Life is a journey. Retirement has its blessings. It gives me the chance to pursue some dreams. I hae no regrets being born to my generation. I thought then in 1990's that life was fast-paced.
Whew! Look at today's younger generation. Seems like they are on-call, with their cell phones and laptops on all the time. I am told that if they don't do this and they slacken off, there is always someone waiting to take their place.
This is April 2012- where oh where is Spring? We did not have much of the famous Canadian winter, but got a lot of icy days. I prefer snow to ice.
I love to write. I dreamt of a website back in 2003. I had a few essays and I thought at the time that was all I needed for a website. Today, I have over a hundred pages on my website.
Allow me to share this poem:
Oh yes- but Life is fragile,
more fragile than we would
elusive and shattered dreams,
dashed hopes and a journey from
somewhere to nowhere.
look at the bright side
Each day is a blessing,
so much to be thankful for.
Thank God for the gift of another day.
Almost the end of April 2012.
Spring just seem to stay away, too chilly for a Spring day.
It is a good time to sit down with a cup of coffee and reflect on Life. The internet is flooded with articles about spirituality, the meaning of Life, the Law of Attraction.
All it takes is, to take a minute and watch the news- so much violence, politicians are getting out of hand,natural disasters that bring with it devastation, death and social displacement.
We live in troubled times- economically, politically, socially,environmentally on global scale. There is a feeling of helpless for those who are in the frontlines of disaster.
Last year, the world was pre-occupied with the forecast of doom and gloom- the end of times on December 21,2012. The anxiety is wearing off. But- should society take some precautionary measures just in case the weather takes areal bad turn? Power can be down for days, I believe this is possible. Severe climate change can happen when least expected. It never hurts to be prepared.
