Wise quote.


"Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

Wiser words were never spoken.

wise words yet somehow so hard to follow their simple advice.

Great advice!

Agree with all three of you! I'm trying to start following that advice more seriously, and stop wondering and worrying about the damned future so much, or the 'meaning' of it all. Or to be bitter to have been put here with no instruction manual, no goals. Just going to try to keep my head down and work diligently and conscientiously, and whatever happens, happens. Can't be any worse than living in a perpetual state of existential angst, right?

Righty O Felix

Coco says Righty O Kokomo...and asks me "who's Felix"? She has a lot to learn.

The Future? What's that. Make Today the best ever.

Soon Tomorrow will be Today.

True, very true.

Coco, felix is Latin for "happy" or "lucky" - and Latin is an old, old language that nobody speaks anymore, except in some churches.

You can ask your Mom about all these things. I have a feeling if I explained them you would just keep asking "yeah, but why is THAT?" just the way I did when I was a young kitten. Oops, I mean kid.

Hi Hans! Hope you're being nice to your new sister. Or is she your girlfriend?
