Just keep swimming...

The school year is fast approaching and some new and not so new challenges are ahead.
Here is some wisdom to help along the way.
Usually I look like the one on the left, but sometimes that's me on the right.

The Holy Fathers and the Saints always tell us, "It is important to get up immediately after a fall and to keep on walking toward God." Even if we fall a hundred times a day it does not matter; we must get up and go on walking toward God without looking back. What has happened has happened-it is in the past. Just keep on going, all the while asking for help from God.

Have a seat

I recently realized on a little introspection, (well actually it was looking at my pictures from the fair last year), that I have an affinity for chairs.  Yup, you read it right. I like chairs. In fact, I really like chairs. Chairs of all types, sizes, shapes, really doesn't matter. For some unknown reason, I like chairs. It's not anything creepy, just a real appreciation for this type of furniture.

I sometimes wonder what it was like when someone invented the first chair. The earliest would of been stools like tree stumps, logs and rocks. When someone figured they could make it light and mobile, what a stunning revelation? Simple and yet how much we take these for granted? A comfortable place to sit. It's important. This is what is considered organic in chair design now.
