When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself. ~Louis Nizer, Jewish-American trial lawyer
Despite my love for debate, I don’t enjoy confrontations.
You know, the kind where you have to read somebody the riot act to get them to stop scraping their shoes all over your feelings.
Take the other day, for instance.
Adversity introduces a man to himself. ~Author Unknown
No adversity or social distancing here — I’m just a Robin looking for my lunch (and maybe a mate!)
There once was a germ so scary
We saw it afar and grew wary.
We learned it could kill
And that gave us a chill.
We couldn’t afford to tarry.
We scrambled for supplies at the stores
And hastened to lock our front doors.
We washed our hands clean
And watched as the scene
Unfolded across our land’s shores.
Suddenly new terms arose
Coined by those who were pros —
Anxiety abounds, panic grows.
‘Is this the new normal?’ we ask
As we fasten our protective mask.
Working from home,
Protecting our genome,
What a time-consuming task.
It bears repeating, this refrain.
The truth is oh, so plain —
Our hands we will wash.
This germ we will squash,
And then we can live again.
We are going to have peace even if we have to fight for it. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower, American army general and 34th president of the U.S.
Anybody who knows me knows I love bunnies.
Just not in my flowers.
The two hardest things to handle in life are failure and success. ~Author Unknown
We have a new director for the final half of this semester’s symphonic band (something to do with scheduling, we were told).
At our first practice, she began by praising us for our performance at the previous night’s concert.
So far, so good.
And then the you-know-what hit the fan.
