Sometimes, things go wrong and it hasn’t mattered that I did everything right, and then there are other times that despite what I’ve done, things fall wonderfully into place and I am amazed. Is it coincidence? Circumstances? Prayer? Good Vibes? Karma?
Everyone has a different theory – belief – secret – assumption – but all I can say is – it is interesting, random, and wonderful when it happens. I think it is partly why I keep on keeping on. I am waiting for that next little spark of awesome life to light me up.
For instance: Grand kids! They are so perfect – just like their parents were (all said with tongue in cheek). They give me perfect love and acceptance (even in my jammies with my hair sticking straight up) as I love them. What a grand design, having grandchildren in the second half of life when I can appreciate how truly precious a child is, and I have patience now which makes it even better.
While I have been writing, I have been rocking out to some great music. My toes are tapping and I can hardly keep pen to paper. Music is incredibly powerful. Maybe we could replace religion with music. I posed a question of how to obtain world peace to a wise, worldly person not long ago, and their answer was “get rid of religion.” Now, don’t get your hackles up but think about it for a minute and answer this question. What is the basis of most wars throughout the ages? Exactly. Not that greed and power aren’t tangled up in the mess too. So, back to music. I wonder what would happen if the clergy didn’t preach “my way or the highway” and instead music was the only element of the service. Food for thought. This kind of thinking is what happens to me when winter lasts too long and I don’t get out enough. There are six new inches of snow outside my door this morning. I hear the snow shovel dancing in the garage – waiting for me to come let it out.
