My horoscope this week is full of quotes from fellow Gemini, Ralph Waldo Emerson. Banality or profundity? You decide.
FIRST: All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
SECOND: What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered.
THIRD: He who is not every day conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.
FOURTH: Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
ADDED: Apropos of my recent bent (but not of this post specifically), I was thinking about Oprah just now (as one does). She had celebrities on talking about depression this week. PS? Celebrity does not confer intelligence or insight. I know. News flash. Anyway, one common thread weaved through the discussion was that withdrawal was a common sign of depression. Now I don't think I'm clinical or anything, but I just realized that since work ended Saturday morning, I haven't spoken to a single person outside of the service industry. Huh. Oh wait, I forgot. A woman from my office called on Saturday afternoon. To fix me up with her sister.
FURTHERMORE: You know those CarePages that update you on the condition of a sick person? Well, I'm subscribed to one that tells me how a young child with leukemia is doing. She is the daughter of an old college friend who I haven't spoken with in almost 20 years. Initially I linked to the page at the e-urging of another mutual college friend. Anyway, I get email updates all the time now. Today I tried to unsubscribe. It's just too much for me right now. Only the unsubscribing was so many steps that I couldn't be bothered. Yay me, huh?
FINALLY: OK, that was all a little "poor me" and "cry for help" there at the end. Mea culpa. I'm fine, actually. Thanks. Still, I'd take a hug.
