soulless eyes, crimson grimace.
I really hate clowns.”

Please permit me a moment to rant about the recent changes to the WordPress online editing environment: IT SUCKS!! Give me back a functional HTML tab and put back the formatting buttons. I far more prefer the versions from ages past; it’s really awful to create a blog post now. 😦 Thank you. I return you to your original ponderings.

The Successful Life

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
— Bessie Anderson Stanley

Let It Go

When your mind is numb and frozen from grief, it’s normal to want to smack those who summarily insist, “everything happens for a reason.” And there are probably some instances where it’s healthy to actually do so. Let it go.
