Hi Maureen, Adages are in need of addendums. I'm glad you took up the task so aptly. So few words say so much. You say them so nicely. Take care. Earl

Hi Earl, and here I thought I was just being cheeky. Thank you! I have been labeled a word economist here, a word I thought I would never meet. Take care, xomo!

I thought I thought a thought but the thought I thought was not the thought I thought I thought. It seems the thoughts I think I think lead me to rethink the thought I thought I thought And the thoughts I think I think

So true Maureen. I'm horrible at quoting, but something similar was stated: If you are calmly standing there while everyone else is running away screaming; perhaps you aren't aware of the situation. BUT you have written this in a more susinct way. Your words always wield a lot of power Maureen. Thank you.

Yeah. I'm not afraid of bees but I am allergic to the stings. I still walk around barefoot. Not to create the fear before it exists. Thoughts and positive energy against a negativity that doesn't exist. Thanks Maureen.

Perhaps, but you reminded me of going fishing with the guys: filling my head with fears of bears and ornery armed farmers and then they freak out all girlie over a snake in the water... not always afraid of the same things lol Thank you Jeff! xomo

A very wise and truly true sentiment is expressed in this delightful epigram, Maureen. Blessings. :=)
