This beautiful story has a simple, yet important message. I hope as many people as possible give it a read. I know I am happy I read it, as it gave me a few things to think about in my own life. Sometimes it is the simplest of stories that make us ponder the most.

While we pursue the elusive black dot, my cat sometimes pursues the elusive "red dot". I suspect there is much in common.

Now I get it. Someone's trying to shoot your cat, but you're not letting that distract you from all the other things you need to worry about.

Four dots on the outside and one in the middle is a prisoner's tattoo. It doesn't belong in humor, I know.

Thanks for the link, Fred...

Glad to help when I can. But you’re on your own with the senior sex thing. Or maybe that wasn’t quite the right thing to say.

Sorry, I’m distracted. Back to the dot...

The Black Spot didn't bode well for Billy Bones in Treasure Island.
