Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become.  Your integrity is your destiny…  it is the light that guides your way.

In the last week, I tried a bit of humor – just to see if anyone noticed (or cared).
First I posted:

What Now, Then?

I am not now
That which I have been
 ― Lord George Gordon Byron
From: “Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
[No, I haven’t read the whole poem…  But I liked this one line.  —  KMAB]
A few days later, I posted:

A Toe In The River

January 15, 2013 by kmabarrett
I am not now
That which I have been.
 -–  Lord Byron
From: “Childe Harold
[As stated by Heraclitus of Ephesus:  “You can never step into the same river; for new waters are always flowing on to you.”  To which I would add, and you are always at least slightly older.  But, more importantly, are you greater (wise, kind, gentle) or lesser (bitter, cruel, hard)?  —  KMAB]
The version posted earlier received five “likes”.  The second version received three “likes”.  The three likes were from completely different people.
Now, I don’t know if the first five recognized the duplication and chose not to comment (or to “like” again), or simply didn’t notice (or didn’t care).
In any case, this was not a duplication error.  It was (for me) a subtle play on both the Byron quote and my second comment (including the quote by Heraclitus) that we are never the same person, even when we read the same thing a few days later.
I’ve been told humor is not funny if you have to explain the joke…  How come I’m still smiling?
