Loneliness vs being alone, and solitude. Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
The dog gets you the 5 star rating for today. Just sayin'.
You're wife is always right. She picked you, right?
Good morning Bill ! Thank you for including Circe’s article, I thoroughly enjoyed it and shared it with a friend who is struggling after her relocation. Although much of today's news is just not “good” I appreciate your take on it and yes.. your wife is right! That dog!!!!!

Cheers to your wife for the great dog story - she is so right about the awful news lately. And cheers to Circe, I am nearing 60 and considering a move as well - her words were insightful and encouraging. Enjoy exploring your new world, Circe!
Anything with a dog is simply outstanding. My dog agrees.
re the tragic discovery of the semi in TX, laden with the dead. I like this headline more than the one you used. (https://s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/nlimgs.crowdpac.com/06282205.jpg) ‘people.’ not ‘migrants.’ ‘46 people found dead’ feels much more respectful. it also gets a reader ‘inside the door.’ thanks.
I learned a long time ago the best way to fend off loneliness and even depression is to give yourself something to look forward to every day. Every night before going to bed think of something you want to accomplish tomorrow. It might as simple as getting your car washed or buying a new dish drainer. You will be amazed how starting the day with something to accomplish will change your outlook.
A different take on loneliness. I was in a horrific marriage. When I escaped,
I realized there’s nothing more lonely than being in a bad marriage. Since then, no matter my predicament, I always remember that and it changes my attitude.
watch every sunset and every sunrise....and grow in appreciation
About the last of 7 other things, the poor thing was misunderstood. It just wanted to join the game, but got distracted by the belly rubs.
This is brilliant. The dog video is adorable.
Love the article "Captian of your soul". I enjoy Understandably and look forward to whenever I see it in my in box. Thank you Bill.
Good stuff, Bill. I am entertained and learn something everyday from your newsletter. It's important to point out that the Army's recruitment issues are actually widespread across all branches, not just the Army. https://www.ngaus.org/newsroom/military-struggles-recruiting-especially-army. Problems like this don't crop up suddenly in one year unless something dramatic has occurred. Perhaps an empty suit for a president and the military's sudden "woke" agenda are more likely the cause.
Do we agree that life needs water for survival?
Love the upbeat video. Hopefully, this dog finds a forever home where they play.
