Wild Card Friday, May 9, 2008

Good morning, Netizens...

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
And remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly & clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull & ignorant;
they too have their story.

(An excerpt from Desiderata by Max Ehrmann (1872-1945) written in 1927.

Hang in there! It's Friday! At long last, we have made it through the week, and we only have a few more hours to go before the weekend arrives.

Lots of things are shaking around the world, and even a few here in Spokane. If you are of a mind to do so, you might read the entire poem by Max Ehrmann and carefully think upon it as we approach the weekend together.

Then having properly prepared yourself, here is the Wild Card for Friday, May 9, 2008.
