Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

Just a Warning
Blog Posted:1/4/2014 10:12:00 AM

 

With the holidays upon us, I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving.
 
Some people have been known to drive home carefully after a "social session" out with friends.  Well, two days ago, I was out for a holiday gathering and had several cocktails followed by some nice red wine.  Although feeling somewhat jolly, as they say, I still had enough common sense to know that I might be just a bit over the legal limit for driving.  That's when I did something that I've never done before; I took a cab home.
 
Sure enough, on the way home, there was a police road block, but since it was a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident.
 
This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it, and now that it's in my garage, I don't know what to do with it.

    LOL I'm proud of YOU! One time last summer I was behind a slow car GRUMBLING [I get a bit of road rage:(] and I thought God is trying to slow you DOWN! So I didn't pass the person [I was considering it even though it was a no passing zone] when sure enough around the next bend was a police car parked with the radar gun out! It's not that God works in such mysterious ways it's just WE too often don't listen!
