Do you make the most of your five senses
Or is your life like Old Mother Hubbard's shelf? Well, mark this on your slate
Life is not an empty plate
That's if you appreciate yourself

Ev'ry time you're near a rose
Aren't you glad you've got a nose?
And if the dawn is fresh with dew
Aren't you glad you are you?

When a meadowlark appears
Aren't you glad you've got two ears?
And if your heart is singing, too
Aren't you glad you are you?

You can see a summer sky
Or touch a friendly hand
Or taste an apple pie
Pardon the grammar, but ain't life grand?

And when you wake up each morn
Aren't you glad that you were born?
Think what you've got the whole day through
Aren't you glad you are you?

~ Frank Sinatra/Jimmy Van Heusen

"It is a wise king who leaves a seat on his Council for his Jester."

this reminds me of the series by Robin Hobb of the Fitz and Fool characters. while i've also read most of her other books set in that world these six books (i'm getting old now perhaps it is more than just the six i'm thinking of) i've re-read while the others have not captured my imagination nearly as much...

my quote today from my garden: "Well those trees got chewed on too..."

There is a legitimate old Jewish saying that goes "A whole fool is half a prophet."
