I’ve been working my butt off so much recently that I very well may have to write today’s post while standing. I’ve been working seven days a week, from early morning to late night, sometimes straight through till the next morning.
After another long stint in front of the computer, I managed to get “outside” for a whole 30 minutes. It was refreshing; the sun was out, the sky was blue, leaves were green and the air smelled distinctly floral. Ahh, the world in 3D.
I had enough time to snap a few photos of some new magnolias. Here’s one image that came out well.
Back to the grindstone…
Words are mere bubbles of water, but deeds are drops of gold.
The superior man is modest in his speech, but excels in his actions.
Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom.
Behind every successful man stands a surprised mother-in-law.
Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.
Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.
Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.
The average dog is nicer than the average person.
…and my current favorite:
There is always a better way.
Codi and I were on our way home from Starbucks yesterday and we snapped a few pictures of the cherry blossoms that are bursting to life all over Lake Oswego. The colors were pretty amazing – bright vibrant pinks, greens and the bluest blue sky ever.
