Something to Ponder

The best food for thought comes at unexpected moments. I was walking in my neighborhood yesterday, supposed to be enjoying the brief glimpse of true spring weather, supposed to be pondering my work-in-progress...instead, I was reeling through various to-do lists and (the horror!) sub to-do lists and even sub-sub to-do lists, when out of the corner of my eye, I noticed an etched stone in someone's garden.  I whisked by, but something made me back up and go read what was written:

"Beware the barrenness of a busy life." ~ Socrates

I won't say my life instantly changed. But I will say that the words have been haunting me.
