Waking up in Evansville, Indiana. Feeling pretty good but the swelling under that burn area just won't quit. This motel has a heated pool so I think I should take advantage of that. Need to get back to swimming anyway.
I am thinking of starting a little writer's workshop and see how it goes. We live right near a cafe where this could easily be held.
Visiting family up here in IN. This morning going to yard sales, as usual. There is a Unitarian one nearby, which should have a lot of books.
I was thinking as we drove NW through Nashville that I am not obsessively worrying much. That could be real progress. The only thing is some I am not feeling severely threatened by life. Maybe I have learned to avoid those situations that can throw me back into obsessive worrying.
I like the saying "It is what it is." Worth meditating on. It reminds me to just accept the present, well meditate on it first and seek deeper understanding, then accept. Some things are harder than others. Like a split in my father's side of the family between me and them that has been going on...for decades. Should I try one more time to break through?
Politics...it's a long term fight, but I can't control the wide sweep of events...that's an understatement. But I can act according to my conscience and strive to make a little ripple in the water.
Do I really want to counsel again? There are so many charlatans out there. Even if I find a good setting and they want to hire me.
Love seeing all of this corn in IN!
I found a great saying by JFK: "If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity."
