Good Morning Digital Friends & Neighbors! Hello again patrons and members of Rubin Report, Phetasy, Triggernometry & Padre's! Happy Sunday Bigots, Phamily, Refugees, Fascinating People, Dawn Patrol, Early Birds & Triggeratti! Whoever or whereever you roam, I am thankful our encoutner happened here, be it through a read on a post or actual interaction with you though reponses or perhaps a ☕Chat Zoom or perhaps something the Creators hosted.
In Cath-O-land it is the 1st Sunday of Advent and the begining of a new litrugical year. New beginnings are a great thing, you don't need a new year or a reason to have one. The challange always seems to be the building upon those new days, their constant renewal and potential growth to some goal, ideal, unrelaized dream or hope for what your lasting tomorrow might be. You can't live a life of growth with nothing but new beginnings nor can you live of life with no new beginnings as your morph into a living fossil. I guess some have done one or the other extreme and probably reaped the dissastifaction such attitudes tend to engender. Perhaps some have no follow through for the building of habits or the desire to examine life in such a way as to solitic change & growth. I tend to hope the vast majority of people fall in the middle but suffer distraction or preoccupation that prevent them from opening the invitation. Well, I am sure I could ramble on longer, but why torture you when I can save that for my captive parishioners? 😉🤣 On to the morning quote and the last of the Thanksgiving images from Leyendecker & Rockwell. I am sure they will return as we near Christmas. Happy Sunday Friends!
The bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendour of beauty,
for yesterday is but a dream,
and tomorrow is only a vision.
But TODAY well-lived makes
every yesterday a dream of happiness
and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
FROM THE SANSKRIT
Hey @SEPTUAGENARIAN, hope they make you smile
Thank you @MinaH for the posting by Neil Oliver, scroll down to find it. It is worth the 10 minutes it takes. I offer my feedback on on the issue of trust and forgiveness.
Long but very worthwhile analysis of the gaslighting of the last two years and a path forward after the narrative collapses, or more likely pivots as is often the case.
Good Morning Neighbors from across the Local's landscape! Happy Sunday Refugees, Early Birds, Later Dayers, Conversants, and Lurkers! Hey there Phamily, Dawn Patrol, Day Walkers, Supporters, Members and Visitors! Hello again Triggeratti, Fascinating People and Beautiful Bigots! I am sure there are other wonderous Local's communities with their own vibe and rhythm, but there is only so much time to visit even the ones I favor.
A late start to the day, I was content to listen to the Dark Horse Podcast before hoping further online. I am sure I will be posting it later at Padre's. Some really good discussion about the gaslighting of the last two years. Whatever the day ahead of you holds, I hope you discover joy, or more likely bring joy to the day ahead of you. A few quotes on joy for perspective on a Sunday. Have a blessed day my friends!
Welcome guests and digital neighbors! I hope you enjoy your visits here. May this little spot become a haven for those who want to connect with others away from the toxicity of many sites. Locals is a great experience for me and I hope it is a good experience for you. Any community is only as good as its members, so please see the community "About" section for guidelines as to what I hope will help us enjoy our visits here.😇
Dues to changes @LOCALS this community is no longer a free community if you want to participate. I believe you can lurk about and read things, but you will be unable to post without signing up for $2.00 monthly charge. Since this changed has happened, I want all of you to know that any funds that come as a result of this community will be given to charity. I came here for community - not for profit.
The two charities I want to sponsor at the beginning will be our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry that services our New Melle Community. The other charity will...
