Ignore the command

  1. Today is a national holiday, one of the big ones. Staying quiet in my corner, study, brunch, writing, translating, reading, pondering.

  2. Keeping to oneself is a good thing. Carry your own burden. Till your own garden. Not meddle in the affairs of others.

  3. From a novel: “After prayer, she hoped, would follow reason, God’s gift to her.” I like that.

  4. You will change the course of history. Not many, if any, will remember, but the heavens register your influence upon mankind.

  5. Is it true that compassion begins with self?

  6. An original verse: Since the beginning, Satan tells the lie: / “Ignore the command! You surely will not die.”

  7. A Bible verse. “May I hear about your loyal love in the morning, for I trust in you. Show me the way I should go, because I long for you” Psa 143.8.
