Glad Game: Down Time

Caption that…
modern leech treatment?
a) a bear neck
b) when the leeches don’t work
c) when traditional medicine does nothing, try really non-traditional
d) gummy bears to the rescue!!

Glad Game: Happened to look out the window when a Monarch butterfly went past. Small chaos happiness.

A whole basket of peaches and I have a sneaking suspicion that not one of them will be around long enough to make it into a recipe. Mm, juicy.

And the other day a Peregrine Falcon sitting on a ledge outside my window not blinking at me. (Under that gaze my primeval inner mouse squeaked.) Beautiful creature tho.

Glad for walk to no where for nothing except the time together spent doing it and whatever comes or doesn’t come of it.

I’d like to be peak game and beaver away and complete with clarity and focus the next thing on tap but, nope, that ain’t happening now. I can forgive myself that rather than lashing myself.

At each stage of life I thought the Big Thing was ahead. High school, University, Career. Each would be the end of this bass awkward, hit and miss, never on the ball and not caring sort of environment. Each was the same but with different people. So there is no pure maturity. No steady run of intensity. Any good better be appreciated before it goes its fleeting way again. Got to get over one bad because the next won’t displace, just pile on. A whole life can be frittered. Do well, do badly, still end up at the end of the same day, tired. May as well do well, given the choice.

Glad for flotation. Particularly in hot bath on rainy, chilly night.

Glad for written records. Closed off a 4 year old paper diary. So much happens over that length of time.

Glad after decades of being acquaintance to the world, I finally am getting to know some of the world as friend instead.

I’m way behind in some emails. But on top of some at least. (There goes that silver lining inside out over the clouds again.)

I checked thru 3 deadlines of 4 for last week.

Did I mention gummy bear goodness? Wait, I did. Ok, I’ll mention it again.

Glad to get a photo to see friend’s fiancĂ©e. (Glad she checks out and looks happy with him.)

The pants still fit. Glad that I haven’t gained weight. Sure, my butt has, but it’s made a declaration that it’s breaking off and making its own independent person, so I’ve lost weight, really.

Glad for Lao-Tzu who said, “The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.” It says don’t worry differently than Matthew or Max Ehrmann. Different source and cause but same hush.

Quote: “Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.” ~ Euripides
