Full spectrum exploration, interior of my skull yesterday – anxiety riddled morning, splendid lunch visit with dear friend, relaxing afternoon with another – of city, of country, of mountains, appreciating beginnings of things, full circles of things, Sulfur Mountain hot pool and Banff Avenue, friends and strangers, reflecting on fifteen years of too many anxiety riddled mornings, not enough happy endings.
Some time spent this morning watching great video the New York Times put together – the late great (she died Thursday) Elaine Stritch. You don’t need to be an ardent Broadway fan to enjoy 24 minutes of revelation, memory – of a talented character, a dame, a broad – in fondest meaning of those words.
So full …
I found a little piece I like when I googled ‘things I wonder about’. I found these bits:
I wonder what started it all. I wonder why we must know pain. I wonder why people can't get along. I wonder how many of the ancient myths are true. I wonder what's out there beyond earth. I wonder why some people have it so good while other people suffer. I wonder when humans will become extinct and how. I wonder if in the future our civilization will be remembered. I wonder what awaits us in the very end.
I wonder if I could have spent all week, or many weeks, to make a better list than that.
… messages for all of us, in all of us, around every corner everywhere we look if we only take time to pause, look, listen, and feel.
