Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Wednesday, 2018.07.18
Every experience that we have, everything that we do and think is registered
upon us as surely as the steady embroidery of a tattoo artist. But to a large
degree, the pattern and picture that will emerge is up to us. If we go to a
tattoo artist, it is we who select the picture. In life, it is we who select
what we will become by the actions we perform. There is no reason to go through
life thoughtlessly, to let accident shape us. That is like allowing oneself to
be tattooed by a blind man. How can you help but turn out old and ugly?

Heil Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty…

Yet another reason to be suspicious of cats: Kitlers. There’s lots of them and they have fans! Even so, its been 14 years since we had to put our kitty, Jerome, down and I still miss that purr.
