Reading an interesting book…”The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes: Harnessing our Power to Change the World” – Deepak Chopra – decoding the laws that govern the realm of superheroes, our fascination with, their relevance, and perhaps most important – how to apply them to our daily lives.
An interesting and entertaining perspective!

Last Night the Rain Spoke to Me
By Mary Oliver
spoke to me
to come falling
out of the brisk cloud,
to be happy again
in a new way
on the earth!
That’s what it said
as it dropped,
smelling of iron,
like a dream of the ocean
into the branches
and the grass below.
Then it was over.
The sky cleared.
I was standing
under a tree.
The tree was a tree
with happy leaves,
and I was myself,
and there were stars in the sky
that were also themselves
at the moment
at which moment
my right hand
was holding my left hand
which was holding the tree
which was filled with stars
and the soft rain—
the long and wondrous journeys
still to be ours.
“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.” – – Steve Jobs
Having lots of choices isn’t necessarily a good thing.
Sometimes it can bog us down and keep us stuck.
When I get stuck I like to read quotes…looking for any glimmer of insight.
This one hit the nail on the head.

1. To cause to sleep or rest; soothe or calm.
2. To deceive into trustfulness: “that honeyed charm that he used so effectively to lull his victims” (S.J. Perelman).
1. A relatively calm interval, as in a storm.
2. An interval of lessened activity: a lull in sales.
