Currie's Gratitude 21 January 2014

Don't write anything you can phone. Don't phone anything you can talk. Don't talk anything you can whisper. Don't whisper anything you can smile. Don't smile anything you can nod. Don't nod anything you can wink.   [Earl Long] 

The other day I found myself in a discussion about athletes using drugs sending emails. It wasn’t but a few seconds BEfore I realised that the context was convoluted. The fact is, the World today is one of emails and drugging and what can BE proven to BE true and what can BE got away with.

I had another conversation yesterday about how kids Nowadays are so much LESS free than I was when I was a child. Again the convolution struck me.

Life is. Or, as many say, I included, It Is What It Is. But that does NOT mean we just sit down and let it BE what it will BE and never give it another thought. BEcause, Life is NOT going to go backward.

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions - the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment.  [Samuel Taylor Coleridge]

I think winks and smiles and tiny nods are some of the kindest and most treasured gifts we can give or receive.

I love you, Currie

Yes, that's true. But I still think writing, phoning, and talking are better--LOL! :)
