Feeling: Reflective......................................

I am putting some banners together for a person I know that is retiring. This guy I met a few years ago and I would not say we are friends but more acquaintances. Why am I doing the banners? No idea but I like to help people....make them feel good....happy. I get my kicks that way. Over the last month or so I have been allowed to see a part of this guy that I really donít care for. I saw it when he told me something about another person that is my friend. He did not realize this was a friend of mine. What it told me about this acquaintance is that he is very bitter and angry at the world for not being the way he wants it to be. Sad to be retiring and feel that way. The reason I write about this is because these banners are made up of pictures that were taken over the last 50 years of his life. He has 47 years on the job at retirement so it was a long run for him. As I look at these pictures I donít see a happy person. What a sad thing.
What a way to live a life. Constant battle and defense. Anger and resentment. Control and manipulation. What wasted energy................................................

There was a time when that could have been me. What lessons I have learned. Keep my eyes open and learn. Bury ego and listen. Let things flow through me and gather knowledge. Live and appreciate. That is all there is. Be in the world. Be part of the flow...................................

Things I am thankful for:.....................................

My walk this morning and drinking in the light of the sunrise like breathing the air........now that is being in the world................................

Those songs that make you want to take the one you love in your arms and dance slowly.........................................

Today I will see new things, feel new things and be a new person........................
