Tuesday musings – 11/27/2012

I’m a bad blogger. I’ve not only neglected my own blog, I’ve also gotten behind on the blogs I follow. I’m working to change that.

In the meantime:

“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” — Theodore Roosevelt

“Work is love made visible.” — Khalil Gibran

“To find joy in work is to discover the fountain of youth.” — Pearl S. Buck

Thank you.

Thank you to all who have served or are currently serving in the military throughout the world.


In Flanders Fields – John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Plan B

If Mitt Romney gets elected, is joining the Peace Corps or teaching English overseas a better contingency plan for me?
