wow…. I’ve just been informed my remaining vacation hours for the year is about 229 hours…. divided by 8 hour days…. that’s a lot of days! I’m very conservative with vacation and didn’t realize I stacked up and carried over so much from last year….
now I must scheme to take some time off to myself
heaven knows I could use some time off…..
Who knows for what we live, struggle and die?… Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom.

Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
Life ought to be a struggle of desire toward adventures whose nobility will fertilize the soul.
– Rebecca West (1892 – 1983)
The poor on the borderline of starvation live purposeful lives. To be engaged in a desperate struggle for food and shelter is to be wholly free from a sense of futility.
– Eric Hoffer (1902 – 1983), “The True Believer”, 1951
The perfect way is only difficult for those who pick and choose. Do not like, do not dislike; all will then be clear. Make a hairbreadth difference and heaven and earth are set apart; if you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. The struggle between “for” and “against” is the mind’s worst disease.
– Bruce Lee (1940 – 1973), Tao of Jeet Kune Do
Those who cannot tell what they desire or expect, still sigh and struggle with indefinite thoughts and vast wishes.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)
We find that after years of struggle we do not take a journey, but rather a journey takes us.
