Aha! At last a kindred spirit…

I’ve been hungry for a quote like this one for years. It says it all. At least in my humble opinion. Apply it to anything: religion, politics, eduction, family life – whatever. Life is basicly a mattter of creative insecurity.

OK. Here it is – for your “thought for the day” collection:

by Susan Cain

My little boy? Bozie Badger? Ding? All the funny memories of a life half-spent together. Oh my! Or as he used to say: “Lions and Tigers and bears! Oh my!”

See for yourself.
