Ladies and gentlemen, meet Berd. His name was invented by a young woman just learning to read and write. If you asked her to say it, it would sound like "beard." I like her spelling better. It's straightforward, logical, no-nonsense. Were ours a truly phonetic language, we would spell Berd's name the way she does, and pronounce it properly as well, instead of something that sounds like "bird."
Now, Berd is not to be confused with the person upon whose face he sits. They insist on separate identities. In fact, don't ask me who the person with Berd is, because I won't tell you. Berd wouldn't want me to.
I find Berd inspiring. He helps me realize that when I change the way I look at things, the things I look at change. And no, Berd didn't say that. Wayne Dyer did. But Berd drove it home for me.
Anyway, I'm going to post some pop quizzes from time to time to continue the consciousness/philosophy/science/religion thing we've been doing here from time to time. It seems at least some Forumpians enjoy this type of Socratic dialogue as much as I do, so let's keep at it, shall we?
Alright, ready? Pop Quiz... go:
1. What is the opposite of "fear?"
2. What is the opposite of "hate?"
Ok, pencils down. Discuss.
Berd sends me a new photo and his contact info.
BTW, nice pix, Berd. You clean up good, dood.
