Words can be twisted into any shape.

Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.

So, had you noticed? - I've been plagued with terminal lethargy for the past week or so, unable to do anything, write anything, think anything very much.

Today, it was snowing and there was a bitter easterly wind.

93.7% of me didn't want to go for a ride on the forest. 100% of Alfie agreed with me - that pony has his share of common-sense and self-preservation.

The 6.3% that made me go was a sanity-saver.

My toes froze, my fingers froze, my face froze BUT spirit lifted

and took flight!

There really isn't anything to beat taking actions instead of getting stuck in your head having meaningless conversations with yourself.
