Okay, so much for channeling Dodie
Smith. This is just to say hi, I miss writing, I have all kinds of thoughts at the moment, I can't sleep, I'm safely moved into the new place but there won't be Internet until Saturday. So, yes, iPhone...
Some disconnected thoughts:
1- When I go out of my way to show kindness to someone I invariably find that he/she has a whole lot more to offer than I ever could have thought. I'm ashamed.
2- I talk about "setting the bar high"...working, being kind, a better musician, stable income, etc. I really need to show that I mean it. Look out world.
3- Discontentment is a strange and subtle and terrifying expression of rebellion. Strange: the person doesn't realize they're acting out of discontent. Subtle: a soft whine is deceitful, veiled, seemingly trivial. Terrifying: yeah.
5- Morning and evening prayer provide a rhythm. Rise, confess, forgive, thank, sing.....meditate, confess, forgive, thank, praise praise praise. It makes the days seemless. A continuous prayer. "Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God......have mercy on me, a sinner."
P. S. Willows shall resume on Sunday if my Internet is working. We have some catch up to do!
