Words to remember 

The Wise Martian scene from The Martian Chronicles, 1980

Secret? There is no secret. Anyone with a heart can see the way to live. By watching life, observing nature, and cooperating with it. Making common cause with the process of existence. By living life for itself. Deriving pleasure from the gift of pure being.

Life is its own answer. Accept it and enjoy it, day by day. Live as well as possible. Expect no more.

Destroy nothing.
Humble nothing.
Look for fault in nothing.
Leave unsullied and untouched all that is beautiful.
Hold that which lives in all reverence.
For life is given by the sovereign of our universe.
Given to be savored.
To be luxuriated in.
To be respected.


2acatsanddogs__t440This just in: Ladies and gentlemen. Dr. Ben Carson was kidnapped several weeks ago. What you’re seeing is a well put together marionette operated by seven cats. One of them is inside the head meowing while wearing a voice transmogrifying collar. The country has been had. Don’t listen to anything else he says. It will only cause headaches from repeated /facepalms.

We have been assured by the cats’ leader Mr. Tinkles that Dr. Carson is in no danger, he is being fed Fancy Feast out of wine glasses and is now litter box trained. He will be released after the national GOP convention has concluded in the summer of 2016.
