All the world….

Today’s prompt could encourage me to share, boringly, how I remain lazy, not wanting to take the next step with manuscripts. Instead, I prefer to share with you a quote my mother used to use of Robert Owen’s. As I get older the more relevant and true it becomes:

‘All the world is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.’

Do we become more critical and discerning as we get older? Are we more accepting when young? Sometimes I feel uncritical, but if I allow myself to think deeply, this adage rings true. Meditation allows me to obliterate such thoughts and calmly proceed.

So why worry about what is sliding, one day I shall attend to it, if there’s time.
