Diogenes was asked, "What is the difference between life and death? "No difference." "Well then, why do you remain in this life?" "Because there is no difference."
A young man contemplating marriage sought advice from Diogenes. "Should I marry?" "Marriage is too soon for a young man" "Would you have me wait then until I am old." "Oh no, Marriage is far too late for an old man." "What am I to do then? I love the girl." "Love is a luxury no one can afford. It is for those who have nothing better to do." "What should we be doing then?" "To seek freedom. But it is not possible to be free if you have a wife and children." "But having a wife and family is so agreeable." "Then you see the problem, young man. Freedom would not be so difficult to attain were prison not so sweet." "You mean to be free is to be alone?" "We come into the world alone and we die alone. Why, in life, should we be any less alone?" "To live, then, is terrible." "No, not to live, but to live in chains."

A quick update on the garden some things are going good, others are doing ok. thinking about changing up a few things. i'm going to try spinach again when it gets cool, too hot now to get a good harvest. grapes doing pretty good. i've been spraying fungicides to get rid of the spots on the leaves. but it doesn't really seem to help. strawberries have a low yeld, not sure what variety they are. got a new tomato plant a "black prince" said to be great for sauces. i'll post some new stuff on the garden later, gotta get back to drawing
