at this point in my life, the day pretty much decides what life I live. I'm not sure how much choice I have in the matter.

Cool the little astronut hanging around.

I keep telling this to my sons but they don't listen. (Dumbasses)

Today I am opening a new theme door for March and focusing on writing for my next book Mona's Work. The source material is a lot like your blog posts Coffee Messiah - before you have organized the wonderful bits:)

Coffee Messiah said...

tom: I understand, but still at the same time, there are doors, we don't think about to open. I know, 'cause I'm ready to open the other one again.

cg: We all learn at different times, 2 B sure.

lettuce: I have learned in small ways, the doors are there, we just need to get outside of our conditioned thinking and open them.

terrill: I look forward to reading them.

I've always thought that people don't realize that what we get is a result of the choices we make. They want to chalk it up to karma or general bad luck.

Hi! C.M.,
Nice mailart...
and a quote that rings so true...
by Flora Whittemore.
(Unfortunately, I'am not familiar with Flora Whittemore, but her quote still ring so true!)
Thanks, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

P.S. C.M.,
I plan to send you an email about some films and snail mail.

Coffee Messiah said...

merle: Although, others sometimes do put a crimp into our outcome, to be sure ; (

dd: Thanks for stopping by. Will be looking 4 U then.........Thanks!

I would love to imagine a door where none exists if only to wonder about what might lie behind it.

To see an envelope with stamps, aha, the original fever for travel.

Why did the world change so much that such envelopes with colourful stamps affixed travel less now. :-)

Sam Juliano said...

How true is Ms. Whittemore's statement? It does remind me of a certain Robert Frost poem called 'The Road Not Taken.' But yes, it's exactly right.

If I can only answer e mails on time, i think I can get my own act together. You are a fair, patient and compassionate man Michael.

And this is an especially attractive lot of poster art.

anil p: Recently, the USPS here is trying to shut down Sat delivery, close stations, raise prices in an attempt to lose less money. Sadly, we here in the usa cry about postal rates, but like a lot of things, they may be still the cheapest rates in the world.

sam: Not to worry. Life doesn't stop so we can look at all the blogs. Appreciate your stopping by when you do though.

Coffee Messiah said...

willow: Oh, you mean cinq cool.

great pics!

love the quote....sometimes we need to push/force ourselves through certain doors to truly realise its worth.

limenlemon: There was an old saying from a president: you have nothing to fear, but fear itself and it is surely true!

Thanks for stopping by!
