The World is deep: deeper than day can comprehend.

Friedrich Nietzsche once said, " The world is deep, deeper than day can comprehend." Like many thinkers, Nietzsche's thoughts were perplexing because his many actions oftentimes contradicts his words, just like you and I. We are not here to understand Nietzsche's philosophical underpinnings, we are here to explore our own dilemma, enigma, and Promethean thoughts for the morrows.

I woke up this morning hearing the voice of my wife saying, "get some rest for we are doing a movie marathon tonight (paraphrased). Simple pleasure of life, and feeling the "together moments" of two people via the movies. Not Promethean or spectacular but meaningful and lasting moments... 

Heard and seen the news while eating breakfast "judge free a man to rejoin his family." That is a news, though simple but meaningful. Great way to start the day on a positive note. While others were driving to work, I was supervising our dogs while they perform their mundane tasks for the day. One of our dogs started barking at another person approaching  from behind. I told our dog to be silent but the person behind me admonished, "He is doing his job." The person was right. Why am I stopping our dog from doing his job ?" Another irony of life. Guard dogs are supposed to warn their owners of pending dangers or strangers to our territory. A trivial story but worthy of our thoughts.
