Goose,

If you're going to decide it's a good idea for me to blub at a quarter to three of the afternoon, please give me a heads up first. I'd have chosen better cover.

Yes. Human emotion. It made me cry. Had I known, I wouldn't have been in such a public spot. Please warn me in future.

I was lazy. I could have run a word check on "blub." Sorry

But anyway, those kinds of tears--sad tears--are good tears. Scientists say that they contain toxins. Whereas tears of joy do not.

I wish I could cry more. Tear ducts are rusted shut.

BTW, Rusty, what's with your new profile pic?

Very creative but it leaves one wondering what is going on there. Have you been quarantined?

So they never taught you about the Great Apostrophe Shift? One of the tragic effects of the Great War coinciding with the surprising T-Bone - Porterhouse Exchange.

Another Lewis quote to comfort us on our journey Home:

“Think of yourself just as a seed, patiently waiting in the earth: waiting to come up a flower in the Gardener's good time, up into the real world, the real waking. Our present life, looked back on from There, will seem only a drowsy half-waking." ~ C.S. Lewis, Collected Letters, Vol III
"At present we're on the wrong side of the door. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so." ~ C.S. Lewis

"Real sorrow ends neither with a bang nor a whimper. Sometimes it remains for life, a puddle in the mind which grows always wider, shallower, and more unwholesome. Sometimes it just peters out, as other moods do." C.S. Lewis From Experiment in Criticism Compiled in Words to Live By

Here, C.S. Lewis explains what he believes Jesus meant when He said "Be ye perfect, as your Father in Heaven is perfect." It is quite a hard saying.

"We must not fret about not doing God those supposed services which He in fact does not allow us to do. Very often I expect, the service He really demands is that of not being (apparently) used, or not in the way we expected, or not in a way we can perceive."

C.S. Lewis; A letter to Mary Willis Shelburne, dated February 22, 1958
"At present we're on the wrong side of the door. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so." ~ C.S. Lewis
