Last week’s post on the subject of lying garnered several thoughtful responses from readers. If you were troubled by the quote I posted that proposed a mature person can lie, I suggest you go to and scroll to the comment section where you can read five bits of wisdom.

While you are there, you will also be treated to a bonus comment interpreting the image.

Thank you if you were one of the people who wrote me, I appreciate hearing from you.

This week’s message is a gentle reminder about feeling grateful. It is an excerpt from Aging for Beginners by Ezra Bayda who says he heard this from a Buddhist teacher. Reading it brought up all kinds of feelings for me. Let me know what it brings up for you.

“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die. So, let us all be thankful.”

Thank you for reading. I am full of gratitude! The image is a unique way of looking at books.
