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.

Just For Fun: Some Thoughts For Friday About Giving and Time
***This is just for fun. Prompted by an idea I had about giving someone your full attention; what that would be like. An idea about how to be expansive in what you offer to people. An idea about being gracious and giving without actually giving something of material value. Enjoy!
****And no, I don't know anything about poetry!:)
I have time.
Here. Sit right here.
The sun will be warm
Tea? No, you wan't coffee right?
That's right. Milk with a little sugar.
That spoon? Thanks. It is a pretty pattern isn't it?
Tell me. What happened?
Was there a lot of traffic?
No, don't worry.
The machine will get it. Really.
Then what happened?
I wouldn't have guessed it.
And then what? Wow. That's long isn't it?
I am sorry. That must hurt.
Maybe next time.
Sooner? Not that long then.
The sun is strong isn't it?
No, here. Let me get it.
Keep talking, I am listening. Then what?
That's too funny!
Were you surprised? What did you think?
Me too. How funny.
Already? Wait. Just one more.
It's only been a few minutes hasn't it?
Wasn't there something else? Yes, that's right.
Now I remember. You were there? Me too.
No, really. Anytime.
Here. There is plenty.
Don't forget these too.
It's a long way home. Be safe.
Honestly. Anytime. I have time.
