In The Metal

Living life 
"In the Metal"

"Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive"

our week's theme for

is "In the metal."
goes well with

Look into my mirror and see

"Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?"
Charles Bukowski

Eliminate the negative


Latch on to the affirmative


Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear 
About the elininatin' of the negative
and the accent on the positive
and gather 'round me children if you're willin'
and sit tight while
Don't mess with Mister In-Between.

Somebody changed the wording on this metal sign! 

(love more)

For the better I'd say.

"There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
or wise man can decide
What's right for you--just listen to
The voice that speaks inside."
 -Shel Silverstein

"There is no one alive who is Youer than You."
You know what to do!

Where I work we're deep in the United Way project and posted
 at every turn are words reminding us to carry out
 random acts of kindness.

"You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know how soon it will be too late."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Thanks for stopping in 
take good care of you!

Love and peace are elusive elements. More of them to give whenever opportunity arises. It should be the order of the day! The sign change provides a smile!

Your metal post is much more positive than mine.

But! There are other parts of my post that are happy.
