Just a Little Love Tap *WHAP*


Hey you. Yeah, you.

Here it is. The Public (more or less) Zen Stick.

Just. Stop. It.

I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of
owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of
years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

- Walt Whitman from Song of Myself

If you've got a problem, if you want something to change, if you want to be satisfied and happy with your life, then it's up to you, yes, YOU, to solve the problem, to change the outcome...or get over it.

Until then?

Quit whining.

I'm fairly certain it's crystal clear to you no one else wants to hear it.

It's funny because I was thinking something similar today on my way back from lunch. Thank you again for expressing something I was thinking in a much clearer, concise way than I ever could. PJ
