Thought for the Day


“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” 
― Carl Sagan

That may be quite true for me, as well.  I do think let's grasp the Universe as it really is rather than persist in believing in the myths of yesteryear.   On the other hand, life is what you make it [often times] and to persist in this world, it can be good to look at the good or brighter sides of life.  Is this delusional?

I like to say I live in my own little world and it's a happy place.  On the other hand, when I step out into the "real" world of town committees or dealing with others outside my  normal circle, I find myself realizing once again how dysfunctional many of us are.  So, I like to be a realist that looks on the bright side whenever I can find it.  At least if I am delusional, it is a delusion that is based on some semblance of reality and it is of my choosing and I am the happier for it.
