Susie and I are suffering from some horrid sickness.  It struck Sunday morning, and though we spent half the weekend in bed, with one short trip out to buy a gallon of OJ, we’re just as sick today.

I feel like I’m about 20% phlegm, and Susie’s reporting more like 33%.

In an odd and unfortunate synchronicity, our next door neighbour decided today would be the perfect day to chain saw branches of his tree, one by one.  So it’s not like I can get much sleep, which is why I’m blogging.

Owning a business together, it’s especially tough to get sick together.  And Susie’s usually so good at taking care of me when I’m knocked flat, that I kinda don’t know how to deal with having to take care of myself.

Rachael told me to try “Cold FX” and “Extreme C” or something like that; I’m sure it’ll help a bunch.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”
