Flower for your thoughts

4.19.15.3.

Everyone has heard the saying “Penny for your thoughts?”, but do we really understand what that phrase means? It sounds cute and kind of like a cute way of asking someone what they think. Do you know where it came from? It was first published in 1522 by Sir Thomas More. He wrote, “As it often happeth that the very face sheweth the mind walking a pilgrimage, in such wise that, not without some note and reproach of such vagrant mind, other folk suddenly say to them, ‘A penny for your thought.’” This saying didn’t actually begin to pick up popularity till much later in 1547 by a book that was written by John Heywood. Now, do you really care about all this? Probably not, but you have said the phrase before probably in your lifetime so here you go. The point is to say that the wise stay silent until given money for their thoughts. A person’s thoughts are valuable and should not be wasted. Going off of this type of thinking, I would say that maybe we shouldn’t give our thoughts out to just everyone. Wait until your thoughts/ opinions are asked for before you start running over other peoples feelings in some cases. Words of wisdom today and more shopping to do! TOOTLES

As the Clock Ticks

10.14.14.5

Has it ever been so quiet in a room where you can hear the clock ticking? It seems like it makes the time move even slower as you watch the hand tick tick tick all the way around. It can put you in a trance and make you block out things around you. SL happens to be that clock that you can turn on and focus on and block out things going on around you. You could even reverse that and say that no matter how horrid things may be going in SL, you can always turn it off and go back into RL and ignore it. This hasn’t been more true than this past week. You can show people the truth or give them the answers to whatever they seek, but ignorance gets in the way. I am guilty of this and I can admit it, but what about those who can’t. Those who do not know when to stop and think before crazy words come out of their mouths. Maybe promises are made that can’t be kept, or maybe people spread rumors based on nothing but some story they made up in their own heads. These are the things that SL is made of. How sad is that? The absolute best thing to do when people grow ignorant is to just turn off the computer and walk away. A valuable lesson learned this past week. All of these scenarios happened this week, which made for a very aggravating week here. Just reminds me where my big X on my screen is and makes me dive into other things with more gusto than I normally give. Take away energy from one thing and push it towards another. That will begin to happen a little more and I hope you are all ready for this since my time is a tad more free than usual. 🙂 TOOTLES!
