday night, I changed it to: “A Wandering Mind,” but after looking at it and thinking about it, changed it to : “A Pondering Mind.” So, “Don in Massachusetts” is history.
