"Rabbit's clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."
"And he has Brain."

the greatest fear of humankind,
and death the greatest unknown.

is a powerful beginning.

"Yes, I don't know, and yes, I am afraid."

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.

Give your time and efforts freely or not at all.
When you are tempted to say,

to make the free-will gift,
"I'd love to watch your game today, Sandy,"
or the honesty to decline the request gracefully.
Martyrdom doesn't create happiness
for any of the parties involved.
An honest, "No" is preferable to a coerced "Yes."

as a people, will get to the promised land.
