I’ve been gone since 10 a.m. this morning… trying to get stuff done. I got home in time for beans, cornbread, fried okra and fried potatoes… Then was sitting here and watching the news and it hit me….
I hadn’t posted yet today. Crap! Okay so there are going to be days like this but it seems like a buttload of them have jumped on me since I started this personal challenge of posting something every day this month. I guess my bulldog tenacity has kicked in now. I hate to commit to something and then not carry through on my commitment. So I’ve decided that I will share something that I have carried in my wallet for forty years…
“Not By Bread Alone: After Hippocrates”
Written in 1907 by James Terry White and read:
“If thou of fortune be bereft
And in thy store there be but left
Two loaves, sell one and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.”
I’ll try do more tomorrow but I had to get a post together for this evening so I decided to share something that’s been near and dear and given me inspiration for many, many years.
