Poem of the Day ~ Prisms


Laura Riding Jackson

What is beheld through glass seems glass.

The quality of what I am
Encases what I am not,
Smooths the strange world.
I perceive it slowly
In my time,
In my material,
As my pride,
As my possession:
The vision is love.

When life crashes like a cracked pane,
Still shall I love
Even the slight grass and the patient dust.
Death also sees, though darkly,
And I must trust then as now
Only another kind of prism
Through which I may not put my hands to touch.



Joke of the Day

Joe: “I took my 4 year old son shopping with me. When we got home. I discovered he stole a candy bar.”

Pete: “What did you do?”

Joe: We  drove back to the mall and went into a jewelry store.”

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ You Are Essential

There’s an old story of three bricklayers who were asked what they were doing. “I’m laying brick,” said the first. “I’m making a wall,” said the second. The third worker smiled and said, “I’m building a cathedral.” ~ Source

NOTE: Whatever your role in life it is essential. Without you playing your role to the fullest the rest of us would be greatly diminished. Each role, no matter how great or small, is important and deserves dignity and respect. My mom and dad worked at small rolls. My dad worked in a shoe factory, as a bartender, and janitor. My mom worked cleaning houses and in shoe factories. They taught me to respect both the work and the worker.

Positive Thought of the Day ~ Remember the Good Times

“Write your Sad times in Sand,
Write your Good times in Stone.”

NOTE: What wonderful advice from George Bernard Shaw. When we let our sad moments disappear like the morning dew we create room tor our memories of good times to rise to the top. These are the memories that are our reservoir of strength to navigate our way through life. 

Health Tip of the Day ~ Slow it Down

5 Reasons to Eat More Slowly

    1. Better Digestion: Eating slowly allows your digestive system to process food more efficiently, reducing the risk of indigestion, heartburn, and other digestive issues. When you eat quickly, you tend to swallow air along with your food, which can cause discomfort and bloating.
    2. Improved Satiety: Eating slowly gives your brain time to register that you’re full, which can help you avoid overeating and promote weight loss. When you eat quickly, you’re more likely to eat past the point of fullness, which can lead to unwanted weight gain.
    3. Enjoyment of Food: Eating slowly allows you to savor the flavors and textures of your food, making your meal more enjoyable. You’ll also be more mindful of the experience of eating, which can help you develop a healthier relationship with food.
    4. Better Hydration: Eating slowly helps you drink more water, which is important for staying hydrated and maintaining optimal bodily functions. When you eat quickly, you tend to drink less water, which can lead to dehydration.
    5. Reduced Stress: Eating slowly can help you reduce stress and anxiety by promoting relaxation and mindfulness. When you eat quickly, you’re more likely to feel rushed and stressed, which can negatively impact your mental and emotional well-being.
