“In all the mad incongruity, the turgid stultiloquy of life, I felt, at least, securely anchored to myself. Whatever the vacillations of other people, I thought myself terrifically constant. But now, here I am, dragging a frayed line, and my anchor gone.”
― John Steinbeck,
Word of the week–vacillate-(verb)-alternate or waver between different opinions; be indecisive. Synonyms-dither, waver, dilly-dally, shilly-shally
Visions of the future blow hot and cold
A pendulum swings west to east or east to west
Conflicts of interest with no purpose get old
In any situation, it befits to do our best
Let it be said high five awes don’t erase flaws
Lackluster fecundity doesn’t connect the dots
A lesson not learned deserves no applause
This dilly-dally world confuses even a bot
Endless mediocrities vacillate the common cause

Independence Day – 4th of July
The steady buzzzzzzz of the Katydid chorus,
the bass solo of the croaking Frog,
the steady woof-woof-woof a barking Dog –
a summer night’s serenade.- Michael P. Garofalo, Cuttings
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” – Erma Bombeck
