Borrowed, Continued

Cookie welcomes you this morning with his CSL* greeting. He has placed his little paws in such a manner as to form a heart saying, "I love you."

Here is the continuation of the cribbed post started yesterday.


16. Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
17. Every one has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.
18. How much deeper would the ocean be without sponges?
19. Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
20. What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
21. I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.
22. Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
23. Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
24. Just remember - if the world didn't suck, we would all fall off.
25. Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Number 23 is the one I find myself quizzically pondering most frequently. Really, I remember my past, and yet I still cannot for the life of me figure out what happened.

I really enjoyed your lists. Also, agree with your observation.

I said: "The theologians really know
their topic; are these people smart like eighty-
one people quite like you together, so
just do like me and pray and trust them, Katie,

their knowledge adds to a tremendous mass
of safe and very holy gravitation!"
– "Oh yes?" said Katie, "What if all that jazz
is very simple at the final station

what do you say? I don't want to be rude
not even really to oppose your mission.
But tacitly this concept may include
an untold power, that's my slight suspicion,

I mean, that Truth was never too complex –
You may say 'God'; the real thing still is Sex!"

Algorithm of Being

To live reactively, responsively, creatively, as an artist, act the way your life forms the best possible narrative, like a novel or a film, towards Death, End of the Story. According to Heidegger, Life is what Is. Sorge. Being kind of your own God? Primacy of Aestethics over Ethics.

(Yeah, I got that spammy comment too. Bugger.)

I LOVE Cookie!! Who else can say their little arms for a heart like that? :)

I'm with ya, pally. I'm going to the doctor today about a foot that I have NO IDEA how I hurt! Is this what I have to look forward too?? Gees, I sound like my grandma!

I was going to comment on 23, but you nailed it, so I'll go to 24. Thank you for explaining that to me. Now I'll have to remember to appreciate why I don't fall off the globe.

Chuck, where'd it go? and wha' happened?

Vee, that dog is superannuated. He won't even do tricks for treats anymore. But he's cute.

Lin, I am gratified that you like Cookie. We know cats are your favorite. And we certainly hope that you have only to look forward to happiness, well-being and long life! I trust that your foot problem will be easily and readily solved.

Shark, isn't physics wonderful?
