Sometimes we worry a little too much.

Sometimes we don't worry enough.

Sometimes the balancing act is a bit like walking the razor edge, and if we think about it all too much, one way or the other, we topple or worse; falling on the sharpened edge.

When I was in school, the first time in this lifetime, trying to please my father and become an FBI agent (before women were more than secretaries in the FBI-poor Pop. He really disliked the late Ms. Friedan, but he sure wanted me to be the new and improved, female version of Elliot Ness:), I learned a saying that has always cracked me up, frankly.

Surely you have heard it before...

You are only crazy if you don't worry that you are.

I wonder...

I become so frustrated, so angry. Lately I catch myself saying things like "This younger generation..." in complete exasperation.

I go into long and windy soapbox derby with myself as the only racer:) I pontificate. Sometimes I find I am 'preaching to the choir' but more often I know I am merely fuming at a brick wall.

I think it may be time to take my mental blood pressure.

Regretfully I've had to update my blog to comment moderation to prevent spamming. LOL, if only the fools knew my blog is seen by a very small and select group-it might help them understand the waste of time it is to spam my blog! Oh well, it's not as though spammers are very bright, after all.
