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.

Mornin' muse

I was remiss this morning and had nothing to post. Or, to be more accurate, I was remiss yesterday when I should have written something to post this morning. Instead, I just lolled in my recliner and drifted in and out of sleep. I like to think of that as "recharging my batteries." I should stop that, it makes me sound like some kind of mechanical gadget.

When we sleep, we do not really invigorate ourselves, do we? Considering the way I feel after a night's sleep, I'd say it is more like over-exerting myself.... and then being pounded into submission by some bully. Even my mental cobwebs have cobwebs.

It now takes me two cups of coffee to get going in the morning. That's double my normal routine.

It sucks to get old...
