Plethora of Pajamas in Public Places

A Louisiana parish, according to AP reports, is considering a ban on wearing pajamas in public.A parish commissioner, while visiting Walmart, saw young men in p.j.s, and apparently got a peek at some private parts one would associate more with Chippendales than with Walmart’s chips and salsa aisle.Starved for news on the lighter side, this story attracted my rapt attention and at least ten minutes of deep introspection....more

What are the three unavoidable expenses of travel?1) Transportation2) Accommodation3) FoodNow what if, in order to not pay the first two, you were forced to spend your days in tropical splendor visiting the remote places completely inaccessible to common travelers?  Places that see, maybe, 100 'outsiders' in a year?  These are simply not places you can get to any other way but on a small sailing yacht.

     When you hate yourself, you can't love me or anyone else.  I have watched you since we were kids hating who you were and the way you felt, trying to repress who you really are.  No matter how hard you stuff, the soul can't be kept down.  It's time to stop stuffing and be who you are, even if that person is not who I'd hoped you would be.  It's going to be hard, but I love you.  The real you. It will be nice to see you fly again. ...more

Drama "less"...

Donna, what if I told you that your every conflict, disappointment, struggle or challenge, with others or yourself, was merely a manifestation of what's going on within your own thinking... would you go there first to fix, mend, and allay? Yeah, you might miss the drama. The Universe. This was my morning message from the Universe today :) Fairly appropriate at this point in my life. ...more
