See Where I Land
It’s Sunday morning and I got a little sunshine popping out of the East and some nasty looking clouds coming out of the Southwest. With the wind blowing in from the Southwest I may not be outside very long. But seeing that I’m a bit of a risk taker, I’ll just roll the dice and see where I land. Yesterday was a brilliant day, for a day that was supposed to be cloudy and dreary. I even got some clothes washed and hung out. Still I couldn’t think of anything in particular I wanted to say. So I stayed away from my Word app and laid around being lazy and bored.
Anyway, I slept well last night dreaming of flying an ultra-light airplane and diving through the clouds. I got up, called my father-in-law, made myself some decaf, and took some pills. You know maybe I should save my writing for something more spectacular. But it’s the doing that brings me the most pleasure. Rather it’s the mundane or the incredible, creating something from nothing is the greatest gift one is given.
I guess what I’m saying is, don’t sit on your creativity. Don’t tell yourself that you are not creative or talented. Each and every one of us has a passion and a desire. It is our heart’s escape button from the troubles of this world. Well it looks like I rolled 7’s, and the dark clouds have passed and the blue skies are back. Don’t take the world too seriously. Save your strength for when you really need it. Take a good hard look at the world around you. If the winds blowing and people are just going about their day, then you are where you need to land.

"creating something from nothing is the greatest gift one is given". I wonder if by chasing all those shiny lights and dreams we are forgetting about the small and wonderful little things around us. In my opinion your wisdom relies in dignifying those little moments that are not commonly perceived as spectacular. I've been missing reading your thoughts.
