The Most Efficient Mirror

No man is the originator of anything.
He is merely a mirror in which
the cosmos is reflected.

And the wisest man is simply
the most efficient mirror.

~ Dr. A. S. Raleigh

Of Note: This statement reflects the truism "As above, so below." One meaning of these words is this: we, humanity, can know the cosmos by looking at ourselves. Thing is, we don't really know our true Selves. When we eventually come to that revelation--and each of us do--it is said the whole universe will open before our startled eyes.

Today's Weather Report: It is still in the mid-forties Fahrenheit, if you can believe it. Tell you the truth, we can't. I don't remember any late November when the temperatures lingered much above freezing, let alone in the forties. Today we welcomed it because we added a new member to our family, a 7-month of German Shepherd named Misty. Tonight she is lonely without her kennel mates and is pacing downstairs--all the while whimpering pitifully. Nothing can sooth her at the moment. Hopefully, this phase will pass within a few days, and she will slip effortlessly into our family.
