Sometimes the bear eats you.

I am the penguin in that photo.
Today was a really bad day. Many important things I’ve been neglecting or ignoring came bubbling up in a cauldron of putrid trouble. There’s an old saying, “Sometime you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.” That means you win some, you lose some, sometimes you’re up, and sometimes you’re down.
Events in life are just that – a mixture of chaos, control, and continuum. Life goes on. Even if you resort to cliches.
