new french patisserie in town
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.”
my spirit animal
Last year, five animal candidates vied for the much sought-after title of Mayor of Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. This important election decided the Zoo’s first Mayor, the highest-ranking animal official who showcased the important role of animal ambassadors. One of the five candidates, (and my favorite), who made it past the primary rounds to the general election was:
Peaches the Nigerian dwarf goat. Peaches is the mother of two sets of triplets and a set of twins. She has raised all the kids on her own, demonstrating her can-do spirit. She’s quiet and friendly unless she needs to assert herself and is rarely in a baaaaad mood.
P.S. Wiggles the Chinchilla got the most votes and won by a hair.
“not voting is not a protest. It is a surrender.”

“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. “
until the election
think, read, listen, ask, talk, learn, know
make your choice
“everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made.
if you want a different result, make a different choice.”
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.”

“does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
either way, a good choice.
