Take Care of Yourself

I read two simple things on random blogs today. The first was a poem I really liked and almost posted right away. But I hadn’t heard of the author and googling him showed he was also a socialist politician and these days I’m avoiding politics on the blog. But screw it, in South America in the 60’s lots of people were socialists and it’s a poem.

So via Om Malik who may have the best URL around, a poem by Pable Neruda called Dies Slowly:

He who does not travel,
who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
dies slowly

Follow by John Scalzi (who could be a socialist, who knows?):

Take care of yourself. You’re not getting any younger, you know. Do things that give you joy, with people you like and love. It’s more important than you might think.

Do things that give you joy…
