Jumping Over Sustained Anxiety

“My spare time is taken up these days observing the domestic arrangements of geese. I feel that I understand their world thoroughly.” – Flannery O’Connor

“The punishment of every disordered mind is its own disorder.”― St. Augustine of Hippo, Confessions

“Our stresses, anxieties, pains, and problems arise because we do not see the world, others, or even ourselves as worthy of love. (9)”― Prem Prakash, The Yoga of Spiritual Devotion A Modern Translation of the Narada Bhakti Sutras

“Relax; the world’s not watching that closely. It’s too busy contemplating itself in the mirror.”― Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes

“I am at the moment writing a lengthy indictment against our century. When my brain begins to reel from my literary labors, I make an occasional cheese dip.” ― John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.” ― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”― Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Tonight’s musical offering:

“Beginnings” – Leonid & Friends (Chicago cover) – better enhanced with headphones on, volume cranked, knowing these are Russians covering this American classic, maybe even better that Chicago could do

Crack on now…dig it, and jump over those sustained anxieties – if only for a few moments.
