No better fate greets us than waking up to another opportunity to do something.
Lucky are we who do – so far ahead of those who wake up with other attitudes. I prefer this form, this gratitude. I woke early – my Tuesday ritual routine followed.
This morning’s difference, as I plunked away at this keyboard were sounds of Isla and Alex making their simple act of breakfasting into raucous entertainment. Laughter before breakfast – now that’s medicine!
And … it seems they’ve survived being babysat by their grandfather last night. They are growing, and going, so fast I know the next time will be a whole new experience with different people.
Life is so simple …
Not a serious moment is required to please children.

morning walk: 6C/43F, strong wind and partly cloudy – Gusta wanted to run, I wanted to walk as slowly as possible – knee )(%@*&) is still with me. We survived the wind and my wobbles.
A quote from you: "it seems I never have a day when I don't have something in my head to write about": Lucky, lucky, you! Or maybe it is wonderful, wonderful, you! My question is this: Do you write for some organization or publication? If that is a naive question, please forgive me in advance. I really enjoyed your 'Advice and Good Hands'. ( I hope you don't mind that I sent it to LCB) What are the rules anyway? Should you have resided in Lethbridge I would have suggested a 'philosophy club' as reading over your words and ideas motivates deeper thinking. Time is always of the essence for me; a challenge to get done all waiting to get done with time left for enough creative juice to flow into some kind of expression. Who would have thought there was a guy with introspection and writing ability, a sense of humour... as well as a good hugger in that body? Who wouldathought??? I just read the ending of this email. If I understand correctly from your list, you muse every day and share. Now the best part will be the poetry...which I love reading and writing too!, SF, Lethbridge, AB
