Oh, hi. Welcome to my blog. Usually there'd be a joke here, but I've decided to be more spiritual. I thought maybe it was time for me to move closer to the soul of the universe and everything, so no comedy here, nope. I'm on a spiritual quest. Sorry. I'll just mostly be ruminating on the graceful nature of clouds and occasionally expounding on what we can learn from the humble rocks and trees.

Oh, look, there's one of my co-workers. No, I can't talk with them about our annoying colleagues or about how problematic the patrons are. Why? Because I believe those people all have sunshine in their hearts. Let us take a deep breath. Maybe we can help coax their sunshine forward. Did you know Siddhartha once said:

"I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value."

I'm pretty sure he said it in German though. But that doesn't mean I can't learn something from it. Jesus once said:

"The world is an open book, and we are an open book to the world."

Or it might not have been Jesus. It might have been St. Augustine, or possibly Oscar De La Renta. The important thing is that I'm a better, more considerate person today, kinder, purer, and more full of love. It wasn't easy. I have been tempted by the small things. But I have found the place where I am free of want. I am at peace.

I did have one question for god though:

Do I get some kind of prize?

No, I mean, seriously.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
