Rumination Nation

‘Thems who don’t learn from mistakes are destined to repeat them.’

Destined? No, but likely to repeat them.

And I know, ‘Thems’ is bad, but it’s meant to be.

Whatever the quote is – History is destined to repeat or whatever – has been shown to be true time and again in my memory. But ruminating on it, on mistakes and what-might-have-beens, does not one bit of good.

This is not a post on the results of the recent election, or not entirely at least. A good buddy of mine posted on Facebook that he’s going to post altruistic awesomeness – some article or site about someone or someones doing good for others. Selflessly and without expectation of reward. I love this idea. It’s very easy to get caught up in negatives and not easy to break out of being negative. I told this friend that we all win when he posts those positive items.

It’s the same reason that I sometimes like to look at pictures of cute puppies and other baby animals.

I think that this particular deceased equine is sufficiently battered. Onward and upward.
