Today's words of wisdom are, oddly enough, brought to you by Bruce Lee (via my slightly jaded but very insightful friend, Michi).

Don't get set into one form. Adapt it and build your own, and let it grow. Be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless -- like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Something to chew on for the days ahead -- or maybe 'till the end of days altogether. Happiness (let alone contentedness) is hard to come by and even harder to maintain. But if you stay true to your essential self, if you are open to (and accepting of) the crazy world around you, then there's no punch with which you can't roll & no hit that can hurt what's inside you. Don't dwell, don't stew, just calmly slide away from any shape too bothersome. All will be OK.

Happy Friday! HAPPY WEEKEND!
