I've been incognito.

Not really.  I've been really, really busy and besides, I just like saying the word, "incognito".



Go ahead, say it, I'll wait...

You did, didn't you?  I knew you would.

Cool word, yes? *smile*giggle*shrug*

Do you have a fav' word that you like the way it sounds, the way it feels when you say it, the way it rolls off your tongue?

Is this getting weird?  I digress.

Moving on...


To this:


I know, crazy right?

Meet, "Salty".  She's our Schnoodle.

Go ahead, say it, I'll wait...  



See?  Fun.  Now, aren't you glad you stopped by? *chuckle*

Well, I'm glad you did.  Seriously.  

And I want to take this moment to say, "thank you", another favorite word of mine, for your kind words regarding my last post when I kinda let my guard down about this flurry of loved ones suddenly taking flight and heading heaven bound.

I'm better now, thanks to you.


I came upon this long ago and saved it because I liked it.

And things I like or love, I share with those I like, or love.

So without further adieu...


Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble, it's a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be.

And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
