The Winds of Change

     Rarely do I compose a blog entry in the evening; there's more than one reason for that, but I'd hesitate to guess that the main one is that I tend to "wind down" at the eve of the day.  With that "winding down" comes a bit of reminiscing, and at times one can become a little maudlin too.
     There are changes afoot in my life, some can readily be seen necessary and for the good of all concerned, some leave me with a questioning spirit.   It seems rather trite at times to "look at every ending as a beginning" , but maybe in its overt triteness therein lies some sort of bandage for the soul.  For if indeed we didn't have the hope that things will continue on ,,, perhaps in a new form, but continue on none-the-less,,,would we be able to withstand some of the "changes" life hands us ?
    My heart is sad tonight, remembering what used to be and is no more.  And yet my heart smiles tonight knowing that although changes are afoot,  the most important aspects of my life remain strong and stable.  I will let the later comfort the former.

Update & Thoughts

     Must be the summer [ at least June & July ] of the Internet / computer.  Seems like no sooner had we gotten Internet service restored, then my computer "died".  I was [ thank God ] able to use MJ's laptop computer, but after my PC, his laptop computer seemed like playing with a l'il persons "tea set" complete with those teeny-tiny tea cups.  Alas, new computer is here, hooked up & running although I have opted not to transfer all my files from the last hard drive to this one [ if that was even possible, what with the demise of "old faithful ] so as to cut down on "junk" being attached.  THAT means I must relocate sites [ like Amazon, Home Depot, Staples, Travelers, etc. ] which is taking some time, but so be it.  At least at the moment ,,,,,,, I am HERE !!!
    Couple of comments this morning.  First of all, find a cool spot if possible, for a few days.  The heat wave hitting the USA is continuing = NOT complaining though,,,, last winter is STILL embedded in my mind = gEEEEEEEsh.  Just try to stay cool when / if possible.
    That being said, we spent a fair amount of time around family at the end of June and the beginning of July: graduation, wedding, grad party, ,, and it was actually quite refreshing.  There's something rather comforting about knowing what to expect and from whom to expect it.  Was also nice to be a part of things, to contribute a wee bit to the happenings, but not to have a great deal of the concern of things on one's shoulders.  Is that "age" or "common" sense.  [  I wrote the word common like I did as MJ & I have spoken much as of late about how "common" sense is not so "common" now days.]
At any rate, have enjoyed the family gig,,,, and CONGRATS to Jes-see-ca Lynn & Dana Hand as well as to Gregory Lewis ,,,,,, ye ol' Uncle is very proud of y'all.
   Last but not least WORDS>  I don't even know where to begin.  I am highly dismayed as of late at how people say/write one thing and yet do / act in another manner all together.  Due to time, I will simple repeat an old saying & leave it that ,,,,,,,for now.  ACTIONS speak LOUDER than words.  Get it ?

A huge THANKS to all who spoke up concerning yesterday's KASIYH Blog post. I admire each and every one of you. * * * ...
