    Arrow life lesson.....

    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
    >> >
    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
    >> >
    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.
    >> >
    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
    He would shake it off and take a step up.
    >> >
    As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.
    >> >
    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up o! ver the e dge of the well and happily trotted off!

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
    >> >
    Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.
    >> >
    Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.
    >> >
    Live simply and appreciate what you have.
    >> >
    Give more.
    >> >
    Expect less.
    >> >
    NOW ............
    Enough of that crap . .. The donkey later came back, and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.
    >> >
    The gash from the bite got infected and the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.
    >> >
    MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:
    >> >
    When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ass, it always comes back to bite you.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
