Much like a child busy playing, Lucy pretends not to hear us call her the first, or second, or even third time we call to tell her it's time to go outside in the rain. She hates it despite the towels we put in the dryer to have toasty warm for drying her off.
Even when the room is warm, she curls up into a ball when she comes back inside.
When we have the gas logs burning, her favorite place is near the warm hearth.
Today's quotes are from my favorite philosopher, Marcus Aurelius. Reflect on the first when you are watching the "talking heads" on the 24/7 "news" channels. And reflect on the second as you live your daily life.
"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."
"Concentrate on what you have to do. Fix your eyes on it. Remind yourself that your task is to be a good human being; remind yourself what nature demands of people. Then do it, without hesitation, and speak the truth as you see it. But with kindness. With humility. Without hypocrisy."
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK, EVERYONE
