I’m one of those wannabe stoic types. Guilty. And yes, I watch stoic videos on YouTube. Isn’t that such a silly thing when we think about it? YouTube should be the last place on earth a person should learn stoicism. Just getting on YouTube is entering a world of distraction and emotion and nonsense. OrContinue reading “STOIC”
Oh, those dreaded Mondays! I read a book once about Mondays and dreading work. At the time, it was called “48 Hours to the Work You Love.” It’s now called “No More Dreaded Mondays” or maybe even “No More Mondays.” Ironically, it’s hard work to get to the don’t-have-to-work phase of life.

I’ve often wondered what it would be like to be a snailContinue reading “SNAILS”

If we dig deeper, we’ll most likely find that those who come across as laid-back and carefree have achieved that disposition – that accomplishment – through the diligent design ofContinue reading “Have to Work”
If my memory serves me right, I first saw Sea Monkeys in an ad in the back of a comic book, alongside X-Ray glasses and the like. The idea of having little human-like underwater creatures as pets sounded too good to be true. And, of course, it was. Yet, for all the disappointment of whatContinue reading “SEA MONKEY”
