no black Friday here
Amazing how the wind can shape the trees.
For those of you unaware of the mad shopping frenzy that takes over much of the US inhabitants the day after our Thanksgiving… it’s called Black Friday. I’m not actually sure of why it was named “Black”… but folks have been killed in the mad rush to be the first to get to the “bargains”. My inclination is to stay very far from the stores and malls until after the “Christian” holiday a month from now…..Perfection of character is this: to live each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, without apathy, without pretense.
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
