Happy Diogenes Day Eve!


2014-09-30 – Tomorrow, October 1, is Diogenes Day, the annual day devoted to the truth. In the spirit of the truth, I give you the final verse of Robert Burns 1786 Scots language poem, “To A Louse, On Seeing One on a Lady’s Bonnet at Church”:

O wad some Pow’r the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae mony a blunder free us,
An’ foolish notion:
What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
An’ ev’n devotion!

And there you have it: a wish for the truth about ourselves.

For just a day.

Have a great day tomorrow! And if you’re not sure how to celebrate, check out the link at the top of my blog. Or use your imagination. Then come back and let us know how it went.
