This Week’s Words

A Man of Fewer Words

Those of you who have followed me for a long time (some for 7.5 years) know that, until recently, the weekly posts appeared, like clockwork, at 5 minutes after midnight on Friday night (Eastern Time).  You same loyal followers will have noticed that the posts have been getting later and later in the weekend and even as late as Monday.

What is holding up all 3 weekly posts is the need to come up with something significant in the “This Week’s Words” segment.  My life has been crazy busy lately, and I haven’t had the luxury of having time to compose something meaningful each week.

So, I decided today that in order to get back to “like clockwork” posts, the “This Week’s Words” segment can’t be a regular weekly feature.  I will leave the door open to sharing more “Words” if I have something to say, but for now, only “This Week’s Wisdom” and “This Week’s Photo” will be the regular features you can count on.

This Week’s Wisdom

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.

Excerpt from:  We Were Made For These Times by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

This Week’s Words


My sculpture exhibit at the local library was front-page news in the local paper a week ago.  In two days I will move the exhibit to the library in the next town, where it will be on display for the month of March.  After 40 years as a manuscript editor and course developer, I have a new title.  I am an artist.  Moral of the story: “It’s Never Too Late to Redefine Yourself.”
