As August Approaches. . .
We each have our own story. Here on ActiveRain, in the real world and elsewhere we travel throughout life. As the end of month draws closer, there is much to reflect. Again.
There is also a lot to anticipate in August. On that subject, I think of our canine friends and the dog days yet to come. Paws, for one reason (or is that four?) as well. And pause too. Because the eighth month may be a time when you take a break for a number of reasons. Seriously speaking or speaking of Sirius in a cosmic sense. Did you fetch that additional dog reference? 🐶
Regardless of any respite occurring, the following three quotes are ponder-worthy for me. I hope you find something purposeful in them too:
Take a walk with a turtle. And behold the world of pause.

It is not so much knowing when to speak, when to pause.
attributed to: Jack Benny
The right word may be effective,
but no word was ever
as a rightly timed pause.
attributed to: Mark Twain
Welcome August as there will be much to consider. A pause, some paws or more than a few faux pas. Putting things into perspective continues to be good. 🐾🐾
