“We spend so much time trying to be something other than what we think we are. It’s very difficult and very painful. It’s important to just be in touch with what we are, to be aware of and enjoy the gifts we have, and to avoid the obviously destructive things in society. The way we are in each moment determines the quality of our life and our environment. If we really take care of ourselves, then we will also take care of everyone around us.”

Anne Rudloe, Butterflies on a Sea Wind: Beginning Zen


Ramfeezled: "To exhaust oneself with work, to wear oneself out."

Isn't that far more expressive than saying, "I'm tired," or "I'm beat." Imagine how
much better it would feel to come home from work and announce, "I'm ramfeezled!"
