Morning -

The fog slipped in, in the night. It is cold and gray. Tiger is asleep here on the desk and Bella is sleeping on the bed.

I think courtesy is key in life, so I am surprised one would choose to make a living through the idea of revenge. Does revenge make one feel better? I believe there are channels to report businesses that are unethical. I am baffled by this.

I think of the words of
George Herbert:

"He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass."



I enjoy the columns of Mark Morford. I think we are all aware at this point that no one has a totally full-proof safety net in this life, but many of us seem to agree that it works a little better when we pool resources and recognize that "it could happen to us."

Here is Terry Pratchett:

Leo Tolstoy:

“The aim of an artist is not to solve a problem irrefutably, but to make people love life in all its countless, inexhaustible manifestations. If I were told that I could write a novel whereby I might irrefutably establish what seemed to me the correct point of view on all social problems, I would not even devote two hours to such a novel; but if I were to be told that what I should write would be read in twenty years’ time by those by who are now children and that they would laugh and cry over it, and love life, I would devote all my own life and all my energies to it.”
