Chocolate

Take a Piece of Candy and Figure It Out

Happiness depends upon ourselves.

— Aristotle

I wrote previously about my habit of taking a piece of chocolate and putting it in the freezer.  Once it was in the freezer, I felt “safe” that, if worse came to worse, I had a piece of chocolate that I could eat in an emergency.  Don’t ask me what the emergency would be, I haven’t a clue.  But, there it was, my chocolate backstop.

As a matter of fact, last week, on my way to a meeting that was scheduled for a couple of hours and that had 10-15 minutes of relevance for me, I grabbed a Continue reading » Take a Piece of Candy and Figure It Out

Hi folks!  We’re out celebrating Labor Day, but we haven’t forgotten you.  This week we offer three old favorites for your reading enjoyment.  We’ll be back next week with more new posts.

How can you streeeetch to become more flexible?

A friend of mine has become a serious part-time nature photographer. After having worked for several years in a highly left-brain technical field, he has put both sides of his brain together to create some beautiful art. In picking his equipment, he focused on all the technical doohickeys that make what he has great. Once he’s out in the wild, he gets caught up in the wonder of nature and records it at the rate of many frames per second. Then, he chooses which pictures of the many hundreds he took are suitable for publishing.

Staying Young in Spirit

The purpose of life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave with a well-preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, completely used up, yelling and screaming, what a ride!

— Anonymous

Everywhere I turn, there are reminders that I am getting older – and now that I’m nearing another milestone birthday, one with a zero at the end (No, I’m not 100.), I’ve become very aware of the number of friends and acquaintances who have died.  I also notice that some of my friends have started avoiding new things – declaring the past to be the “good ol’ days” and wishing that they could go back.  We can’t go back and to be honest, I sometimes get a bit Continue reading » Staying Young in Spirit

Talking to Ourselves

The words that we carry in our minds are able to change any moment.

— John Ortberg

Everything I have ever done has been in spite of my view of myself.  Over time, I’ve learned that by putting the right words in my mind, I can greatly increase my flexibility and creativity.  I can improve my view of myself, at least temporarily.

Many years ago, when I was working for Big Business, my manager announced Continue reading » Talking to Ourselves

Help Me, I Think I’m Turning Into My Mother

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

— Flora Whittemore

I describe myself as a recovering Catholic, though I’m never sure exactly what that means.  For the first 20 or so years of my life, I was a devoted Catholic.  As a matter of fact, I knew almost nothing about any other Christian denomination.  Having been the only “goy” family in the neighborhood, I knew that there were Catholics and Jews, and on a practical level that was all I knew.

I’d been baptized shortly (minutes) after I was born, so that if, heaven forbid, I were to die, at least I wouldn’t end up in limbo. (At the time, limbo wasn’t a dance, it was where unbaptized babies went if they died.  They could never leave limbo because they didn’t have the appropriate “certification” by the Church to go to heaven, but at least they wouldn’t Continue reading » Help Me, I Think I’m Turning Into My Mother
