Seeking joy and meaning in a joyless mind and meaningless existence

Snail Shower

This little video speaks for itself.  I never thought bathing a mollusk could be so adorable, but there you have it.  Almost makes me want to get one, although I don't think that would a good mix with two geriatric cats.  (Even though the snail could probably outsmart my two cats, I doubt it could outrun them.)

Personal Roundup

Good grief!  The past several days have not been exemplary, so I'll just leave them in the past.  Today is the start of a new week and a new opportunity for me to get back on track. 

The writing thing has been amazing, though.  In fact, the main reason behind letting myself get overly tired was staying up late and writing.  Not just posts on this blog, but revising poems and one of my short stories for submissions.  Much of the revision I was doing was extensive.  In some cases, the final poem looks very little like their original version.  And the other night I began writing a new poem for the first time in fifteen to twenty years.
