  1. Thanks for posting this, techpaul. I really needed reminding life can be good. Sometimes it’s easy to get lost.

    Have a good day.

    • paulandrewrussell,
      Sometimes it’s easy to get lost.

      What a sentence! Six simple words…
      Our modern world can feel overwhelming — hectic; information overload; too many choices; etc.. and it seems there’s never enough hours in the day. (Gather ye rosebuds while ye may…)

      I have said here before, and now is a good time to repeat, one of the best things I ever did for myself was stop watching TV.
      (Though I kind of miss House…)

      Take a class. Read a book. Plant a rose bush. Perform an act of random kindness.
      Make your life extraordinary.

  2. Paul Thanks for this. Comments well said by both of you.

    I have that movie, one of my fav. This is a reminder to take the time watch it again, as well as take out the book, of Walt Whitman poetry, Leaves Of grass.

    “sometimes it’s easy to get lost” so true.

    • Gaia,
      Always a pleasure to see you here.

      When I was young and dumb, I was required to read Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, and didn’t get anything out of it. I was not then, and am not now, a “poetry guy”. But now that I am older, I know my time was not wasted completing my reading assignment.
      Nothing shatters ignorance like reading books.
