Finishing things, beginning things – whether these sequential tasks are new, new, new or old, old, old – there seems to be too many of them.
Too much time required and too little desire to persevere until the end arrives.
We will NEVER be ready to leave this life because we’ll never be done with everything we’ve not yet done. Writing a difficult paragraph makes me weary …
But writing the next, and next one after that seems to be one of the best things I know how to do, so I’ll do that. I’ll do this until I drop.
Lots of finishing. Lots of new beginnings, along my way.
Another paragraph …
What, I wonder, is the difference between a new paradigm and a new paragraph?
Anything new is what we do next.
And what we do next takes us from this to that, from here to there, from stuck to un-stuck, from between-positions to taking a position on something, to taking time for someone or something much bigger than ourselves …
Then, one day, it will be a tomorrow like no tomorrow.
Some of us roll up in a Ferrari.
Some just feel that good without needing a car.

morning walk: 16C/61F, overcast, mild breeze – fantastic walk [nearly without pain!], Gusta happy and the morning calm – well, it calmed me … and now I am becalmed!
When I lost both my parents within a week, I had to talk to my adult children about what we needed to keep to remember them by. My advice was that they weren't the articles but that one or two things would remind them of their grandparents. That helped then to reduce the articles to those that really reminded them of their grandparents. Now I use same philosophy, CG, Cobourg, ON
