Tuesday & Wednesday Afternoon


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
DESIDERATA.....
Go placidly amidst the noise and the haste,and remember what peace there may be in Silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud agressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself to others you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career,however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

These are the first parts of Max Ehrmann's piece from 1927. Tomcat contributed it to the 1960's Wisdom Collection. ( I am still creating a TieDye Piece for him ,and also DK). It is gentle wisdom, it used to hang on a plaque in my Grandmothers kitchen- and she was no hippy, but very wise. Later in the piece it speaks about the Universe unfolding as it should....I am in the middle of trying to get The Job that I really want, and so I sit surrounded by papers and I need to get this application process Done. So bear with me, Blogging will be light this week. I am cross-posting a New Post on Thursday here and at Sirens....but feel free to sit and read at the Counter...or visit one another....Friday things should be better...Namaste.

Good luck on the job search Enigma.

Good Luck and hope you get the job!

Daniel said...

Is it a job in Australia? Could we be that lucky? Is it to be our Prime Minister? The one we have is a bit dodgy, you know.

Are you going to replace Condi (whose only asset that I can see is having teeth like a crocodile)? The whole world needs you, Enigma. Have you thought of cloning yourself?

Cheers and good luck!

Jamie said...

Hope all goes well on the job front. The picture is as serene as the words.
