Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell. -Edward Abbey, naturalist and author (29 Jan 1927-1989).
“Golf is a good walk spoiled.”
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Baggage Check.”
Simple men and women and children.
That’s the story of each human’s life.
Decisions based on past experiences,
decisions that will affect our futures.
Yet, what’s that saying again,
“If you forget history, you are condemned to repeat it.”
Hell, I’m confused, perplexed, stupefied, paralyzed!
“The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.”
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Nightmares.”
Can’t remember watching a horse race at night.
Except maybe in a late night movie.

“Grief is an artist of powers as various as the instruments upon which he plays his dirges for the dead, evoking from some the sharpest, shrillest notes, from others the low, grave chords that throb recurrent like the slow beating of a distant drum. Some natures it startles; some it stupefies. To one it comes like the stroke of an arrow, stinging all the sensibilities to a keener life; to another as the blow of a bludgeon, which in crushing benumbs.”
~Ambrose Bierce, The Boarded Window.
“When you make a world tolerable for yourself, you make a world tolerable for others.”
