Me too ….. (1)


“I still catch myself feeling sad about things that don’t matter anymore.”

— Kurt Vonnegut 




Thought of the day

A pigeon sits on a branch reflecting on Existence, a yellow leaf falls from the tree.

A man looking at a mountain faraway doesn’t notice the prettiness of a dandelion at his feet.  A man looking at a dandelion doesn’t see the beauty of a mountain faraway.


Wise Words (2)

It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watch them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd.  

At the time, you don’t think much of it.    

You know, we just don’t recognise the most significant moments of our lives while they’re happening.  

Back then, I thought, “Well, there’ll be other days.”

I didn’t realise that that was the only day.


* Field of Dreams (1989)

Musings (3)

“Sometimes we have to be very careful not to hold on to the wrong things.”

In the bigger picture, they are talking about the wrong things in life — pride, guilt, prejudice, blind loyalty…..things that eventually lead to regrets.

For me, it is the little nothings of life.

The idea of downsizing has been sitting quietly in a corner for a while now.  There is a huge obstacle blocking the move forward.  What do we do with all our earthly, sentimental possessions occupying every room of the house?

A suggestion blew in this morning with the autumn breeze.

Instead of trying to figure out what to get rid of, let’s go into each room and focus on the things we want / need to keep and take with us.

I am not sure.  Do you think this is easier?
