We can all make our reality rooms bigger, although they will never become large enough to engulf the entire world we owe it to ourselves to enlarge it. It would literally do this lady and others in her situation a world of good.
At times the weight of world is felt by all of us. A rest is in order even if it's for one day, this is how I cope with the stresses and noise.
A full circle of my life has occurred once again in my golden years, or are they silver years? I'll call them my full circle years, I don't feel old. My Mother-in-law is 98 years old and reads a book a week, she has read all of the best sellers and some from the bookcase that are decades old; she is a wonder.
We have a tendency to under appreciate those around us, the further they are from us the less affected we are only remembering them many years after our first encounter. After the passing of my friend Mike last summer I realized I had never expressed my appreciation of him as a friend, I need to start telling people just how important they are in my life.
My binoculars, camera, and video recorder are near ready to spring into action. Settling into the routine watching the Rabbits, Coyotes, and other critters as they show themselves it tells me the world is doing fine.
But that's the way every night went that I worked there, this stuff cannot be made up. I don't remember selling even one gallon of gasoline or bag of potato chips. I couldn't figure out why the place was even open all night.
The wind defines days like today blowing in from the ocean leaving whitecaps in its wake on the surface of the slough.
I found a 20-year-old Canon camera in the closet that belongs to my wife. She purchased it around 1998 to take pictures of houses she had for sale, back then it was state of the art.
A long process of change occurred starting back then, we at one point reached a point where the writing of men and women matched. Then an interesting event unfolded, the internet and the advent of "Brands".
I live on a river that leads to the ocean, my Spirit is free here, the freedom is easily felt. Leaving my home on a boat the world opens up, we are able to travel anywhere in the world from my doorstep. Every morning the wind blows inland from the ocean greeting us and inviting us to come home.
