Dear Diary Page 23…
Up early and multi-tasking… a cool, windy, cloudy day today, so other than read the weather instruments, indoors for “maintenance Wednesday”… taking a break for the moment, so decided to pop in briefly and leave a note…
All this work reminds me of a poem I found on the internet one day;
Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
to paint a picture, or write a letter,
bake a cake, or plant a seed.
Ponder the difference between want and need.
Dust if you must, but there is not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
Music to hear, and books to read,
friends to cherish and life to lead.
Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
a flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
this day will not come round again.
Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go, and go you must,
you, yourself, will make more dust!

While sorting through some things yesterday, ran across some old cigarette lighters.. Brought back some memories of history’s past of when I smoked, quit cold turkey in 1985…. I can related to those that smoke and try to quit smoking and it brought to mind a song that was popular years back when I was young (Yes, Diary, I know you find it hard to believe but I was young once. :D)..
So will close with that and continue on with another day on the path least traveled…
