Several months ago I dropped my computer. It continued working, so I decided not to worry about it. (I’ll think about that tomorrow, Scarlett says) However, lately it’s gone wonky on me. Big time. It’s now time to pack it up and send it off to Hewlett-Packard for a little rest and recuperation.
Tomorrow I’m letting go. No computer for a week or so. No Facebook, no email, no WordPress. Good for me. I have a garden to tend and a stack of books to read. It could be an enriching experience.
But first I leave you the quotes that are running through me on this gorgeous Spring day at the end of another school year.
A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Albert Einstein
Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. Buddha
