my favorite indignant complaint of the month
straight from our local ‘next door’ site.
“So half of ann arbor doors are PUSH. But the other half are all PULL. Can’t the CITY make up their minds about anything??? I’m drafting a letter to Governor Whitmer if you want to sign. We can not be expected to remember which is push or which is pull! I am just tired of this. Life is stressful and having to constantly push or, wait, PULL is nonsense at this point.”
“a man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that’s unlocked and opens inwards;
as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push.”

seems an impossible challenge
to make the right choice
yet an impossible challenge
to choose wrong.
“but compared with the task of selecting a piece of french pastry held by an impatient waiter,
a move in chess is like reaching for a salary check in its demand on the contemplative faculties.”
when you choose
to step out of your comfort zone
to dip your lucky charms into ranch dressing
and fully enjoy eating them that way
no matter how others react
that is confidence.
“i have made the choices that work best for me. i know i cannot please everyone, and that’s fine.”
when you put it that way…
it really is no contest.
which way would you go?
“my life has been a magnificent indulgence.”

b tells me these are the ‘options’
for ordering from his coffee/hot cocoa shop
i can certainly appreciate that he has organized it so beautifully.
now that they’re all laid out
it will be much easier to choose.
“it’s easy to make good decisions when there are no bad options.”

“in matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems,
for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same. “
“we are our choices.”

both thoughtful and wonderful gifts
both ways to mark my days
both things i like
which to choose
it’s always good to get a second opinion about what day it is.
think victor hugo would be proud of my skills.
“concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.”
a gate in the hedge
leads the way
is it better
walk on by?
“the world is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck.”
