Time

I used to be better at saying ‘no’.
It’s just that I like to say ‘yes’.
The problem that happens when I say ‘yes’ too quickly, and without a prayer, I say ‘no’ to that which I would not choose to say ‘no’ to otherwise.
Lord, may I be given the sense to say ‘no’ to the good things that would displace the best. Teach me to know what is best. Show me the way.
Thanks.

Not Fresh Enough

I wonder what I will eat for dinner. I have been thinking, I should increase the amount of fresh produce I consume. I could go for a big salad right now. I used to really like Fresh Choice for salad, but the last time I went, I saw some tofu with brownish dried corners on it, and lost my appetite for the restaurant, especially since their prices have gone up. Ah, if only there were a good Fresh Salad buffet in Antioch, I am afraid I might have to revert much of my wife dating to that location. Well, I have to go.

I don’t like junk mail.

Businesses send mail to me, pretending to be already in a business relationship with me. They put phrases like, “about your mortgage” or warn “Federal Law Prohibits tampering with …blah blah blah”. After opening the envelope, I discover: a credit card application with a 4 inch zero % printed on it with a small asterisk* which symbolically says,” We want to deceive the naiive while being legally sound”. Without junk mail, I may get an envelope of time-worthy mail every two or three days otherwise. The newspaper-thick bundle of ads and coupons which confuses the stack of mail is less desirable. The price of waste collection has just gone up for me also, so I suppose that is why I am reminded of print advertisement’s impact on my household alone. I think I would like if the post office had such an effective filtering system as did google’s gmail beta web application. I am not an email purist, by any means, but I do enjoy the benefits of efficiency and frugal innovation. If hand-delivered mail was only hand written, I would look forward to it like I did as a child. The concept of the pen pal is one which seems to be lost now. I think I will write a letter now, or when I get a moment.look at my art- here

Mo-Blog #1

I am writing my first mo blog today. I downloaded the free program written for the palm os called plogit.
I had a tough time figuring it out, but was able to get it to work, once I found the info button on the application, and actually read the directions, I was finally done! How liberating! Now I just need a something notable to say.
