Morning Walking.

Morning Walk is the time I get to see people from a very safe distance ~ 30 feet!
Some men walk; some others run; some others do wight lifting with two water bottles as they walk along; some men walk their dogs and thankfully remove the poop when the dog does its business. :)

One man is unmistakable since he is very lean, tall and is topless! He would be dripping with streams of sweat, as he runs along quite fast, pushing his baby's perambulator. I wonder how much the baby enjoys the rough and fast ride and whether or not it looks forward to it.

Some ladies jog, some other run, some chat loudly on phone to a person, some old ladies plod along ( Doctor's orders?) and an ancient woman uses the walker with four wheels ( just as I do).

Many women monitor their movements with their smart watch and some listen to music. It is funny to see their eyes covered by huge goggles, nose and moth covered by a huge mask and ears plugged in with ear pods. Four out of the five sense organs under protection!

Everyone greets if there is an eye contact! Some sweet ladies greet - almost calling out loudly, even if there is no eye contact.

For me it is the time to do nAma Japam - synchronizing it with my breath and my steps. We can't walk while we meditate but we can meditate when we walk!
How very convenient to keep the mind focused and free from random thoughts.

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

311a.
Alle guten Dinge kommen in drei.
So kommt auch das Unglück nie allein.
311b.
All good things come in three.
So also Misfortunes never come alone.

Our lives are ruled by The Time Factor.
The Time factor changes depending on many parameters.

Most of these parameters are not under our control.
So whatever comes, we have to 'grin and bear it' or 'growl and bear it'.

footnotes:
Alle = All
guten = good
Dinge = things
kommen = come
in = in
drei = three.
So = So
auch = also
kommt = comes
das = the
Unglück = bad luck / misfortune
nie = never
allein = alone.

What is indecent exposure? :unsure:

Indecent exposure is the deliberate exposure in public or in view of the general public by a person of a portion or portions of their body in circumstances where the exposure is contrary to local moral or other standards of appropriate behavior. The term indecent exposure is a legal expression.

Another interpretation!

A person commits indecent exposure if he or she exposes his or her genitals or anus or she exposes the areola or nipple of her breast or breasts and another person is present, and the defendant is reckless about whether the other person, as a reasonable person, would be offended or alarmed by the act.

Does THIS explain why a woman who sports strategically placed three triangles, cut from a palm sized piece of cloth :eek: never gets arrested for Indecent Exposure? o_O

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

312a. Geld macht viele unmögliche Dinge möglich!
312b. Money makes many impossible things possible!

Once upon a time cattle was considered as the measure of prosperity of the owner.
Later Gold/ Silver / Paper currency replaced the cows, goats, horses and elephants.
Ever since then Money rules the world - not just our world but all the three worlds!

As long as there are people who would do ANYTHING for earning money,
there will be the people who would get ANYTHING done by paying money!

footnotes:-
Geld = Money
macht = makes
viele = many
unmögliche = impossible
Dinge = things
möglich = possible!

COVID confusions!

Even if one want to get admitted into a hospital for any health issues other than COVID 19, one needs a certificate to prove that one does not have COVID 19.

When a person is suffering from stroke or heart attack....
when a woman is bleeding heavily due to fibroid or an unfortunate abortion....
when a person is unable to run around to get the test done....
when a person has no time to wait for a certificate......
what happens to him or her or them???

Fate will decide it whether he/ she will get admitted in a hospital, get proper treatment, get well and get to go back home or get mass cremation done with hundreds of complete strangers.

Rules are there only to guide us under normal circumstances.
Rules can not rule over everything unforeseen or unfortunate.

Man must use his discretion and decide upon the course of action.
That is why he is gifted with a superior brain capable of making the right decisions.

If he wants to hide behind the rules and fails to make the right decision
then "Dear God! Please help us!"
