April 24: Thoughts for the Day

It’s stunning, sometimes, to realize how wonderful one can feel sitting on a deck under a canopy of trees, being caressed by a gentle cool breeze. That was yesterday. And stunning was magnified by the fact that the restaurant upon whose deck we were sitting was lakeside. I offer my thanks for the experience to Mother Nature, the staff of El Jimador, and my favorite wife.

    My good friend and his favorite Amore in “Wander-lust”!!!

    “However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man’s abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace.”

I wish you would tell me what you think about this post...
