So what if instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

Coffee With a Friend / Weekend Links

“It doesn’t matter where you’re from—or how you feel. There’s always peace in a strong cup of coffee.”
—Gabriel Bá, Daytripper

And if you can have that cup of coffee with a kindred spirit, even better. Today I got to catch up with an old friend over coffee and I’m feeling wonderfully recharged. There’s nothing like spending time with someone who’s known you forever to remind you of who you really are. If you know what I mean.

Tim and the older kids are at Ski Club tonight, so Will, Lily, and I are watching movies. And then it’s supposed to get very, very cold so we’ll be hunkering down for the rest of the weekend. And no school on Monday!

If you have a minute, check out these cool links:

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you next week.

    Many years ago Rudyard Kipling gave an address at McGill University in Montreal. He said one striking thing which deserves to be remembered. http://weddinginvitations4u.net/invite:161209690597847561 Warning the students against an over-concern for money, or position, or glory, he said: “Some day you will meet a man who cares for none of these things. Then you will know how poor you are.”

  3. Reality is nothing but a collective hunch.
