What's It All About?

It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

The Big Picture

Overlook to Melones Reservoir-On the way to Sonora-Parrotts Ferry Bridge
The above photo is included not only for the excellent view but also as a reminder to keep an eye on the bigger picture. Part of doing that means searching for God's presence and trying to balance the things that are wrong with the things that seem more right. 

I have had a great day and will continue to try and do so. The weather is beautiful now and I have gotten some things done. Earlier today I ran several errands. The first was an appointment with my cardiologist (all good news there). The next stop brought me to the library which is always an enjoyable time for me. On my way out to the parking lot, I saw a woman getting out of her car. She left two little dogs in the car with the windows partially rolled down. I suspect something was on her mind because I heard her tell the dogs that they had plenty of water. I hesitated as I got in my car. What to do? San Andreas is a very small area and I drove to the bank. After that I drove back to the library. Her car was still there. I walked into the library and explained to the woman behind the desk about the dogs. She suggested I call the sheriff. On my way back through town I stopped at the Sheriff's office to give the information. That was it. I drove back home. Did I do enough?

I don't know the answer to that question just as I don't know a lot of things. I hope I did enough. What I do know is that I also had a great day yesterday. As part of that day I spent some time at a park where I saw an older lady assisting her two dogs. She was actually carrying one and was helping the other dog to get over a small curb and onto a grassy strip. Life is such a mixed bag isn't it? Eye on the big picture though:)

  1. Perhaps the Universe was trying to tell you you need two dogs.


I am not into censorship but instead just feel that some caution is in order. Please comment freely.
