Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start your post or one paragraph with the word ‘anyway.’” Bonus points if you start your post with “anyway” and regular points if you use it in a paragraph somewhere else in your post. Enjoy!

This has to be one of the easiest and laziest SoCS posts I’ve done in a while. Upon reading the prompt, my brain immediately went to the following. I had this poem sitting on my desk, in a pretty little gold frame, in my business office for a long, long time. Believe me, in a business setting, it helped to gaze on this quietly after certain types of encounters! This is often attributed to Mother Teresa, but there is some doubt about that, but the message doesn’t alter with the authorship. So, anyways, here’s what popped into my head:


    1. Exactly! Your nextdoor neighbor Bill the electrician could have written it and it would be just as valid. You can also take the “God” out of it, and it is just as valid. “Be true to yourself” and “Don’t let the bastards get you down.”
