IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Drinking 'Near Beer' is like going to a house of prostitution to listen to the piano player. ~Steve B.
Today I am grateful...
  • that I can read, write and do arithmetic...that I have an education
  • that I survived a two hour meeting with clients in a house with no air conditioning. It had to be over 100 degrees in there.
  • that today I will deliver three entries to the Lawndale Art Center's "The Big Show"
  • that I have never experienced steroid rage. My rage came from natural sources!
  • that I can participate in the world in a fairly sane manner
Even if you are forced to go through life weighed down by some inescapable misfortune or handicap and yet live each day as it comes with poise and peace of mind, you have succeeded where most people have failed. You have wrought a greater achievement than a person who rules a nation. ~Twenty-Four Hours a Day
