Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Michael of "If you're going through Hell, keep going." tagged me with an award. I don't like to accept awards because I usually don't merit them. I really don't deserve this one. Blogging is something I do to keep my brain functioning. Obviously, that isn't working out all that well. But, in blogging, I have found a number of interesting people with wildly diverse perspectives on life. I have made a few friends, I might have made a couple of enemies, I have learned much, I hope I have taught a little. This is, after all, what life is all about.

Blogging is about life and how we view it.

The aims of this award:

* As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging.
* To seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
* Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it.
* Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award.
* Answer the award's question by writing the reason why you love blogging.
* Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like.
* Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.


Now, I don't like to "tag" people. I see it as a kind of involuntary servitude. It is an obligation even as it is a compliment. What I will do instead is refer you to my list.

They make me laugh, make me think, remind me to feel, sometimes annoy me. But all love blogging and I visit them regularly. You can see the list to the right in my OBTF (Other Blogs To Follow) panel. I don't wish to slight any of them, they are all worthy of this award, so I could not single any out. Visit as many as you can, leave a comment (we live for comments), and tell them Douglas sent you.
