A bit of a lecture. Listen in if you care to.

Welcome, beautiful traveler. I greet you with a brief and simple message.

If you wish to be cared for, you must first care.

If you wish to be loved, you must first love yourself, and then be willing to extend that love to others.

If you wish for a hero to ride in and save you, you must first be willing to become a hero yourself.

You and I -- we are the best this world has to offer. If we wait to be saved, instead of acting ourselves, then we deserve whatever disappointments that we get.

Thank you, goddess of love, for reflections -- they show us where the work must begin.

Lovingly yours,

A devotee

Thank you kindly, and Happy New Year to you, too, G-Man!

I've been in a bit of a funk for a while, and this entry was meant as an attempt to boss myself out of it. Not sure it's working, but I'm going to keep trying ...

Anyway, I'm certainly glad to see you stopping in!
