239 - Surrender

“No matter how busy you may think you are, 
you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”

This looked familiar, so I had to look it up. My mom always called that plant "wandering jew".

From Wikipedia: "Tradescantia pallida is a species of spiderwort (a genus of New World plants) more commonly known as wandering jew."

I like the quote, Mike. It's especially relevant in my life. I don't take enough time to slow down to read (or do other similar things that come down to learning and absorbing the world around me).

So many of my friends are busy, busy, busy. When I try to make the time to see them, they're just too busy. "I'm sorry, all my weekends are booked up through Christmas." Really? Damn!

Hope you are doing well!
