GD: Now, to wrap up for this Beaver Island Thursday…

Here’s a thought for the day: For Lucas and Sophia and all our listeners –

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” 
― Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov


On a lighter note…

While driving into town this morning, a snowshoe rabbit ran in front of my car. Luckily, I missed it by a hare!!!


SFX: Studio Bell
