Super Cufflinks

If you’ve got to wear cufflinks then they might as well be Superman Cufflinks!


These will definitely make you feel special. 


Maybe like a quasi Superhero. 


Some may think you’re a little arrogant and all that. 


But maybe you just are hoping to be super at whatever you do. 


It’s good to have an imagination and aspiration, and maybe a little sense of humor and fun. 


As long as you don’t let it go to your head or to your pompous a**. 😉

Controversy, Yet Agreement

In these great times of strife and controversy in this country…

One thing that we can probably all agree on:

Make Falafel Not War

Words to live by.

And to eat by.  😉

The Purge

Thought this was an interesting sign someone had in their office. 

PURGE the things that no longer bring PURPOSE!


Yikes! I wonder who or what got purged from this person’s life recently. 


Yet, perhaps it is a good lesson against hoarding and just accumulating junk (things and certain people) along the way of life. 


When things have a deeply negative impact on your life (or they’re just dead weight), perhaps it is time to consider letting go.


I’m not talking about relationships of commitment (e.g. family), which have a stronger and timeless bond in my mind, but of those that earn their right into your life by virtue of being ongoing positive, productive forces. 


There is no blessing in gluttony or hoarding–stay trim and fit, travel light and with what is truly meaningful and necessary. 😉

We Are Family!

I like this definition of family:

 

Family means NOBODY gets left behind. 

 

We take care of each other.

 

No matter what.

 

My father used to say:

Blood is thicker than water. 

 

It’s not just from the battlefield that we make sure to bring everyone home.

 

Home is where the heart is.  😉

Forgot To Bring Blood

So I go for some blood work today.


Lady pokes my arm, and nothing comes out. 


She moves the point of the needle around and around– still no blood. 

 

She says: “Hey, it’s your fault!”


I say: 

You’re right, no one told me that I was supposed to bring blood with me today. 


She looks up and says, “Okay let’s try the other arm!”


Then she spanks the arm…and I blurt out laughing, “hey do that again!”


Then poke, poke, and the blood easily fills a half dozen tubes.


She’s said, “You see that worked!”


I said:

I only brought blood in my right arm today!


If I could read her mind: “Ok, get the F*** out of the office.”


But she was nice and actually says, “You can get your results in about 3 days.”  😉

When All The World Is Going Crazy

When all the world is going c-r-a-z-y…


The best thing you can do is stay CALM. 


– Calm is where good energy enters and bad doesn’t.


– Calm is where rational thinking gets done. 


– Calm is where positive action happens. 


– Calm is where our inner faith is sustained. 


– Calm is where we can inspire and lead ourselves and others to do good. 


Calm is where we all yearn to be. 😉

Too Much Violence

There is too much violence in the world.

Physical violence.

Verbal violence.

Emotional violence.

When there aren’t body sores.

There are emotional and mental ones.

So much suffering.

The silent masses.

Their doors close.

But behind them.

And outside.

In the chaos of the streets and on the subways.

You can see it in the eyes.

And hear it in their voices.

Maybe they are black and blue.

The people are troubled.

The world is insane.

The children are especially innocent.

The weak at the hands of the strong.

Anarchy reigns where G-dliness is absent.

Why? Why? Why?
