One more cup of coffee should do it, right? Then I can get started on what needs to be done around here. Just one more cup of coffee. And sharing my world while I have that coffee.
Do guns protect people or kill people? Or both? In the proper hands, guns protect people. Sometimes while they protect, they kill. In the wrong hands, they just kill people. I am not a big proponent of having guns, or at least not the big automatic, powerful guns. If you want to hunt, then do it like it was done before those automatic rifles were in production. If you feel the need for self-protection, a 22 does as well as anything bigger. May I also suggest a baseball bat beside your bed, if you really feel that need?
Is it more important to be respected or liked? Considering the experience we’re having these days with our political “leader(s)”, I’d say respect matters most. There’s no chance I’ll like someone if I don’t respect them, but there’s a chance I might like them if I do respect them. As for myself – you like me or not, but I hope you’ll respect me.
Is having a big ego a negative or positive trait? (yeah I know. Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile) I think it requires a certain amount of ego/self-confidence to succeed. However, just like sugar in your coffee, too much is awful.
Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning? I don’t know. I think death is the end of life as we know it – what happens next remains to be seen. I don’t think anyone knows for sure, because, I mean, no one ever comes back to tell us about it, do they? Okay, for those of you who believe in reincarnation, you take it from here.
It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have. Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing. So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please! Do share! Thanks! I am grateful to be alive and know that I am “on restriction”. I am grateful to have neighbors that pitch in when needed. I am grateful to be able to communicate from a distance with family and friends. I am grateful for sunshine, grass that is greening, daffodils that are blooming, and the summer ahead.
Because despite the horrors of our world right now, I have enough. What more could one need?
But where the heck is my stimulus payment!?
