Reading Day

Let's be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week
that is devoted exclusively to reading. 



I've seen this quote attributed to Lena Dunham, but I don't have a source for that. The picture shows the Science Library of Upper Lusatia in Görlitz, Germany.

Wonderful Day

I've seen this attributed to Maya Angelou, but I am not sure if that is true or not. The image is from Pixabay.


This is a wonderful day;
I have never seen this one before.

READING IS FUN







Procrastination Humor

Everybody struggles with procrastination! The word is from the Latin cras, which means "tomorrow" - and of course tomorrow never comes. It is always today already, and there is always . . . tomorrow. I'm not sure I really have any good advice for coping with procrastination, but I figure humor is always a good way to get started. It's better than despair! So below you will find some procrastination humor! Enjoy!

And here is the poster:



Finally, here is a cartoon by one of my favorite cartoonists, Dan Piraro a.k.a. Bizarro:


What you should focus on

Things that matter and things that you can control: where they overlap is what you should focus on.

Make your weird light shine bright

A friend of mine shared this graphic at Google+, and I thought it was a fantastic message. This is what the Internet is for, right? Right!

Make your weird light shine bright
so the other weirdos know where to find you.


Whatever... I'm late anyway.

What a great clock!
