So a local car dealer is apparently running short of previously owned cars and wants to buy ours back offering a good trade in value for it toward a new car. They would even offer a good financing package over the difference between our used car and a new one. Ah, that was a laughable attempt at trying to drum up business for the dealership.

Hmm, what other news is there? It seems like I wanted to put something else in here the other day, but didn't have time then.

Who knows and why bother? Ignorance and apathy wrapped up into question form. My cup overflowth with the bounty of that double blessing wrapped within its trap of careless laziness.

Oh, I remember now. I uncovered a quote that I wanted to put here; "Deciding how to decide is one of the biggest challenges we'll face." I took that from a book by Patricia Wiklund, PH.D.

Ah, when I first stumbled over that quote, I thought I had somewhere to go with it. Right now my mind is clouding things with other issues that aren't germane here. So if I want to practice mindfulness and give my full attention to what I'm doing, I guess I should move on to the tasks that the gathering mental clouds which threaten a thought strike are leading me toward. I'm mentally deafened enough with thunderous echoes from other thought strikes in the mental murk that is my mind.

Stay warm, all. :)

Love the quote. So true.

It brought to mind, however, TS Eliot's poem "Prufrocks Lovesong" (sp?). (GREAT poem, one of my favorites..you should read it!)

I remember a line in that poem about life's decisions and indecisions that in just a second's time, fate can change.

...Or something like that. I've obviously got my share of mental murk going on too. =/

I'm not familiar with that poem.

Then again Old Possum's Book of Cats is about all I'd know off the top of my head from TS Eliot. Robert Frost is more my poet of choice.

Anyway, I'll try looking up your Eliot poem sometime. Thanks for the suggestion. :)
