I’ve been wondering, as we see highs and lows come and go – as highly stressed days seem to outnumber relaxed easy ones for so many people, is there is some science or logic to all of this?
Is there a bio-feedback tool to measure when we should say what’s on our mind when we should bite our tongue, is there a guide for when we should boldly propose ambitious projects, or read-out to tell us when to explore a new line of work?
When do we start, when do we quit, when we celebrate victory, when do we resign and step aside?
When are we are our best?
When do we make the best decisions, have the best day, do our best work?
Is it as simple as, “When I’ve had a good night’s sleep?” or is it more complicated than that?
Merwin, no doubt, wrestled with these questions too …

Hello Mark, You have an amazing way with words! Your musing Wise, or whys? really hit home! I like nothing better than to converse in person. Sending texts or writing can be a big mistake, as I have found. It is very difficult to get your personality across unless you are face to face. I'd enjoy meeting you one day. I would be a tad intimidated however I have a feeling you can put anyone at ease. Have a great day and I look forward to reading more of your muses! Kind regards, CM, Winnipeg, MB
