With apologies & thanks to Frank Herbert:
I must not FOMO.
FOMO is the mind-killer.
FOMO is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my FOMO.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the FOMO has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
I have spent many happy hours along the shorelines of oceans and other bodies of water. Littorally.

I love using the American Family Association emailings to contact my federal representatives- in this case, to show my non-support of the U.S. Constitutional Marriage Protection Amendment (H.J. RES. 51) introduced by Congressman Tim Huelskamp of Kansas. The amendment states "Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman."
My rewording of the AFA's message:
As a voter in your district, I strongly feel that H.J. RES. 51 introduced by Representative Tim Huelskamp has no business becoming a Constitutional amendment. This type of religious social engineering has no place in our Constitution.
Please let me know you will not be co-sponsoring this equality and freedom limiting resolution, so that I may share your decision with my voting friends and family.

Actually, it's not. I'm told one must use Craigslist for that.
Another morning. Another utterance of the 6 words my spouse loves to hear:
"I love you. Coffee is ready."
"You're using the old version of the Friends page — switch to the new one and try to customize it."
WTH is this- a challenge? "Try to customize it?
