Yeehah!!!!!! Not that I don't want to go back: I do. I'm really looking forward to building on the new skills that I have learned: there is so much that I have to learn......
Anyway, this isn't a long post. I have another one in mind that I will compose later. I am listening to Sinead O'Connor at the moment. I love her heartfelt, headstrong forthrightness. And her voice is a gift from within. She quotes the serenity prayer at the beginning of her album:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Evidently, this is the Alcoholics Anonymous adaptation of this well known piece of prose. I thought that it very old, but Wikipedia gives credit to Reinhold Niebuhr, who used it in a sermon in 1934.
Wiki also offers a juxtaposition by W.W. Bartley, with a Mother Goose rhyme, written about 1695:
- For every ailment under the sun
- There is a remedy, or there is none;
- If there be one, try to find it;
- If there be none, never mind it.
Maybe I'm more like the Mother Goose rhyme.... Yeah... take God out of the equation..... or not..... because that makes me responsible........ Meh......
Too much time on my hands.......
Too much time to think.........
Did I mention that I'm on holidays?????????????????????????
Hmmmm..... you might get sick of a relaxed Blogmuggle...... I'll be back later.
