Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Hit the Reset Button

So many electronic devices have reset buttons - that little button one may push to start the whole thing over, turn it off and restart, undo something wrong.

Why can't life? Have a reset button, I mean. Make a mistake, no biggie - one may reset if one wishes, although one will lose everything to date, so it bears careful consideration.

Maybe I'd rather have a refuel button, one which allows me to refill my empty tank.

Next week, I'll be at an even called Rites of Spring, up in Mass. I've never been, but I'm keen to go, to relax and have no concert, no workshops, no obligations, just time to reset my spirit, reload it, refresh it, and maybe spend a little quality time with my Gods in the woods, getting some answers.

How do you reset/ refresh? Or do you need to? Am I alone in this?

Oh yea, a refresh every now and then is a VERY welcome thing.

Being the music/wrestling junkie that I am, I lock myself in my room and away from the world at large, and spend an entire day watching old wrestling matches and/or listening to music I love. Sometimes I even drag myself out to the woods with flute and drum in hand and play to the rhythm that mother nature provides.

Have fun at R.O.S, I hope you find the things you are looking for.

Hail the Gods!
Hail Peace!
