A Battle Of Wits

I would

challenge you

to a battle of wits,

but I see you are

the road to happiness is paved with a light heart
a few good habits will give you a start

“what, me worry” said Alfred E. Newman
“the buck stops here” said President Truman

a light heart tries not to worry
a light heart is rarely in a hurry

anger is just one letter short of danger
angles like to disguise themselves as a stranger

a light heart is never the avenger
a light heart loves the Lone Ranger

resentments are an unreasonable fear
self-pity makes our whole world unclear

a light heart has the courage
a light heart will not disparage

be kind, be happy
be loving, be happy
be patient, be happy
be tolerant, be happy
be forgiving, be happy

happiness is being the person
your dog thinks you are
or the person your God wants you to be
a happy light heart will know how to agree


ME and the Boss
As soon as one tries to disagree, to argue, they are sabotaging their own happiness.

The main principles underneath each of the 12 steps of AA:

  1. Acceptance
  2. Hope
  3. Faith
  4. Courage
  5. Honesty
  6. Willingness
  7. Humility
  8. Responsibility
  9. Love
  10. Discipline
  11. Awareness/Growth
  12. Service

These principles, along with a practice of pausing and reflecting on them,
can give us the ability to be happy and to cope with whatever we may go through.






The Secret


“The secret

to life is

to live as though

you know

the secret.”


~ Barbara Botch

who knows

hidden from view

enigma for the occult








The magic that frees the soul
faith in a Higher Power to extol
things change when you do his His will
the miracles that give one a thrill

to fly the soul needs no magic carpet
you are the designer of its final target
left, right, good, evil, up or down
if it was a circus you could be the clown

happiness involves a simple change in attitude
made by those who have much gratitude
thinking of and doing for others
we are all brothers from different mothers

a loving God who is Father to us all
remembering our rise from the Neanderthal
enjoy this life that we have been given
believe it or not this is heaven

always be motivated by the best of intentions
always be ready to ask the right questions
sometimes it is best to keep the mouth shut
easily done when stuffed with a cream filled donut

so the magic you see may come from any direction
today make sure you do not miss it’s detection
