People who like telling other people what to do

I do not consider myself to be one of these people. (Not currently.)

I suppose I have been, at times. (At least 3 people who occupy/have occupied very important roles in my life would probably snort rather loudly here & say “Uh yeah, I’ll say! I’d say Mom/Janet has, or once had, at least, a very healthy fondness indeed for telling people what to do.”)

We do change, over the years, as we grow, don’t we??

(One can only hope!? :) )

It’s certainly become crystal-clear to me that almost no one really wants to be told what to do.

Yet our world seems to abound in people who apparently thrive on bossing others around. (Well, I’m not so sure they actually thrive on this; I just know some folks who do an awful lot of it.)

Sure wish such folks would sit down for a minute

& muse for a wee bit

on how they feel when people boss them around.


Death to bossiness/control freak-ism, I say!!


So much has passed us by, now. So much is gone forever, now. So much is now impossible to achieve or attain or retrieve.

So many ships have sailed, now … hmmm?


Let’s just mostly be kind now, shall we???

‘Quote of the day’ with this post: “I am a hole in a flute that the Christ’s breath moves through.” – Hafiz (spotted on church billboard on Aug. 1/15) *** I like this so much, with its phrasing "the Christ" rather than "Christ." Not all of us believe in all that organized Christianity tells us is true ... & many of us can resonate with the concept of a Christ figure.

“It is in the shelter of each other the people live.” ~ Irish Proverb

“It’s never the wrong time to do the right thing.” – not sure who said this, but it sure is true!

“Even after all this time

The sun never says to the earth,

‘You owe me.’

Look what happens with a love like that.

It lights the whole sky.”

Hafiz, from 'The Gift.'
