…on not panicking…

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”  Douglas Adams, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

With so many things in our whacked-out world wackier than normal wacky, here’s advice from a pillow prominently positioned on my sofa as a calming presence.

“DON’T PANIC!” Douglas Adams, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

It’s hard not to panic watching the news these days and/or trying to cope with shenanigans in our lives. Here’s a bit more from Douglas Adams on that topic…

“A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.”  Douglas Adams, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

But, here’s a little hope and ways to cope (hitchhiking across the galaxies of our lives.)

“There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”  Douglas Adams, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

“There is a moment in every dawn when light floats, there is the possibility of magic. Creation holds its breath.”  Douglas Adams, ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’

Holding our breaths for new dawns, remember (once again)…


grace, peace & HOPE
