I am pretty confident most of the time, but like everyone, I can lapse into self doubt. I made a Google home page that I love- all of my favorite widgets all in one place- giving me the condensed versions of information I use every day- NYT front page, favorite blog entries, etc. For some reason I cannot know divine, I also put the Magic 8 Ball on the page. So in a moment of indecision, I asked the 8 Ball to prognosticate the future. I got mixed messages, and finally asked- Should I depend on other things that the Magic 8 ball to make decisions? And its answer was “It is decidely so.” I started laughing out loud- a random, turthful message from the cosmos I needed this morning. Never underestimate the power of fun and silly.
