Patience, n. A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
~ Ambrose Bierce
Durum! Sed levius fit patientia
Quidquid corrigere est nefas.
~ Horace ~
This is hard indeed!
But whatever cannot possibly be amended
becomes lighter by patience.
Be patient my soul:
Thou hath suffered worst than this.
~ George Herbert
For the second time,
a planned trip to Seattle to see our little Noah
(born 12-29) has been postponed.
I told Carson, I am okay until I talk about it.
We hope for next week.
The stuff of life.
I don’t believe Ambrose Pierce, but he makes me laugh.
Horace is fun (and here is a quick Latin lesson:
Durum = hard, as in durum wheat or durable goods),
but Herbert hits the spot.
So this weekend, instead of holding Noah,
I’ll be printing W-2s and 1099s.
