Seeds of Deeds

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. (KJV) ( Proverbs 11:30 )

Has someone done something thoughtful for you lately? Have they gone out of their way for you? It’s easy to keep moving on or get busy and forget about recognizing them. However, it’s important to express to them your grateful heart. Put a little thought into how you want to express your gratitude through friendship.

Moment of Zen: Sauna

When I was in graduate school, we had a great gym at the university and I used to love to go to the sauna and relax after a hard workout.


Need to Do

I have to admit, I haven’t gotten as much work done at my job as I needed to get done this week. I’ve been working on other stuff. I know I should focus on my job when at work, but there is so much to do. I can’t get it all done when I get home from work. Some days I’m just too tired. I will work extra hard today and try to get caught up.

Tomorrow, I will be going to an art museum for my museum class. I think I’ve mentioned that I have to go to a different type of museum each week, and this week is an art museum. I will be heading up to Burlington to visit the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art. The Fleming is supposed to have quite an interesting collection.


Long Week

I was thinking last night that it’s been a long week. Then I realized that it was only Wednesday. I think I almost cried. Luckily, there are only two days left in the week. Work has been very busy, and what other time I have has been spent reading for my class. I’m behind in watching The Voice. It’s okay though, all of my favorites have been eliminated. Now we are down to my second tier folks. I haven’t gotten to vote because I didn’t watch the shows live. Work will be busy today. One thing I have to do is work on the paper that I am presenting at a conference next month. I have to edit it down from 25 minutes to 10-12 minutes. That’s half my paper. I’m so bummed. I had a really good paper, but it’s just too long. I also, and shhh because it’s not actually part of my job, but I need to write my assignment for my class this week. I’ve gotten most of it written, it just needs a few more things. So I’ve got those two things plus I still need to edit some more oral histories and I’ve got some emails that I have been putting off that need to be sent. There is just too much to do and not enough hours in the workday.


Goodbye, Mrs. Bush

Barbara Bush, the widely admired wife of one president and the fiercely loyal mother of another, died Tuesday evening. She was 92.

During her husband’s 1992 presidential campaign, Barbara Bush stated that abortion and homosexuality are personal matters and argued that the Republican Party platform should not take a stand on them, saying that “The personal things should be left out of, in my opinion, platforms and conventions.” Her personal views on abortion were not known, although her friends reported at that time that she “privately supported abortion rights.” She explained, “I hate abortions, but I just could not make that choice for someone else.”

Not everyone liked her because she was outspoken and loyal to her family, but I always thought of her as a true lady who spoke her mind.


The Mock Song

The Mock Song

BY JOHN WILMOT, EARL OF ROCHESTER

I swive as well as others do,

I’m young, not yet deformed,

My tender heart, sincere, and true,

Deserves not to be scorned.

Why Phyllis then, why will you swive,

With forty lovers more?

Can I (said she) with Nature strive,

Alas I am, alas I am a whore.

Were all my body larded o’er,

With darts of love, so thick,

That you might find in ev’ry pore,

A well stuck standing prick;

Whilst yet my eyes alone were free,

My heart, would never doubt,

In am’rous rage, and ecstasy,

To wish those eyes, to wish those eyes fucked out.

John Wilmot (1 April 1647 – 26 July 1680) was an English poet and courtier of King Charles II‘s Restoration court. The Restoration reacted against the “spiritual authoritarianism” of the Puritan era. Rochester was the embodiment of the new era, and he is as well known for his rakish lifestyle as his poetry, although the two were often interlinked. He died at the age of 33 from venereal disease.


Cold

I have a bit of a cold, so I went to bed early last night.


Work

And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. (KJV) ( Genesis 2:15 )

Do you dread Monday mornings? Work was God’s first task to humans in the Garden of Eden. God didn’t give us work to make us trudge along in our days. He did it so we could receive joy from our accomplishments, seek Him, and bring glory to His name. If you don’t find what you are doing to be a labor of love, try changing your attitude. Or try changing your circumstances.

Dinner

I had a reception and dinner to attend last night at the university. So no real post today because I didn’t get in until late.
