Say Cheese

Say Cheese

Confucius apparently said (more or less) that nothing new happen to people in the world its just that the same things happen to new people

It was while back and I am not even sure in which century or when Confucius actually lived. In fact I don’t even know if he even ever said that. I quite like the sound of it though. That probably makes me coming across as a dinosaur. If I wanted to be trendy I should perhaps swim in a world of verbosity. A world where crawling thru innovation waters or claiming breakthrough progress is the ultimate perception of success. Should I sail or should I sale.

Well the only thing I really want to do is take a break. I am getting tired of being bombarded by all the stuff so fake. Tired of hearing about the next earthquake or eating the same old corn flakes. The apocalypse rep is telling me that its always best to be on the move, that I should anticipate the next big thing, than today is better than yesterday. He often adds that I should be self aware that if I am not sharp I will be stuck in a time warp.

I frankly don’t care. I don’t know how much is a bus fare and the cost of a litre of petrol I am not aware. I am more preoccupied at making an attempt to do the right thing rather doing the things right. Confucius said attitude, latitude, altitude may all lead to solitude.

He may actually have not said that. But hey who knows what one really says ?

I happened upon
“Everything has beauty, but not everyone can see.” – Confucius

Added to my post "Be aware of WONDER"

As a former runner .. I get where the mind can wander and arrive at wonder ;~)
.. same as on a bike or on a hike
.. or under water if you like ;~)

@Pascal Derrien

I thought of your post while swimming laps - interesting the thoughts that come when your mind is under water ;~)
Song from the delightful musical tale Frozen II
"Do the next right thing" .. which I'm going to do by sharing Confucius

Just do the next right thing
Take a step, step again
It is all that I can to do
The next right thing
I won't look too far ahead
It's too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath, this next step
This next choice is one that I can make
So I'll walk through this night
Stumbling blindly toward the light
And do the next right thing

I also forgot to thank you for the the song you choose - lovely lyrics

The "apocalypse rep" should stay out of our time warp
“Shallowness is spreading” @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
So is the MINDLESS and the MEANINGLESS .. their LYRICS all sound the same

The unchanging lines of latitude & longitude

Hold their positions with unchanging attitude

Life’s changing lines are best held with gratitude
