I love that word, as if saying it meant we can see inside ourselves.
When we try, do we see what is real or what we wish was true?
I think we look for trouble sometimes where it doesn’t deserve to be looked for, doubt ourselves when we deserve so much better – because we look with a magnifying glass instead of a window, or we look in the rear-view mirror instead of keeping our eyes on the road ahead.
Must run, so I have to cut this short – I have a conference to attend.

morning walk: 8C/47F, we walked very early (I had a newsletter to get out), pre-sunrise in that twilight kinda-glow, a flight of geese honked overhead to Gusta’s delight but she was unable to get off the ground, but she gave chase for a short sprint that was good for both of us …
Are they typos or intended puns? In your "Tethered Knot" musing on the start of the month of June, a couple of interesting spelling and/or word choices caught my eye and my funny bone. The first was "it is June, it will last all day, from MOANING till noon and then on to midnight". I thought you greeted each new day by springing forth from your place of repose with vigour and enthusiasm, not moans and groans? The second was "A new month is adventure. A new month is BLAND canvas". The simple act of replacing a K with a D puts a whole new face to how you really feel about June. Both letters on the QWERTY keyboard are typed by the middle finger - you used your left hand (the sinister one) to type the letter instead of your right(eous?) one. Methinks Freud would have a field day interpreting your inner truths. Cheers, CM, Calgary, AB … P.S. I had an aunt named June. When she was pregnant, she was lauded with the song from Oklahoma that went "June is bustin' out all over".....
