An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life . . .
'A fight is going on inside me,' he said to the boy. 'It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.'
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, 'Which wolf will win?'
The old chief simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
The house started shaking last night after we turned the lights out to sleep. A few minutes before 1.00am the furniture in the room, the bed and the windows began rattling. Apparently, the epicentre of the quake, which registered a magnitude of 5.4, was in Market Rasen, about 50 miles to the south of us.
Everything is much quieter this morning.
