…of ‘International Polar Bear Day’ & perspectives…

pbpb2

February 27th! …it’s International Polar Bear Day!… “an event celebrated every year to raise awareness about the conservation status of the polar bear.”

We’ve all heard that term ‘polar opposites‘…‘agree to disagree’…you know, that ‘au contraire’ state of being where folks just don’t see ‘eye to eye’.

Ever had those kinds of experiences where you feel you’re just ‘barking up the wrong tree’?!?!

In a rapidly ascending balloon were two men.
One watched the earth getting farther and farther away.
One watched the stars getting nearer and nearer.
~George Jean Nathan, “Viewpoint,” A Book Without a Title, 1918

Inside my empty bottle I was constructing a lighthouse while all the others were making ships. ~Charles Simic

Is the glass half empty, half full, or twice as large as it needs to be? ~Author Unknown

If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail. ~Abraham Maslow

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
~J.R.R. Tolkien

There’s an alternative. There’s always a third way, and it’s not a combination of the other two ways. It’s a different way. ~David Carradine

I went to a cafe that advertised breakfast anytime, so I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance. ~Steven Wright

Cheers to a magnificent Monday that sings—fine perspectives!
