“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all
who live to see such times.
But that is not for them to decide.
All we have to decide
is what to do with
the time that is given us.”
“They always say time changes things,
but you actually have to change them yourself.”
“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking,
the hours are going by.
The past increases,
the future recedes.
And just what is ‘fabulous’ this Friday? That we all have a bit of time still to use;
And the energy and good sense to use it well.
Stay safe, everyone, especially those living along the Gulf Coast.
“Happiness is Contagious! Let’s infect one another.”
