today's mantra : merrily merrily merrily merrily


row row row your boat
gently down the stream
merrily merrily merrily merrily
life is but a dream



My 70-year-old self and my 12-year-old self
have decided to come together in this guy.

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine."  — Proverbs 17:22


Be the banjoy!
"This is the day which the Lord hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it."

— Psalm 118:24


Once when we were passing each other Swamiji planted himself in front of me and said "You should be happier." I replied "I'm sure you're right, Swamiji. Almost everyone—" Swamiji cut me off: "No! No! YOU should be happier!"



I've noticed that the older I get, the more grateful I become. At this rate pretty soon I'll die from bursting with gratitude.
