Quote of the Day

Lifted from TTS.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” — Dr. Seuss

This was suggested by my NYC doctor when I was diagnosed with an ulcer. I was twenty years old at the time. See, I used to keep my feelings bottled up and didn't want to upset the cart, or hurt feelings. I internalized every hurt myself and paid the price.

In fact, The good doctor hit me hard with this parting comment: Keep internalizing and putting your feelings after everyone else's and eventually you will get used to 6 months of baby food.

After that first 6 months of baby food I was a changed man.

I haven't eaten baby food since 1966.

And so it goes.
